Nature’s Healing

For some, nature can be a very inviting place. It helps to revive the mind, body, and spirit. Feeling Down? Irritated? Stressed? Try stepping outside for about 15 minutes even if it’s just to sit on your balcony/ patio. It helps to clear the mind of our everyday thoughts, worries, and routines.

Nature also helps to put us in a better mood… It slows time down and allows us to live in the present moment if we let it. Inhaling the fresh air, listening to birds chirping or other animals scurrying in nearby bushes. beautiful winged butterflies visiting to enjoy the weather with us. Devices away and a sit on a bench in a nice quiet area gives us the space to connect with our inner selves and tackle any area that’s been nudging at us whether through prayer or making a decision on that thing we’ve been thinking about for the past… every day. Plus great way to get some steps in! Exercise :D! Peaceful and safe communication happens when our critical voice isn’t so loud anymore.

Being at a park in a city with my stepdad on some Sunday afternoons adds peace. While he is riding I enjoy walking 1 or 2 laps before being drawn by the lake, the different types of flowers, such beauty :)! Or by this track that leads to a little secluded area where it’s half shaded and half sunned-your choice! I sometimes sit here and relax, breathing deeply with my eyes closed, listening to the birds, or clearing my mind. Having a cluttered mind is very much like having a cluttered/ messy space. For some, it makes it challenging to focus or rest unless our space is tidy.

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.
