HELLO REMINDERS

This weekend was awe-mazing!!!!
I felt totally and completely in my element! Sweet spot, if I may.
I did something that I absolutely love to do.
Something I was born to do.
I felt that I was living out my purpose.

This past Saturday and Sunday I got the chance to teach at MSM WKND. 
MSM WKND is the middle school “Sunday school” at my church, Church by the Glades.

Leading up to each service my nerves would get all riled up. The anxiety would want to eat me alive however the minute I walked up to that podium and addressed that room full of middle school students nothing else mattered. I just had to make sure those students heard the message God placed on my heart for them to hear.

A Valentine’s Day message of course!!!
The title of my teaching was JESUS IS BAE.
It was so fun to teach God’s love in a relevant way. It was so important to me to address my students in such a way that they would understand.
Using their lingo to grab their attention.
Incorporating Youtube celebrity Miranda Sings.

I’m so extremely grateful to my Middle School Director for giving me the opportunity to speak to our students.

I promise you this weekend has confirmed the dreams and plans that God has been laying upon my heart. These two days of teaching middle schoolers about God’s love has reiterated the fact that my dreams are lining up with God’s design.

Seek Him and He will give you the desires of your heart has never been more true than in this moment.
A moment of renewed excitement.
A moment of reminder…. don’t forget the promises!
A moment that shouts…. “You’re called!!!” “You have purpose!!!”

My body may be exhausted but my heart cannot stop smiling! 

God is so good! He chooses to use the broken and seemingly damaged to advance his kingdom.
I accept the call!
I am broken and for many years I have considered myself damaged, but I choose to allow God to shine through my brokenness. That He may be glorified!!!!

I pray that as I continue chasing these new dreams God is revealing to me the doors may continue opening and the opportunities presenting themselves. My prayer is that I may be on my A-game, ready to say yes when the asks arrive! Ready to glorify God with every chance I get!!!

I’m more excited than ever to see what God has in store! I encourage you to go out and chase your dreams!! Don’t let your fears or insecurities get in the way of you achieving that which you were born to do!!!

HELLO WOMEN OF THE BIBLE (WOTB)

For over a year now I’ve had this growing desire to study the women of the bible. I’ve read the SheReadsTruth.com Women in the Bible devotional series. I’ve attended bible studies at my church (Church by the Glades), which focused on women in the bible. I’ve talked about how interested I am in the women of the bible so much that friends have gifted me books and I have purchased and wish-listed additional books.

Their stories fascinate me.

Their courage inspires me.

Their faith motivates me.

Their realness still resonates loudly in our culture today.

These women knew what it was to cry out to God for the deepest desires of their heart. They knew, like many women today, what it feels like to WAIT, to lean on God and not their own understanding.

Some of my favorite women are Sarah, Ruth, Esther, and the woman with the bleeding disorder. Each of these stories has spoken to my heart in one-way or another.

I am so excited to officially begin this journey of an in-depth study of every woman in the bible in chronological order. The assignment feels bigger than anything I’ve ever done before. I know that by focusing on one to two women a month this project will take a few years to complete. I look forward to the extra time in God’s word.

I realize that I am far from a bible scholar or expert. I’m simply an average girl trying to seek my King. My plan is to read the scripture with new eyes. I will be using different resources to help me understand the richness of each story.

I am so excited for what God has planned for me to learn. What secrets will be uncovered?!?

The best part of this new venture is that I will get to share all of my “findings” with YOU!!!! I look forward to connecting with you and reading how God has moved in your life through SUPERSTARNAT.COM.

Get ready and join me every Friday for a new installment of the WOTB Series. I pray that as God uses these women to heal, mold, and strengthen my heart yours may also be blessed in supernatural ways.

January is all about Eve. So come back next week for Hello Eve Part I…
