It is OKAY to care A LOT

It is OKAY to care A LOT

It is OKAY to care A LOT 

As a healthcare professional, I admit, I become very attached to my patients. No matter their past, present, race, or belief system, they are deeply loved by me. I become their advocate, and they become my family. 

I am probably not the most popular person on my job because I will always make sure the voices of my patients are heard. I often become frustrated with myself for caring so deeply. I went through a phase of “wishing I didn’t care so much”. 

Recently, I’ve been reflecting on what God says about caring for others: 
“Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.” Galatians 6:2 ESV

We are supposed to walk out life’s ups and downs TOGETHER, as a community. We are the body of Christ collectively, not individually. By bearing one another’s burdens, we provide a true reflection of our Savior, who carried each of our burdens to The Cross. 

“Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. Have this mind among yourselves, which is in Christ Jesus, who though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of me.” 
Philippians 2: 4-7 ESV


This verse. WE WERE CALLED TO CARE A LOT! Jesus cared so deeply for us that he “humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.” (Philippians 2:8 ESV). 

I say to myself and each of you, keep fighting for others! 

It is absolutely OKAY to care, love, and value others for it is a reflection of Christ’s humility and love.

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. Each year, you are faithful. Each year, you bring the women that need deep refresh, soul rest, and a meaningful reset. With the theme of “KNOWN”, we agree that you want these women to feel seen. All they have to do is show up to the weekend, and you will do the rest of the work! What freedom and comfort that b...

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...

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 ...
