New Season Coming Soon!🍁🍂❤

20180816_162357_0001

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m soooo ready for fall!! It’s the end of summer where I am, and temps are already kind of dropping! It’s not 100 degrees anymore everyday so I can feel it… Fall is just around the corner! I live on the east coast of the US and here, the seasons are very… seasony LOL. Summers are HOT, winters are COLD and we get snow (some years we’re buried in it! lol), in spring everything blooms (which is incredible to see after everything has died in winter), and in fall, leaves change color, and it is just AMAZING. Fall is my FAVORITE SEASON. And I’m not talking just Pumpkin Spice lattes here lol. Not only is the weather always perfect in the fall, but my birthday is in the fall, and then we have Thanksgiving which is one of my favorite holidays. Fall to me is always a time of new beginnings and transformation. Of going through those necessary changes and of growth. It’s about that process, that work God has started within us! I mean He is always working in us, but this season reminds me of that.

being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. — Phillipians 1:6 NIV

Maybe it’s also because I worked in education. Fall always means a new school year! Fresh new start, which means new challenges, new friends, new adventures, and GROWTH! Learning new things! Like the trees shed their leaves, we shed our old ways. 🍁🍂We’re adults now and many of us are done with studies, but I feel like the same principle can still apply. We can take our relationship with God to the next level and keep learning and growing in Him! 💪🤓

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. — Romans 12:2 NIV

It’s so weird, Thanksgiving was extremely difficult for me back in the day. I used to hate Thanksgiving and Christmas. Not because of the holidays themselves and what they represented, but because they were just such difficult times. I don’t know why, but the pressure was always too much for me. I was already depressed, & those holidays used to make me so much more depressed. I used to get depressed about the fact that I was depressed! And it was a downward spiral. I’ve noticed in general, at least in my life, the enemy uses special occasions to carry out his most vicious attacks. Have you noticed this in your life? As I’ve kept growing in the ways of the Lord, I’ve learned to discern when situations present themselves, and when the enemy is trying to whisper things in my ear that are against God & His perfect will. I’ve noticed a pattern. He always tries on special moments & occasions. He tries his very best to steal happiness and ruin those special moments. Lord rebuke him! He is not and will not be successful, in Jesus name. We need to remind the enemy that he’s already defeated! 🙌💪🙏

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” — John 16:33 NIV

Those are times we need to be reaching out to people in need. Even those who SEEM to have everything, like material things, but emotionally, may not be doing so well. Many times, people can have everything they need materially speaking, but the one thing missing is not there, which is Jesus. So they still feel empty & alone, even though they may be surrounded by people even. Thank you Jesus for rescuing me out of that pit! I hope every person who is going through a depression, sees the transformational power that only God can do in one’s life. I never thought I would get out of that depression. But one day, in my despair, I decided to believe Jesus. We ourselves have to make that decision. ❤

Anyways now I love fall and I really do look forward to it! 🍂🍁 🍃 I decided I’m going to give my blog a fall/ winter theme “makeover” lol, and I will also be sharing with you other really cool things… So stay tuned 😉 😎🤓

I also want to welcome all the new followers I’ve received over the past few weeks/ months! I am so grateful & look forward to getting to know people & sharing God’s word. I hope you have a blessed weekend!  Xoxo 💖💖
