“For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.” - Philippians 1:21 . . . “The whole of the Christian life is centered on Jesus Christ. Like Paul the contemporary Christian can say: “To me to live is Christ.” But often, in Christian experience, we are tempted to look elsewhere for direction, example, counsel and guidance. We lose sight of the fact that everything we need to live the Christian life is to be found exclusively in Christ. For this reason when we begin thinking about spiritual growth we must think first all about Christ.” - Sinclair furgeson #kindredinchrist

Hey girl! 🙋‍♀️ What did your weekend look like? It was one of nothing on the calendar, pizza party for two, with a mini Netflix binge (the Office) kind of weekend in the Kline household. Perfect for a homebody like me. I jumped into this study that I picked up on a recommendation from the lovely Sydney over @thesweetlyco. It is a deep dive into modern-day idolatry and the things/people/etc that we place as idols over our lives and hearts. I am only on day two and WOAH GIRL I can tell this is going to kick me where it hurts! 🙌 What does your bible study look like lately? Do you have an all-time favorite Bible study or Bible teacher? I am always looking for new ideas! 💕

To whom also presented Himself alive after His suffering by many infallible proofs, being seen by them during forty days and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God. And being assembled together with them, He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, which He said, "you have heard from Me. For John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now." ...Therefore, when they had come together, they asked Jesus, saying, "Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?" And He said to them, "It is not for you to know times and seasons which the Father has put in His own authority. But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be witness to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth."🙏... Now when He had spoken these things, while they watched, Jesus was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight. And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel, who also said, "Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus,👆 who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven." (Acts 1: 3-11). Amen 📖 .... @barbaravd32💌 #truth #choosejoy #Godslove #GodlovesYou #JesusChrist #propelwomen #bedeeplyrooted #givemeJesus  #thepointedlife #faithinspired #gracemakers #womenintheword  #goodnewsfeed  #seekHimfirst  #butfirstJesus #intheword  #prayerjournal  #SAVIOR #WordofGod  #inspirational #trust #joy #graceupongrace

Ever get overwhelmed? Sometimes I get up for my morning routine and fall asleep on the couch(fail), some evenings I plan to do read for grad school and write an IEP and instead end up crying and getting in bed early. Sometimes our days aren’t perfect, but we can make the most of it by trying to take control (see me doing yoga whilst listening to workshop music) and remembering that were still daughters of the most high— amen and amen 💜

I would love to tell you that my house is perfect, but it’s not.⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ Those chords behind the TV? We used to hide them with those plastic pieces that I even painted to match the wall, but they fell off and took my wall paint with it.⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ This cover on the couch? It’s there because our sweet little dog chewed the piping from her separation anxiety. Oh, and because toddlers.⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ The floor? It hasn’t been vacuumed in a week, and while that’s starting to drive me crazy, I’ve learned that it’s not the end of the world.⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ Why am I telling you all of this? Because these little squares only show a glimpse of real life, and I’m tired of hearing how bad it is for us to grow up in the Pinterest generation.⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ I love Pinterest. I love pretty pictures. And I love a clean house. But I’m focused on loving the real life in front of me even if it’s just store-bought Valentine cards and a dirty floor. Being a homeowner and a toddler and dog Mama isn’t easy (or clean), but it’s the privilege I used to dream of.⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ How can you be grateful for your mess right now?⁣⠀

M I N D —————— M A T T E R . I am a worrier. I stress. I toil. I actually have to admit I spend so much time doing this I could probably accomplish a task in that time. But that’s not how worrying works. Worrying likes to make you feel trapped in your head. It makes you believe you are all alone and have the worlds longest list of things to get done and it is OVERWHELMING! 🙃😝 Worrying is me trying to control the outcome. It is not me allowing God to work. Worrying is me telling God to step back because “I got this”. That is a bold statement to tell the creator of the universe. 🌎 Y’all I didn’t even know I was doing this!! I just slowly started filling up my plate until it was too full and then I started to juggle. Seriously, my life is often a giant mess. 🌪🤷🏻‍♀️ However, I can trust and believe that God has it handled. What has been so comforting to me is knowing my creator mapped out my days before the beginning of time. Although, I do not always understand, I can always trust in Him. 🙌🏼💗 In my devotional it referenced John 1:16, “For from His fullness we have received, grace upon grace.” Oh what a sweet reminder that I don’t have to do it all or get it all right. God has blessed me with His grace and He has blessed you too! ✨ . #worrywart #graceupongrace #blessed #progressoverperfection #imnotperfect #imnottryingtobe #msmom #mississippi
