Faith Beyond Progress

Child of the Most High King

At seventeen years old, I found myself. I fell away from the ugly duckling, girl-in-the-shadows image I clung to and discovered the beautiful, confident, smart, and purpose-driven woman God knew me to be.

That was the key, really: finding my identity in Him. See, once you see yourself as a flawed, yet redeemed, heir – or heiress in my case – to the throne, in need of Jesus, you realize there isn't anything you can or cannot do to separate yourself from the Love of God. If He can know everything about me – every secret, every weakness, every flaw – and still love me, forgive me, and plan a beautiful life for me, then what am I waiting for? It's time to love myself back.

For the first time, I was able to look in the mirror and smile, thinking, Hey, I am beautiful, or, that crazy dream doesn't seem so crazy anymore because God put it on my heart. I urge you to see past your worldly desires, flaws, and comparisons; look to the One who created you in His perfect image and likeness; venture past the realistic and consider the extraordinary because that's where you'll find your Heavenly Father waiting for you to step on board. When you begin to love yourself, your heart will be open to love others the way you were created to. And moreover, you will be infinitely more lovable in return.

You are who God says you are, who He made you to be, with a will only you can fulfill.

Welcome to Today.

Today is the first day of the rest of our lives. Sounds inspiring, right? We believe God has extraordinary plans for each and every one of us and it's our belief in things we cannot see that carries us from day to day until His plans unfold. Today can be the beginning; today you can start fresh; today is a blank canvas for you to craft a masterpiece. We encourage you to stick with us as we take steps towards the dream we feel called to accomplish. Start conversation, ask questions, and share when you feel inspired to! 

With love,
