    Susie Davis - Proverbs 31 Ministries - "Yet tells us the story hasn’t fully been told. Yet tells us a page is about to be turned. Yet tells us God has a different perspective. In our key verse, we see how David felt like God was distant and unfeeling, like He was not listening. And David, like you and me, struggled greatly with fear. But despite all this, David followed his feelings with a powerful yet. And it’s a big one. “Yet you … are Holy.'" - See more at:

    What We’re Really Looking for on Facebook (article) - "But in the very deepest part of me, I really needed to know that Jesus still liked me. He was willing. He was there. He was waiting to speak — in the silence, in real community, in vulnerability — without one click." #beingreal #socialmedia #community #friendship #reallove yeah, day after day, we just keep trying to the wear the habit of saying yes to God. Habits are to the soul what veins are to the blood. The very course of our life depends on them. Random acts of greatness pale in comparison to *habitual acts of faithfulness.*

    Lysa TerKeurst - {} - And that’s when a very clear sentence popped into my head, “You aren’t set aside, Lysa. You are set apart.” It wasn’t audible. And it wasn’t my own thought. I knew it was a thought assigned by God that I needed to ponder. To be set aside is to be rejected. To be set apart is to be given an assignment that requires preparation.

    "Mrs. Moses drops a sheaf for my family every month and forgets about it. She doesn't go back and gather up every grain for her own storehouse, and because of this, we feel like our storehouse is overflowing. No, we don't survive off of what she sends, but we are greatly blessed by it." - Everly; Kindred Grace - Deuteronomy 24:19

    Preparing for Advent: When the First Snow Falls on the Trees- And Your Family Tree Feels Like A Mess -- "Jesus claims exactly these...He grafts you into His line and His story and His heart, and He gives you His name, His lineage, His righteousness. He graces you with plain grace. Is there a greater Gift you could want or need or have? Christ...looks at your family tree and says, “I am your God, and I am one of you, and I’ll be the Gift, and I’ll take you." Ann Voskamp #christmas #advent

    What We Get Wrong About 'Finding God's Will': Relevant Magazine - Great, thoughtful article! - "[God's will] is not a maze for us to perfectly navigate in order to reach our end goal, but instead, God desires for us to trust Him with all of the twists and turns."

    Real Girls, Real Faith: Not There Yet - " I have a goal for each day, each week, and an end goal I'd like to someday achieve... It's about creating new habits as I try to let go of old own ones. Yet the days I give in or give up seem too frequent and I grow discouraged. And it dawned on me, that I'm not there yet."

    When You Feel Like You Just Keep Blowing It: Ann Voskamp via - "No one ever blows it so badly that the Spirit can’t still blow in. And no wind ever blows so hard that it doesn’t carry hope, that it doesn’t blow in blessing too. To kneel and receive both, the impossible made possible by Grace." #realgirls #valley #hope #grace

    The Secret of Brave - - "You may wonder how you can do the very thing He’s called you to. This is where you can’t manufacture what happens next. You can’t organize an effective plan. You can’t conjure up courage. You can’t finally overcome your fears enough to get it done. The secret lies in the waiting."

    Done Waiting - - "We can treat today as the special occasion it is. Stop waiting to celebrate life. Get out the good dishes for tonight’s supper... Use your beautiful things for the people you love the most. Rejoice in the everyday because these moments are what we have right now and they will be gone before we know it. Allow yourself to enjoy and celebrate in this gift of today from the Lord."

    In Between: The Distance from Vision to Reality - - "In Between is where most give up. It gets really hard. There’s a lot of work to be done on our parts, too. Sacrifices are always made when you assumed there wouldn’t be any. In Between is not about waiting for the vision to happen but being a part of the process." #trials #dreams #waiting
