Hey @emma_bouck, I miss you... and this sunset.

• Day 30...In an attempt to utilize social media to bring more positivity to people's day, I am participating in the #praiseworthychallenge (created by @alyssa_m_s ) (30 days/ 30 posts) of things I can praise God for, to help you and me grasp Gratefulness in unexpected places.

Today I’m praising God for second chances. We made it folks. For the second time I have spent 30 days straight overwhelming your insta feed. I want to say thanks for sticking with me. The first time around, this challenge was a lesson in overcoming. This time I found myself facing that same message but from a different vantage point. This second chance has taught me what it means to be bold in my faith. And overcoming my worries of how others may perceive that. I spent my first semester at Iowa afraid of showing me. I kept the most important part of me to myself out of fear of judgment or disagreement. However, I’ve learned that I shouldn’t let others opinions deter me from living out my faith the best I can. So today I’m praising God, because he is the ultimate giver of second chances. He loves us despite our certainty to fail again and again. And thanks to him, I’m working on overcoming my doubts. So I’m pretty grateful for his unending grace. Here’s to round #2 it’s been a journey. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Today I’m praising God for a cute Sunday brunch! I’m thankful to spend time with people I love, and show them around my new home & all the intricate things I love about Iowa City:) Today I found joy in the little centerpieces, and all the other girly frills that came with the morning! Here’s to finding Gods beauty in the little moments, and the little details. Because wow it reminds me how blessed I am. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin,”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭6:26-28‬ ‭ESV‬‬

I am thankful for her advice, humor, and passing down her hair tricks;) Here’s to a wonderful weekend spent with my pretty mamma! Love you x a million!! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Today, because it’s international women’s day, I’m praising God for these beautiful women I call my sisters! Being in a sorority has provided me with tons of opportunity, including meeting and being inspired by all of these lovely ladies. I’m thankful for how amazingly unique and talented everyone of us is, and it’s pretty dang cool to see how much we can accomplish when we all come together! So here’s to all my sisters, love you ladies!! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Today I’m praising God for community & fellowship:) Having a group of friends that pray for you, and grow with you in Christ has been one of the greatest blessings to me this semester. And today I’m really just really thankful to have that. Having people who can hold you accountable, love you, and learn with you is such a blessing.

Today I’m praising God for clarity and focus. I’ve found myself lately being unable to sit still. I’d find my mind wandering to spring break, or my final essay due in two months, or that one rehearsal in April. I could never find focus. But today, God gave me the clarity to remember, he has my future figured out, and he’ll provide. He gave me the focus to think about right now, and prioritize what needs to be done first. So don’t stress about tomorrow, it will all get done:) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

Today my heart is full. I left the last dance class I was teaching feeling so fulfilled, because instead of trying to be perfect, I was me. I’m praising God for honesty. Today God reminded me that being me, my truest self is my best self. Standing in who I am, a child of God, and what I believe is what makes me the most successful, and makes choosing joy that much easier. I’m thankful that God and his word are truth, and because of Him I can be imperfect, and messy, and unprepared, and he will still love all of me. When you are honest, and follow the truth, God takes away every worry about being good enough. You can just be you. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“Teach me your way, O Lord, that I may walk in your truth; unite my heart to fear your name.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭86:11‬ ‭ESV‬‬

"If anything IS excellent or praiseworthy - think on these things" Philippians 4:8 • Today I’m praising God for transition. I’ve been seeing a lot of what it means to “grow up” lately. Life is packed of moments of transitions. Endings, beginnings, starting over. But it’s often difficult to truly see where God is going with certain transitions. For me the greatest change has been relationships lately. Friendships especially. I’m learning ever single day what it means to grow, and change. God is putting me through a transition in my relationships for a reason, I may not know what it is yet... but I’m going to be thankful for the work he’s doing, regardless of how challenging it may seem at the time. So if you’re in a transition period, just remember that when you get to the next destination it will be clearer, and God will continue to help you though the change. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“Better is the end of a thing than its beginning, and the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit. Be not quick in your spirit to become angry, for anger lodges in the bosom of fools. Say not, “Why were the former days better than these?” For it is not from wisdom that you ask this. Wisdom is good with an inheritance, an advantage to those who see the sun.” Ecclesiastes 7:8-11 ESV

Today I’m praising God for opportunity... a lot of days it’s easy to get caught up in the little battles I haven’t won. Or the little failures along the way. But today I’m choosing to recognize how truly blessed I am to be pursuing my absolute dreams every single day. Yes it is stressful, and painful, and frustrating. But God has given me this burning passion for what I do, and he’s also given me the opportunity to chase that passion. Today I’m thankful that I wake up every morning and go make art. Because it was God who opened the door for me to continue dancing, and to pursue it as a career. So, I hope that every move and step I take honors Him.
