"We act as though comfort and luxury were the chief requirements of life, when all that we need to make us happy is something to be enthusiastic about."
Today’s Lesson on Ecclesiastes 11 is challenging the heck out of me. Here’s a few thoughts based on this study: •
Nothing ventured, nothing gained. No risk, no reward. • THERE’S NO BETTER TIME THAN THE PRESENT TO STEP OUT IN FAITH (ouuuch, for me) • Be diligent constantly. Don’t put what God has placed in your heart off for another day. Yeah, I’m #DyingToSelf today. 😶
"You’ll need coffee shops and sunsets and road trips. Airplanes and passports and new songs and old songs, but people more than anything else. You will need other people and you will need to be that other person to someone else, a living breathing screaming invitation to believe better things."
Those friends that just understand… I always leave conversations with Thomas completely encouraged and inspired to go forward, never desiring to settle for less, and more passionate about Jesus. I’m a grateful girl to have had him in my life for the last 10 years…
THE HAPPIEST MEAL // I’ve ever received. The little women here are the SWEETEST ladies I’ve met so far. Everyone should make a trip here! #LookAtMyPlate #irvsburgers #westhollywood (at Irv’s Burgers)
Q U I T T H U R S D A Y // I’ve been inspired by Bob Goff to quit something every Thursday. I don’t want to settle for the ordinary life. So today, my #QuitThursday is to give up negative thinking and declare this scripture over myself. I know who I am alone (pretty fragile and fearful) but I have found who I am in Christ, and in Him, I am not those things because he makes me confident and strong. So goodbye, negative thinking. Hello Jesus, I hear your truth! Now, let’s kick the devil’s ___. 😊
"He appreciated those who had a taste for indolence, liked daydreaming, welcomed the emotions sparked by listening to Mozart’s operas and could be thrown into hours of bittersweet thoughts after just one glimpse of a beautiful face in a crowded street."
That one time you FaceTime with Matt Tanttari and he tries setting you up with a guy over FaceTime… Then covered the camera to tell him all these things about me. Awkward. Lol. Well, I’m not the most confident when it comes to actually telling a guy I like him/attracted anyways, so I guess one day Matt’s methods might work, haha?? However, dating long distance isn’t ideal, is it? Lol.
