Has It Ever Cost You?

Have you ever come to a point in your walk with God where the decision that you knew the Holy Spirit was pointing you towards was the unpopular decision?

Have you ever gotten to a point where it wasn't about what you wanted but about being with God all the way?

Has there ever been a point, a moment in your journey with the Lord, where you made a choice that costed you just about everything or something profoundly important to you?

If you haven't, then this post isn't for you. If you have, then please continue to read on.

You’ve Gotta Give Some to Yourself

“Abigail, you need to forgive yourself.”

I began realizing that it wasn't just in my head, and I started asking:

"How do I forgive myself? What is it that I need to forgive myself for?"

I've come to realize that the reason why I find it easier to forgive others but struggle to forgive myself is due to the standard in which I hold myself to, knowing my potential in contrast to my choices, and trusting myself.

It is in our imperfections that our true beauty and strength lies.

Would You Choose to Love Someone Who'd Never Choose You?

If you knew that no matter how long you love someone, (what you do for them, how many times you tell them that you love them,) that they would never choose you and would never love you, would you continue to love them for eternity? Would you want to sacrifice your time and energy for those who would never accept you? Would you continue to pursue someone who you knew, come rain or shine, they would never say yes to you?

[…]if someone says no to us, we reject them. Some of us put up a good fight, but we stop eventually because we weren't as crucial to the one we wanted to be accepted by as we hoped. This is our nature.

Jesus is the anomaly of us. He knew while he was hanging on that cross that many will reject his sacrifice and love. Y'all, God knew that not everyone would say yes to Jesus, but he chooses to love regardless of it.

[…]Saying, "Hey Jesus, I'm with you," is to say, "even if no person says yes to me Lord, I want to keep pursuing your children with eyes like yours, heart like the one you have, and acceptance that has no prerequisites."

I Am Sorry

Healing is one of the hardest journeys I've ever had to go on, and it doesn't stop when the tears end.[…]

I've never exposed myself this much before this season of my life and these past 8 months, and it isn't easy. However, this adventure has been the most humbling and strengthen experience of my life. […]

it wasn't until I had said my goodbyes, driven 5 minutes away from camp, and played the beautiful song one camper dedicated to the experience, that I was able to let myself cry. […]

it is when you stop fighting the storm that you can sit in the eye of the hurricane and make it to the end so that you may witness the beautiful rainbow God has designed.

Clarity: It's All About the Relationship

So this is how it all happened: I was listening to a sermon by Judah Smith. By now, I'm pretty sure we've all come to the realization that I enjoy listening to Judah! (Go Church Home!) I had finished a two-hour workout, dinner with my best friend, and a lady chat, when I was heading home, and God said, listen to some sermons young lady. You know me, I said, "Aye Captain (cue SpongeBob)."

I had yet finished the sermon when I kept hearing the phrase, "die to self," in my mind repeatedly. (I think a part of it is because I know that showers are holy places and Holy Spirit speaks in the shower (and everywhere else. Okay, I'm confusing us, let me get back to this post.) I started asking, what does that mean? Where does it come from? Why do we say that as believers so often, and what does God mean by it? How do we do it? Is it something for just our relationship with Christ, or does it integrate into all of our relationships? How do we know we're doing it?

My question for myself (hopefully we all ask ourselves this) moving forward is: how am I loving my brother or sister in this? How am I dying to myself, choosing God's ways through what the Holy Spirit is telling me in this situation? Does Scripture match up with what I believe the Holy Spirit is guiding me to?
