Sometimes your hair is gross from not washing it and you just wear the clothes you slept in the night before and wore the day before.
God doesn’t care what you look like, the mistakes you made yesterday, the doubts you had about His healing power, the stubbornness you had when He told you to just come. He cares that you showed up...and some days that’s all you can do.
The past couple of months I have pleaded, accepted, threw fits and gave up on repeat. Through it all I could hear His still strong voice tell me β€œI am here, trust me”.
Trust is hard when all we want is the answer, to see the end picture and know what it all looks like.
I am more ok with not knowing the answer, but knowing Him. More. I need to know Him more.
Fear and people pleasing has stolen so much from my life, but I realize it wasn’t even stolen. It was given by me, with open hands. I give my dreams, desires, convictions, joy, passions over so quickly to please others and my own doubt. β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”-
I want to serve Him with my whole heart. Focus on who He has called me to be. I want to serve others freely. Give love and joy without expectation of return. Be open and transparent, but not be a doormat. No one said being a Christian meant letting people walk all over you. God made me strong, smart and courageous. I need to be able to be kind and strong at the same time. I need to be able to speak truth and stand up for what is right in a way that is covered in love. β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”-
I am thankful for the brokenness that this season has brought. Through the brokenness I see Him rebuilding, stripping away, pruning, cleaning house and preparing me for something greater. I hope you will join me, because I believe He has something greater for you too.

Up close and personal. Throwback to a time not long ago, I use to super get ready every day πŸ˜‚ hello pores. no filter.

I don’t need a lot, as long as I have them ❀️

Quick trip to see my sister and her family for a day. πŸ’• she understands me in ways no one else does. We have been through so many things together and have grown in ways immeasurable. I am thankful to have a sister that knows and treasures my heart through it all. Thank you for loving me and my family, listening to me and taking care of me when I am down. I am thankful beyond words. πŸ’•

Good morning! Since I’ve been on a little unplanned break from things I seriously thought it would be easy to just slip away and no one would notice. I thought, well... everyone is on YouTube now and I’ve done it for so long, what’s the difference? Yes. Total self pity mode. After talking to my hubby and some sweet friends yesterday, I was so encouraged. The world needs more Jeannie...but you know what? The world needs more YOU too. We all have something to offer. Every single one of us. And we all have influence, whether we acknowledge it or not. No one, not one person has the same experiences, outlook or heart just like yours. You are a gift to the world, and we miss out when you choose not to share it. Today I am reminded and believing that God can use me, just as I deeply believe He can use you. Keep moving, keep marching, keep pushing....the world needs more of YOU! πŸ’•πŸ’•

I have learned too often that the ones who look strong are the ones that have been hurt the most, starved for affection and have overcome unimaginable things. Fought battles alone, and had to overcome. Being strong was the only option. We often think that the strong ones don’t need help, they got this, and that they have things under control. They often don’t ask for help because they aren’t use to help being there. Just because they don’t look like they need a hug and or encouragement doesn’t mean they don’t. They might need it more. Shout out to the strong ones. I see you. I see you struggling, I see you going above and beyond. Gritting your teeth and enduring. Hang on sweet friend, hang on. Know that you are so loved, so treasured, and your efforts don’t go unnoticed. Keep pushing forward, keep trying and keep staying humble. Perseverance builds character, and in the end the journey will teach you things that an easy path couldn’t have. We laugh louder, cry harder, appreciate more, empathize stronger, live louder, and love deeperπŸ’•

Wish me luck πŸ˜‚πŸ˜…
