Beauty…

Seeing the beauty and good in life is IN the eyes of the beholder…

We complain at times about “bad weathers” first, there are no bad weather love, let’s take a minute to remind ourselves of this. All-weather does its job, the very thing it was created to do. “Lightning and hail, snow and cold, stormy winds that do his bidding..” -Psalm 148:8

We can still trust that God will take us safely through challenging situations. If he allows or causes things to happen, he has a way out, always! Let’s take snowy roads, for example, sometimes dangerous with ice underneath and causes accidents. We just have to trust that God will be the driver to take us to our destinations safely and alive.

When we complain, love, we miss the beauty, the good in our situations, our surroundings, our inner lives… I, for one love the different seasons here. I am not a fan of the cold lol, but I do appreciate it. See, I’m from the islands where it’s sunny all year round and rainy few months. The fall, I love the changing leaves and watching them fall into heaps. The bright colors burnt orange, yellows, reds. Spring, everything comes to life again. Beautiful purple and pink flowers, bright fresh green fields. It’s lovely. Summer, the warm sun, and opportunities for summer outfits creation. Fireworks… Winter, fluffy snowflakes, snow angels, chocolate tea, yes, please! Naked trees covered with snow, Christmas lights and decorations. All these are beauties we already enjoy. Yes sometimes we get challenging weather but maybe it’s only to slow us down, not to stop us.

God will always be with us, no matter where life takes us we can always choose to see the beauty in life. It will be okay.

Hello, my name is Stephanie! It is my desire for souls to know Jesus personally; To be freed, uplifted, affirmed, and healed through our Savior. Know that you are loved so much! You have so much worth! You ’belong’ even if the world rejects and sees you as nothing! Despite what people around you, or even what your thoughts say about who you are, Jesus's truth is all that matters, and you are precious to him! Here is a bit of my story! I've been oppressed and ’held captive’ in my own mind for many years! I've struggled with depression for over 10 years. I had low self-esteem, not knowing my own worth. I chased after love, affirmation, attention, and a need to feel wanted- in relationships, to finding fulfillment in things. I didn't know how to love myself or how to receive love! I was sad most of the time to the point where I contemplated suicide twice. Deep inside, I felt a little girl full of joy, harmony, and peace who wanted freedom, and to live a fulfilled life; she was trapped inside. In late 2014 Jesus literally called out to me... and told me I would be okay. I committed my life to him in 2016. Since then, so much has happened! I've been finding shelter under his wings, and my mind is continually being renewed by his truth spoken to and about me. I have found and is still amazed by his perfect, unconditional love for me that follows me daily. I have found a secured relationship that attends to every area of my life. My journey started out rough, but it is BEAUTIFUL! It gets rocky and uncomfortable at times, but it is one filled with lessons, wonder, and crazy peace! It's apart of our walk. I am still healing (I view it as a life long process) some days I take a step forward only to take two backward but I now know to not depend on my strength even during healing as I am never alone. There are also many that I am unlearning and detoxing from my spirit that I grew up learning about. I have opened myself to allowing God to use me as I am, as an outlet to reach his precious ones. The purpose of my blog is to encourage a sincere and intentional relationship with Jesus! To help strengthen our faith and walk in him. To heal, uplift, and remind women of who God says we are. To walk in his identity- in hopes that you will know without a doubt that you matter much more than you can understand! I openly share my testimonies and personal experiences. I mean, it's a bit easier to speak and share from experiences. I firmly believe you will be blessed! Find yourself, find your path, and embark on this beautiful journey of life resting in God. Love, it's perfectly okay to be authentic- about where you are in every area of your life- in a world that forces us to mask our emotions and ’put the best forward, so people can ”see and think” we’ve got it all together.’ It's okay to NOT have it all together. Be true to yourself; this is an important step in being completely honest with our Lord.
