First giveaway of 2012

 "For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ."
Galatians 1:10
I love when the Lord just speaks to my life. I, like Paul, have been caught up in 'people-pleasing'. I am reminded that it simply cannot be done! You cannot people please and serve Christ at the same time.
Today, I made a beautiful exchange: I sought to please God instead of man. I smiled more, I gave God my burdens, worshiped & took time to pause. Joy filled me up, in a way I cannot explain. I haven't been feeling well physically, so this was huge. God was pleased with me.

Are you seeking to please God?



January Giveaway


My mom got me the cutest planner by Secret Garden. It looks like a vintage hardcover book and is just the perfect size for my purse and school bag! It's basically twice the wide size of my diana mini. I loved it so much, I wanted to give one away! A planner helps with to-do lists, meetings & even to organize our time with God!
What's more perfect than starting your year with a brand new planner anyway?

  31. First, I would've followed your blog even if you weren't doing a giveaway. I was completely inspired by this post! I've been studying the book of Acts and the life of Paul. Talk about an awesome guy serving an even more awesome God! And oh that we would all live simply to please Him...

    Secondly, I LOVE the design of your blog. It's so vintage and feminine looking. Simply beautiful...

    Thirdly, that planner is absolutely gorgeous!
