Jesus gave me a space that was safe, whether I needed to worship or curse or laugh or cry out. He brought me into a place and restored my broken identity and my warped perceptions of him. In the quiet that tried to drown me, Jesus saved me.

The Lord has truly taught me that just because you are broken doesn’t mean that you are beyond repair. The Lord is great at turning broken pieces into a masterpiece for His glory.

Faith is still a hard and undeserved journey. I still wander through seasons of struggle and weep over the grace of the lessons learned therein. But oh, how thankful I am to worship the God of the mountains and seas. The One who finds us in showers and strangers’ homes in Seattle. The One whose mercy never fails.

Juana's is inspiring to me. Honestly, if I hit enough roadblocks, I have a tendency to give up and move on to something else. But that’s not what she did.

My story is still being unveiled, moment by moment, but it’s been a journey from a state of complete brokenness to becoming whole.

Preparing for Easter

As you’re preparing for this season and engaging in the Easter egg hunts, helping prep for scrumptious lunches, and indulging in the chocolate-covered treats, I encourage you to remain focused on the reason for our celebration: Christ.

My story is one of great redemption, great loss, and hope of a great future. It’s a messy story, full of brokenness yet still laced in the Fathers deep, deep love for me.

Saint Patrick

Saint Patrick

This month, let’s remember the real reason for the holiday: a man who passionately pursued God even when it cost him dearly. He laid down his pride, his comfort, his right to be offended, and his past in order to take up the calling that Christ had on his life. He pushed past fear, refusing to let anything keep him from sharing the love of God with those who didn’t know Him.

The Lord has called me to say ‘yes’ to where He leads me. I am not sure where I’ll end up or what I shall be doing, but I have an eternal ‘yes’ in my heart. My ways led to destruction, but I have learned that His way leads to life, joy, and everlasting hope.

Identity

Identity

After you identify who God says you are, I encourage you to meditate on the list. If any of them are difficult for you to accept or believe, give that over to God. Let what He says about you wash over you, replacing who you were and those lies you’ve believed about yourself.

There is nothing more freeing than true freedom. The ability to breathe and not feel crushed at the same time is amazing. I've learned that even in times of war there is still peace.

I’ve started to shake off the labels that stick to me in exchange for one that shatters them all: HIS.I’ve spent a lot of time asking myself “How is my story going to help someone?” and, to sum it up, my story shows that God is for everyone.

I’m still learning to believe that God is enough. That I am enough. And that my identity isn’t found in what I have or haven’t done, but in who He says that I am. I am grateful for true freedom, true forgiveness that keeps no record of wrong, and for a love that never stops pursuing me.

Reflecting on the Old and Looking Ahead to the New

As the year draws to a close, it’s an invitation for reflection and anticipation. In the blink of an eye, it’s going to be 2018, complete with New Year's resolutions, gym memberships, healthy eating plans, and determinations to ‘do better’ (whatever that means). But before we move ahead to the next year, I believe it’s good to look back on this year.

Learning True Joy

I no longer have to take on the identity of others but can remain grounded in what God says. I have found that embracing my true identity in Christ is exceedingly better than any counterfeit version someone can try to place on me.
