adairbird Gratitude. Something I've been thinking about lately. The beauty that gratitude isn’t something that we practice only when it’s comfortable. But that He’s worthy of all that we are, in every season, because He is good. Jesus isn’t someone that we place to the side when we have better things to do. But that He’s before all things and in all things and holds us together moment by moment, because He gives great grace. The beauty that Jesus isn’t only found once a week through heavy doors in a padded pew. But that He’s sometimes found in the colors of the flowers. Don’t miss the beauty of who Jesus is and what He’s done for you today. 10h

adairbird Rainy days are my favorite. I love the sound of the rain pounding on my window. It's so calming to me. Right now... Even when I am alone, I can be comforted and secure in the love of my Father and presence of God. When I find myself alone, one of the best things I can do is recognize God is present and acknowledge Him. “You are with me, and You are in this moment, and You know. That’s enough for me. I will simply enjoy this with You. Thank You for being with me.” My flaws and imperfections have no weight in determining my value. My body someday will deteriorate and fail. The breathe inside me will have one final exhale. I am more than flesh, skin, and bone. I am more than what people see. I am more than my exterior. I was uniquely fashioned and formed before the eye of any other saw me; God knew me before I was known. The heart inside my chest: God knows it, He knows it better than the rest. God knows me from beginning to end. He created me, and He makes me new. He gave me a new name. He gave me His. God made me with a purpose, He made me for His glory. I am His. In my weakness, He empowers me through His Spirit: He is my strength when I have none. 1d

adairbird My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
-Psalm 73:26
//Everyday, for 3 1/2 years, I've been carrying around this pain with me everywhere. I'm just sick and tired of being sick and tired. God always keeps my spirits up, my mind strong, and my heart loving. But there's only so much I can handle. I'm mentally and emotionally exhausted from my terrible migraines and gut problems. It's almost too much to handle anymore. I've become numb to everything and everyone around me. All this seems to be a never ending vicious cycle, that it's preventing me to lead a normal life. I know that God heals and is with me every step of the way. But, why can I just have one day to experience no pain whatsoever? All this stress, anxiety, and depression becomes so overwhelming to the point where I don't know what normal is anymore. Pain is now almost like apart of me and has been my comfort for so long. I'm so drained of all this. But, I can handle it. God has given me strength to keep fighting for as long as it takes. I won't give up on myself. Whatever comes my way, I will overcome with the power of Christ.

adairbird When it comes to photos of myself, I only use Valencia to edit. I like to look as natural as possible and I want to portray the real me. I never wear makeup, brush my hair, or wear matching clothes. I'm just a girl who loves Jesus :) 2d

adairbird I lied, one very last snow photo. I forgot to share this one with you!! This beauty of a tree is in my front yard. Last weekend, it was covered in snow! @jenievamarie wanted to edit it because she doesn't get snow in California... Duh. If you want, you can go to her page to see her interpretation of this photo :) She did a great job! Also, @bethkellmer posted it on her page, as well as @thevillagestyle. Thank you to everyone for liking my photo! Photography is such a huge part of my life. I love searching for the little things that God blesses us with. 3d

adairbird Learn to be patient with yourself and to wait on God. Grace in imperfection. It frees you to trust in Christ’s sufficiency, not your own. It teaches you to trust God and the work He is doing in you through the trails more than your desire to rush ahead and be at the end of them. In brokenness, in pain, in your insufficiencies, failures, and weakness- there is hope in Christ in that place. You don’t have to despair or remain there; things can change and get better. God walks with us through it. He stays with you through the pain. His love will remain the same through the struggle. He won’t give up, and He won’t let you go. In brokenness, you gain such a deeper understanding of God’s love. There is hope of healing and restoration. So hold on. To know you are still accepted and loved in brokenness is a beautiful thing. 3d

adairbird We have every reason to rejoice. We have every reason to be thankful. We have every reason to love with the extravagant love He has shown to us all. I cannot help but to be so overcome with joy in this moment because not only did He save us with His life, but He fights for us every single day. He cares so deeply that we are protected. He goes out of His way to allow pain in our lives to be turned into passion. He releases us higher and higher as He makes our enemies as our footstool. He prepares a banquet table in the midst of our foes, and invites us to partake in intimate fellowship with no hindrances. He intercedes for us at the right hand of the Father in His authority, and He patiently awaits His reward that was burned into His eyes which led Him to the cross. He awaits us. Let our lips never stop giving Him praise. For He is worthy. 4d
