Allow me to lift the skirt of self-preservation. That you might take a peek into the underlying abscess that haunts and taunts slowly & surely. That hinders and holds up.
ME. My love hate relationship w/ myself. My overly concerned mind for what’s mine. (Or not...) The doubts + questions that poke, prod and plunder His design.
The inner tyrant trying to grasp time to mold it and fold it into linear lines.
A simple thought dances through my mind: What if I was secure enough in God’s plans for my life that I could invest FULLY into the plans He has for others?
What if I stopped....? Stopped the worry in exchange for wonder. Stopped reopening old wounds of fearful apprehensions of coulda, shoulda, woulda’s...? He knows my heart. He knows I want to but CAN’T. He implanted the longing after all.
Then why I do I consistently live like He has NO clue what He’s doing?
No. He knows. I don’t. And it’s okay. Not knowing is not bad.
“Stopping” creates space to START. Start living to see my brother... my sister... become better. Become more. To shift my concern for myself to their interests. Their desires and dreams. Their faith-journey.
Maybe this is what He had in mind for my design the whole time... His design for my time — become obsessively determined to see them see Him. Coming alongside another and taking hold of their hand creates more fruit than picking at the scabs of unbelief that He’s working to heal.
Our purpose isn’t somewhere in the future. It’s here. It’s now.
when your dreams of Elevation Worship come true in unexpected ways. (*far right.... 😂🦈)
SO FAR: over 300 salvations @ #ythx18 Guys. This is epic. Jesus is moving. And I’m happy to dance around like Jaws any day of the week for that. at Elevation Church
#YTHX18 !!!! Already over 120 salvations for the middle schoolers with one more day to go!
some new friends. apparently I reminded him of his momma.
so we became buddies.😭❤️ #dead at Lake Lure, North Carolina
OKAY W/ UNINTERESTED.
They're NOT that in to you and it’s OKAY. 😅👍🏽 *link in bio.
One of the most difficult things about being in a single season (I feel personally. *can ya relate ?) is when you see someone SO fly but they only seem to fly past you... #fail 🙄✌🏽 Don’t you hate it when you find out they really... heh... AREN’T that into you?
Do you ever do that thing where you justify their lack of interaction with you for their secretly suppressed feelings of love and desire for you ? “He never talks to me because secretly... he’s in to me.” Maybe he/she said hi to be friendly?
And when that person DOESN'T take notice of you or acknowledge your human existence maybe (quite possibly) they just weren’t paying attention. 👌🏽 Whatever is REALLY going on in their head how can we be OKAY when they are totally uninterested?
What if your feelings are not mutual?
If we dig deeper in our hearts a lot of times we desire relationship with other humans... specifically romantic ones... because we want validation. 👍🏽👍🏽 We want to know that we are WORTH being noticed. —for me; that in the midst of a sea of pretty girls I’M the one you see. Because I see YOU.
The deep longing to be known + wanted is nothing new.
It’s real. Not necessarily bad either. But when we find ourselves gazing more at the uninterested person we are interested in RATHER THAN our infinitely INVESTED Father we find ourselves in an exhausting place. “For your Creator will be your husband; the Lord of Heaven’s Armies is his name! He is your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel, the God of all the earth.”
Don’t try to cup it or cage it.
Force it or fake.
If it’s God, I believe there’s NOTHING you can do to stop it from happening. at Single Bro
if art was a fart it would be saturating my soul w/ filters of light. I have no clue what that means butttt, 🎨😐 BASICALLY it’s my poetic, “abstracty” “nonesensey” way of saying —I’m grateful beyond belief for every soul this Summer has encompassed. so much connection. so much luv. so much Jesus. at Wilmington, North Carolina
let us offer through Jesus a continual sacrifice of praise to God; proclaiming our allegiance to His name. —h e b. 1 3 : 1 5
Today left me speechless. Having the opportunity to witness in detail the life of one my spiritual heroes wrecked me. The legacy of Billy Graham goes without saying. To stand at the foot of the very pulpit he preached with SUCH passion from was overwhelming.
I won’t forget it. Ever. at Billy Graham Library
you’re not nutella.
you can’t make everyone happy. at Looking Glass Falls
drove 4 h r s for pancakes.🥞
I expressed to God a week ago a desire to be submerged in His creation.
I can only inhale the smells + sounds of the city for so long y’all. When I received the spontaneous request to go on an adventure w/ the queen herself (s/o to @thequeenbean_ ) I was soo down. 🍂
What intended to be a simple trek to a nearby hiking spot turned into an all day adventure of exploring new places. Revisiting the old. Jesus-loving waitresses. The revelation that it’s probably a better idea to carry cash. (😅🤑) & just because we didn’t know where we were at all times it never felt like we were “lost,” but found in something greater.
Jesus leads us along a similar path... when the seemingly simple ventures become sagas; onlookers wonder as you wander. “Maybe they’ve lost their minds...”
Nah. I’ve actually never felt more found. It’s the — I have no clue where I am, and yet, I know perfectly where I’m going, moment.
My compass. My GPS.
I love Him more than the destination anyways. Maybe it’ll take a little longer. Maybe the gas tank looks freakishly low. Maybe you should’ve brought cash. But most times the places of uncertainty bring more understanding than the agenda we comprise.
Enjoy the ride. And go find pancakes. They’re worth the drive. at Great Smoky Mountains, Gatlinburg, TN
Today I spent my 4th of July in NC. 🇺🇸 First time. I’d do it again. It was weird w/o my fam. Yes. but God provides. I love my radTASTIC compadres (not all pictured) + muh just-met-today-at-a-random-cookout friends. God is so good to me. Gosh, I’m blessed.🌭
today I’m grateful for:
bikes. BBQ. blessins + the liberating bliss we’ve been gifted as ‘mericans. thank you all that fought for this freedom. And my Jesus who sets me free on the dailyy. 💙✨
I wish I could say this moment changed him. I have no clue. But it definitely changed me.
It’s not everyday you get to meet one of your heroes of the faith. Especially after an intense bootcamp session.
I remember at 17 fresh in my faith reading, “Sun Stand Still” in between classes. I remember what it felt like as my faith was revolutionized w/ every paragraph I devoured.
It’s an honor to be able to serve the vision God has given Pastor @stevenfurtick + @hollyfurtick .
And too — to believe my God for awesome things in my own life as I CHOOSE to walk in audacious faith.
Let’s face it... ^I was a little stinky. A lotta sweaty. But this moment felt pivotal. Like someOne left half the loaf on the trail of bread crumbs. Full circle... A reminder of His faithfulness.
I think I’ll keep walking this way. Life with Jesus is work + sometimes weird. But worth it. Man, is it worth it. at Elevation Church
don’t forget to love. like reallyyyyy LOVE. *esp. during Love Week. it’s the crim dela creme of our calling. and it neva fails. 💛

God is funny. I ran out of coffee and felt it was a GREAT excuse to hit up my fave coffee place in Charlotte @brakemanscoffee for some java + Jesus time. —To my surprise, they were dishing out FREE coffee (manna from Heaven for this intern budget🙌🏽😭) __
I was asked to be interviewed and had the privilege of meeting the beautiful @pagefehling and the joyfully caffeinated Jason! *also got to do a shameless plug for #LoveWeek ... BOOMskies.
During the 2nd interview I was w/ another girl. We were being interviewed about the World Cup *which we both knew zilch about... 😅🙄
But God knows. During the interview Page mentioned that I’m a Christian here from Fl interning at @elevationchurch. @jezrahh (my fellow interviewy) also came to Charlotte to build God’s Kingdom and we shared stories there after.
THAT’S MY JESUS.
God knows what we need when we need it. He knew my childhood dream of being a newscaster. He knows how much free coffee makes my heart happy. Yeah, I probably made a totally nub of myself on TV. But it was fun and I made new friends. My heart is full. ☕️❤️
