What can I bring?

What can I bring?

“Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.” Revelation 3:20 

Have you ever been invited somewhere and asked, “What can I bring?” only to hear, “Nothing” or “Just bring yourself” as the response? What a relief to not have to make, bake, pack or pick up anything and just know you can simply show up and be welcomed in…just are you, even with empty hands. 

Jesus does this for us, too. Every minute of every day. And His invitation is infinitely better. 

Because we’re always invited, we never have to bring anything, and we can always come exactly as we are - broken and empty-handed. The table is always set, a banquet is always prepared, and a seat is always waiting for his “honored guest” ...us. (Psalm 23:5) He has the bread of life and refreshing waters to feed our hungry souls and in His presence we find the fullness of joy. (Psalm 16:11). But wait, there’s more. To top it all off, he never gets tired of us, embraces us with open arms every time, and calls us “beloved” and “friend”. 

Prayer: 

Lord, thank you that the table is always set for us. We thank you that regardless of what our day has looked like, you welcome us in as your honored guest, even when we show up empty-handed and broken. Thank you that we don’t have to remember to RSVP or prepare an elaborate speech. You ask for nothing. Remind us today that you’re always standing at the door knocking ready for us to simply open it. When the world gets noisy today, tune our hearts to your voice and remind us of the fullness of joy that we have in Your presence. Help us remember that the greatest invitation we’ll ever receive is the one You give us every minute of every day - to simply be with You.

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?

January 16, 2024

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 ...
