Takeaway Tuesdays: Romans 12:13

I’m anticipating the arrival of Thanksgiving. It is quite possibly my favorite holiday—convening friends and loved ones. Breaking bread and spending quality time. To pause and give thanks for all that God has given the past year. This month’s print is centered upon Romans 12, verse 13. Pursuing hospitality, and sharing in the needs of others. I hope that Thanksgiving is a time you can join me in practically applying this verse.

Takeaway Tuesdays: Psalm 3:3

I love the Fall. It is my favorite time of year. I love the changing of the colors, the beginning of the school year (as a school nurse, I get to experience this over and over again with every year that passes). Basically all the “fally” things make my heart swoon. I’ve created this month’s Takeaway Tuesday with a Fall theme. And even though Fall brings about change, God’s character does not shift with the seasons. He is steady; He is our shield (our protector), and the One we can rest in when everything else changes. Let your hearts be encouraged by this friends.

Takeaway Tuesdays: Hebrews 4:9-11

This month’s Takeaway Tuesday free print is inspired by a really great book I read this summer, Soul Rest, by Curtis Zackery. He encourages us to return to Sabbath, or rest that recharges us—causing us to recenter our hearts, and enter into communion with God.

I highly recommend this book, and I have been inspired to take time once per week to rest and recharge, and spend time with God in my own way. Some times it looks like family dinners, sometimes it is spent with friends. Other times it is spent taking things slowly and taking a nap. My “Sabbath” is usually on Sundays because church is already on this day, but it by no means has to be from sun down Saturday night to sun down Sunday night. The best part about Sabbath, to me, is the freedom in how I choose to enter into communion with God. I am loving my time knowing more about Him and His people.

The print I created for this month is to encourage you to think about setting aside time to Sabbath yourself. I highly recommend this weekly rhythm.

Takeaway Tuesdays: 1 John 3:16

I love the summer months when I get to go on adventures to different places. This summer I visited family in both Maryland and England. And though traveling is one of my favorite activities, I can’t help feel “home” when I attend my church of 11 years, Outward Church. This morning’s message was on 1 John 3:16. I was encouraged by Pastor Matt’s words, especially, “If there’s action-oriented love in your life, there’s evidence of your love for God.” I created August’s Takeaway Tuesday based upon this passage. I hope you enjoy this free print.

Takeaway Tuesdays: Psalm 9:1-2

I’m working my way through the Psalms this January. In Psalm 9, David says he will give thanks with his whole heart, and he will recount all of God’s wonderful deeds. I love the idea of presenting my gratitude to God with my whole heart and remembering all He’s done for me. It’s not always easy to do when you’re in the midst of turmoil, or life in the mundane is seemingly on repeat — but to remember God’s faithfulness is a healthy practice. It means I am fixing my eyes up God, and acknowledging He is good. Here’s this month’s free Takeaway Tuesday print. Enjoy!

I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart. I will recount all of your wonderful deeds. I will be glad and exult in you; I will sing praise to your name, O Most High. (1)Click here for your free 11*8.5 print.

 

 

Takeaway Tuesdays: Romans 8:38-39

As a gal who knows and loves Jesus, I am acutely aware of the grace I’ve received. However, I am far from perfect, and my shortcomings present themselves- sometimes glaringly, sometimes subtly. I need God’s truth, through His word, to remind me that NOTHING can separate me from the love of Jesus Christ. I am His. End of story. This month’s Takeaway Tuesday, Romans 8:38-39, declares this truth.

Takeaway Tuesdays: Hebrews 13:2

I love Fall, ya’ll. Sweaters, boots, pumpkin baked goodies. Tea and coffee galore. Dinner with friends. As I’m thinking about Fall, and how it begins on Friday, I am prone to think about gatherings. Fall is the quintessential time of year to gather in our homes, for it naturally hosts holidays such as Thanksgiving. This Fall, I’m challenged and reminded to be hospitable to my fellow neighbor. This may mean someone who thinks completely differently than me, and that’s okay. There is beauty in gathering together. Let’s not forget that hospitality is not just for those gifted in it, but for every single person who knows and loves God. Let’s make this Fall a season of bringing together friends, new and old. Hebrews132
