Sights and Sounds


I have made it a point to surround myself with Scripture and positive thinking through books, social media, and anything else I feel I can glean wisdom from, over the past 6 months. I have needed to reframe my thinking, my prayers, my motives, my heart...so to speak.  And it started with my thoughts.  So as I tuned myself into the words being written or spoken around me, and made myself vulnerable to the meaning, and was astounded by the timing-the seemingly clear affirmation to my prayers, questions or concerns at that moment.  It is a true revelation to the gracious goodness of our Lord, and His sovereignty. He speaks to me in so many ways, if only I slow down enough to listen, and see.



For example, during a time of questioning working outside of the home or staying home...whether God was asking me to begin a time of rest...in fact, a year of rest...boom! >>

 When debating whether to semi-retire from CrossFit and forfeit the Open this year, to focus on my family and my marriage....THIS>>







 When my true motives for working out and pushing myself were being revealed in my heart...>>


 When we got a contract on our house and have no clear direction where to move and how we are going to find another house in 45 days...this exact image showed up 4 times on my IG account that day...>>

When feeling convicted very recently of how I have lost track of living missionally, how I have gotten caught up in social media posts and "making a life" for myself, a name for myself, upholding an image....I read this << and then, this >>
