She couldn't find her footing. Every time she made contact with the floor it slipped away from her. As hard as she tried to break through to the surface, she only sunk deeper. Her lungs burned from her last inhale of water. She was frozen in time not knowing which way was up or how to get there. Fear, panic, desperation gripped at her in waves as she flipped and turned in the current. All her striving, and doing, and work could not save her now. Just as she was about to let the darkness envelope her, she saw a light. It was distant, but it was sure. She reached out with all that she had left and realized it had been there all along.

It’s my favorite little girl’s 2nd birthday! I can’t even believe it! I FaceTimed her this morning and all she wanted to do was show me her balloons and the dog she got. She has the sweetest little heart and is so full of joy. I’m so glad I get to be her auntie! Love you sweet Aria and I can’t wait to give you your gift and get some cuddles in over Thanksgiving! Xoxo 🎉💕😘

This verse. This season. YES. .
"They feast on the abundance of your house, and you give them drink from the river of your delights. For with you is the fountain of life; in your light do we see light.” Psalms‬ ‭36:8-9‬ ‭ESV‬‬
.
Be reminded that He has abundance for you. Not just little things but big beautiful things that you can't even imagine. Delight in Him as He delights in you.

I really don’t think I have enough words to describe to you what is happening at Jesus School. Incredible just doesn’t encapsulate it. All I can tell you is that I feel like my heart and actually my entire being just keeps being stretched and stretched and stretched in the best way possible. And mostly, I have NEVER been more in love with Jesus in my whole life.
.
One thing I can tell you is, don’t neglect the secret place with Him. It’s there in the stillness where you get to know His voice. It’s something personal with you and Him. You can’t maintain a relationship with Him by attending school or church or by serving or by hanging out with other believers. That intimacy between you and Him has to be cultivated constantly. Get alone with Him every day and ask to KNOW HIM. He has so much for you there.

Thank you to everyone who has sown into my Jesus School journey whether by prayer or financially. I appreciate it so much and am believing for such an increase in your lives. Please consider partnering with me in this season. Here is the link to my give send go account (in my profile). I also have venmo or cashapp under elleizahbeth”. Thank you so much! God bless you all!

Right here by your heart is where I want to stay.
You feel like home - warm and safe and tender and beautiful.
You make my heart come alive.

Today was fun.

Last weekend I got away just for a moment. I went to my favorite place and I sat there with Jesus. In a season where I am getting filled so much and around people all day long (tough for this introvert), I needed to escape to my favorite place with my favorite Person. And goodness gracious it was everything.
.
It’s always a good idea to unplug and get away and be refreshed. Mine is obviously the beach. But, not the commercial touristy beaches, the private ones. Where’s your favorite place to do that?

I was overcome by this sunset last weekend. It was unreal. Nobody was around. Just me and Jesus. It was like He painted it for me. And not just painted it but, lit it on fire. That’s how His love is though, consuming and breathtaking and exhilarating. There is nothing like it. There is no one like Him. His love is so personal yet for everyone. His love is so fierce yet gentle. His love is free for us yet cost Him everything. I’m utterly amazed over and over by Him. He keeps on blowing me away. I’ve never been more in love with the One who holds my heart.

"When we walk with the Lord in the light of His Word,
What a glory He sheds on our way!
While we do His good will, He abides with us still,
And with all who will trust and obey.
-
Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.
-
Not a shadow can rise, not a cloud in the skies,
But His smile quickly drives it away;
Not a doubt or a fear, not a sigh or a tear,
Can abide while we trust and obey."

"Home wasn't a set house, or a single town on a map. It was wherever the people who loved you were, whenever you were together. Not a place, but a moment, and then another, building on each other like bricks to create a solid shelter that you take with you for your entire life, wherever you may go." - Sarah Dessen

I have learned this to be so true in my life. I have lived in 4 different states, had more jobs than I can count on both hands, traveled to many places, and met so many incredible people along the way. God always has a way of reminding me that I am called to Him, not a place. And, wherever He takes me, awaits new people to meet and love and show me I'm home. I get to call many places "home" since my heart is in so many places. Thanks Jesus. What a blessing!

You guys have heard me say how important it is to write down what God is teaching you and showing you. I have every single one of my journals. They are my ebenezers, my victories, my lessons learned. Right now I’m sketching out what I want to paint on my journal for @jesusschoolorlando. Not only did I buy one with blank pages but a blank cover too. This year is so significant. I can feel it in my bones. I feel the weight of it. I want my journal to reflect my heart in this season. I want to visualize the things that the Lord has been speaking to my heart. I know that the things in this journal inside and out are going to be valuable. I know this journal will be my favorite one. I can’t wait to fill all the pages.

Roomies and no make-up and self timers and bday celebrations. I’m pumped that I get to spend my next 9 months with these beautiful humans.
