Moving From a Weathered Mentality to Vitality

Christian graphic by Jenni Lien of The Yay Project

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 thankful to have experienced God’s faithfulness. It’s changed my life and given me an unending passion to see others go ALL IN with God and fully embrace their God-given design.

Because we can all experience God’s life-changing faithfulness, am I right? He’s always there, waiting for us to notice him, waiting to pour out.

The last six months have been busy with lots of changes. At times, I’ve felt I was swimming upstream. It’s still been a joy to share snippets from my quiet time with God. But there’s been less time to write daily, like I did when The Yay Project first started. As tough as that season was, I miss it so much. When I was so broken and tender, Netflix, vacations, distractions had no appeal - I knew they could never heal.

Maybe this current busy season had me feeling a little broken too, which is why a few days ago, during my annual birthday date with God, I felt God encourage me to slow down and change a weathered / worn mentality to vitality. Learning about God’s order for diet, exercise, sleep and so on, and of course drinking from the Source.

So for the next few months, I hope I can write (almost) daily again. Share glimpses of my walk with God, unfiltered, with context, in real time. Embrace the joys of a one day at a time “God, what do you want me to do today?” lifestyle.

If you’re reading this and want to live with new vitality, drop a ❤️ below.

Will be praying for us, that this next season will produce deep roots and lasting fruit. May we live every single day connected to our Vine, drinking up only life-giving nutrients, overflowing with love via the Holy Spirit.

God’s given us life, may we show a thirsty world where true satisfaction can be found.
