Thankful for the folks from Good Shepherd and Zion United Methodist Churches for their hard work this week! Super excited for the painting party next month!
Somewhere along the way we need to stop ✋looking at life as living one sacrifice after another and start living "Glory to glory." 🎉🎉🎉🎉 As I reflect on things I want but have "sacrificed" to live in Guatemala in this season... I could easily become so frustrated with God! But I'm learning to praise Him now not in spite of what I don't have, but BECAUSE of what I don't have, and see the amazing ways He is showing His glory in my life right now. As it says in 1 Timothy 6:6 ~ Godliness with contentment is great gain! God is a good shepherd. We may know that famous passage, Psalm 23, saying that He leads you beside the still waters. "Still waters" sounds pretty but if you were to drink from a pool of stagnant water, you would get violently ill! Only running water or water from a well can be clean. God doesn't expect you to know what's best, He just expects you to follow Him. . He leads you beside the still waters because this is your season to reflect and enjoy things from a ways off, not your season to drink. Yes He wants you to see the beautiful pool because it's worth looking at, and He wants you to trust Him to take you past it and to the drinkable water soon. . He makes you lay down in green pastures because He knows there may be strenuous circumstances ahead. And though you want to run forward at this time He is asking you to rest up now because you will need that strength and more later. . What a beautiful God we serve. Instead of focusing on what you're not getting - that refreshing drink, that chance to run... consider what the Master may know that you don't. If you continue to follow His voice, He will make sure you get what you need, at the right time, in the best way. . The things you feel that you lack are intentional and for your own long term good. Consider this moment where you are as a gift and a display of God's glory. #goodshepherd #glorytoglory #GodisGood #SheReadsTruth #Psalm23 #ambitiouschristianwomen #godliness #ChristianWoman

Parables of Jesus Christ: The Vine ________________________________ Jesus said: "I am the true vine, and my Father the Gardner. Every branch in me that does not bear fruit, He takes away: and every branch that bears fruit He purges it so that it bears more fruit. Now you have been made clean through the word which I have spoken to you. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, so no more can you unless you abide in me. I am the vine and you are the branches. He that abides in me, and I in him, produces much fruit, for without me you can do nothing. If a man abides not in me, he is cast forth as a branch and is withered and men gather them and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. If you abide in me and my words abide in you, you shall ask what you will and it shall be done for you. In this way my Father is glorified, so shall you be my disciples. As the Father as loved me, so have I loved you: continue in my love. If you keep my commandments you will abide in my love, even as I have kept my Father's commandments and abide in His love" (John 15:1-10) #GloryToGod #GodsWillBeDone #DailyBread #WordOfGod #Gospel #GoodNews #Jesus #Cornerstone #SonOfGod #Messiah #Beloved #Favoured #HolySpirit #GoodShepherd #Anointed #Vine #TheVine #Parables

"Let not your heart be troubled...believe also in Me." - John 14:1 - •• "Am I then hurting Jesus by allowing my heart to be troubled? If I believe in Jesus and His attributes, am I living up to my belief? Am I allowing anything to disturb my heart, or am I allowing any questions to come in which are unsound or unbalanced?" - Oswald Chambers - In the last month of insanity, I have seen my God prove Himself faithful and in control of the chaos. The largest aspects and the minutest details of my life are subservient to His command. Now, when there is a lull in the storm, it is oddly easy to want to take control again. It's as if I start to think that I can look after myself once the waves simmer down a bit. Don't be deceived, little lamb. Be anxious for nothing. It takes as much grace to trust God in rest as it does to trust Him in chaos. But whether it be storm or calm, { H E } is in control. Be still, little one.

I decided to show up a little early for pick up so I could catch a peak of my little guy playing soccer! I loved how he was cheering on each player and was learning about Honesty this week! He loves @soccershotsla and I love how much fun he is having as he learns soccer skills and how to be a great team player! #milspouse #momofboys #boymom #soccershots #soccer #soccerboy #goodshepherd #preschool #outsidetime #play #havefun #tilinsiders #kindredmom #momlife

When prayers are being answered, and when He showed an unexpected miracle! The overwhelming feeling to praise God is unexplainable! But all I want to do is shout and praise Him!

"The Savior’s compassion in the face of our imperfections draws us toward Him and motivates us in our repeated struggles to repent and emulate Him. As we become more like Him, we learn to treat others as He does, regardless of any outward characteristic or behavior. The Savior said that He “cannot look upon sin with the least degree of allowance”; so how can He look at us, imperfect as we are, without recoiling in horror and disgust? The answer is simple and clear. As the Good Shepherd, Jesus Christ views disease in His sheep as a condition that needs treatment, care, and compassion. This shepherd, our Good Shepherd, finds joy in seeing His diseased sheep progress toward healing. Like the true shepherd He is, He seeks us and finds us to offer relief and hope. Our Good Shepherd is unchanging and feels the same way today about sin and sinners as He did when He walked the earth. He does not recoil from us because we sin, even if He on occasion must think, “But what a sheep!” He loves us so much that He provided the way for us to repent and become clean so we can return to Him and our Heavenly Father. In doing so, Jesus Christ also set the example for us to follow—to show respect to all and hatred toward none."

Psalm 23:1-3 The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters. He restores my soul; He guides me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake. ------- Growing up, my sister and I were in 4-H. In January of every year we would go and pick out a lamb at a sheep farm and bring it home. We loved our sheep, named them, cared for them, fed them, ran them up our big hill for exercise. We had to give them shots to prevent diseases. Which was painful to have to give but we knew it was good for them in the long run. They were given everything they needed to live. We each had a responsibility to be "shepherds" to those sheep. We corrected them when they didn't go where we wanted them to go. (Sheep can be quite dumb sometimes!) In August we took them to the fair and eventually they were sold to market. We surely felt the sadness of letting them go. In the same way God is our Good Shepherd. He loves and cares for us, gives us all we need. He sends the Holy Spirit to correct and redirect us...even into fresh new pastures (if we listen and follow). But the most important thing he did for us was to give His life for us all. He truly is the Good Shepherd! #c_streetstudio #goodshepherd #leadmelord #heleadsme #foreverfaith #oilpainting #clouds #greenpastures #kingsvalleyoregon #handlettering
I stepped outside to this view today. I realized that it's easy to look at the fog and the mist in our lives and let them overwhelm us until we allow His Light to burn through the lies. Jesus made 7️⃣ I AM statements in the Gospel of John: I Am the Bread of Life I Am the Light of the World I Am the door of the sheep I Am the good Shepherd I Am the Resurrection and the Life I Am the Way, the Truth, and the Life I Am the True Vine. What do you need I AM to be for you today? He is all that we need, and He is WHO we need Him to be. #sunrise #Hepaintsthesky #IAm #goodshepherd #breadoflife #lightoftheworld #resurrectionandthelife #thewaythetruthandthelife #thetruevine #doorofthesheep #dunklinmemorialchurch

I seldom take pictures of our sheep without reflecting on the reality that I too have a Shepherd watching over my life, actively leading me to good places and actively protecting me from harm. And when I really take a moment to let that reality go beyond the shallows of my mind and penetrate deeper into the every churning depths of my sometimes chaotic soul, there is a comfort and a peace in that 'knowing' that is greater than any other confidence I've experienced in this life. It's a lot like the sudden calming of a great storm out in the middle of the ocean. ...and in the place of those 'still waters', I lay down my anxiety, my tension, my feeble attempts to control the uncontrollable, and I rest in the loving care of my Good Shepherd. I. Am. Loved. I. Am.

Another sweet spot called the Glory Hole in my recent adventure in Branson....Every time I get out and enjoy God's creation my soul is strengthened!!:) He lets me rest in green meadows; He leads me beside peaceful streams.Ps. 23:2 #restoremysoul #goodshepherd
When a lamb panics they often run all over bawling wildly for mom and of course she comes running. Yet in his panic he can’t slow down long enough to see and hear what’s right in front of him. Many times they will run right past their own mother or continue to bawl right in front of her not hearing her cry back to them. Not until their mom reaches out and touches them will many stop and realize she’s been there the whole time. I know I can’t be the only one to ever react this same way can I? I’m spending so much time running around trying to figure out a situation on my own while all along God has been right there calling to me. Even in our panic, God is always with us. New blog post up. #linkinbio
This image is not from Venice Beach for once. It is from the work of been doing with nonprofits who help the homeless in Los Angeles. About a week ago I went out on outreach with Sister Rosaline from Good Shepherd Homeless Centers as she drove her van across areas near downtown LA to give food to homeless women on the street. It was quite a magical experience to witness her at work and the faces of the women she helped that day. One moment (pictured here) stood out as the most poignant when a little girl living on the street came to the van to receive food. I've been on outreach many times with other organizations and it's extremely rare to see homeless children actually living on the street. They're usually housed in homeless shelters or at least a car or a van of some sort. After giving out some food Sister Rosaline spoke to the mom (not in this shot) to give her some tips about securing a spot in a shelter for herself and the child.

The sheep got a new salt block! It's important to offer the flock minerals, deficiencies can impact fertility, low milk production, strength, and overall health. #bellsfarm #familyfarm #baaramewe #healthyflock #goodshepherd
