Something happens when we move in surrender. On this Friday, friend, will you take hold of the God-whispered invitation to take a risk?

Host a dance party at the stoplight in your car.

Compliment the grocery cashier of her beautiful smile.

Go ahead and make that pumpkin whatever recipe you’ve been eyeing with intimidation.

Grab a paint brush and slather that gorgeous hue on the wall.

Ask God to show you in His special way who He thinks you are.

Actually take God for His word when He does show you who you are in His eyes.

Throw out dinner plans and eat ice cream with your kids.

Try on that tutu skirt just for the heck of it.

Yep. That sounds like a glorious plan for a Friday. To taste, see, live in, move in the goodness of God in risk and surrender.

How about you? How does this inspire you to move in surrender and take a risk? Leave a comment!

My fist grips and white knuckles that *thing* I’m so viscerally and emotionally attached to. This *thing* brings temporary happy yet tears me up inside. Then there is God.

He gently opens my clinched fist finger by finger and He kindly asks me to surrender. So with open yet shaky hands I do. I surrender. And with open hands I receive His MORE and BETTER. Because this MORE and BETTER is more of JESUS. It is straight from my Father’s hand and won’t tear me up. It’s abundant and it brings LIFE. It is good. It is free. It is freedom. It is MORE of Jesus.

Let me know if you are open handed ready for God’s MORE and BETTER. 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻

I love birthdays. I love making a big deal of my friends and family. And honestly, I love my birthday just as much! Birthdays are a whole month in my world and I’m shameless about it. This year for my birthday I asked my parents for a lemon tree, which was out of the norm for me. I’m usually all about gift cards to the art supply store so I can go crazy buying colorful paints, but not this year. You see, two houses up the street from me is this gorgeous tree, and a few times a year I see an abundance of juicy fruit hanging off, begging to be picked. Unfortunately, proper neighbor etiquette dictates that I can’t simply walk over and pick the juicy fruit for myself. I drive by that tree daily and yearn to stop, pick, eat and enjoy this gorgeous fruit. *But, it’s not mine for the taking.

My very own fruit tree represents something new and fresh to me lately. I’ve been wrestling with the Lord about my desire for dreams and desires that I see Him fulfilling in others. It reminds me of that age-old adage, “the grass is always greener,” but it’s more like, “the fruit is juicier over on her tree, in her yard, Lord, that You are harvesting.” And in His kindness, God is showing me that His glorious fruit is sweet and juicy right where He has placed me, in my own yard. *God’s goodness is mine for the taking.
I absolutely loved writing this blog post for @revelationwellness. Click the *link in profile* to read more about how God’s goodness is there for YOU to take hold of!

Rhinestone Rodeo? Well I can definitely do that! Sparkle and lots of hairspray for this Saturday night.

Because at the end of the day, if we lay our head down confident that we are seeking after God, listening to His voice and walking in love out of what He speaks...we know we are living out and living in our calling. The seeking, listening, loving, walking forward makes for a good, good day. And the sparkle in our eye comes from knowing Jesus speaks over us {well done My good and faithful servant}. That is what I want dictating my day. His voice, His love. That is all. So let’s start this Thursday with the end in mind. So good right?! Take a deep breath in that and move forward, friend!

I have the word {season} on my heart this week. Maybe it’s because we have one cool fall day here in Texas that I’m dreaming turns into two cool fall days and more. The seasons we are in...the movement of God in our lives...if we choose to surrender to His goodness and plan.

If this season you are in pains you, please hear that God sees, knows, and holds your heart tenderly in His mighty hand.

If this season is one of abundance, sit in gratitude while asking for a deeper thing He is working in your heart. The deeper is GOOD!

And might we be women who don’t stop at Jeremiah 29:11 praising Him for prosper, and plans BUT let’s keep to His word on through Jeremiah 29:12-14 where we seek God with whole hearts and expectancy that He will be found. In the midst of whatever season, God is good and greater and deeper and offers more of His presence. It’s there for the taking!

Will you leave one word in the comments with what season you are in? Here to pray and cheer you on!

I’m stepping into a new season. It’s bigger than new opportunity or new tasks to perform. It’s a newness of freedom. But really this new found freedom was always available. Right for the taking. Yet I didn’t grab hold because of fear, insecurity, doubt and more. No need to sit in what I didn’t grab hold of. Nope. Because new grace, new freedom, renewed goodness comes in the light of a new day. So on this new morning of Monday, I want that for YOU, friend.

Will you take hold of this truth and fly free with it TODAY? Jesus did the work on the cross. It is finished. We are FREE to live in our calling, free to worship Him by thriving in who He created us to be. {so if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed John 8:36} So good, right?

There’s not much holding us back when we take HOLD of this truth. Jesus is bigger than our fear, bigger than our insecurity and bigger than that sin which held us in bondage in the past. So fly free today. I’m throwing up all the 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 with this and heading into Monday with confidence. Are you with me?

My forever football date. Gig Em Ags. #aggiefootball

When your mom orchestrated a girl’s night at Roundtop and your husband paves the way to sneak out. You go! Junk Gypsy Prom here we come!

For those hurting and healing. Jesus be near. For those questioning why, Jesus be near. For those wrapped in anger and violence. Jesus be near.

With hectic fall schedules and *all the things* on our plates, it feels good to boil it down to what matters at the end of the day. This is what I send my kiddo off to school with each morning. Taking it to heart for myself this Monday. **Leave a comment with a 🙌🏻🙌🏻👍🏻👍🏻👊🏻👊🏻or your favorite emoji that you are tracking with me on this. Have a good Monday y'all!!

So grateful for sweet friends to come and make a big deal about this dude I love so much. Friends, Aggie football, and a ginormous waterslide make for an epic birthday party for sure.
