Always Something to Learn

Too many times I have had the mindset, that I don't have anything to learn; that I already know everything. 

Thankfully the Lord quickly corrects my wrong thinking and reminds me of how little I know and how much He has to teach me. He reminds me of my need for Him and the Eucharist. I am reminded that this isn't all about me. 

Even though lessons in humility are painful, I am thankful for them. I am thankful for the Lords guidance. I am thankful for His unfailing love. I am thankful for His Divine Mercy. I am thankful that even though I don't deserve it, He paid the price for my sins so He can spend eternity with me. I am thankful that I am His.

You Are Beautiful!


"If you don't believe God thinks you're beautiful, you'll never believe it when a guy tells you you're beautiful."

One of my biggest struggles is thinking a guy will solve my problems. That a guy will satisfy my hearts deepest desires. The temptation of looking to guys for validation, purpose and fulfillment is something I struggle with and I'm sure most of you can relate. 

The reality is that the more we look to guys to satisfy us, the more empty and discontent we will be. The enemy's lies are deceiving, we must take extreme precaution discerning what is truth from God and what is a lie from satan. 

Contrary to what society tells us, God is the only one who can fulfill us, and it is crucial that we look to God for our joy, our purpose, and our worth. 

God Bless ladies! 

If you knew...

If you knew... 

My pain.
My tears.
My broken heart.
My low self esteem.
My trauma.
My sadness. 
My abandonment.

Would you have drowned me? I was sufficating. But, the Lord provided an oxygen mask. Filled me with the strength I needed to swim back up to the surface... 

Now I'm healing. Still coughing up the water in my lungs. My broken heart is being pieced back together. 

I'm learning to trust again. I'm learning how to decipher whether the endless lies are true or false...

I am more me, than I have ever been. I have learned so much. I am so much stronger. But, I still wonder... if you knew?

Enjoy the Little Things

I don't know where you are or what you are doing today, but I really encourage you to take a moment and notice the little things. 

Maybe notice the little, purple flowers on the side of the road. Notice how the lake water reflects the blue sky. Listen to the kids laughing and playing. Feel the warmth of the sun on your skin or the sound of the rain drops. 

We often times overlook all of the little things. I want to encourage you to notice and appreciate them today. :)

Comment below and let me know what little things you notice today?
