Throwback Thursday {10.12.20}

Morning! Today’s Throwback Thursday is from last October. If you are feeling exhausted and overwhelmed, I hope this encourages you today.


This weekend I finished The Fight to Flourish by Jennie Lusko. I know I sound like a broken record, but I loved this book so much! As I finished it this weekend, this journal entry Jennie shared really spoke to me. And I think it will speak to you, too.

“And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”

Revelation 21:4

Jesus defeated the power of death. But on THIS day, death will die.


  • Have confidence in Christ.
  • Walk close to Jesus.
  • Don’t let anything be wasted.
  • Be a good wife.
  • Be a fun mom.
  • Take your role seriously, but not yourself.

Lord, have your way in me today. Open my eyes to see how you see.

This is my prayer for today and I encourage you to make it your prayer, too. Lord, help us be confident in you, walk close to you and make the most of every moment we have. Help us be the wives and moms you call us to be and to have fun while doing it! 

If you are feeling exhausted and overwhelmed today, stop and breathe. Girl, you are doing an amazing job! We are so hard on ourselves and we are our own worst critic. Today, see yourself as Jesus sees you. You are special, loved, His masterpiece, His daughter. You may not be strong, but He is. You may not feel like you are enough because you are not. No one is. But we serve a God who is more than enough!

Rest in Him, embrace your journey, love those around you and stay close to Jesus.


Even if. Will you choose to trust Him?

“We don’t have to know all the details. We don’t have to know the whys and the how’s. But we can trust Jesus will accomplish His purpose. Even if our circumstances aren’t good, His purpose always is. God may answer our prayer just the way we hoped. Or He may not. But at the end of the day will you trust His view of things? Will you trust that He knows the best way even if you don’t? That’s the question for all of us. Every day. Will you trust Him? Even if.”

The Bible study, “Finding I am” by Lysa Terkeurst is just what my heart has needed since dad passed away. I’m slowly getting there. Slowly choosing to trust Him again. Yesterday I stood in worship and was able to sing above a whisper without completely losing it. I’ve been able to read His Word again without it stinging my heart so bad causing me to close my bible and walk away. I’ve chosen to fight through the grief I thought I had handled well but I hadn’t. I was refusing to deal with it because it hurt so much. God knows just what we need and He has put people in my life to help me through this. So thankful for my friend Jessie who has opened her home and started this study. Thankful for the ladies that I have gotten to know and who are walking this journey with me. I’m slowly getting there and feeling more like myself. Grief is hard y’all. It hurts you deep, to the core. But we must deal with it. We can’t tuck it away and walk away. The last year and a half I’ve done just that but step by step I’m choosing to trust God again. His ways are good. Even if my entire being wants to convince me otherwise I am choosing to believe that even if, His ways are good. So I will trust even when I don’t understand. I will trust even when it hurts. I will trust even when He says no. I will trust because His ways are always good.
