When I started The Yay Project, it was a pure act of faith. I felt God say to do it, and start in August 2019, so I did. I’d never written about faith before, and my heart was all sorts of raw, but each day I went before God, asked him to lead, and wrote. It’s been a wonderful nearly two years! I’m thankful for community and meeting so many new friends - thank you for being a part of this journey. May we be able to continue growing together. Perhaps most of all, I’m so thankf

Raise your hand if you like waiting? As I sit here to pray and process today, I think of my past two years and how there's been a lot of waiting... but wow has there also been a lot of fruit. Not necessarily fruit in the sense of worldly accomplishments (though there's been some of this, all glory to God). But fruit in how God has cleaned up my character and taught me to joy of pursuing him, obeying him, being like him. Yesterday, I had one of my favourite day dates with God.
I love thinking about God’s mightiness. Sometimes it can seem intimidating (OT!). But we can KNOW 100% that we are safe in God’s love for he works for the good of those who love him. And we know that God causes everything to work together[a] for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them. (Romans 8:28) As I was praying, I felt God show me an image that reflected my heart. I was walking in front of God’s throne, just craving to be bowed bef
Sometimes God gives me pep talks. Same for you? I love them because I need them - and seriously how merciful is God that he takes the time to encourage us and help us get right. HE is God and he loves us and knows what he’s doing. This pep talk was from a few weeks ago but always a good reminder, I think. It's not that we complain all day, everyday but we can worry too much about things that are safe in God’s hands. God’s got us, amen? Let’s focus on what he actually wants us
For the deepest satisfaction and joy, there’s nothing like following the Holy Spirit, amen? After working another late night, this morning I was trying to quiet my heart before God / wake up, and felt myself asking: “Who am I to you, God?” I know, but I guess I wanted to be reminded. (Maybe you will too ❤️) “I am God Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, and because of Jesus Christ, I am yours forever. And you are mine. When you feel weary, reach out. Think of me. I will come
Some seasons of waiting are long. Sometimes I feel like 99% of my posts are about waiting but that’s the season I’m in… and I’m learning to enjoy it. Not in my own strength though, but in seeking God and asking him to please give me the strength and wisdom to not just survive but thrive in this season. Because.
