You can find art inside art. You can find anything you're looking for in your life on this earth; - materialism, which satisfies your body. What about your heart? What about your soul? You can't buy joy, you can't buy happiness, neither can you buy peace. It's just not a material thing which you can put in your heart to fill you and make you feel satisfied. You can find yourself in God if you open your heart to Him. He's the only One who really knows what you need; more than that: what you really want!✨ “Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.”
Psalm 34:8 NIV #psalms#truejoy#goodness#jesus#love#art#photography#huntingtonbeach#california#usa#faith
I often picture going after your goals and dreams as a race. You are at the start line, finish line in sight, track laid out before you, and the gun goes off and your legs are running but you are going nowhere. What happened? You forgot to look behind you to make sure nothing or no one was holding onto the back of your shirt keeping you stuck in place. Are you struggling to move forward to reach your goals? What fears, doubts, and beliefs are you holding onto that may be holding you back? Take today to write them down, acknowledge them and then replace them with the truth and positive affirmations. Once you realize what is holding you back, nothing can stop you from moving forward. .
True joy isn't found in things, what comes today and is gone tomorrow but something much greater and bigger than this mere existence - true joy is only found when looking Heavenward. #quoteoftheday#truejoy#todayichoosejoy
I'm so grateful for this lady right up there👆🏻for providing me a wonderful opportunity to serve others. I had a wonderful time spent amongst fellow hairdressers and make-up artists this morning at a women and children's shelter. We were able to share our love, time and talents with these women by providing them with some fun and fresh new haircuts and sassy styles. I loved seeing their faces light up when they finally got to see truly how beautiful they are. Such a rewarding experience. #serveothers#truejoy#hairdresserslife#jamiweighthairdesign#sharethelove#strengtheningwomen#lovegodloveothers
Yes! Yes! Lord Yes! We cannot control others, their actions, or really life and what it brings. But we can control our hearts, our minds and protect our spirit. Let it go! There is noting more beautiful and more attractive than pure joy and peace from within! #peace#innerpeace#joy#truejoy#letitgo#celebratewhatisgood
I read Elisabeth Kubler- Ross's final work in 2005 as she was dying. The profound truth in this statement overcomes me, perhaps even more so than it did 12 years ago.
Birth, the transition into this life is sacred and widely regarded as so. I believe death is equally sacred, yet as a society we tend to turn away, likely in fear.
As death has become an intimate part of my life, I have found that the underlying fear is no longer a part of me. I look forward to the end. Because really it is just a new beginning.
Day 22/30: "And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.” Revelation 21:4 NKJV
I'm two days behind schedule with the #30daysofbiblelettering challenge. If it was the "old me" I would've just thrown in the towel. I used to be a perfectionist who almost never got anything done because whenever something went awry, I'd either quit in the middle or go back to start.
For the past few years, however, as I get to embrace who I am in the eyes of my Creator, I've been learning to let go of perfectionism and the fear of failure. And I believe there's no other promise here on earth that can give as much assurance as Revelation 21:4.
More than our physical eyes, the eyes of our heart can help us see our happy place WITH God, not away from Him. When we allow Him to, God's grace will take us there. 💞
Believe. Be. Live! 🙌
Motivation can be challenging to maintain when going out after your dreams. There will always be bumps in the road that leave you with doubts and may make you feel defeated. My favorite way to find encouragement and motivation is to step away from my stuff and be someone else's cheerleader! By inspiring and encouraging others, you will inevitably motivate yourself to get back on the horse and ride toward your goals. Next time you are feeling a little defeated, find a friend that either had something great happen to them and celebrate with them or find someone that needs encouragement to keep going. Be their cheerleader and you will find yourself waving those pom-poms in your direction too! #truejoy#truejoycoaching#liveyourbestlife#motivateinspireencourage#keepgoing#dontquit#dreambig#lifecoach#entrepreneur
Have you stopped to smell the roses (or peonies) today?! Spring is here 🌸🌺💐 conjure joy today - break past that stubborn "why should I?" And find a moment. You deserve it 🌞 #joy#truejoy#soulliving#summerthrowback
"Look there she goes that girl is so peculiar
I wonder if she's feeling well
With a dreamy, far-off look
And her nose stuck in a book
What a puzzle to the rest of us is Belle..." Beauty and the Beast songs stuck in my head as I work today. And I don't mind a bit...thank the Lord there is more to live for than just the everyday routine! We have purpose, and that makes life amazing!
