484 Rock On Girl!

We’re all seeking the secret to getting to the next level of life. How do you level up? How do you graduate to more? How do you get that promotion to higher grounds? How do you climb up from where you have been and taste what is available now? I’m completely humbled by the journey God has taken me on in my life. Today that journey brings me to a place I could have never imagined. A place of stepping up to a microphone every morning and hosting Spotify’s number 1 devotional podcast in the world, in my country twang and funky play on words. Today I get to create adventure retreats for women and take them to beautiful places all across the country, and these retreats aren’t just fun, they change lives. I mean seriously ya’ll, I have the best job in the world! That’s today … but let me tell you about the first 9 years of this decade on this journey. I struggled. Struggled hard. I created, and few listened. I hosted and little showed up. Our family often went in the red with my crazy ideas that once again fell flat. BUT GOD … remember the devotional from earlier this week … BUT GOD. I struggled and I failed … BUT GOD. But God had so much more available to me … and the way there was directly through the struggle. I had to be willing to struggle right through it. Keep showing up in the failure and get better. Keep believing that maybe it would work the next time, then shake off the discouragement when it didn’t. How do you get to the next level of life? How do you graduate to more? How do you get that promotion to higher grounds? How do you level up? YOUR ROCK THE CURRENT LEVEL YOU’RE ON. YES, exactly where you are today, you show up with the best God has placed within you and you rock this. I truly believe the only way this simple little country girl from Ava, MO stepped up from being the french fry manager at McDonald’s to hosting the number one devotional podcast was rocking every single level of life in between. I’m going to tell you a little secret … I loved working at McDonald’s. And I’ve loved every entry level position after that. Loving your job has nothing to do with your boss or your position … it has everything to do with your perspective and attitude. When you can rock your current level in life and be faithful with what is expected of you today, you prove yourself capable of more. How could we ever expect to be entrusted with more if we’re ungrateful with the offerings of today? How could we ever think we will level up if we’re not showing up exactly where we already are. You won’t magically start showing up with a better attitude when you’re promoted in life. It doesn’t work that way. And your creator knows it! God laid out a plan for us in scripture. A 3 step plan to rocking life and leveling up. I Corinthians 15:58 “Be ye steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.” Now let’s break it down. First, be steadfast. Steadfast is from the root word SIT. In other words, you must be seated. Be settled in the truth. We live very unsettled lives in an unsettled world. We are tense, uptight, anxious and always stirred up about something. And God says be steadfast – sit down – settle down. Be RELAXED. Did you know you can be working and still be relaxed? God never intended for you and I to go through the days of our life so unsettled. Don’t you know you are way too blessed to be stressed. Stress is the plan of the enemy. Have you fallen into his trap? You see, as long as you are stressed and anxious, you can never be seated in truth. You can never be steadfast in knowing who you are and who’s you are. Today, take a seat in what you know to be true. You are forgiven, you are chosen,

This morning we woke up to 27 days left in this decade. 10 years of living and it all comes down to these final 27 days. What could you do with this time? The options are many, however the most popular choices will be to stress and rush. And what do we miss if we fail to savor these days? We miss the opportunity to fully live. Have you ever thought about each day of life as the opportunity of a lifetime? Seriously, the gift of living. Could there be a greater gift? I’m here in San Antonio, TX today to attend the funeral of a BIG Life girl. Jasmine was a 30 year old mama with 2 little girls, who ran out of days. Her days were limited to 11,253, and then her opportunity to live came to an end. It seems so tragic. A family grieving a tremendous loss of a bright and hopeful life. Jasmine didn’t receive these final 27 days of the decade. BUT WHAT IF YOU DO? Will you live every single one of them? Today has a number on it. It’s a number in your allotted days of life. A countdown on you...

482 Positioned By a Problem

There’s one thing that helps me when going through a problem. One thing that gives me permission to still find joy on the journey when the journey is darn hard. This one thing is knowing down deep within that there’s a purpose. There’s a purpose in my problem. There’s a purpose in my pain. There’s a promise being fulfilled and a purpose being developed. We can take a lot … as long as we know it’s not all for nothing. As long as we know somehow or another it’s going to be used for something good. As long as we know this long hard road is leading somewhere worth the journey. Time and time again in the hardest parts of my life, there has been a single scripture I’ve repeated. When someone comes to me struggling to live a good life today because of a nightmare childhood, there is a single scripture I share. When someone comes to me in the middle of a crisis that doesn’t make sense, there is 1 scripture. Today, in the middle of a season that doesn’t make sense, I come back to ...

481 Not What It Seems

There are seasons in our life where things seem to all be going wrong. Where our efforts seem to be in vain because our progress is so little. A season where the days seem so long. Are you there? Is this your current season? There’s an important word I’ve used here, and it’s a little word with potentially massive impact. You likely missed it, as we do in life. We miss the little things which can make a big difference. Things SEEM to be going wrong. Your efforts SEEM to be in vain. The days SEEM so long. It may seem a certain way, but it may not actually BE this way. It may feel like it and look like it, but what if there’s so much more going on in this season of your life that you cannot see. And what if it’s all for a great purpose. A purpose that will make all of this totally worth it. I’ve been on Facebook for 10 years. It’s a love/hate relationship, so I’ve learned to be very careful in how I use it. Without intentional care, I could spend my life watching you live your ...

480 Available and Excited

Are you available? To be available means you are open to something. Or are you occupied? Occupied with the busyness of life and all you have to do. God has a question for you today. He’s not concerned with your ability, he wants to know your availability. God can equip you with anything and everything you need. He can supernaturally strengthen you, he can raise you up, he can enlighten you, he can give you wisdom you’ve never had before. Oh yes, he can equip you with an abundance of ability. But what he won’t do is force you to be available for what he can to do in your life. Availability is up to you. How much of God’s goodness and provision have we missed because we simply haven’t been available to receive it? I’ve been so darn busy, filling my days with duties and distractions, maybe I’ve missed what God has been offering me. I’ve decided I don’t ever want to miss it again … how about you? What can God do in a life that’s available to him? Oh, it’s easier to make a mu...

479 Black Friday Mayhem

Welcome to Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving where your jeans fit tighter and everything is on sale! It’s always interesting to me that we go from the day we declare our gratitude for all we have, and jump into the day we need to go out and buy more. Americans will spend approximately $5 billion in this 24 hour period on Christmas shopping. Half of today’s shoppers will go into debt with their purchases. Countless fights will break out among proper, wool-coat wearing women in overly crowded stores. Pushing and shoving, sprinting through the isles in a frenzy, absolute mayhem in the local Walmart over that hot deal, all while Christmas music plays happily in the background. Joy to the world. Why? Let’s stop the madness for just one moment and think about why we’re doing this. Oh yeah, because we’re celebrating Jesus. (with my sweetest southern voice) Then we come home and do the chore we all dread doing … we have to wrap all those presents. Did I mention decorating the h...

478 Day of Thanksgiving

Every morning when we wake up, we get to choose our attitude. Any attitude we wish is available for the taking. We can put it on and wear it the entire day, and just like the right pair of shoes can change the outfit, the right attitude can change your experience. Most days we wake up unaware of this choice. We wait and see how our jeans fit, how our hair looks, and what the weather is. Good day, good attitude. Bad day, bad attitude. Average day, average attitude. We allow our experience to dictate and determine our perspective. But within us is the power to change our entire experience, regardless of circumstances. Today we have the extreme gift of waking up to a day when the preferred attitude is predetermined. It’s Thanksgiving, and what do we do on Thanksgiving besides eat a feast … we give thanks. Yes, we knew to wake up with an attitude of gratitude today. I’m here to tell you if you maintain that attitude of sheer gratitude throughout this day, your experience will be radi...

477 10 Year Challenge

Have you seen it going around on Facebook? The 10 year challenge. Post a photo of you today compared to a photo of you from 10 years ago. Sounds scary because, girl, you’ve gotten older! However, have you noticed what I’ve noticed? Everyone looks remarkably better today at 10 years older! What?!!!!! Ya’ll we’re getting better with age! We’re basically fine wine and cheese with our aging process making us better. Stop and think about it … are you getting better? How far have you come in the past 10 years? You’re not who you once were! This is all a result of God’s work in you. He’s refining you. How? Through the fires! It wasn’t an easy, comfortable life where every step was known in advance and every turn was well marked that brought you here. No, it was the stumbles. It was the hardships. It was the season where there was a lot more month left at the end of your paycheck. The money ran out ya’ll! Like digging for change kinda broke! Remember those times … or maybe you’...

476 God’s Big Project

Have you ever taken an honest look at your life, where you are, how you are living, and who you’ve become, and honestly been a little disappointed? Or maybe a lot disappointed? This isn’t how you imagined your life would be. You thought by now you would have things figured out. You thought by now it would be easier and you would be happier, but the reality is a little shy of the dream. These are your ruins. The leftovers of what you imagined life could be. The remains of what once looked so promising, but now is a messy problem for which you don’t know the answer. Ruins. The ruins of a family. The ruins of a career. The ruins of your once promising potential. The ruins where we’re reminded of our pain, disappointment and shortcomings. The ruins where we once had great hope for the future, but now we seem hopeless in the loss. It’s what’s left. Show me your ruins, and I’ll show you where God is primed to work in your life! Our almighty God specializes in restoration. If he had...

475 Offer of the Day

Maybe you woke up this morning feeling less than. Well, are you ready to be lifted up on this Monday morning? Are you ready to receive life today, direction for today, and energy to do exactly what needs to be done today? God is here to meet you, to revive and restore you. Where have you been running ragged? Where have you been defeated? Where are you weary from the fight? Come receive from the Father and be resurrected. Jesus is the resurrected King and he is here to resurrect you. He died on the cross, he was buried in the tomb for 3 days, then he was resurrected, meaning he was revived, restored and lifted up. And all of this was for you. Yes, for your ticket to Heaven, but also for this exact day in your life. Today. What Jesus did for you was for TODAY. One of my favorite songs is called “Resurrecting” by Elevation Worship. It says: By Your spirit I will rise From the ashes of defeat The resurrected King, is resurrecting me In Your name I come alive To declare Your victory Th...
