Ryan and I are so excited to announce our latest adventure, our very own fixer upper! This has been a dream of ours since we first called Austin home. Because the housing market is so competitive and in such high demand, we quickly realized that if we wanted the opportunity to truly make a house our own, we would have to buy a home that needed to be renovated. This hasn't been a quick or easy journey, but seeing how God has worked through this entire process has been so real and so wonderful.
With a new year underway, I have been contemplating what my goals and plans for this year will be. I have been taking time to think about what kind of content I want to create on my little corner of the web this year, what direction I want to take, how I can make a positive impact in the lives of others, and my other personal goals. What keeps coming to mind, though, and what I feel the Lord keeps laying on my heart more than anything else are these words:
"Do not be afraid."
We can find this comforting phrase written throughout the Bible, such as in Deuteronomy 31:6-8 and Jeremiah 1:8, and I feel like the Lord has been speaking these words to me over and over to be my
words of intention for 2019.
It might not appear this way based on what you see in all of those perfect little squares on your screen, but I have come to realize that I struggle with fear on a daily basis; fear of being true to myself that leads me to compare myself to others, fear of failure that keeps me from pursuing personal goals, fear of the future that keeps me stagnant, fear of the unknown that keeps me in my comfort zone and keeps me from growing, fear of pain that keeps me from getting my wisdom teeth removed to starting a family, fear of rejection, fear of disapproval and disappointment.
The list goes on.
