Purpose

The push inside of me to hustle and prove is so exhausting. I don’t want to strive in my Purpose and my calling. I want to add value. I want to be someone who others feel peace around. I want to create a space of Grace for those closest to me and for myself.

As a mom I can really struggle with “More.” I’m not talking about more stuff. I’m talking about “doing” more. Do I have to do more to add value? There are seasons when we need to run ahead and then there are seasons when we need to just be. It’s vital that you and I know the season we are in and embrace it.

This is how we bring meaning:

We encourage and lift the ceiling off people who are without hope. We anchor ourselves in Christ and allow Him to speak. We listen and we stop and pray. We encourage and snuggle our kids and we stop and encourage our husbands. We come alongside our bosses and we authentically smile at those we pass by in the grocery store.

Meaning isn’t reserved for the people who have position or title, It’s reserved for you and I. Let’s be intentional today. I woke up very rushed and trying to prove this morning. So, I’m going to take a moment and be intentional and go apologize to my husband. What will you do today to bring meaning to someone?

I would love to hear.

Love,

Regan

I’m in a new season of stretch and to be honest I have needed God more and more. That is probably where He continually wants us all to live. TOTAL DEPENDANCE ON HIM!

I decided to take some pics before Ivy’s nap time of her and I. We just moved and I’m in the middle of doing her room and really wanted some updated pics of her to hang on her wall.

Uncovering the “Wonder Woman” Within US

This month I’m highlighting some very wise nuggets from the book, Uninvited by Lysa Terkeurst. I am taken by this book. It’s ridiculously good for my impatient, tore up little heart some days.

If you are like me and are prone to make up stories in your mind about what you assume people think about you, you need this book.

You also may need this book if you have at anytime in your life been hurt or rejected by a family member or close friend. Lysa has revealed in this book ways we as women can overcome the crippling and stuck feeling of rejection.

I’m going to highlight two words in the first couple chapters that made me spit my coffee out of my mouth!

10218200-258465860_73-s1-v1

1) AIRBRUSHED LOVE

2) LIVE LOVED

Lysa, is talking about comparing our marriages with unrealistic expectations. The pictures on instagram that are perfect are not reality. We need to be careful summing up our behind the scenes to other peoples high-light reel moments on social media.

“I’d think, I am doing everything I can to protect my marriage, but then watch a movie with so much airbrushed love that I couldn’t help but be slightly disappointed with my reality.”

The real love we need and may already have, but fail to see is hard and requires blood, sweat and tears. Nobody wakes up perfect. We have to give ourselves GRACE in our marriage, raising our kids and in our relationships. We need to check our expectations at the door of our hearts. It’s only going to cause us to be discontent.

I’m struggling with my patience lately. It’s a funny thing… I don’t have anyyyy! I get super frustrated if the kids aren’t moving fast enough, things aren’t done in my timing and when I say. I need help in this area. I probably need to slow my roll down and remember what’s really important. I need to live in the LOVE OF MY HEAVENLY FATHER. I’m tore up about this! LOL!

We can’t give away something we do not really have. How do we have a genuine and authentic love for people?

We must first understand God’s love for us, Lysa says, we need to LIVE LOVED and then the overflow effects all those we come in contact with.

When I haven’t spent quality time with God, I’m lacking LOVING my self fully, therefore I most often have nothing to give others.

Lysa talks about the Fullness with God, in the context of spending time with him that fills us completely up, overflowing.

“Fullness comes to us when we remember to be with Him before going out to serve Him.”-Uninvited

Let this statement rock your socks off. Let this sink into your GUT! God wants you to Thrive. He wants you to LIVE LOVED.

“God’s love isn’t based on me. It’s simply placed on me. And it’s the place from which I should live…LOVED.” -Uninvited

So our first way to UNCOVER our “WONDER WOMAN STRENGTH” is to trade our too HIGH EXPECTATIONAL EMOTIONS for realistic viewpoints and consideration and secondly, live from a FULL PLACE of LOVe from God. The more we get this, the more peace we have. I don’t know about you, but I need more peace.

I’m Excited to do a fun series in the MONTH of MAY that I believe has the POTENTIAL to Inspire women to Live Loved. In May I want to encourage you to find time to practice LOVING YOURSELF, God know’s I need this.

You may be thinking, I’m not sure this is going to be fun! It will be fun, but I also think it will be difficult too. We need to take a hard look at our;

NEGATIVE SELF-TALK- JUDGEMENT OF OTHERS – UNREALISTIC EXPECTATIONS – DISCOURAGING RELATIONSHIPS 

We need to find HEALING -AUTHENTIC JOY – HEALTHY SELF-TALK – LIFE BREATHING RELATIONSHIPS-

Lysa Terkeurst say’s in her book, Uninvited a profound statement that I can’t shake and is helping me something fierce! She discusses what it looks like to be in the company of a Woman who LIVES LOVED.

“No, the fullness of God is tucked into the sacred places within them The full taking in of God is their soul oxygen. It’s not that they don’t need people. They do. God created them for community. But the way they love is from a full place, not from an empty desperation. As we talked about in the last chapter, they are living loved.”

Purchase the book UNINVITED  by Lysa and Study along with me as we learn more tools to LIVE LOVED!
