- I sat in a Psychology class this past weekend where we were looking at the ways in which the brain determines personality & outlook. We conducted a simple experiment where the ‘scientist’ would ask the participant a series of questions, & measure their level of drift - which direction their eyes shifted to as they thought of the answer to the question. Evidence shows that the more a person’s eyes drift to the left as they think, the more the right side of the brain is activated. The more they shift to the right, the more the left side is being used. This relates to personality because the left brain is tied to positive thinking, while the right is tied more to the negative (this is wildly simplified for all of us non-psych majors lol) Anyway, I found this interesting because 85% of the time, my eyes drifted left. Meaning, 85% of the time, I was accessing the negative part of my brain. Based on our little experiments and larger studies, this means that Eudora is one hell of a pessimist and generally sees the world through darker glasses than most. And as I studied the results, I knew it to be true. I have never been a super happy, positive-thinking kind of person in my head - & yet funnily enough, I’m one of the most optimistic, give-everyone-a-chance, see-the-good-through-the-bad people you will EVER meet. I could be down to my last $10 and I’d be dancing down the hallways like no one’s business. I’d have an accident, and still be in good cheer. I never miss the bright side. And that’s when I realized that while the test was great in assessing my natural personality and demeanor, it would never be able to measure the impact the Holy Spirit has had on my life as a believer that has constantly enabled me to shift my perspective in all circumstances. When my brain says ‘weak’, the Spirit reminds me ‘I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.’ When my mind says ‘defeated’, my spirit says ‘I am more than a conqueror.’ When my mind tells me to stop loving because people are untrustworthy, the Spirit reminds me of how God loves me in the midst of my mess and enables me to do the same. The Holy Spirit has the power to shift your perspective. Let him.

- How do you start your day? As life gets more complex and 'adulting' becomes more of a daily thing, I've found it harder to have meaningful quiet moments of just the Lord and I. No excuses, I know, because if something is important then anyone can find the time and it's just about priorities. When I start the day with faith, to be honest the days are better, I'm encouraged and the things which used to annoy me - I just brush them off. And as I start the morning leaving everything in His hand, I know I'll start to see His hand in everything.

- I'm happy to say that this pretty lady sold at the craft show on Saturday!!⠀ ⠀ The day wasn't perfect, I didn't make what I'd hoped, but I did sell a few pieces of my heart *cough ART* and I'm happy they are now in loving new homes (instead of taking up space on my desk). I'm chalking this one up to experience and looking forward to the next show I get to let my new experience teach me to do better at. :)⠀ ⠀ God is good!⠀ P.S. Remember earlier how I said I'd have some ready to ship bibles up in my shop soon? Well they're up now! Link is in the bio!

- “Imagine yourself as a living house. God comes in to rebuild that house. At first, perhaps, you can understand what He is doing. He is getting the drains right and stopping the leaks in the roof and so on; you knew that those jobs needed doing and so you are not surprised. But presently He starts knocking the house about in a way that hurts abominably and does not seem to make any sense. What on earth is He up to? The explanation is that He is building quite a different house from the one you thought of - throwing out a new wing here, putting on an extra floor there, running up towers, making courtyards. You thought you were being made into a decent little cottage: but He is building a palace. He intends to come and live in it Himself.” — C. S.

- The other day I was scrolling through Insta and randomly came across this gorgeous 20 yr old influencer’s profile. I noticed how her boobs were so amazing and so much ‘fuller’, so I proceeded to scrolled through her feed like a crazy person until I realised she had got them ‘done’. . From that moment I down-spiralled into a black hole of insecurity, inadequacy and comparison. I want bigger boobs. I’ve never really liked my nose - I want to change it! . I went from 0 to 💯 in matters of seconds. I mean, this girl - as gorgeous as she is - found something to be unhappy with about appearance (I presume? How do I fully know what her reasoning is behind it?) and it caused me to look at myself and find a reason to be unhappy with my own face and body when just moments before I was totally okay with myself. . Why am I telling you this? Because soooo many of us struggle with insecurities and we often feel alone. 🙍🏼‍♀️The world and the media are always going to shove lies in our faces about how small our waists should be, the length of your hair, the colour of your skin and the size of your breasts… but we have to remember that they are illusions, not absolutes. We ALL face some kind of insecurities at some stage in our lives, and quite truthfully, I’m not sure if it ever really goes away as long as we are in this world…. BUT, the good news is that we become equipped with tools in order to help us kick insecurity off our back and replace the lies of the media with the truth of who God says we are. . The first thing I did was text my friend and spill my guts out because I knew she would have sound advice. The second thing I did was remind myself of who I truly am what God says over my life; that I am wonderfully and intricately made. I was made by divine design - without mistake. That I am loved wholly and completely exactly the way I am. . So next time you catch yourself scrolling and comparing yourself to another, remember that she’s probably comparing herself to somebody else too. Take a deep breath. Put the phone down. Remind yourself of who you truly are and get a friend to back it up with encouragement. You are accepted & loved EXACTLY as you are. 💖💖💖

- Most Christians want to have a closer, more intimate relationship with God. But finding time to pray, read and meditate on Scripture every day can be hard. Life is busy. There are plenty of distractions all around us, especially on our phones. . As a result, we feel as though we’re letting God down. That in turn makes us feel guilty and disappointed in ourselves. I am so aware how this negatively affects my relationship with my loved ones. This further makes us feel disconnected and distant from God. .

- @Regranned from @aussiedave - Have you ever marveled at God’s creation? This past weekend, my wife and went for a walk in the snow around our neighborhood, when suddenly about 1000 birds flew across the sky! For real! I was in awe of the sheer number of birds that filled the sky, and the way they darted over the tree tops. It was mesmerizing. Has that happened to you? Have you ever watched an animal in its natural environment, looked at a spectacular sunset, seen the mist rise over a forrest or stared up at the Milky Way and been awestruck by God's creativity and artistry? And here’s what I think is the most amazing thing; YOU are God’s greatest creation! In fact, YOU were made in His image—something God didn’t do with anything else He created. This idea of being made in the image of God led one theologian named Joshua ben Levi to write; “A procession of angels pass before a human being wherever he or she goes, proclaiming, ‘Make way for the image of God’.” Can you believe that? They’re talking about YOU—YOU are the image of God! You may not feel like it today, but in whatever you do and wherever you go, you are the pinnacle of God’s creation. I pray that you will know in your heart that YOU have been created in His image and reflect His glory and royalty. • “Then God said, "Let us make mankind in our image" — Genesis 1:26 • • • • • #birds #birdsofinstagram #morning #animalcrossing #birdstagram #tree #animalphotography #fingerprintofgod #verseoftheday #bibleverse #bible #godisgreat #prayer #Jesus #christianity #amen #christian #faith #holyspirit #bibleinphotos #god #jesuschrist #jesussaves #godisgood #shereadstruth #dailydevotion #devotional #wordsofwisdom #moodygrams #lensdistortions

- @Regranned from @aussiedave - English poet Samuel Johnson said “great things are performed not by strength, but by perseverance.” And a follower of Jesus named Paul wrote that perseverance “produces character and character produces hope.” We all want to do great things and have good character … but in order to get these, we first need to develop perseverance. When I got my first professional camera five years ago, I had no idea what ISO, shutter speed or f-stops were—or how they worked together to create images. Back then, if I’d tried to take a photo after the sun had set like this one, the result would have been a dark, unusable image because I didn’t know how to slow my shutter speed or raise my ISO to let in the light needed to get usable image. But I persevered. I didn’t let 1000s of dark, blurry images discourage me or wear me down. Perseverance is hard, especially when you feel discouraged, but the Hebrew word for perseverance—“hatmada”—comes from a root meaning “regular sacrifice”, which is exactly what persevering is, right? You regularly sacrifice your time, energy and comfort for a greater reward. Are you in need of perseverance today? Do you need strength to make the regular sacrifices that will lead to something better? If you LIKE this post and write HATMADA in the comments and this community will pray for you. • “Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial” — James 1:12 • • • • #ReflectionGram #reflection #boats #boat #justgoshoot #perseverance #beautifuldestinations #fingerprintofgod #verseoftheday #bibleverse #bible #godisgreat #prayer #Jesus #christianity #amen #christian #faith #holyspirit #bibleinphotos #god #jesuschrist #jesussaves #godisgood #shereadstruth #dailydevotion #devotional #wordsofwisdom #moodygrams #persevere

Back then, if I’d tried to take a photo after the sun had set like this one, the result would have been a dark, unusable image because I didn’t know how to slow my shutter speed or raise my ISO to let in the light needed to get usable image. But I persevered. I didn’t let 1000s of dark, blurry images discourage me or wear me down. Perseverance is hard, especially when you feel discouraged, but the Hebrew word for perseverance—“hatmada”—comes from a root meaning “regular sacrifice”, which is exactly what persevering is, right? You regularly sacrifice your time, energy and comfort for a greater reward. Are you in need of perseverance today? Do you need strength to make the regular sacrifices that will lead to something better?

- There are 13 sleeps left till Christmas 🎄This holiday season has felt very different than in years past. This time last year, my husband and I were preparing for a two week trip back to our hometown. There were mile long to-do lists that needed to be checked off, gifts that needed to be wrapped, and bikinis 👙that needed to come out of storage (Our families live in FL..haha). Christmas of 2015 was our first holiday as a married couple. We decided to stay put and spend it alone, which I highly recommend to newlyweds (if that’s an option). I put pressure on myself to make everything perfect and romantic for us; meanwhile, I had the stress of making sure all our packages arrived in Florida on time. We made SO many mistakes that year that we laugh about now. 🤣 We were THOSE people at FedEx, mailing boxes last minute to our family and spending way too much 💵 to guarantee Christmas delivery. We also thought it would be nice to enjoy a fancy dinner at home, complete with Julia Child’s Beef Bourguignon, red wine, and chocolates by the fire🔥 . Neither of us had made this dish before and apparently we skimmed the directions, missing the part where it says it takes 4-5 hours from start to finish. 🤭 As we read the instructions at 8 o’clock at night, we realized that our dinner would be completed by 1am, meaning frozen pizza would have to suffice. 🤣🤷🏽‍♀️ This year we will be staying at our place for the holidays again. Due to a busy schedule this year, (with more things on the way), I’ve found myself needing rest. I’ve craved slow mornings in the word, with my eggnog chai and some instrumental Christmas music in the background. My body wants shorter workouts and longer stretch sessions. I’ve wanted to spent less time in the malls and more time on the couch watching Hallmark Christmas movies 🎥 . If you needed permission to rest this season, this is it. ❤️ Each holiday season will look completely different and we have to adjust our expectations to make sure they’re realistic. I recently listened to a podcast that spoke to my soul. (Swipe left to see!) No matter what this holiday season looks like for you, I hope you guys are all enjoying it to the fullest!
