It was never meant to be this way

It was never meant to be this way

Revelation 21:4 “He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” 

THESE WORDS. These past few years I find myself truly longing for Heaven in a way that I have never experienced before. Suffering seems to be a familiar friend in my life, and I believe in many of your lives too. Although I can very clearly still see that God is good, there are serious moments of heaviness that feel like they could very easily take over if I let them.  

A sweet friend gave me this encouragement recently ~ She said “don’t you believe that God hates the brokenness just as much and even MORE than you do? It was never meant to be this way.” 

BOOM. I felt like she had just knocked the breath right out of my body. As I recovered, I was overwhelmed with a renewed deep comfort and fellowship with God. I’m not in this alone! 

He hates cancer. He hates loss. He hates physical pain, emotional pain, hurt, sadness, disappointment, depression, anxiety, heartbreak, etc. The list could seriously go on forever.  

The Good News?

He promises us that one day we will be reunited with Him and everything will be NEW. As His beloved children, we know without a doubt that there are better days to come. Our futures are secure with Him. He will dwell with us, and we will be with our Savior forevermore! I can’t help but be overwhelmed with joyful anticipation. I am hoping, I am believing, I am longing for this day with everything in me!

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...

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 ...
