Coffee & Words: Change In Seasons

Over the weekend, I sat and watched the leaves sway back in forth in the wind, as the air began to change, and the temperature dropped(quickly changing to a feeling of fall).  As the leaves sway from one side to the other, I couldn't help but notice the pattern remained the same, only maybe picking up speed, depending on the blowing wind. 

When the season changes I am always reminded of my life;  growth, stillness,  and changes that come on this journey.  Sometimes going at full speed and other times slowing the pace, allowing for rest. 

I'm also reminded of God's faithfulness to us in all the changes that come, and how he's never changing.  His unconditional love for us, his grace is constant and sufficient in all things, the joy he brings on a daily, that peace that surpasses all understanding.  It's so evident that even though the seasons are constantly changing, we are never alone, He is always there, even in those seasons that seem a little chaotic and emotional, or those seasons that feel like you are not enough or just aren't sure how things are going to work out.  He is there to give you direction.

So as your season changes and you don't feel like you have it all figured out( it's okay).  Stop and breathe in the fresh air, and let God's grace sustain you.

Coffee & Words: In The Waiting

FINAL-0063.jpg

Do you ever feel like your life is constantly going a 100 mph and you don't feel accomplished at that high speed, and find yourself wanting more.  NEVER CONTENT

I use to feel that way until a couple of years ago when I was reminded to stop and listen.  Listen for the rest that was needed, the quiet that was non existent, the rhythm of slow that I wasn't familiar with, the lack of self knowing that needed to be birthed within, that peace that was anxiously awaiting, the God that wanted me to seek him more. 

We have to learn that there is a process in the waiting and patience is a virtue.  When God directs us and gives us discernment in our calling, we have to wait on HIS instructions.  In our waiting we have to pray, be present and rest in him daily.   

The waiting process is not always easy, because the feeling of control and over thinking can cause doubt to creep in. We have to constantly be reminded that in the waiting comes God's instructions and guidance, when he leads the way, everything is orchestrated so perfectly and peacefully.  

Trust the process, trust what God has placed in your heart, trust all that he promises you in his word, and wait on his timing.

Psalm 27:14

Wait for the Lord; Be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the Lord.

She Inspires Brunch: Mill Valley, California Part 2

As the guest arrived to The Hivery in Mill Valley , they were greeted with mimosas and welcome baskets full of goodies. Welcome cards, clipboards, water, gummy bears and a key that had the verse from Jeremiah 29:13.  Along with a cute fabric blanket from Little Bunches.

We started out with prayer and a wonderful introduction of She Inspire. I am constantly trying to put this journey into words, being constantly stretched to the core on this faith walk is so beautiful. Seriously some days I am blown away by all that God is revealing to me.  On this journey to San Francisco, God showed me that we have to be open to walking it out for him,  ladies, and not just walking it out, sometimes you will find yourself running it out. That walk becomes a run of excitement, even when you don't know how it's suppose to play out. It plays out so perfect for him..

Ashley Morgan Jackson brought some amazing encouragement and shared her story of identity. "We sometimes allow our identity to be wrapped up in what people think instead of what God thinks, and that causes us to be at a stand still in our walk with him."
