My biggest fear: - ✖️ not heights ✖️ not spiders ✖️ not tight spaces ✖️not being buried alive (lol had to throw that one in there) - But (drumroll......) ✅ making the wrong decision! - I fight a constant battle of worrying that there is something I could do to screw up God’s plan for my life. Obviously, I *know* that I don’t have that much power. But I still find myself subconsciously thinking “God, are you sure you are still sovereign over THIS?” When you say it that way, it sounds a little ridiculous 😑 ..... because it is - My life verse is Romans 8:28 “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” - As long as we’re walking with Jesus, He is working for our GOOD. That doesn’t mean we won’t have troubles or take a wrong turn. We know we WILL have troubles. But Jesus is the greatest treasure we can have, and if we have Him, we have more than we could ever want, need or ask for. - So, I hope you can feel a little lighter going into this week knowing that the weight of the world doesn’t rest on your shoulders. Rest. Let God be God. All you have to do is walk with Him. You don’t have to know where you’re going. - #faithoverfear #worship #walkingwithjesus #onestepatatime #faith
nobody : me :
how deep the Father’s love for us
My mom asked me last week if I wanted to go with her to see @pink in Nashville. Well, I knew Pink has been on her bucket list, and what’s better than a quick mother-daughter trip to Nashville?! Thanks for bringing me along! 💞#coolestmomaward #beautifultraumatour #pink P.S. Pink has definitely inspired me to take my workout regime a little more seriously... 🤪💃🏻
Surprise, it’s raining again 🙃☔️ My heart goes out to all the dog moms. #muddypaws #rainraingoaway
My best friend. My lover. My goofy counterpart. My BIRTHDAY BOY 🎈✨ I hope year 23 is the best yet! I love you! ❤️
Let’s talk about contentment... Too often, we allow our current situations to define our contentment. We get caught in the comparison trap and start to feel like our everyday lives are redundant and mundane. We start to believe the devil’s lie that our jobs, hobbies, relationships, etc. define us and give us purpose. So when our worldly achievements, goals and desires start to fail, our identity and sense of purpose goes down with it. Goals, dreams and desires are all good things. But Jesus is THE good thing. He wants to give you the desires of your heart, but He wants to BE the desire of your heart. Your struggles are temporary. Your success is temporary. But your love for Jesus and His love for you is eternal. So cling to Him and rest in Him. You won’t find true contentment anywhere else. “But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it.” 1 Timothy 6:6-7 #contentment #mondaymotivation #worship #goodnews
I’m so blessed with the most amazing husband who loves me so well, supports me through the good times and the bad times, and never fails to put a smile on my face. Even when we fight, you can make me laugh!!..which usually just makes me more mad 🤣 I love you, Travis! Happy Valentine’s Day!
interrupting your regular sappy valentine’s day programming to show you my furry valentine 🧡🧡🧡 no worries @travis_geisel you are still my human valentine & your own sappy post is coming later 🤪 see you soon 💕 #crazycatlady #sorrynotsorry #catsofinstagram #valentinesday #furryvalentine
Nothing catches God by surprise. Nothing is too screwed up for Him to fix. He is the orchestrator, the way maker, the chain breaker, the life giver... He uses broken and ordinary people to do his work. He equips the unqualified to do what He has called them to do. He makes something out of nothing. He is making everything beautiful in its time.
Can’t believe this is our 5th Christmas together! 🎄🎁❤️ Travis celebrated Christmas today with his patients in the cardiovascular intensive care unit... Yesterday, someone asked him if he was upset he had to work on Christmas, and he said, “well, the patients don’t really want to be there either.” I love my guy and his servant heart. Merry Christmas! ❤️
🥰🎄 Merry Christmas!
I love you because something could be going horribly wrong until it gets silent for 3 seconds and we both burst out laughing. I love you because I committed to love you every single day since this day 2 years ago. We’ve definitely had our struggles, but we’ve kept our faith. Whenever I get frustrated or anxious about the future, I think back to when 2 college students started a life together with just enough money to pay 6 months of rent. To look back on how far we’ve come and say we’ve been blessed is an understatement. I don’t know why God chose to bless us other than to give the glory back to Him. 2 years down, and this is just the beginning! Happy anniversary! 12•18•16
Meet my newest friend, Jackie. 🦙 I have loved getting to participate in Journey to Bethlehem this year! If you missed it last night, y’all can still come by tonight from 5-8 @ebceastcampus
Had such a fun time with the small group seeing Christmas lights and eating sno cones! Love these people 💕
it’s the most wonderful time of the year 🎄 Our last two Christmas seasons have been jam packed. 2 years ago, we got married and went on our honeymoon, and last year we bought and moved into our house, so we’ve never had the chance as a married couple to do the fun holiday things or just relax and enjoy Christmas time. SO I’m excited to finally have a break this year to sit back and enjoy our home, the Christmas season, and the season of life we are in! ❤️ #merrychristmas #december1st #hellodecember #christmastimeishere
‘Tis the season for puppy snuggles!!!! 💙💙💙 (although he’s not much of a puppy anymore 😭) #germanshepherd #gsd
The best things in life are not what you choose, but what God chooses for you. Family is one of those things. ❤️ happy thanksgiving 2018 🍁
Just passing through and we couldn’t pass up the oldest restaurant in Tunica....or the white wall photo op. 🤷🏻♀️
Bear also wishes it felt like fall.
