Caught up in the world’s current

Caught up in the world’s current

Have you ever noticed how we don’t naturally drift towards things like joy, peace, unity, or community?
 

Our world has developed this incredible ability to lure us in the opposite direction - towards isolation, depression, and comparison. It creates headlines that instill fear and doubt, or social media feeds that rob us of our joy as we’re led into the comparison trap. Let’s not forget the land of abundance that we live in that holds countless opportunities to invest in the meaningless at the expense of the meaningful - our spouses, our friends, our kids, our neighbors.
 

So often we get caught up in the world’s current without even realizing it. We find ourselves feeling like we’re lost at sea, far from being able to hear him as we’ve drifted away from the abundant life. But, here’s the beautiful part. We have a loving Father who throws us a life raft. He reaches out his hand, restores our weary souls, and surrounds us with people who help carry us back to shore.
 

Prayer: 

When we feel lost at sea today, drifting in the wrong direction, lead us back to you. Help us to fix our eyes on the lighthouse instead of the raging seas around us. When we feel our feet sinking and heart doubting like Peter did, help us to not be afraid but rather reach for your hand. Anchor our hope and trust in You and give us the perseverance to go against the current and swim towards you. Surround us with people who will walk alongside us, away from meaningless things and towards the meaningful.
 

“Come,” he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!”. Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him…” 

Matthew 14:29-31

Dear Sister, we’ve got you covered! My HOPE for the women who will attend the Wheat + Honey retreat in 2024? Jesus, we believe that whoever is meant to be at this retreat WILL BE THERE.

Women from different places, walking in different stages ~ unlikely community? WATCH IT WORK. You’ll bond over vulnerable small group discussions (some may even name their small group squad ~ you know who you are LOL), lounging at the beach club and laughing about who gets the worst sunburn, sitting cozy out on the porches commiserating about the dating app scene (a big yikes), or watching an extraordinary Watercolor beach sunset sharing so much gratitude. Seeing the women that attend experie...

Is it you…Dreaming of a Fulfilling Break from Reality?

Are you dreaming of a fulfilling break from reality? Imagine this…First steps on the beach revealed bright white sugary sand against the shimmering emerald waters of the Gulf. Breathing deeply, eyes closing, soaking in the delicious salty air aromas. Digging my toes into the warm sand, grounding myself in a delightful way. Letting the sun kiss my skin in a long awaited reunion for this pasty gal, lol. Hearing the crashing of waves, the buzz of laughter, and the soft tones of chatter. Feeling ...
