Come And Be Refreshed.

Come to me this day in whatever state you are. You don’t have to finish up what you’re doing, drop everything and come. Bring your case to me, let’s talk. I see you trying to keep yourself occupied so you won’t have to face how you deeply feel but I know your needs, I want to restore you to the position I had in mind when I created you. You no longer have to stand behind the weight of your burdens.

My child, I’m not the God your eyes see when you’re lost or hurting. The God you learned about through your own experiences, embedded thoughts, and beliefs or from the world. You’ve placed me in a box for too long and this same box is hindering you and preventing me from showing out.

Listen attentively; you’re not in trouble for straying. I expect you to stray, you’re human, and this world is wired with distractions of all kinds. But don’t feel guilty or stay away fearing I’m upset with you, I await you with open arms and clean robe. You’re not used to this kind of love and life. It’s strange to you, which, can leave you feeling unworthy. But you are precious to me and I take pleasure in all I do for you.

You don’t have to hide behind clothes you’ve made for yourself; YOUR stone thoughts, ideas, ways, beliefs. I designed you to be naked and unashamed before me, for us to fellowship that way. Your clothes, your walls are separating us, drop them so we can talk, please. My thoughts about you are nothing short of beauty, I want to instill them into your heart and strengthen you on your journey. Remember, the enemy prowls around looking for who he can devour, and I say it’s NOT you, I extend my hand to you this day, take it, you don’t have to be scared. I won’t be angry.

Hello, my name is Stephanie! It is my desire for souls to know Jesus personally; To be freed, uplifted, affirmed, and healed through our Savior. Know that you are loved so much! You have so much worth! You ’belong’ even if the world rejects and sees you as nothing! Despite what people around you, or even what your thoughts say about who you are, Jesus's truth is all that matters, and you are precious to him! Here is a bit of my story! I've been oppressed and ’held captive’ in my own mind for many years! I've struggled with depression for over 10 years. I had low self-esteem, not knowing my own worth. I chased after love, affirmation, attention, and a need to feel wanted- in relationships, to finding fulfillment in things. I didn't know how to love myself or how to receive love! I was sad most of the time to the point where I contemplated suicide twice. Deep inside, I felt a little girl full of joy, harmony, and peace who wanted freedom, and to live a fulfilled life; she was trapped inside. In late 2014 Jesus literally called out to me... and told me I would be okay. I committed my life to him in 2016. Since then, so much has happened! I've been finding shelter under his wings, and my mind is continually being renewed by his truth spoken to and about me. I have found and is still amazed by his perfect, unconditional love for me that follows me daily. I have found a secured relationship that attends to every area of my life. My journey started out rough, but it is BEAUTIFUL! It gets rocky and uncomfortable at times, but it is one filled with lessons, wonder, and crazy peace! It's apart of our walk. I am still healing (I view it as a life long process) some days I take a step forward only to take two backward but I now know to not depend on my strength even during healing as I am never alone. There are also many that I am unlearning and detoxing from my spirit that I grew up learning about. I have opened myself to allowing God to use me as I am, as an outlet to reach his precious ones. The purpose of my blog is to encourage a sincere and intentional relationship with Jesus! To help strengthen our faith and walk in him. To heal, uplift, and remind women of who God says we are. To walk in his identity- in hopes that you will know without a doubt that you matter much more than you can understand! I openly share my testimonies and personal experiences. I mean, it's a bit easier to speak and share from experiences. I firmly believe you will be blessed! Find yourself, find your path, and embark on this beautiful journey of life resting in God. Love, it's perfectly okay to be authentic- about where you are in every area of your life- in a world that forces us to mask our emotions and ’put the best forward, so people can ”see and think” we’ve got it all together.’ It's okay to NOT have it all together. Be true to yourself; this is an important step in being completely honest with our Lord.
