Scripture Sunday Printable: Proverbs 31. Her children arise and call her blessed.


Hi friends, with Mother's Day just one week away,
 I thought I would make us some printables for the women in our lives: 
the mommas, the grandmas, the aunties, the sisters.
The ones who make our lives a little sunshinier;
who make us feel a little more known, a little less alone. 
These are for them.

Free Sunday Printable: The Lord is with you Mighty Warrior, Judges 6:12

I have been wanting to make this for us {you & me} 
ever since I listened to this sermon last November.
Blew. My. Mind. 

This verse was a tiny blip in the story of Gideon and it was almost a side note, a comment.
It wasn't even the point of the whole sermon. But it blew my mind.
I've read this story before, and I've never noticed this verse.



"The Lord is with you, Mighty Warrior."

What is so amazing to me about this verse, is that
God declares the truth of who Gideon is, 
even though Gideon doesn't see himself that way. 
Whoah. I know.

Gideon is not this faithful, fearless, "Pick me, Lord" kinda guy.
He is unsure and afraid. He doesn't believe what the Lord tells Him and he tests God.
The whole story is right here.

In spite of how Gideon see himself, 
God sees him as a mighty warrior. 
In spite of how I see myself God sees me as a mighty warrior.
His mighty warrior. And you too. 

We can't see ourselves.
We see ourselves through a distorted circus mirror,
and we believe the lies we are told:
from our past, from the world, from people who don't know us,
from people who love us deeply.
They are lies. Lies from the pit.

And our maker, our creator, the lover of our souls,
hides us up in the shadow of his wings
and whispers, "No, no, no. Don't believe the lies."

This is the truth of who you really are in Jesus:

You are my mighty warrior.
You are my masterpiece, my spoken poem.
You are fearfully and wonderfully made.
You are loved with an everlasting love.
You are set free from sin and death.
You are my child: chosen, holy, and dearly loved.
You have been redeemed from the pit and 
crowned with love and compassion.
You are my beloved daughter. 
With you I am well pleased.

So, the more I know the truth of who God says I am in Jesus, the more I know me.
The more I know his voice, the better I can discern the truth from the lies.
The more time I spend with him, the quieter the lies become,
 the more real the truth becomes.
Tangible. I can see it and feel it.
It's kind of blowing my mind.

I made a  5 x 7 printable for us to remember who God says we are.
Click here to print it out for you and your neighbor and your mailman.



Put it in you car or window sill, or on the back of your 3 year old's door when
 he won't stay in bed and you want to pull your hair out.

Life is hard, friends. It just is. Even when it isn't, it still is.
He has gone before us and He promises to give us the strength to endure,
 to fight every battle, to accomplish what He has called you to do today.

My prayer for us today is that we would hunger and thirst
to know the truth about who God says we are, and then we would believe it and walk in it.
I pray that His truth would become REAL, not just words, but REAL in our lives.
I pray that we would have the courage and faith to believe who He says we are.
And watch

We believe, Lord, help our unbelief.
Let your holy spirit open up our eyes and hearts and minds to
who you have already made us in Christ.
It is already done. We don't need to do or earn or strive.
It is finished.
I pray that your holy spirit would fill us up with your truth
and give us the mind of Christ to discern the truth from the lies.
Lead us and guide us in your truth and your love.

In Jesus Name,
Amen, sisters.

2014 Favorite Posts

We made it through Christmas friends. 
Hallelujah. Can I get an amen? 

2014 was a year of transition for us. It was good. It was hard. It was crazy. 
Pretty much sums up life, right? After writing this post, I'm realizing that
 we did a lot more than it feels like we did. 

In January

I started hand lettering more and kind of fell in love.

I chose a new word, it was a verse, actually.




I made some new year's wishes for 2014,
Thank you St. Teresa of Avila, for the inspiration.

Merry Christmas to you.

We almost missed the family photo shoot this year.
I'm so glad we didn't.


Family photos are one of those things that are SO 
hard to make myself (and my family) do, 
but so worth it. every. single. time.
