We as human struggle with complete honesty, relationally, but mostly with ourselves. It’s hard to look in the mirror + admit our shortcomings. Admitting that we are wrong is admitting that we need help + to need help seems weak or at least that’s how we have been brainwashed to think. We end up secluding ourselves on a deserted island, alone in our blind brokenness, desperate for change but too stubborn to ask for it. Alone is the key word there. Because alone seem safe, but I could not be more dangerous. Don’t fool yourself into thinking that going through life alone is bravery. You need people. You need help sometimes. You need | Him | + as soon as you reach out for help, He is there with arms wide open. Collapse into the clearing of His grace, + watch the waves of His beautiful love bring you to a peace that you never knew existed. Experience life hand in hand with the One who will N E V E R leave you. So be real, be vulnerable, ask for help..it’ll be the best decision you’ve ever made + the start to a journey of freedom.Bruneau Dunes State Park
I know posting at 10 pm is frowned upon, but ask me if I care?! I don’t [obvi]..but I do care a lot for this human. Allyx, you are one of my greatest friends. I am so thankful for all the laughs, deep convos, + memories made. You truly are the embodiment of beauty. Don’t you EVER forget that! I love you sista. 4ever + always. Fun fact: people have asked us if we are twins..I don’t see it, but I definitely take it as a compliment! [photo cred: the amazing @feleashia ]
My sister-in-love + I haven’t always gotten along..in fact, we use to hate each other. Praise the Lord for His grace + restorative nature, bc now, we are two peas in a pod. Ry, your one of my best friends + the sister I’ve always wanted. Just a quick shoutout to say thanks for always believing in me + letting me be vulnerable with no judgment. I miss you like crazy, but I know that even from miles away you’re my biggest advocate + friend. Love ya sis [also, I promise she isn’t mad at me here...at least I think]
My sweet friend is heading off to Africa tomorrow! Woohoo! She is such an inspiration + a powerhouse for the Lord. Although I will miss her (+ secretly wanna hide in her luggage), I am so stoked for the amazing things she is gonna accomplish there. Keep her + the team in your prayers as they set the country of Africa on fire for Jesus. I love you, Koonsie + I’m so, so, soooo proud of you!!
-All Thinking- I would rather be what God chose to make me than the most glorious creature that I could think of; for to have been born in God’s thought and then made by God is the dearest, grandest and most precious thing in all thinking. ~C.S. Lewis Wise words from a very wise man. Friends, I encourage you, LOVE YOURSELF. I mean genuinely...admire the workmanship of your Creator manifested in you. Don’t be prideful or arrogant, rather honoring to the Artist who so intricately shaped you. He is so proud of you + admires you daily. You wanna bless His heart, LOVE YOURSELF!
HBD Jimmy!!! I don’t even know how to put into words how much I love you. You’re my best friend. We have always had each others backs, no matter what. Thank you for being so genuine + real, two qualities this world desperately needs. You have such a high call on your life + I am honored that I get to witness you change the world. I love you little brother, even if you are wayyy cooler than me (which I am only admitting cause it’s your birthday lol). Happy 21st!
As I sit here waiting for my flight home to Bozeman, I have nothing but time...time to think + time to people watch. A sea of faces. That is what I am surrounded by..there is a slim chance that I will see any of this people ever again + to be honest, I don’t really care. That seems harsh, but let’s be real, how often do we look up + acknowledge one another. It’s hard to step out of our comfort zones + just say “hi.” All these people, in a rush to get where they’re going...countless, lost + broken. And do I care?! Genuinely, I am asking myself this question. I serve a God who’s heart burns for each + everyone of these people. I am convinced that He would say hello to everyone of them..but since He isn’t here in person, who will extend to them His heart of love? Will it be you? Will it be me?! Hmm..a sea of faces..am I just another one or am I gonna cause a change in the current?Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC)
