Gabbi Lanzo  taking hold of life that is truly life

I have learned over and over again that Jesus is worthy of being worshipped whether or not we like the music. He doesn't have to play our favorite song. but then He does. and those days of praying and praising when it was hard to find the words make days like today that much sweeter. thanks Jesus for rejoicing over us with singing (Zephaniah 3:17) and making today feel like the best song I've ever heard!!!

at the first freshley of this year, God gave me vision for what this night would look like. there are no words to describe what it feels like the see the fulfillment of those promises. tonight was the culmination of two years of sacrificially investing. of digging in when all I wanted to do was run the other way. of trusting God that I would finally get to experience everything that I did tonight. freshley, thank you. Jesus, thank you. psalm 126:3 — the Lord has done great things for us and we are filled with JOY. #freshley1617

just some girls and their balls. hey @wrcstudents seniors, this two am bedtime was well worth spending the evening with y'all . thanks for letting us encourage you guys with just a few of the things we've learned about transitioning from high school to college. we are for y'all every step of the way!!!! PS these. two. I couldn't be more proud of the way they have allowed the Lord to use them these past two years in athens. they're way out of my league🎳

Jesus said to them, "come and have breakfast." — john 21:12, and all God's people said AMEN hallelujah

my gurl forever. it's pretty wild to me to think about the fact that we could've been born in completely different centuries or our houses could have been just a few more miles apart (or you could have stopped being my friend while I bossed you around for the first 12 years of our lives), but Jesus chose us for one another. and isn't that the biggest blessing? because I could not have handled the past twenty years without you, @haleybrooklynn. you deserve the world!!! celebrating you even from 100 miles away today — happy birthday!!!!!!

I have a lot of feelings and not enough words to match. Jesus, you are so, so faithful. it has been the greatest joy and honor to walk these girls through their first year in athens. freaking. WORLD. CHANGERS. #freshley1617

spring cups and beauty and the beast and finally having all four roomies in one place at one time✨ my heart might explode. I am forever grateful for friends who will call me on my 💩, laugh with me, cry with me, and love me so well — living with you three is just the best!!!! (plz enjoy this montage of me and @jasminedanee failing at boomerang)

*pretends I'm at @westridgechurch* thankful for the next best thing when my heart is missing home.

“something’s off with you today. like with your face.” is not exactly my favorite way to be greeted at work. “you don’t have that good attitude you always have.” what’s up, conviction? 🙄

I don’t know where you’re at today. I don’t know if you’re in a technical “position” of leadership. I don’t know if that’s your biggest prayer or the LAST thing you would want to be doing. but I do know that you are a leader. whether you like it or not, someone, somewhere considers YOU a leader, and is watching the way that you live.

I read a quote yesterday that stopped me in my tracks. “it’s hard to joyfully and consistently proclaim the gospel when all you do is complain about your mission field.” y’all, every single day is an opportunity to work as if you were working for the Lord (colossians 3:23). every single day is an opportunity to be salt and light to a dark world (matthew 5:13-16). every single day is an opportunity to outdo one another in showing honor (romans 12:10). and my sweet co-worker’s comment reminded me that the stakes are far too high for us to get caught conforming to the patterns of this world (romans 12:2). we have to do better. I have to do better – to shine as a light in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation (philippians 2:14-15). your life is a message – make sure it’s one you want to be sending.

mission trip planning with my favorite human🌍 we're trying to peace out of america for the month of july — so if you have any leads/advice/money/coffee you want to send our way hmu!!!!!!!

God honors big prayers because big prayers honor God — spent a good bit of yesterday praying and less than twenty-four hours later, Jesus has started moving in ways that I didn't even think were possible. He's reaaaal faithful, y'all and I've never been more excited for what's to come!!!! 🙌🏼 #youshouldbehereccm

everyone keeps asking what my favorite part of my trip to nicaragua was, and there are so many things that make the top of that list. but there's nothing quite like watching students go through the same experiences and challenges that have changed your life over the past six years. watching my super seven pumas preach the gospel boldly, pray for and encourage one another, serve without complaining, and handle every obstacle (even a lost suitcase!!!!!) way better than I ever would have — that was, hands down, the best part. I want to be like them when I grow up. loving and missing y'all a little extra today 💓💓💓
