TAKE A BREATH ❤️

Child of the Most High,

When was the last time you took a moment to breathe in God's beauty and soak up His creative perfection? Even if you only have a single minute today, consciously stop and allow God's breath to invigorate your lungs. Feel your heart beat and realize that you are the TREASURE of all treasures to your Divine Creator. You are fearfully and wonderfully made. As beautiful and intricate as a flower is, all of the flowers covering the earth cannot compare to the awesomeness that is YOU ❤️

You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it. You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed. (‭Psalms‬ ‭139‬:‭13-16‬ NLT)

In Awe and Wonder,

TRUE LOVE

Dear Friend~

What if there were a love that was limitless, full of passion, and without end? What if this love could fulfill every desire within you and make you feel you can do anything? What if it were accessible any time of day, no matter where you are? In fact, what if it weren't just available to you, but actually sought you out, offering all it had? Have you dreamed of a love so perfect that it continues long after you have messed up? Have you been searching high and low for a love that truly satisfies?

This love won't be found in a new job, new house, or new spouse. No, this is a love that can be compared with no other. It won't be satisfied through likes on Facebook or Twitter retweets. It's a once in a lifetime love, and once you've tasted of it, you'll be changed forever. It'll shake you to the core and make you live to pour that love upon everyone around you, even the most unlovable characters in your path. Friend, if you've been searching all your life for true love, I'm here to tell you, it has been found. May I introduce to you: the matchless love of Christ…

In His Grip,
Katie Marie

MORE OF YOU...

Jesus, all I want is more, more, MORE of You. This world is tasteless without Your spice. It is gray without Your color and lifeless without Your spark. To pull You out of the scene means a life devoid of all meaning. Help us to find You in the in-betweens of life ❤️

Surrendered,
Katie Marie

REBIRTH

Spring is an enchanting season of rebirth and renewal. It's a time when the barren winter trees are once again covered with the vibrant green of their lush leaves and budding flowers. 

This season always reminds me of the redemption God longs to bring to each of our lives. Whether you're suffering the loss of a relationship, a long-standing career, or perhaps even a loved one, Jesus yearns to rebuild each of the barren places of your life. He desires to bring you into a season of restoration, bursting with His goodness and grace. 


I encourage you to approach this season of rebirth with a sense of expectancy and awe, allowing your Creator the creative license to bring about His beauty in your life. And as you witness the leaves returning to the trees, thank Him for the new things He is bringing forth in your life...

"For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland." (Isaiah 43:19 NLT)

In Awe Of Him,

IMAGINE


Imagine...the love of a God so high, so wide, and deep that He spread His one and only Son out upon a rugged cross, crowned in razor sharp thorns for you.

But He didn't stop there - God raised Him from the grave and redeemed us all!!! Just think...Jesus chose YOU - will you choose Him today?

"Our firm decision is to work from this focused center: One man died for everyone. That puts everyone in the same boat. He included everyone in his death so that everyone could also be included in his life, a resurrection life, a far better life than people ever lived on their own." 2 Corinthians 5:14-15 (MSG)

Forever In Awe,

LIMITLESS

My Friends,

God is the limitless Creator. So why do we limit our beliefs in what He can do through us? When we surrender and allow Jesus to truly have the driver's seat in our lives, He can do incredible things!

Though you may be inclined to doubt yourself, NEVER doubt the God who fearfully and wonderfully made you to be GREAT through Him! Allow Him to be limitless in you ❤️

"But for you who welcome him, in whom he dwells—even though you still experience all the limitations of sin—you yourself experience life on God’s terms. It stands to reason, doesn’t it, that if the alive-and-present God who raised Jesus from the dead moves into your life, he’ll do the same thing in you that he did in Jesus, bringing you alive to himself? When God lives and breathes in you (and he does, as surely as he did in Jesus), you are delivered from that dead life. With his Spirit living in you, your body will be as alive as Christ’s! (‭Romans‬ ‭8‬:‭10-11‬ MSG)

THIS DAY

Hi Precious Friends,

In this modern era, it's so easy to get swept away by distractions and circumstances. Sometimes we need to just stop, breathe, and take inventory. As we experience these last few days of 2014 and look into the bright future of 2015, I wanted to share one of my latest poems. I pray it speaks to your heart and draws you ever-closer to the God who thought of you before He formed the foundations of the world...

THIS DAY
I will rest on Your promises
Today, I’ll seek Your face
And I will trust in the unseen;
This day, release my faith.
I won’t dwell on circumstances
Swirling all around me.
This day, I’ll choose to rise above
By standing on belief
That You, my faithful Father,
Are always there for me;
Pouring out your love,
Unending grace on the scene.

Though waters tend to rise up
You only let me drown
In mercies never ending,
Even when I let you down
By begging You for answers
My heart still longs to know.
Instead, You fill their spaces
So doubt and fear can’t grow.

I know that You are for me
Each moment of these days
So forgive me for my questions
And times I’ve walked away.
It’s not that I don’t trust You;
I give You all I have.
But sometimes life gets messy,
Confusing where I am…
Forgetting I’m Your priceless,
Your beloved and Your friend;
Forgetting You are with me,
Far beyond the very end.

So Lord, oh please forgive me
For mistakes that I have made,
Decisions that have hurt you,
For questioning Your Way.
My Father, You are faithful,
Abba loving, Abba kind.
So this and everyday,
God, please hold this heart of mine.


Thankfully Forgiven,
Katie Marie
