battling the flu and watching mafia documentaries. It’s a love/hate day.
Sitting at an abandoned hotel with the hustle and bustle of the busy interstate roaring behind me. It’s Saturday and I’m not at the office- I’ve clocked out for the weekend.
How often do we really clock out of this commercial based world? Out of shopping, social media, television, internet... out of anything that is demanding? It de- mans us. We don’t know who we are anymore.
 Stopping can be scary. I work 3 jobs and when I have any amount of  downtime- I am at an utter loss do what to do with myself. And I know why. It’s because I don’t know what to do with something I never have- I have to stay busy. ADD doesn’t help either. I usually wind up on here scrolling through pointless feeds about people I don’t even know, wishing I could be as crafty and creative as they are, which sucks the inspiration right out of me. Or I play logic puzzles. Or I end up going to sleep.
We were made to be fully satisfied in every aspect of our lives through God. It’s taken me a long time to fully understand that. I get bored quite easily. Social interactions and events don’t amuse me. I can every art supply available at my fingertips but can lack any and all inspiration if I don’t stay infused by the Holy Spirit.
I read a biography once of a poor man who traveled relentlessly all the time with his family. Going from town to town trying to earn money through services so he could provide for his family. Even though he was worn out night after night, EVERY DAY he set up a corner in the room where he put a curtain and from 2-4 in the morning is when he would spend devoted time to the Lord. He didn’t “find” time when it was convenient- he made time. He made time because it was imperative to his life to stay in the Spirit.
That is demand we should have on our life. That is the “de-manning” that we need. We need less of us, less man and more Spirit. But it’s not gonna happen by sheer chance. It’s a daily disciplined decision.
If your name ain’t in it, it ain’t your business. 🤚🏻
“But now thus says the Lord,
he who created you, O Jacob,
he who formed you, O Israel:
“Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by name, you are mine.
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you;
when you walk through fire you shall not be burned,
and the flame shall not consume you.
For I am the Lord your God,
the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.
I give Egypt as your ransom,
Cush and Seba in exchange for you.
Because you are #precious in my eyes,
and honored, and I love you,
I give men in return for you,
peoples in exchange for your life.
Fear not, for I am with you;
I will bring your offspring from the east,
and from the west I will gather you.” -#Isaiah 43.

(ESV) “Be #strong and #courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.”
Then Moses summoned Joshua and said to him in the sight of all Israel, “Be strong and courageous, for you shall go with this people into the land that the Lord has sworn to their fathers to give them, and you shall put them in possession of it. It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.” -#Deuteronomy 31:6-8.
I can’t remember who posted this @bethelmusic song in their IG stories but I am so GLAD they did because I needed it 🙌🏻🙌🏻.

So I have these bunch of #art #gallery #wall #prints that are GORGEOUS but... I don’t want them. Any takers? You’ll only have to pay for shipping. They’re 8.5x11” on super quality cardstock and most of them have some type of foiling on them. DM me if you’re interested 😃
spending an hour everyday taking the students #swimming this week. Oh boy.
I sing this quite often- like once a week at least. (merely adding to the weirdness) Anyone else remember this? I can’t be the only one. 😝 my students didn’t believe this was real song until they saw it on YouTube so THEREFORE it MUST be true. They still think I’m bonkers though 🤪 #heyarnold #ratsthemusical
#porthole: a circular #window used to admit light and air in.
(ESV) “No one after lighting a lamp puts it in a cellar or under a basket, but on a stand, so that those who enter may see the light. Your eye is the lamp of your body. When your eye is healthy, your whole body is full of light, but when it is bad, your body is full of darkness. Therefore be careful lest the light in you be darkness. If then your whole body is full of light, having no part dark, it will be wholly bright, as when a lamp with its rays gives you #light.” (#Luke 11:33-36).
Just like a porthole in a submarine vessel, as are our eyes (mind). We either allow light or darkness- there is no in between. We resemble what we revere- either for ruin or for restoration. If we focus on negativity and destruction then that is what we become ourselves which impacts others. If we focus on wholesome doctrine (truth, love, peace, etc) then we that is what we become which also impacts others. Light radiates inwards and outwards. If we are spiritually unhealthy then that is what we emit. That is what people see and absorb. We absorb way more than we realize as do we emit way more than realize. Be careful what you take in so you can be careful what you put out ✨
