|| 🧡🍁FALL 🍁🧡||
Oh man, this season has been off to a great start!
It’s as if spring shacked me up in a blender and left with cuts and bruises. But, Fall came so gracefully. Caught me and is preparing me for something more!
I’m ready and going to stay ready for what God has in store for me.
Happy Thanksgiving all! Hope you had a wonderful weekend! God bless!

...but are you listening to the Holy Spirit and obeying?⠀
💭Are you listening to the guilt and shoulds?⠀
💗Or are you listening to the call to rest your soul in Him?⠀
Listen to what He is saying and listen to what your own body is telling you!⠀
Hearing and OBEYING is a BIG PART OF YOUR HEALING and emotional health!💕⠀
I am praying for you!🙏🏻🙏🏼🙏🏽

✝️JESUS IS RETURNING SOON (Hebrews 10:35-39)
📖 READ THE HOLY BIBLE EVERYDAY (2 Timothy 2:15)
🙏🏽PRAY TO BE FOUND WORTHY TO ESCAPE THESE COMING HORRORS (LUKE 21:34-36)
🎟ARE YOU READY TO BE RAPTURED? (James 1:22)
👑GOD BLESS YOU (Numbers 6:24-26)
This passage and others like it, speak of a special relationship between God and his people that should give us solace and encouragement. The people of God are not an after thought. Jesus distinguished the believers from those, "whose name has not been written before the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb who was slain" (Rev. 13:8)
Our relationship with God is not transitory. We are not just whispers of flesh that pass quickly in the corridors of time on earth. We are people with names. We matter to God. He knows our names and he calls us by name.
This is amazing to think about. God knows our names. God has a direct interest in us just as we are. Though we are not even a speck on the universe, nor in the vastness of time, God has written down the names of his children with care and nurture.
The Lord will Provide
The Lord will Heal
The Lord our Peace
The Lord our Banner
The Lord our Righteousness
The Lord our Shepherd
The Lord is always Present

Stay focused on what God told you sis! Don’t look to the left or to the right or let the left hand know what the right hand is doing (Matthew 6:3). Sometimes people’s opinions of what God told you to do will not bear witness with what He is speaking to you. Let His Word be the path you continue to follow because people will come and go and if you listen to them you will never move forward in the things of God. You must learn to move in silence and let His success be your noise! The steps of a good woman are ordered by the Lord and the Lord delights in her way!👑
What has the Lord been teaching you lately sis?

If you are ever in #milfordpa & feeling frisky for a good latte make sure to swing by the @friskygoatcoffeehouse ☕🐐
Supporting #localbussiness is SO important, it brings a cheesy smile to my face to go into a shop that is thriving. Starting from a vision & I'm sure a TON of hard work its almost unbelievable that people are able to make their dreams of opening something special in the community a reality. The Lord has given me a dream to reach the children of El Salvador for a two-year assignment. It would be the ultimate blessing if any small businesses in the #tristate area would consider supporting a local missionary (me 😊). The process of serving in El Salvador 🇸🇻 is a great burden & I can't do it alone. By contributing a one time gift or monthly support together as a team we can make helping kiddos feel loved ❤️& giving them hope a reality✨. _______
Did you know trees kill their own leaves? 🍁🌳🍂 I once thought it was the weather that caused the trees to lose their leaves, but the colder temps are simply a signal to the trees that it is time to cut off their leaves.
So then why do trees do this? For one, it helps conserve water. More intriguing is that its a protection mechanism to preserve itself through the harsh elements of winter.
When a tree kills off its own leaves, it reduces the risk that those leaves get torn off by wind or rain during a storm (this can actually wound the tree). Also, less leaves means the branch isn't as heavy, which helps it to not break in the snow. Smart, isn't it?
joy is found in surrender. i’m learning this lesson every.single.day. i naturally want control. i’m always thinking about every possible outcome, choosing in my mind which one i deem best and sticking to it, giving little wiggle room for God to alter my plans. (which, of course, my thoughts never hinder His perfect will from playing out)
but trying to control my world (and other people’s worlds for that matter 😅) really does get stressful to be honest with you. (can anyone relate? 🙋🏽♀️) if something disrupts my schedule what am i going to do? if plans a, b, c, and d don’t work, then what?
if i stopped to think about it, maybe i would realize that i was never called to be in control. i was never given the character trait of sovereignty nor was i told that my ways are perfect. my life was never placed into my hands to try and figure out where to go. if a plan fails according to my schedule, it doesn’t mean it failed in God’s eyes. in fact, it was meant to go the way it went.
this is where joy comes in. but it’s so much more than a 3 letter word. it’s a lifestyle of faith that starts with letting go and then moving forward in trust. those scars and bruises we all have will always be there, don’t get me wrong. in fact, we are going to keep acquiring them because we live in world full of broken pieces that cut and scrape. BUT, another scar means a springboard to fuller trust. another bruise is just another level to perfect joy in Christ. surrender, letting go of the things we want to control, brings peace. and in perfect peace there is joy. Christ’s plans are only always good. nothing He does will ever “fail,” but will always bring glory to Himself. that’s why we can confidently surrender ourselves to Him. and that’s where true joy can be found.

Some journals are just so beautiful that they don't need much altering at all. I couldn't help myself but to add a little bling to this one. Overall I think it's a wonderful Journal for doodling everyday thoughts or as a companion with your Bible.

There is power in the Holy Spirit. God will prune His children to make them even more fruitful for His Kingdom. He will sometimes make us go through fire to test our faith but we can overcome and we will be stronger laborers for His name's sake.
Had the pleasure of working on the crew of this film. You can stream it now at ChristianCinema.com. We'd love for you to review it too!! Great faith-based family film. Suspenseful drama that's not scary and points to Christ.
This is a custom bible I created, that is now looking for a new home.😉 The idea behind this one was that the Word is to be what we are rooted in. And to grown /become the same kind of fruit as Christ.
This bible is NKJV with added study info in the back.

Vision will be the key to your sweet victory. Your QUICK victory! I’m declaring it right now that victory is coming SWIFTLY to your situation! I declare right now that your vision snap into alignment with the Father’s plan. In Jesus name!!! .
“”Ask,” promised Jesus, “and it will be given to you” (Matthew 7:7). “You do not have because you do not ask,” said James (James 4:2). Even though there is no limit to God’s goodness, if you didn’t ask Him for a blessing yesterday, you didn’t get all that you were supposed to have.
That’s the catch—if you don’t ask for His blessing, you forfeit those that come to you only when you ask. In the same way that a father is honored to have a child beg for his blessing, your Father is delighted to respond generously when His blessing is what you covet most.””
-From “The Prayer Of Jabez-Breakthrough to the blessed life” By #BruceWilkinson .
“Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.”
Matthew 7:7-8 NLT
Some of what you call suffering is just the process. Hold on till you see that growth manifest. Remember, there is an expected end.

|| Do you feel channeled into your purpose? God has called us for His plan and a very specific purpose. This is something that has been on my heart lately. ♥️ Why am I here? What am I meant to do with the precious time I’ve been given here? I finally had quite the breakthrough (shout out to @thegoodgoodpodcast ... H I G H L Y recommend; there’s a reason it’s called ‘good’ twice!!) and realized just how I can step more into God’s plan.
By making each day count and stepping out 🏃🏼♀️ on faith to do even just one little thing a day to build towards my calling. Listening to those whispers that God puts on my heart and leaning into them. Just taking the first step and building 🔨 to those dreams one block at a time has made all the difference in my happiness and direction of motion. AND JOY, GUYS!! I’m so joyful!
Trust. It’s easy to say we trust, but sometimes more difficult to live it out when we don’t see the manifestation of our hopes. We’ve admittedly been in a place like this recently - where our trust has been tested in a season of the unknown. We’ve just found ourselves at a total loss in our own strength, which has made us press in deeper or just sit at His feet with hands open in surrender. There’s something profound + beautiful about a reality of humanity with a posture of surrender. It’s the breeding ground for God to wreck in with the miraculous. 〰️
Have a laugh on me this Monday afternoon... Joie- circa ‘93😂😂😂 Do you have advice you would give your younger self?
I would have told 1993 Joie to get a flat iron ASAP!

💙INVISIBLE AWARENESS WEEK OCT 13-19. RAISING AWARENESS FOR INVISIBLE ILLNESSES SUCH AS: ME/CFS, LUPUS, LYME'S, EDS, POTS AND UNFORTUNATELY MANY MORE.
💙ALWAYS BE KIND TO OTHERS, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT THEY ARE BATTLING.
💙MY CHRONIC INVISIBLE ILLNESS IS CALLED MYALGIC ENCEPHALOMYELITIS
💙Myalgic Encephalomyelitis or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS) is a life-altering and complex multi-system disease that can present as an array of different symptoms that may change over time and differ from patient to patient. The most common symptoms of ME/CFS are post-exertional malaise, unrefreshing sleep, profound fatigue, cognitive impairment, orthostatic intolerance, and pain.
The cause of ME/CFS is currently unknown, but a combination of genetic and environmental factors appear to be relevant. There are also no diagnostic tests or FDA approved treatments available.
Not only do symptoms vary in type but also in severity, ranging from mild to severe. An estimated 1 in 4 patients are housebound or bedbound and many of the most severely affected need to be fed by tube.
Currently, there is no laboratory diagnostic test. Due to a symptom set that overlaps with several other diseases, clinical assessment and symptoms and the exclusion of other diseases are necessary for accurate diagnosis.
The current lack of knowledge about the disease is purely a reflection of the lack of research funding.
Today, the landscape of ME/CFS research is growing with the outlook brighter than ever.
I may not be for everyone, But God loves me anyways❤️✝️🙌🏼
1 of my biggest hesitations with sharing my faith online has been fear of critics.
When I was on a spiritual path, I freely shared my beliefs with others without any fear of harsh, attacking judgement & criticism. I was excited to empower others in their life just the way I was. My faith based journey has been so different.
I’ve received some insanely harsh criticismS from fellow believers, attacking me as a person, my faith, my beliefs. I’ve been called terrible names & received really aggressively hateful messages demanding I change my beliefs.
If I allow myself to focus on these people then I’ll never post anything. I won’t share my heart for Jesus in the unique way I do, letting down all the people who my message DO serve. If I focus on the negative comments, I’d never be able to do the work God calls me to do to glorify HIM. Their negativity would tear me down into despair which is NOT align with God’s Will for me. He gave me the passion & ability to pour into others on purpose!
I refuse to give in. I refuse to fight back, defend or be offended. At the end of the day we all love God, we just express it in different ways. I honour that. I honour that others have their own faith journeys & belief systems. I’m NOT judging them or their expressions because we’re different. I believe that God has a plan for ALL OF US & I trust Him enough to refuse to tear down others. I refuse to give into Society’s demands to fight or connect through negativity. I choose Love. I chose encouragement because I know that it’s desperately needed in this dark world today. Encouragement is my spiritual gift from God which be gave my to glorify HIM!
I’m at the point that I’m gonna say what I want to say in LOVE. If you don’t like it don’t follow me.
I share this to prompt you to ask yourself where in your life have you allowed comments & opinions hold you back from fulfilling your Kingdom Purpose? Have you allowed your self confidence to be diminished by others opinions instead of what God says about you? How can you bring your focus back to God, Who you are as a child of God & Who he has created you to be?
OBEDIENCE: Not even a partial obedience will help but a total one to the Word of God. Let it be your standard and you will be surprised how the Lord will cause His light to shine beautifully on your path, your step will be ordered by Him for you are just man.
let’s just be real.
so often we hear from God on what to do, but we run like hell, as if we can get away from it! 😅 we convince ourselves that we aren’t good enough, that we’re not qualified, that there is someone better for the job and sometimes i just imagine God being like, n-n-nah this is what i have FOR YOU. Whether we want it or not! ❣️ guys, when i got called to youth ministry, i said no so many times i was ready to stop Going to church! God yanked me back and was like SIT. So i whines and SAT.. and it’s been one of the best YES’s of my life. If God is calling you or leading you somewhere, now is a great time to put your faith into action. Trust him. He’s got you. He won’t steer you wrong, he’s God! It doesn’t get any better than that! 💛 — #christianinspiration#christianblogger#christianinstagram#faith#faithpost#encouragement
