Keeping your babies in church from a young age is so important. In order for them to grow in their spiritual walk with the Lord, they need to be surrounded by those who seek Him. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Many of you know that I do not have children. (I have tons of farm animals and a gorgeous nephew)! Watching Turner grow up in church and slowly start to understand what faith is makes me the happiest girl on this planet because I know he is going to need God in his future. He is going to need to lean on Him during the challenging and hard times in his life. He won't be able to do it on his own. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I know a lot of kids are tired after having a long hard week of school, homework, sports.. etc.. and it is hard to get them to church on Wednesdays or Sunday nights for youth, in Turner's case Sunday school. Here's what we must remember; Hebrews 12:11 "No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ God tells us to push ourselves and to go above and beyond to be more like Jesus. Being disciplined is so important when it comes to creating a strong Christian believer. Making yourself get up for church, pushing yourself to read the Bible out loud to your babies before bed. These are the things that will make all of the difference. I know we all want to give our family members, spouses, and children the best lives. Friends, the best way to do that is to introduce them to Jesus Christ. For the little ones, introduce them at a young age and let them grow up knowing that they are never alone and they always have someone watching over them. .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As always, please message me with any questions you may have! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💻: www.thegraciousblonde.com⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #thegraciousblonde #spreadthelordslove #Heispowerful #thereispowerinthenameofjesus #blog #Jesus #God #missionwork #keephimfirst #theholybible #wordsofwisdom #speakyourheart #followGodsplan #teachthemyoung #Youngfollowersofgod

And if the evil and the lost comes to me, I will not be shaken. Instead, I will bring them with me. I will share Your words. I will share the light You have given me. Give me the power Oh Lord to influence the darkness that surrounds other people who are hopeless. Let me take them to You and stop me from being taken by them. You are the most powerful.

letting.his.light.shine. Just a little encouragement for your day! 
Fear not [there is nothing

Just a little encouragement for your day! Fear not [there is nothing to fear], for I am with you; do not look around you in terror and be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen and harden you to difficulties, yes, I will help you; yes, I will hold you up and retain you with My [victorious] right hand of righteousness and justice. - Isaiah 41:10 AMP 🙌🏻 • If there is something we are supposed to be doing, the Lord will give us the ability to do it. He will not lead us into a situation and then leave us there to face it alone in our own weak, human power. No, because as Isaiah 41:10 reminds us, He is with us. He is our great God; He will harden us to difficulties, help us, and uphold us with His hands of victory. -Joyce Meyer • I needed to read this today, and maybe you did too. God is in this with us! He is our helper & our strength! I have the ability to do all the things He has entrusted me to do! And I will do them well! • And so will you! 🙌🏻👏🙌🏻 • 💜, Jen #lettinghislightshine

The Lord works in mysterious ways. We have all heard that line once or twice before… in my case.. A LOT. Sometimes it's hard to just take that and be at peace with it. When our lives are effected and our hearts are cut open by things we continuously don't understand, it is so easy to feel like God is not real. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Why did God take someone I love from me? Why does God allow me to go through such terrible financial issues? Why am I sick? We can do all we are supposed to do and live the best way we know how… but it isn't going to stop bad things from happening to us or the ones we love. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . Here is the silver lining in it all. The plan that God has for you and the people you love, is far more than you could ever fathom. We will never understand these trials God puts us through until we reach Heaven. No-one will understand what their exact purpose was, or if they fulfilled it, until they stand in-front of God himself and hear him speak the words.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . I know it's hard not to over analyze things. For me, I am always thinking about everything 1,000,000 times deeper than I should. But we have to understand … that is what faith is. Understanding that God does have a plan…a plan to make us prosper in all area of our lives and never to harm us. We have to believe without seeing or understanding sometimes.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Take the things that you don't understand and turn them into talks with God. Ask Him to give you peace and clarity. Instead of running from God, confront Him about your mind. Confront him about what keeps you up at night. Confront Him and I promise, He will give you an understanding that you have never had before. He is there for us. All we have to do is look up and realize. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💻: www.thegraciousblonde.com⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📸: @blueedgevideography⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #thegraciousblonde #spreadthelordslove #Heispowerful #thereispowerinthenameofjesus #blog #Jesus #God #missionwork #keephimfirst #theholybible #wordsofwisdom #speakyourheart #followGodsplan

"The cross has made you flawless." ✝️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Did you know that? We spend so much time wishing we had things that we don't and wishing we could look or be a certain way. Well guess what...YOU ARE FLAWLESS. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Let me break it down.. God took all of your shame and wiped all of your sins clean when He sent Jesus to die on that cross. We are sinners and He knows that we are not perfect, but HE promises us that we are FORGIVEN because of that cross. We are perfect in His eyes no matter what we have done or been through. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Comparing ourselves to one another is such a common thing in our society. I want all of you to remember that He made us on purpose and for a purpose. Each of our faces are different because He wanted us to be special in different ways. Our fingerprints all have different designs because we are wonderfully made by a good and gracious GOD. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The next time you look in the mirror and feel disappointed or like you are not enough, say this sentence to yourself, "The cross has made me flawless." I hope that you will start to realize that you are perfect and wonderful in your own, special way. There is no right or wrong look. There is only God's creations, and they are all perfect.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As always, please message me with any questions you may have! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💻: www.thegraciousblonde.com⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📸: @blueedgevideography⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #thegraciousblonde #spreadthelordslove #Heispowerful #thereispowerinthenameofjesus #blog #Jesus #God #missionwork #keephimfirst #theholybible #wordsofwisdom #speakyourheart #followGodsplan

Hard times are bound to happen. It's life… we all experience lows. Here is the thing, when you hit a "low" in life, it's okay to be sad, depressed, and disconnected for a while… but it's not okay to stay there. Seeking help is one of the main things that can save you from your "lows." When I say seek help, I mean several things:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 1. Seek God more than you ever have. Even when you feel like your words are just dissolving in thin air and never reaching Him, He is listening. When you are mad, seek Him. When you are sad, seek Him. When you don't understand why life is going the way it is, seek Him. Seeking Him through prayer is very important; however, seeking answers through His word is EQUALLY as important. His word is a roadmap to life. When we get lost… sometimes all it takes is diving into His word to find peace and answers. If you feel like He is not communicating with you.. seek Him even more. Read the words He asked us to live by. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 2. Seek wise counsel. It is hard to understand how the words of the bible can help you when you are caught up in the middle of your problems. Seeking someone to point out the things that are less obvious to you at that time is highly important.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 3. Watch what environments you are exposing yourself to. Make sure the people you surround yourself with are healthy for your soul. Make sure the places you are going are healthy for your soul. Make sure the words you are exposing yourself to are uplifting and healthy for your soul. .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As always, please message me with any questions you may have! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💻: www.thegraciousblonde.com⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📸: @blueedgevideography⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #thegraciousblonde #spreadthelordslove #Heispowerful #thereispowerinthenameofjesus #blog #Jesus #God #missionwork #keephimfirst #theholybible #wordsofwisdom #speakyourheart #followGodsplan #seekwisecounsel #depression #hittinglows #livehealthy #goodforyoursoul #freshstart

thegraciousblonde. Time is a precious thing, and it’s something we never have enough of.

Time is a precious thing, and it’s something we never have enough of. Something I have been focusing on and praying a lot about lately is being intentional. Being intentional with time and being intentional with letting people know I care. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • • • It’s so easy getting caught up in daily activities and daily distractions from the devil. I have been trying to take my nephew Turner to the “punkin patch” since the beginning of October, and yesterday we finally made it. The devil distracts us from spending time with the people that need us most and today was confirmation of that. After spending the entire day with my little nugget, he looked at my on our way home and said to me, “Aunt Wizzie, I had so much fun with you, and I love you very much. You is my bestest friend!”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • • • Now if that doesn’t melt your heart... just when I was thinking about everything I didn’t accomplish on my Monday to do list because I chose to spend time with my nephew, God said, “see I told you”, and He used Turner to remind me. Remember Gods reward is far better that what you have planned. Friends, I challenge you to start being intentional with not only your time but loving those that need you most in their life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • • • 💻: www.thegraciousblonde.com⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📸: @blueedgevideography⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • • • #thegraciousblonde #spreadthelordslove #Heispowerful #thereispowerinthenameofjesus #blog #Jesus #God #missionwork #keephimfirst #theholybible #wordsofwisdom #speakyourheart #followGodsplan

Happy Thursday friends! I hope all of you have had a great week! I get asked all of the time what type of bible I use and where I suggest to start reading. Those are both questions that have tons of answers with none being right or wrong. So here goes my answer and my best suggestions. Some people recommend the KJV version of the bible, and some recommend the NIV study bible, both being great choices. Some will say to start in Genesis and some will say to start in Matthew, some will say to read a Psalm and a Proverb a day. Some will say read a little of several books at a time. The good thing is there is no right or wrong answer, but here is my suggestion. I prefer a NIV study bible for beginners and advanced bible readers. The reason being a study bible has foot notes of the bible verses broken down to help you understand better. I prefer to start reading in Matthew, then Mark, Luke, and John. These books will give you a good understanding of who Jesus is and what his ministry (mission field) looks like. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Here are a few steps that I have found helpful for me as far as reading and understanding the bible.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 1- I prefer to read an entire book at the time.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 2- I study the entire background (key people, who wrote it, and why it was written) FIRST ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 3- I read a few verses at a time and then paraphrase it into my own words in a notebook.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 4- I cross reference. (I look up different verses in the bible that relate to the verse that I am reading.) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 5. Lastly, I not only think about how I can apply it to my life, but I pray and ask God how He would like me to apply it to my daily life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I hope this helps you guys, and remember please reach out with any questions you may have. I am always here to help any way I can! .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💻: www.thegraciousblonde.com⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📸: @blueedgevideography⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #thegraciousblonde #spreadthelordslove #Heispowerful #thereispowerinthenameofjesus #blog #Jesus #God #missionwork #keephimfirst #theholybible #wordsofwisdom #speakyourheart #followGodsplan

Patience. Something I have none of at all. Something I struggle with so much and God steadily puts things in my life to make me have more of it. God has a funny sense of humor because if any of y’all know the man He created just for me, he makes me late everywhere I go. I absolutely have a small panic attack when I know I am going to be late…. but not Hampton Langston. This is just one small example, I have been constantly reminded of in my life lately to be patient and let God. We are so caught up in our own timelines we have created for our lives.. we want everything right now and don't understand why God doesn't give it to us. It is a hard concept to grasp.. but once you realize that God's plan for your life is far more prosperous than your own plans, patience begins to happen naturally. It takes a whole lot of faith and a whole lot of trust in the Lord. Do this with me this week, ask God when you pray to Him to give you the patience it takes to follow his plan for your life instead of your own. Pray that you will watch the blessings flow through your life like never before because your faith and trust are built so strong in Him alone. Proverbs 3:5 "Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding . . .

Sometimes when I need to focus my thoughts and mind, I will sit down and write out scripture. Today I meditated on one of my favorite passages, Psalm 18 . . . I love this chapter because it is all about what God will do to rescue his beloved. It’s action-packed. He is not timid when it comes to coming to the aid of his children. He really loves us so much! . . . #GodCares #hewillrescueyouandme #heismighty #heispowerful #Provider #MyRescue #Deliverer #focusyourmind #captureyourthoughts #fightback #scripture #faith #hope #love #psalm18 #LoveIsAVerb #action

How often do you get told to be patient or that Gods timing is best? How often do you catch yourself waiting past (your time frame) and starting to question God instead of waiting on his? Why me God? Why are you doing this to me? Why did you choose me to face this struggle? Why did you take my mom from me at such a young age? Why did you choose me to have a miscarriage? Why did you choose me to loose my job? Why did you choose my sister to go through life struggling every day to even put food on the table. Why did you choose my Daddy to get cancer and take him away from me at age 48? Why me God, why me? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • • • Whether the struggle is big or small we still question God. It is always so easy to question God instead of putting our trust in Him. Sometimes we never understand why God chose us to go through our hard times, but I promise you He knows. I promise you He has a beautiful plan for every struggle you go through. After all we are God’s masterpiece, and He paints a little more of our story each day!!! • • • Hebrews 13:5 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • • • Shirt: @altardstate⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📸: @Blueedgevideography⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • • •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #thegraciousblonde #spreadthelordslove #Heispowerful #thereispowerinthenameofjesus #blog #Jesus #God #missionwork #keephimfirst #theholybible #wordsofwisdom #speakyourheart #followGodsplan #Godstiming

Expectations vs. Reality. 😂 My life is a mess. It isn't perfect. But I learned to be grateful and be happy for whatever is happening to me. I learned to rewire my mind to see the good in everything. Turning jealousy into happiness is one of them. It was hard but it removed hatred and negative vibes in my heart. Sometimes we see from others what we dont have but have always wanted because we are next in line. Trust the Lord. Trust His plans. All the pain will be worth it. 🙏💙 , , , , , #expectationsvsreality #mommydiary #humility #gratitude #humble #TrusttheLord #Heispowerful #empowerment #motivation #happiness #familygoals #blessed #grateful #positivevibes #positivethoughts #mindfulness #awareness #Believe

It's no secret that God has been moving mountains in my life the past year. He has whispered in my ear for so long about being someone who spreads his word as far and wide as I possibly can. I want to follow the path that I know He has created for me. I want to personally thank everyone who lifts me up and supports me with my blog, mission trips and speaking endeavors. I am so proud to say that my website is up and running. On my website, you can find merchandise for sale that will help fund my mission work and projects for the Lord. As always, I will keep you updated on what I will be doing with it. I also have a form on the website for organizations to book me to speak at their events. If you are interested in hearing my heart and what I have to say for the Lord, please don't hesitate to get in touch with me about speaking at your events. I love each and everyone of you and I cannot wait to see how God moves me this next year of my life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ www.thegraciousblonde.com/contact ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #thegraciousblonde #spreadthelordslove #Heispowerful #thereispowerinthenameofjesus #blog #Jesus #God #missionwork #keephimfirst #theholybible #wordsofwisdom #speakyourheart #followGodsplan
