There Will Be Joy Again (Walking Through The Valley)

There Will Be Joy Again (Walking Through The Valley)

Hi there! I hope you’re having a beautiful Monday. ❤ This past Saturday, I planned out all the post ideas I’d love to share throughout this whole upcoming week. I’m excited to write them and post them – they’re going to be awesome!

To start off this epic bout of productivity (haha), I brought an uncompleted post idea I’ve wanted to write for a while out of my phone’s notes. I’m very happy to get to share the completed version with you today. ❤ Enjoy!

Praying For The Desires Of Our Hearts

Praying For The Desires Of Our Hearts

Hi there! I hope you’re having a beautiful day. ❤ The idea for this post came to me yesterday while exploring the Bible app on my phone. I came across a verse that has been both a comfort and a hindrance in my walk with the Lord over the years. The verse I’m talking about is Psalm 37:4, where the psalmist tells us that when we delight ourselves in the Lord, He will give us the desires of our heart.

I’d like to talk about this verse because it’s one of those promises of the Lord that can be easily misunderstood. Not quite getting the context can lead one to believe that when we pray for something fervently, and then still don’t get it, it’s tempting to think that this Bible verse is a lie.

I’m here to reassure you that it’s not.

Coffee Chat | He Is Faithful

Coffee Chat | He Is Faithful

Note: I wrote this post the day after I had my first ever surgery. I was thinking about how the Lord had brought me through all of it, which overflowed into the writing of this post. ❤ If you’d like, you can read about my recovery here!

Hey there! I hope you’re having a beautiful Sunday. ❤ This past week, I have been recovering from my first ever surgery. While that has been a lot to adjust to, I’ve also been extremely mindful of the fact that the Lord is the One Who has brought me here. That’s what I’d like to talk about today. Are you ready? Let’s both grab a beautiful cup of coffee and sit down for a lovely chat. ❤

Recovering From Dental Surgery | An Update

Recovering From Dental Surgery | An Update

Hi there! Happy Wednesday to you! ❤ Yesterday morning, I had all four of my wisdom teeth removed, and it went so well! I wanted to share a little update post to thank you for your prayers, encouragement, and for sharing your experiences, as well as to let you know how I’m doing today! 🙂

This was the first major surgery I’ve ever had. The other minor ones were to remove a few stubborn baby teeth back in 2013, as well as something I had done for one of my toenails the following year. It was strange to have been put under yesterday, and even stranger to be recovering from surgery today!

Living Free Of The Past

Living Free Of The Past

Hi there! I hope you’re doing well. ❤ Happy Monday to you 🙂 The topic of today’s post is something that has been on my heart these past few weeks. It has come to my attention in nearly every argument I’ve found myself involved in. The sad part is, it is because of this thing that many of the quarrels even began.

I have been harboring un-forgiveness in my heart.

“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” – 1 John 1:9

Thankful For Prayers Answered

Thankful For Prayers Answered

Hi there! Happy Friday to you! ❤ Yesterday morning, I received some news that granted me mixed emotions. Very shortly after sharing this post, where I talked about surgery being in my near future, my mom found out through a phone call to my insurance company that there was an update on my wisdom teeth surgery.

After talking to the oral surgeon a few weeks ago at the consultation we went to, I found out that my insurance is known for denying approval for the surgery that I need. Because of this, my mom and I were expecting to receive a call letting us know that the insurance would cover one tooth, or three of them – maybe even denying the request altogether. It was really a hit-or-miss situation, but I was expecting the insurance not to cooperate. Either way, I knew the Lord would provide regardless. ❤

Coffee Chat | Waiting On The Lord

Coffee Chat | Waiting On The Lord

Hi there! Happy Sunday to you. ❤ This is going to be a very open and honest post, one that I hope will be able to inspire you on this beautiful weekend. There have been many times throughout my walk with the Lord when I would have deeply appreciated reading something like this while waiting on His timing for something I desired – because it is often not easy. The thoughts and prayers that go through our heads while holding on to faith often lose strength the longer we wait, which is why encouragement along the way is an essential. May you be just as inspired by reading this as I was blessed by writing it. ❤ Let’s both grab a cup of coffee (or your preferred choice of beverage) and sit down for a chat!

Returning To His Word

Returning To His Word

Hello there, and Happy Sunday to you! ❤ This is going to be a quick, update-type post because there’s something on my heart I’d like to share with you this morning.

Over the last few weeks, through prayer and talking to others (thank you, God’s Warrior!), I have slowly been on a journey that is returning me to find enjoyment in reading the Bible. For the longest time now, I have felt lost when it comes to where to read, what I can still get out of the books and chapters I’ve previously studied, and just how to begin finding the Old Testament interesting. It has been a struggle for me, for sure, but I am now more than ready to put my all into loving His Word.
