Contentment and your closet. Those are two words that don’t normally go together. When we look at our wardrobe, the last thing on our minds is that we have enough. Usually, what happens each day is this: we go to our closets, try on several items, and then get walk away frustrated because we have “nothing to wear.” What we have is never enough, and what we don’t have we believe will be enough. It is an endless cycle that we can fall into if we don’t guard our hearts and look at what we have through a gospel lens.

Contentment and Your Closet

Faithfulness, Fashion Week, identity

Confession. I am a recovering addict. Chances are, you are one too. I have been enslaved to “likes” and trapped by numbers for a lot of my life. The number battle seems to wage a war in my heart each day. Even before things like Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, I measured myself by how many people complimented me or knew me. In college I struggled with the numbers I saw on the scale. They never got low enough for me to feel beautiful and my body suffered from it (read more about my story here). It seems like we are constantly trapped by numbers and never appeased with what we see.

What if you are given everything you ever asked for, but you find it is not enough? What if our belief that getting to the next thing will make us happy is really just a misunderstanding of the freedom we’re offered in Christ?

When Everything Is Not Enough

A God-Sized Love Story, Faithfulness, identity, Marriage, Relationships, Well-Watered Women

When we start to believe that our very best in this life can be found by just achieving our goals, we forget that only good comes from God. I’m sharing some of my story with weight and the never-ending battle of saying goodbye to insecurity and hello to abundance in Christ.

Give Me Jesus Journal, My Not So Quiet Time, Philippians

Below is a post I shared on Internet Cafe Devotions. I pray it encourages you in the Lord to be thankful always and for all things! I’ll never forget sitting in the home of my pastor’s wife in college, folding laundry with her, and listening to every drop of wisdom I could get. She was […]

I am really ready for it to be fall. I keep tricking myself into thinking that the air is getting crisper outside, only to look at the temperature gage in the car that reads 89 degrees. Why is it that near the end of a season we wish for the next? It is almost as […]
