Pushing Back Darkness

Pushing Back Darkness

Jesus: The Light of the World



… the sun will no longer be your light by day, and the brightness of the moon will not shine on you. The Lord will be your everlasting light, and your God will be your splendor (Isaiah 60:19-20). 

2020 was filled with unquestionable dark moments and maybe for you, at times, those dark moments surrounded the depths of your soul that it became almost impossible to see Jesus as the light of your life. 

In Genesis 1:3 God says “Let there be light, and there was light…” but God doesn’t stop there. Scripture goes on to say “...and God separated the light from the darkness.” 

We just celebrated the birth of our Savior and are entering into a new year, hopeful for what 2021 has to offer. Despite what 2020 brought to each of us, we can enter 2021 with the confidence that Jesus IS the light of our world. 

The light, in all its glory, illuminates and pushes against the darkness. The light provides hope. It provides an opportunity. An opportunity for you and I to choose to push against the darkness, expose the deepest parts of ourselves that maybe we want hidden, and step into the light...believing and trusting that Jesus is who He says He is: The Light of the World. 

Take hope in 2021! Jesus is the lamp beneath our feet. Walk into each day this year with the confidence that the brightness of Jesus shines through you and you have access to the Light right now and in the days to come! 

Revelation 22:5… ‘Night will be no more; people will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, because the Lord God will give them light, and they will reign forever and ever.”

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 ...
