Today's Climb

March 15, 2023

Today's Climb

Today, each of us woke up facing our own “rock”. These obstacles, challenges, circumstances, and situations were the world we stepped into today. And so, we each began our climb.
 

For some people, today’s climb is all about finding the courage to take the next step and for others it looks like waiting patiently in the stillness.
 

It might be making a career move, finally launching a business, or trying to escape burnout.
 

Perhaps it’s the desire to become a parent, trying to survive the baby phase, parenting a teenager, or worrying about your grown children as they become parents themselves.
 

The rocks we phase can be complex- they come in all colors, shapes, and sizes. Sometimes it’s our busyness, fear of judgment, pride, shame, ego or embarrassment that prevents each of our “rocks” from being made known. While we may never know what rocks others are truly up against, we can, however, choose to acknowledge that we’re all up against one today. Our job is not to try and understand them, bear the weight of them, or to try to fix them…
 

Our job is simply to extend grace to the people around us as we all face our climbs today, hoping they’ll extend it, too.
 

Prayer: 

Lord, we all find ourselves facing obstacles and challenges today. We’re all trying to figure things out and find ourselves failing and falling often. Help us to see the rocks before us today as opportunities. May we confront them today with confidence as we experience your grace and goodness in them. Help us to extend grace to those around us, too, knowing that everyone is facing their own “climb” today. Thank you for reminding us that we’re surrounded by fellow rock climbers and are not alone. Help us to not try to carry everyone else’s rocks but rather to come alongside them with grace and love. And lastly, we thank you, Lord, that you are our rock and strong tower. No obstacle is too big for you to face or carry.
 

“The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock in whom I take refuge…” 

Psalm 18:2

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 ...
