“Come, all you who are thirsty,
come to the waters;
and you who have no money,
come, buy and eat!
Come, buy wine and milk
without money and without cost.
Why spend money on what is not bread,
and your labor on what does not satisfy?
Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good,
and you will delight in the richest of fare.” -Isaiah 55:1-2
Why do we settle for less? He freely gives everything, stop looking and striving elsewhere.
This verse has shaped my life the last five months.
I can testify that God is so faithful.
When your desires are His desires He will not withhold any spiritual blessing from you.
Five months ago I cried out to God in an empty heart. I surrendered my plans for my life to Him to allow Him to do whatever He wanted with it. Turns out He just made everything more beautiful.
God asks us to surrender only so that He can give us His plan - which is always greater than our own.
My life has been ROCKED.
Here are just a few things I’ve been blessed with in this little period of time as a product of prayer (and I’m still definitely a work in progress):
-I’ve found total completeness and fullness in Jesus alone
-I’ve learned how to trust and depend on Jesus despite what I don’t understand
-He’s given me a greater revelation of His love, which is so great that my desire for human love has greatly ceased
-He’s given me a clear vision of my future/His plan
-He’s revealed to me what boundaries are important/needed in my life
-He’s given me a love for Modesto and Stockton that was once absolutely nonexistent
-I’ve been given an abundance of beautiful friends with their hearts sold out for Him
-His Word has become alive to me
-I’ve been exposed to miracles, signs, wonders, prophetic words, and healings
-He’s delivered me from a life of fear and self-consciousness that I used to walk in
-He’s provided finances in crazy ways
-He’s given me new talents, abilities, and a boldness
-I’ve learned how to truly forgive and He’s delivered me from hurt
-I’ve learned what carrying my cross actually looks like
-I’ve been given revelation of the Spirit inside of me. He is my identity and I am fully confident of whatever I am called to.
-I’ve learned that I don’t need to be capable, just available. He works through us.
I never knew how epic living for Jesus could be. Every day I’m moved in a new way. Life with Him should never be boring.
One of my most favorite weddings I’ve ever been to or filmed <3
Who’s excited for Fall? I filmed this last year and thought it would be fun to revise the video and repost! <3
I’m overwhelmed by these kind of messages. Thank you for these words. Only a few months ago I was feeling very empty and it was through some faithful Jesus-loving bloggers that gave me hope! Jesus heals every wound and He’ll do it for anyone! Lots of love! Keep seeking Jesus! Matthew 7:7
