real talk

I find it a little humorous that my closest friends are normally more on the quiet, shy side.

through a series of non-coincidental events, I have been blessed with a steadfast friendship.

countless text messages, laughs, tears, hugs, i love you's, and painful vulnerability have enabled Emma & I to know each other and be fully known ourselves.

this is an irreplaceable love.

this morning, we were both a little down, and feeling bombarded with lies..
but with the revelation that that's exactly what they were--lies..
I refused to have a pity party.
I sent this message to her,
and I'd like to share it with you.

"it's kinda cool if you think about get attacked and hear lies..because it means we have something that the enemy wants. We are daughters of the most high God and have favor in His sight. HE LOVES US! I feel like I'm getting bombarded with lies..but right now I'm just praising God for who He is and rejoicing because He saved me in order that I know the truth and don't have to listen to these lies."

it's so simple, yet we often forget the victory of Jesus's death and resurrection.

"He will [HAS]swallow(ed) up death forever; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from all faces, and the reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth, for the Lord has spoken."
Isaiah 25:8
