I’m defining rest and recreation for myself this year. To my surprise I couldn’t define these things for myself when completing my #powersheets prep. Margin of my days fills quickly in the trenches of work, marriage, motherhood, and ministry. What could rest and recreation even look like in this full life season?
Apparently it looks like reframed vision to see marriage, motherhood and ministry as my rest and recreation. And even more, to pick out tiny pockets of remaining margin for meaningful opportunities.
Last week that looked like saying yes to a full day of refueling in ministry with those running with me on mission. It meant saying yes to a girl’s weekend in D.C. It was filling the last couple days with good meals, great conversations and sowing seeds of joy with women who first taught me what it looks like to love others well. It’s making sure ordinary things like groceries and laundry are tended to before we head into a new week.
God has reminded me rest and recreation were here all along. The abundant life isn’t some day it’s today. Sometimes all we need is a shift of perspective. Amen?
“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
Matthew 6:19-21 NIV “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Everything changed for me on 9-29-14. All I did was surrender.
Contrary to popular belief, there IS a solution. Also contrary to popular belief, that solution is God. Need proof? You’re looking at it.
I’m on a mission to help people find freedom from those awful chains of addiction and brokenness. The freedom I enjoy today is like a fire, and everyone around me is gonna feel it. Miracles do happen. If you need one...just surrender.

You are with us every step of the way, yet we lose faith because of fear of the outcome of our future. 🤔
Faith casts out fear…. while fear cast out faith.
Lord, I lift up my hands 🙌 in praise and surrender my life to you this morning. 🙏
Help me to take my hands off every problem, every worry and every situation that I am trying to fix on my own.
Lord Jesus, I cast all of my cares and burdens on You. 🙌
Open my eyes 👀and my heart ❤️ to see that You know what is best for me.
Strengthen my FAITH to take You at Your word. 🙋♀️📕 Cast out fear, remove all doubt, disconnect uncertainty and block all unbelief.
Let me find comfort in knowing Lord that You are in control. ☝️🙌 Amen. 🙏❤️ #faith#movemountains#livingwithoutcompromise#godisgood
