WEAR THE WORD // temporary tattoos, eternal promises


"i know you see me. i know you hear me, Lord. Your plans are for me! goodness you have in store, so, thy will be done..."

CURATED // faith, forgiveness, fake news, and facebookers


sometimes i read really great stuff and i just have to share it, and posting it on social media doesn't feel like enough. i actually hope you click these links and read these articles and see these things that i have to share! and i hope you enjoy it all as much as i do. here is my latest curated collection -(click the bold blue words to be taken to the full article/site/source) 
  





// LIVING FAITHFULLY INSTEAD OF FANCIFULLY. "We don't have to be materialists, or its just as sneaky sister, minimalists. We don't have to have the perfect subway tile or shiplap or whatever design feature is today's thing. We don't need to redecorate with the seasons and fashions. But if we're Christians, we are intended for good work, we are intended for faithfulness, for quiet lives, and working with our hands, and we are intended to flourish as we tend and work and keep what God has planted us in." YES. FORGET KEEPING UP WITH THE JONESES OR STRIVING FOR PERFECTION. LET'S DROP OUR MATERIALISM AND SIMPLY FLOURISH WHERE WE ARE, WITH WHAT WE HAVE.



// HOW TO CHANGE THE DIRECTION OF OUR DAY. "Declaring His trustworthiness to my soul caused me to declare other truths. You’re trustworthy. You will be trustworthy. You’re being trustworthy. I can fully trust you with this and this and this. Because You’re trustworthy. All the time." YES. CHANGE YOUR THOUGHTS AND CHANGE YOUR DAY. 


// ALL THINGS NEW. "We all have areas of weakness, and we have all been through things that have caused us sorrow and pain… But...Jesus bore it all for you and me to have complete freedom, healing, and restoration when we make Him our Savior." YES. GOD IS LITERALLY THE BEST AT MAKING ALL THINGS NEW, BRINGING TO LIFE WHAT WAS DEAD, MAKING BEAUTY OUT OF ASHES, RESTORING, RENEWING, RESURRECTING. 




// POWERFUL FORGIVENESS. "Each one of us forgive the killer, the murderer, we want to wrap our arms around him..." WHEN YOU GRASP THE UNMERITED GRACE AND FORGIVENESS THAT HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO YOU BY GOD, IT MUST BE EASIER TO EXTEND THAT SAME GRACE AND FORGIVENESS. EVEN FOR THE UNTHINKABLE.



// THE SKIMM. this is my new favorite source for daily news headlines and stories without any drama or biases or slants or hype. that's right: i get to read the news and form my own thoughts! wow what a concept. thanks, Skimm.

// OH, FACEBOOKERS. i shared this video clip from a recent SNL episode on my FB page. it's funny because it's so true. it's about the (sad) culture of "slacktivism" and "social media social justice junkies" - starring Louis C.K.:  


i also thought this video from John Crist about Facebookers was funny, and sadly all too true:
