Words aren’t just words. Thoughts aren’t just thoughts. Feelings aren’t just feelings. God gave all of these things to us for a reason.
I have been greatly enjoying not having social media apps on my phone. It’s been helping me be more intentional with my time, phone calls, etc. I easily feel not enough of a woman and mother when I am on this app too much, to the point where seeing my friends far away do well made me not only miss them but wish I was where they are. God has us all where we are at for a reason, even when we are standing still. I am and have been standing still (in what feels like mud) since 2015. I am, however, tired of being unhappy and not finding the joy when God gives me the chance to. So till I can get in a place where my heart and mind are okay with what my present has to offer, I’m going to be on social media less and try to make more steps to do things for myself that heal my soul and pursue dreams and callings and passions one day at a time. I love this social media platform, and it’s always brought me more joy than pain, till now. We should all work our hardest to choose joy. No matter what. Easier said than done. But let’s at least help each other try.
Not.enough.coffee. Strugs.To.func. Brain is a million miles an hour. Emotions at an all time low. This social media platform can be encouraging but rn is so debilitating at the same time. I’m tired of having to be on social media in order to feel connected to people who live close to me. It’s a lie and I need a break. Text me and let’s hang. Call me and let’s chat. If I take a break from this I think it will make it easier for me to answer my phone. I want to know you and see your face, not your photos. Bye for a bit 👋🏻
“Run away from infantile indulgence. Run after mature righteousness - faith, love, and peace - joining those who are in honest and sincere prayer before God. Refuse to get involved in inane discussions that always end up in fights. Gods servant must not be argumentative, but a gentle listener and a teacher who keeps cool, working firmly yet patiently with those who refuse to obey. You never know how or when God might sober them up with a change of heart and a turning to the truth, enabling them to escape the Devils trap, where they are caught and held captive, forced to run his errands.” 2 Timothy 2:22-26, The Message
This photo may be staged, but my feelings about this study are far from artificial. Sometimes we all need a push to pray on a deeper level, and this study is giving me exactly that. I love the Psalms so much, and am so grateful for the depth this study is bringing to one of my favorite books of the Bible. I even get to do it with my best friends!
Everyone needs community and I get to live it with the best. I can’t function without them (a few ladies not pictured obvi) and I am blessed beyond measure 😭🧜🏻♀️🙏🏻
I live on the Palouse for the people, the restaurants, and the peonies. And yeah I don’t care about my grid rn peony season is once a year so sue me for having 3 photos of them in a row loll.
