Quote Up! | Fall Edition

It’s time for another Quote Up! I love Thanksgiving so much. It is a time of year when everyone (hopefully) sets aside a little more time than normal to think about be grateful. It is also marks the beginning of the holiday season, which to me is one of the most beautiful times of the entire year.

So I’m hailing this new season with a few amazing quotes to inspire you every day! Take a moment to think about each of them. Skimming over something potentially mind changing is only a waste of time! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Hello, Thankful!

“Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.” – Oprah Winfrey

“Give thanks for each new morning with its light, for rest and shelter of the night, for health and food, for love and friends, for everything Thy goodness sends.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Thanksgiving Quotes

“In happy moments, praise God. In difficult moments, seek God. In quiet moments, trust God. In every moment, thank God.” Continue reading “Quote Up! | Fall Edition”

Devotional Journaling | #Inktober Throwback

It’s been November for exactly one week. I’m currently loving the fall colors, even with all the recent downpours trying to wash them away! October was a great month with a much needed slightly slower pace. I didn’t blog as much as anticipated, but I feel much of the content wasn’t ready yet and I had to learn to be okay with that. As a fact, I’m still working hard to get a few things (including some pretty cool freebies) ready for y’all.ย  And today is #ThrowbackThursday! How appropriate.

Maybe this month can be your chill month! Don’t over-think things, and spend more time with Jesus. I promise that’s going to make a huge difference.

Devotional journaling is a great way to express what you’re feeling, write down thoughts, prayers, favorite or impact-ful scripture, ideas, and all kinds of other things. I like to use my journal as a space where I can put down anything.

In my previous devotional journals, Iย  wrote a lot of scripture and little thoughts I had about them. But I rarely pick them back up and read them. Why? Because they’re so bland and boring. Not that the content is particularly bland and boring, but each page looks exactly the same. Nothing stands out. I used the same blank ink, the same handwriting, and wrote everything in the same style paragraphs. Continue reading “Devotional Journaling | #Inktober Throwback”

A Month of Worship Music | Day 30

This is the last installment in the “A Month of Worship Music” series. I’m relieved that probably the craziest month in my life (literally!) is just about over. At the same time I feel a little a mixed about it. I’ve learned and appreciated so many new songs this month. At the end of August, I made a list of songs for each day this month. Funny thing is, half of those got changed when I wrote the actual posts because I had found new ones that I loved even better and hit home stronger.

I am not afraid of anyone,

because I am BEST FRIENDS with GOD.

And He’s a whole lot bigger than the

entire world COMBINED.

I hope you all enjoyed following along. Thank you. If this is your first time here, welcome! It’s never too late to go back and replay the music.

Stay tuned for the October stuff I have planned… ๐Ÿ™‚

A Month of Worship Music | Day 29

September is almost over, which means this series is just almost finished. But let’s not let the music stop! I’m challenging you to share your top three favorite worship songs with someone you know. Spread the love!

“It’s my choice to live loved.

I have chosen it and now I must

go beyond just that, and

actually live it.”

Song #29: “God Gave Me You” – Blake Shelton

I said I like country. ๐Ÿ˜‰ This isn’t your typical worship song, yet it reminds us how important the closest people to us really are. It’s not just about your significant other. It’s about your best friend, your parents, your family. It’s about Jesus himself.

 

 

 

A Month of Worship Music | Day 27

I can hardly believe that we’re almost to the end of September. There are only three days left! It’s been an amazing month. Very challenging in so many ways, yet God has worked incredibly. I’m feeling pretty inspired about October – whatever that means. ๐Ÿ˜‰

If you’re working, relaxing, stressing out, and/or jumping for joy, remember…

You are loved,

You are whole,

You are complete,

You are enough for

God’s plan.

A Month of Worship Music | Day 15, 16, 17, & 18

After starting my new job in dining at a retirement community two weeks ago, I’ve begun to realize just how much a cheery smile brightens someone’s day. “Let your smile change the world”, is something I’ve believed for a long time. But I’ve gotten to test it out. Seeing those people every day can get boring if I’d want it to. Living there, probably gets boring too. Giving an extra dose of kindness and cheer makes a noticeable difference in their moods. Old people aren’t the only ones like that! Do you see certain people every day or at least fairly often? Maybe a grouchy or irritating customer? A hard to work with coworker? You might be the only smile they see.

A Month of Worship Music | Day 6,7,8

I had day six written and ready to post… and my internet connection failed. And then I headed off to my new job to start a few mildly stressful yet fun days of training. Now I’m relaxing at the beach and have the time and resources to connect again and (hopefully) make up for the lost time. Or maybe I should say I’m holed up in an under-lit, outdated hotel room while the wind howls and blows a cold drizzle outside ( #reality ). I hope your mornings haven’t been too mundane without me. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I wrote that yesterday. ๐Ÿ˜€ So this morning, I decided to get up and be productive. With my amazing sister helping me, I came up with a strategy to overcome the overwhelming feelings of life. She’s pretty great!

I figured out my power word, sentence, verse, and song. Basically, I now have a few things to read and think about that I know will always inspire me beyond just the next few seconds.ย  I’ll probably make all that into a completely different post, but I thought I’d make a note for now… ๐Ÿ™‚

So let’s pick up where we left off. I’m planning to post several songs a day so that y’all won’t have to miss any of the amazing ones I’ve picked out.

Your encouraging thought for the day:

“No matter what you’ve gone through, no matter what you’re going to go through, Jesus is always strong enough.”

A Month of Worship Music | Day 5

Here’s an encouraging thought for your Wednesday:

“I am completely unafraid of the unknown, because nothing is unknown to my Father!”
