I bet that if you had a stomach virus, you would never intentionally walk up to your loved ones and puke in their faces. Gross! Who would ever do that to anyone, much less than to the people who really matter to them?

Reasonable people try to stay away from others when they're sick. They do it out of mercy and kindness. They stay away until they are well, and no longer contagious. If the sickness doesn't seem to be passing, they get to a doctor to do their best to resolve the situation. Being sick is no fun for the one who is sick or for the rest of the family.

Why is it that we let emotional issues go unsorted for years and years? When the emotional pain buttons in our lives get pushed, the fallout hurts the people around us at least as much it hurts us. It’s time to disconnect those buttons.
πŸ—
You know, the secret areas of pain that you keep hidden and hope that no one ever finds out about? I have news for you, people may not know the specifics, but they can certainly feel the painful symptoms.
πŸ—
If you aren't willing to get healthy for your sake, at least do the hard work of getting yourself sorted out for the sake of the people you love. You really don't want people around you to feel like they have to spend their whole lives walking on eggshells.
πŸ—
Don't delay. Get the help you need. Make an appointment with a counselor or reach out to get with a mature, trusted mentor.

I had a crazy dream last night that I ate a peanut butter cup. When I woke up, I just thought about how I don’t even want one at all.
πŸ™Œ

I LOVED my green walls for 12 years, but it was time for a change. I spent the day updating the living room and kitchen, and I’m happy, happy, happy with the new color.

I’m also enjoying seeing new things in the art work! The paintings are by @angela_meijer

IT CAN BE EASY TO THINK that other people can do things that you can't do. It's easy to look at people who are doing the things you wish you could do and think that they have something you don't have. They do: a different mindset.
πŸ—
You see, I can sit back thinking that I can't do the really cool things that other people are doing because I'm just me, or I can realize that they're just them.
πŸ—
If you want to go to Italy or some other dream destination, go ahead and get your passport. That's the first step. Next, ask Jesus how He wants to provide the plane ticket. Maybe there's a temporary job He wants to open up to bring in the resources you need for the trip.
πŸ—
If you want to start a business, google how to write a business plan, and then write it. You don't have to have everything figured out right away. The first step is to do some research. If you are reading this, it shows that you have access at the tips of your fingers to loads of helpful information to get you started.
πŸ—
If you want to improve your relationships, you can. You might have to be really vulnerable and have some awkward conversations, but what's on the other side of that is better than living with unhealthy patterns of behavior for the rest of your life.
πŸ—
If you want to make some changes towards good health, you can do it. I'd even be happy to coach you along your health journey.
πŸ—
Key idea: Don't disqualify yourself and think that you can't do the awesome things that you see other people doing. You are just as much of a person as they are. You truly can take steps towards your destiny starting today!

NOW IS NOT the time to just sit around and wait for your promised land to come to you. It's time to get up and forcefully move into your promised land.
πŸ—
It may seem like the process of getting to your dreams is taking too long, but the process is actually more about you becoming the person you will need to be, so you can stay and thrive in the promised land once you get there.
πŸ—
Before you enter, you need to pack. You need to take some steps to get prepared.
πŸ—
So Joshua ordered the officers of the people: Go through the camp and tell the people, β€˜Get your provisions ready. Three days from now you will cross the Jordan here to go in and take possession of the land the Lord your God is giving you for your own.' Joshua 1:10-11
πŸ—
This is the time to form new habits. What new habits do you need in order to be able to rock it when you get into your promised land? Maybe you need some:
πŸ—
-new habits of health
-new habits in relationships
-new habits in your connection with God
πŸ—
Some of the things I've been doing to get ready for my next season are:
πŸ—
-organizing my email and digital files so I have a clear place to work from
-getting healthy so I have the physical and mental stamina for the journey
-making sure I am keeping strong heart connections with my husband and kids
πŸ—
Do the work today, build your spiritual, relational, and physical strength now, so that you will be able to fulfill all of the things God has for you in the future.
πŸ—
Now is not the time to sit back and be passive. It's time to take one step at a time in the direction of your promised land!

Living under the weight of shame is a weight that no one should ever have to live under. Unfortunately, we tend to stay stuck in that place year after year because shame causes us to hide.
πŸ—
To break free from it, you have to come into the light. You have to take a risk and be honestly seen for who you are.
πŸ—
When you choose to be vulnerable and honest, you are choosing humility. God promises that He gives grace to the humble. This grace is the power to break free from all that shame. It is the path to freedom.
πŸ—
You can turn your heart toward the Lord today, and He will be right there ready to take you into His heart.
πŸ—
When you turn to Him and choose to stop doing the things that are separating you from Him, He will remove your shame and heal your heart.
πŸ—
You haven't gone too far that God can't redeem you. There's no place you can hide from His love. Even if you were to run to the ends of the earth, He would still be right there chasing you down to embrace you.
πŸ—
His love for you is so big, bigger than your mind could ever grasp. It's not too late for you. You haven't gone too far.
πŸ—
Instead of your shame you shall have double honor, and instead of confusion they shall rejoice in their portion. Therefore in their land they shall possess double: everlasting joy shall be theirs. Isaiah 61:7
