Satisfaction not found in temporary contentments

Satisfaction not found in temporary contentments

Proverbs 22:11 “He who loves purity of heart, and whose speech is gracious, will have the king as his friend.” 

Does anyone in your life come to mind when you read this scripture? For me, it’s my precious Mimi (grandmother). Her speech is pure,  life-giving, compassionate, gracious, generous, uplifting, and all things synonymous. Time with her leaves my heart full and longing to know Jesus more. I’ve honestly never heard her speak an ill word of anyone, which is truly a rarity.I firmly believe that the King considers her a friend. In every conversation she mentions Him. It’s oh-so-evident that He’s her confidant, her closest and most trusted companion. Could there be anything sweeter? 

While I’m so often caught up in wondering what others think of me, what if I stopped to instead ponder what God thinks of me? Is my speech reflecting His character? Is my love motivated by selfish gain or purity of heart? These questions are so challenging. 

The book of Proverbs is filled to the brim with wisdom and truth ~ ours for the taking. Earthly temptations are so fleeting, yet God has to constantly draw our attention back to Him. The only One who is everlasting. We want to be satisfied, but we give into temporary contentments. We long for purpose and we forget that our identity is the children of God. His heirs with a heavenly Kingdom to inherit. Friends, let’s camp out here. Immerse yourself in the truth. Renew your heart, mind, spirit. Seek friendship in the best friend that we could ever ask for. If we let the Holy Spirit guide our daily interactions, imagine where that could lead!

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 ...
