Adair Elizabeth  in love with Love Himself. oklahoma is my home. morning runner. my goal is to be kindhearted, share my story, and always smell like flowers.

My weekend was pretty much the best weekend I've had in awhile. I got to see Florida Georgia Line, go to a Thunder basketball game, and hang out with my family. While that might all be amazing and rad, my body is suffering from it today. I haven't really talked too much about something I'm still dealing with because I just want to finally feel normal for once. It's been almost 6 months since I started my cleanse. I've had no sugar, gluten, or dairy and I'm just trying to get rid of all the toxins out of my gut from a pain pill a took 2 years ago. I honestly cannot believe I'm still having to deal with this situation, but I'm trying to stay positive and rely on God for strength and comfort. It's sometimes hard for me to look back and see how far I've come in my journey of healing. As humans, we're always rushing. My dad has to constantly remind me how far I've come and to keep trusting Him. While I don't need any suggestions, I would love me some prayers. You know what's weird though? Brokenness is beautiful. It’s breathtaking. You may not see it now, but in time you will begin to realize how amazing and glorious our God really is, and how you absolutely can find the beauty in every tough time you encounter. I've truly learned that through my chronic pain.

I have mad love for Spring for this very reason. My allergies strongly disagree...

Author of all my hope
Keeper of all my days
Jesus You go before
Your grace has made a way
Holy is the Lord Almighty

Nothing in this world can strengthen our souls like the quiet moments with Jesus, when His words become strength to us and His presence settles upon us.

Reality...
I'm laying in bed with my hair in a topknot with my retainer in.

God is no stranger to pain. When you cry to Him, He isn’t looking down on you and saying, “Here we go again.” He’s leaning down, feeling every tear of betrayal, anxiety, and grief that you are crying, and saying “I know. I remember. I know.” I think that's something that took me forever to learn while bed ridden with chronic migraines for so many years. But I've realized that Jesus doesn't give us pain and suffering, but love. So much of it and more.

I know that God is faithful & I know that He’s good. Some days that’s all I need to know.

You are a unique, unrepeatable being, that will fascinate God forever.

You alone are enough. You have nothing to prove to anybody.
-Maya Angelou

God allows the path to be difficult because He intends on refining us and preparing us for our place of promise. He is intent on extracting from us, that which our enemy would love to leverage against us.
God loves us too much to promote us before we are ready.

Your head is a living forest full of songbirds.
-E.E. Cummings

Trust me, the smell of these were outta this world.
