International Women's Day #GOALS

She makes plans, but the Lord's purpose will prevail [Proverbs 19:21]. His plans are for good and not for disaster, to give her a hope and a future [Jeremiah 29:11]. And if God gives such attention to the wildflowers, don't you think He'll attend to His girl? [Matthew 6:30] He delights in every detail of her life [Psalm 37:23]. She is His workmanship, His poem [Ephesians 2:10] -- and He is her salvation, her song [Isaiah 12:2]. He knitted her together in her mother's womb -- fearfully and wonderfully made [Psalm 139:13-14].

Her hands are busy [Proverbs 31:19], working skillfully with all her heart, as unto the Lord [Colossians 3:23]. She can do all this through Him who strengthens her [Philippians 4:13].

She trusts in Him with all her heart, not leaning on her own understanding, but acknowledges Him in all her ways. He makes straight her paths as she keeps on asking, keeps on seeking, and keeps on knocking [Proverbs 3:5-6, Matthew 7:7]. He gives her the desires of her heart as she delights in Him [Psalm 37:4].

Since God chose her to be holy, she wears compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience [Colossians 3:23] and is clothed in strength and dignity [Proverbs 31:25a]. Her mind is set on things above, not on earthly things [Colossians 3:2], so she laughs without fear of the future [Proverbs 31:25b].

Surely His goodness and unfailing love will pursue her all the days of her life [Psalm 23:6], for nothing can separate her from the love of God [Romans 8:39]. If He is on her side, who can be against her? [Romans 8:31]

010916 x Mission Off-the-Grid

[Our first adventure of 2016: Mission Off-the-Grid]

The bestie and I took a little vision-retreat-sabbatical-off-the-grid hiatus to ask the Lord for fresh vision for 2016. 

"Write this. Write what you see. Write it out in big block letters so that it can be read on the run. This vision-message is a witness pointing to what's coming. It aches for the coming -- it can hardly wait! And it doesn't lie. If it seems slow in coming, wait. It's on the way. It will come right on time." [Habakkuk 2:2-3]

Growing up, I loved making prayer journals out of magazine clipping collages...whatever was inspiring me at the time was what filled my notebook cover (specifically puppies and Christian boy bands circa 2004). I recently happened upon the journals (when I was prepping for our NYE party of the century - read more here) and was so encouraged flipping through the pages...thanking God for the promises He's brought to pass, and continuing to pray for dreams in those journals.

The NYE girls seemed to love crafting their own journals, but Blaire and I didn't get around to making ours that night...so we took the goods to get it done while away!

Grateful for our off-the-grid moment. Grateful for renewed vision and stirred up dreams. Back at it and ready for 2016...it's gonna be a big one. :)
