~ 26 ~ “When I was ashamed, You called me beautiful.” One thing I am learning and reflecting on today, and the year to come, is the power of self-love. Not only to set yourself free, but to set those around you, whom you love, free. And I’m finally believing in this notion outside of its cliched meaning. I think the hardest and most exhausting thing in the world is loving someone who has no love for themselves. It is a constant battle to make them feel loved and worthy, and it gets to a point where it almost feels like you’re trying to save them from themselves. Sarah Kay puts it so beautifully, “There will be days like these, where you will lift your arms out to fly, but the very ones you’re trying to save are the ones standing on your cape.” I’m trying to find balance between loving someone and trying to save them. The truth is we can’t save anyone, only Jesus can. Being a Christian has made me realize that we can love people hard and through all their difficulties, but we can’t save them. They need to be the ones to make that move. All we can do is stand ready to hold their hands when they are willing to make those steps toward self-love and healing. I want to spend the next year practicing loving myself so it’s easy for the ones I love to love me. I want to press into God’s unconditional adoration for me so I can step out into His quiet confidence. I want to teach the ones I love that they can do the same, that they are worthy to do the same, that I can’t save them, but that first step will be the most healing thing they’ll ever do for themselves and me. Thank you @arvettee for this picture 💕

So proud of my Sunday adventure. I lazed about all day and ended up making #nicecream for myself and @dan.lun. I favoured the chocolate whilst Daniel went crazy over the peanut butter, which actually had a better consistency than the chocolate. #plantbased #dessert 😍🌱

“Take courage my heart. Stand steadfast my soul. He’s in the waiting. He’s in the waiting. Hold on to your hope as His triumph unfolds. His never failing. His never failing.” The past year has been one of breaking old foundations and building new ones. This year coming, have courage, @ariellakat, as God makes those foundations you’ve built in Him stronger and unbreakable so you remain unshakable in midst of trials and tribulations, and humble and gracious in moments of happiness and clarity. There’s no doubt you’re becoming the woman of God He needs you to be so you can help lead the lost back home. God doesn’t need us, but He sure wants us. Keep moving. Keep growing. Know you are loved completely. Happy 26th birthday. 💕😘

Feeling quite nostalgic this morning. Sometimes I love scrolling through all my pics on instagram and seeing just how quickly life can change. But sometimes I also get this overwhelming sense that maybe, just maybe, I was happier or more creative or more adventurous “back then.” Anyone feel this way when looking back? Or do you feel like the current season you’re in is the best you’ve ever had?

He knows our hearts inside and out because He is the Creator of them. He will always lead us where we must be even if ours hearts break. He wants to ensure we are reconciled fully to Him. Healed fully by His love. Perfectly completed by His grace. Keep walking. Thank you @chrisdewet_ & @charlizebooysen for the adventure and these pics! 📷 at The Maboneng Precinct

To the lady with the fire hair, you've set my heart on fire. Happiest birthiversary @samplesizedskye! Thank you for existing. You never fail to inspire me. The way you do life is nothing short of extraordinary. I never believed in superheroes but you're sure one in my eyes. You don't take shit, but your heart is radiantly beautiful and kind. I've learnt so much in the short time of knowing you and for that I'm so grateful! Ok ok! Enough with the cheesy stuff! I love you and kick ass like always this year coming!
