Learning the Beauty in Less being More: Part 1

I am truly learning and embracing the joy of ‘less is more.’ As I intentionally take the time to build the life that I imagine for myself by His prompting, I am living the truth that I can create without hustle. I can be a success without embracing the lie that I need to be stressed to do it. I don’t have to do ‘it’ the way everyone has shouted that ‘it’ needs to be done. The wisdom is to perform for an audience of ONE, Christ Jesus, and to learn how to be better than the person you were the day before. I have no need to keep up with the Jones…Neither do you!

It is our honor and privilege to discover the path He has designed for us and to walk them by faith in His hands. Our hands and knees may get messy along the way since the path is …

Part of growing is seeing where we have made our mistakes, where we could have done better, and applying that knowledge to future acts for improvement. When we pause to assess our current places, we are better equipped …

Matters of the Heart

Greeting Soup Seekers! It has indeed been some what of a long, unintended, hiatus from blogging this week, and I hope that such a long period of time will not pass like this again. As mentioned in my very first blog that I ever posted here, I made it clear that this blog is about my journey. Thus far I have taken very great steps, in my own estimation into further discovering my creative writing and visual arts. But I also mentioned that this journey of mine, that I have invited you along on, is also about my spiritual growth and understanding. Who am I in the heart of Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ) and Who is He in my heart? Novaturient: Desiring or seeking powerful change in one’s life, behavior or situation.” I want not to take up too much time here as I am still in the healing process from tumbling through some rough spiritual terrain of necessary change. Just a bit of background about my walk in faith. I gave my life to …
