I think you’re more than your appearance. Actually I know, I know that you’re worth more than the clothes you wear. There’s so much more to you. Our stories, our battles & victories all play a part in how we represent and perceive ourselves. They’re often what determines what we believe about what we are capable of, our measure of worth & belonging. If we chose to find our identity in the victories of our story & less in the struggle then I believe we would be completely different people! The tough grade school year’s leave their mark of insecurity, the messy family memories leave roots of inadequacy, the painful relationships dig into our worth and cause us to carry yet another weight. Financial instability says we will never be able to attain our goals let alone dress like we wish we really could. But what about the times you faced your fear, you believed you could & you did, when you found freedom from your struggle & fought for it! THIS is why I do what I do, because the painful parts of your story don’t have to determine the way you dress or carry yourself. Clothing is a trigger! If we wear clothes that we don’t love it make us feel insecure & uncomfortable, it’s a constant reminder of all the emotional weight we carry. There is a way to dress to unlock confidence & give the world a taste of your personality, what makes you SO wonderfully you! I believe whole hearted that how we dress is one element of discovering who we are & walking it out! .

This cold weather (and my sore throat) have me day dreaming about San Diego & that warm sunshine I was lounging in only days ago! •
Church was SO life giving this morning! I had moments of serious appreciation for the way God strategically & creatively did things in the Bible and the fact that He hasn’t changed how He works today. He’s a strategic and intentional God that lays the steps before us, all He asks us to do it trust Him & keep following Him. •
When he asked Abraham to sacrifice Issac he knew that God was too faithful to make him follow it through, so he did it with complete peace and assurance that God had other plans in mind! Abraham didn’t doubt Gods goodness or leading. Of course That was true. He used that moment as a monumental one in the story of Jesus to show us the blessing and security in knowing & trusting that even when things look horrible and scary, He provides a way of escape when we trust His leading! That to reach the unseen doors we have to first find the ones that lead to it – He sees them all, he knows which steps and decisions need to be made to reach them and he provides what we need to walk through them. My spirit is full and refreshed!
