Two nights in a row of worship. Two nights in a row of a glimpse of heaven. Two nights in a row of fellowship.

We believe that greater things are still to come. 

Tonight was a glimpse of Heaven. How crazy blessed are we?

Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning. (‭Lamentations‬ ‭3‬:‭23‬ NLT) therefore “Arise! Let your light shine for all to see. For the glory of the LORD rises to shine on you. (‭Isaiah‬ ‭60‬:‭1‬ NLT) 

Shine on.

I love these two people more than they know. I’m genuinely blessed to have them in my life. Thanks for tolerating me. #latergram #vscocam

bowie-with—boobs:

I am actually so freakin’ excited for when I get the photos from today’s shoot and the short one from the other night, because the pictures are so beautiful (thanks to imanigivertz) like, these ones we did with this fur piece I have are so stunning. I can’t. 

Can’t wait for you to see them!! You’re such a beauty, girl.

There will always be someone out there that will appear to be better than you in what you do. There will always be someone out there that seems to be more loved than you. There will always be someone out there that has more of what you want.

And that’s where we get lost. That’s when we find ourselves in the chaos of envy and lose ourselves in the bliss of contentment with what we have.

Being focused on finding the love that someone else has, distracts from the love that you do have.
Being determined to be better than someone who takes better pictures, writes better words, or has different opportunities in life, takes away from the opportunities you do have but miss because you’re so focused on someone else’s, creates angry words that flow from a pen, and kills the joy of taking photos because you have already given yourself the thought notion that they are going to be less than.

Looking for that stamp of approval in everything you do, will only diminish the joy that you once felt which started your journey, and replace it with self doubt.

Approval from people is a want from the devil.
Approval from God is a want from Jesus.

And should be a want by you.

"But don’t be so concerned about perishable things like food. (Or your image because that is your shell that has an expatriation date as well, your career and being on top, your relationships on earth, etc.)
Spend your energy seeking the eternal life that the Son of Man can give you. For God the Father has given me the seal of his approval.” (‭John‬ ‭6‬:‭27‬ NLT)

So stop comparing and searching for the approval of your peers, your Instagram followers, your crush, and anyone else. Start doing what you love with understanding that everyone’s path and journey is and will always be different than yours. Be proud of yourself, confident in your profession and art, comfortable and grateful for the gifts you have been blessed with, and happy for others instead of envious towards them.

Happy for others: God
Envy of others: Devil

For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. (‭Jeremiah‬ ‭29‬:‭11‬ NLT)

Tonight was so incredible. Thank you, @iamnickvujicic for being you and for coming to Florida to speak the Word and overflowing the room with love.  (at Christ Fellowship)
