Whoa, the Spirit is churning my heart so much these days! There are so many layers to what is happening in the world and I want to encourage you to 1. receive what the Lord says to/through Habakkuk 2. put on a new lens through which you see the world. Maybe this looks like shifting… Continue reading He meets us on the street corners.
Oh gosh, it has been a while (I keep saying that?) and I can feel it in my bones. I need to release. College is crazy, new job is awesome, free time is limited, quiet time is starving. This week has been an evaluation week for me, and I've concluded that I'm doing too much to… Continue reading the woman at Starbucks.
Today I woke up with the peace of the Lord engulfing me. Though it was early in the morning, I knew that I'd have this Friday to regroup and relax. Jesus Calling, Scripture, a little journaling, prayer. Stay away from Facebook and Instagram. Get my workout in and done. This is generally my morning rhythm.… Continue reading when you’re (..I’m) offended.

"God knows our hearts and dreams..." This is such an encouraging truth from one of Jefferson and Alyssa Bethke's podcast, especially in this (hopefully quick!!) season of seeking out internships, jobs, and other opportunities to explore and grow in my giftings. I'm struggling currently with desiring a life that I currently don't have; I forget… Continue reading dreams and the Truth.
Right now I'm sitting alone with Celestial cinnamon-apple tea in my friend's home with their dog- not as weird as it sounds, I'm housesitting. Today, after I sat with a friend at church and went to lunch with my mom and I's community group, I decided that I wanted to listen to sermons by two… Continue reading I let go of two things.
The struggle to live in the present when you have vision for the future is not easy! As a visionary and futuristic dreamer, I can attest to the wretchedness of waiting.

But it seems that when the opportunity for me to do so arises, I'd rather busy myself with distractions and activity. One of the things I… Continue reading Jesus permits you to breathe.
