Happy New Year, Family! (Yes, it’s still new.)
I hope your January went well and your February is falling in alignment.
I don’t know about you, but it’s been a jam-packed so far. A lot of good, a wave of grief, jolts of anticipation, some foggy fatigue, and a lot of “what the what?” The second month of the year is fresh and I’m already wondering what else is in store.
From my continued health goals to smashing through internal brick walls with courageous fists, I’m in 2023 with my whole heart. All of me.
And that’s not a comfortable arena, but I’m willing to walk forward in everything God is calling me to do.
It’s official. I’ve fallen in love with my journey.
The curves, the mountaintops, the forests, the depths… all of it. All of me.
And if I unfasten my armor a little, you’ll also find traces of fear. Christians hate to admit that, but I don’t mind saying it. God already knows its there, so why not? Both co-exist in my chest at any given moment. It’s the mix of knowing your marching orders and still feeling butterflies as you take the first step. It’s taking off your security blanket and feeling the chill before the warmth.
It’s saying “OK, let’s go.”
At this point in my life, I’ve finally fallen in love with faith. I never thought I would say those words. The open space over the line of trust can be intimidating if you forget who’s on the other side… the better version of yourself. The purpose smoldering inside of your heart. The beautiful blooms waiting to break forth from the garden of your soul.
My prayer is that you fall in love with the grit because you know it’s going to make you shine.
That you fall in love with the mud because it’s where the seeds live.
I pray you hold God’s hand and fall in love.
Peace & Thanks for listening. I love y’all. 🙂

Fall in love with your faith! That is so profound. In the end, our faith, hope and love is all that we have! I think we too often fall in love with our fears and what could go wrong. But to fall in love with your faith! That is profound. I want to get there. Thanks for sharing!!
