UPS & DOWNS

U P S & D O W N S
This summer has been full of ups and downs amidst the transition going on in our lives & living in a different city than our guy this summer. BUT, this picture denotes one of the UPS!

As I reflect on the ups and downs of this season, I’m reminded of how faithful and steady God is even when our hearts fluctuate. He has steadied my heart consistently, each and every time that I turn to Him.

I’m also comforted to know that our God is so good to use our ups and *especially* our downs to mold us, refine us, and create a story for the display of His glory & His Kingdom purposes.

Isn’t He sweet to bring purpose out of everything? The good, the bad, the ups, the downs. I don’t know what you’re facing right now…maybe it’s a season of highs, maybe it’s a season of lows, maybe it’s an ebb & flow. Here’s my advice for you: in the ups and the downs press hard into Jesus. Even when you can’t see the road ahead, trust Him, lean on Him, and allow Him to shape a story that will display His splendor & goodness. ❤️

CHAPTERS

C H A P T E R S
We so often describe different times in our lives as chapters or seasons. Sometimes we can’t see the beginning and ends of chapters clearly until we look back. However, this trip right here, has been a marker I’ve been looking towards that is acting as a page break into the next chapter of our lives.

When we left for this trip, Joy and I still lived in Waco. As we leave this trip, we’re heading back to move out of our house in Waco and head on to Tulsa!

Endings and beginnings of new chapters in our lives are full of jumbled emotions, and I am not a pro at handling it. BUT, I am so thankful to head into each and every chapter with these people.

I keep remembering that God’s plans are much better than mine, and just because they may look a little different that doesn’t mean they aren’t EXACTLY what God has always intended. We’ve got to trust Him in every single chapter of our lives, simply because HE IS TRUSTWORTHY.

Grateful to be walking out of one chapter and into another after this refreshing and memorable vacay with my favorite people in the world. ❤️
