Recapturing Hope


Love this outfit.  It brings a new idea to "business professional."  Sparkles on a quality collared blouse... FINALLY we meet!
Sunnies | Firmoo       Temporary Jewel Blouse | Sugarlips        Skirt | Maurices



I have now realized that this new "maturity" I am growing into is accompanied by many new things.   For one, I am thinking through many more decisions I make and things I am about to say before following through.  Second, I am trying to become selfless in a way that allows me to share the joy I have inside in a manner that ATTEMPTS to draw less attention to myself.  Third, I am seeing God in so much more in life.  This third point is something I have missed and anticipated.

Oh... how youth so easily escapes your life, but upon return it's like the gentle touch of a mother cradling her baby who was crying out, just to be held.  Just because time passes by does not mean times have to change from your perspective.

But seriously... I do not see why people think being truly happy and filled with joy is so outlandish.  My joy comes from the Lord.  Obviously I haven't been "happy happy" every single breathing moment of my existence.  I have gone through "gray periods in life" where I feel like I am hiding from our Lord or am so preoccupied with school, work, volunteering, family and projects that I am in a sense running away or past God.  And yes, everyone can fake something; but only for so long.  True joy is so precious.  I am so happy I am filled with it once again- but I know it is only from Our God.



"3In reply Jesus declared, “I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.a” 4“How can a man be born when he is old?” Nicodemus asked. “Surely he cannot enter a second time into his mother’s womb to be born!”
5Jesus answered, “I tell you the truth, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit. 6Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spiritb gives birth to spirit. 7You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘Youc must be born again.’ 8The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.”"
