Relationship over Religion

Relationship over Religion

I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness comes through the law, then Christ died for nothing. Galatians 2:21 

I’d love to start off this devotional by asking you a question: What can you do in order for God to love you today?

I wish we were sitting together at a coffee shop so I can see your face and hear your answer. And regardless of what you whispered or wrote down, I am here to tell you that there is nothing you can do today to make God love you more or less than He does. This is good news!! 

Friends, it is never and will never be about what we can do for Jesus; the focus is on what He did for us on the cross. He doesn’t want our actions, He wants our hearts. More good news is that Jesus knows us fully and deeply and loves us more than we can comprehend. 

He is so acquainted with the details of our lives and longs to be in a relationship with us. He sits outside the door to our hearts, patiently waiting for us to let Him in. He doesn’t need us to clean up or tidy all of the rooms, He just wants us to come as we are and sit with Him. We can walk in the grace that He gives freely, knowing that He will never forsake us.

A weekend that will not soon be forgotten!! This group of ladies who began as strangers and quickly became friends were kind, hilarious and brave. We spent four days and three nights retreating together in Seaside, FL enjoying a gorgeous home, personal chef, sunset beach photos with our photographer, beach walks, bike rides and porch hangs. I'm grateful for the quiet, the conversations and the reminder of the peace we get to live with in Him. I cannot wait to reunited with this group of ladie...

The Importance of your Testimony

Your story matters. Each time we are brave enough to allow people in and share what we've been through or currently going through, we’re trusting God with our testimony and giving Him permission to use our story to showcase His power or move in someone else’s life. Keep showing up in faith, being willing to tell others about what God has done for you and what He’s teaching you. Keep opening your heart with courage and vulnerability.  Because it’s not about US – it’s about HIM. We are just ...

There’s never a perfect Goldilocks season where you feel “just right.” You’re too young, and then one day you realize that you’re too old. There’s never an in-between.That is, unless you choose to believe that God can use you at ANY age for the plans He has for you.Use this as your reminder today that God doesn’t see you as the world sees you. He is not fazed by age-restrictions or traditional time frames. The Lord is never late and never early, and He wants us to trust His timing.When you re...
