adairbird I was tagged by these beautiful ladies : @kibondki @simplyprettylife @_sweetdarling @kaitiehill @lavbug @forbingj @alicia_katherine_
to share 10 facts about myself!
1| I never knew just how big God's love was until my health was struggling. Giving my whole self over to Him was the best decision I ever made. I can't express enough how thankful I am that Jesus gives me so much strength everyday.
2| While driving, my music of choice is rap. I love listening to Beyoncé and acting all fierce.
3| when I was little, I used to have a small stutter. I couldn't even say my own name. I had to go to lots of therapy. Once I had double jaw surgery in 2005, it all went away!
4| I love my OKC Thunder! I'm a huge NBA basketball fan. My dad surprised me with tickets to 5 games this upcoming season! I can't wait!
5| I wish life were more like a musical. Where everyone would bust out in song and dance!
6| I have a binge-watching addiction with Netflix TV shows. When I love a show, I really love it. I'm currently watching Sons of Anarchy and How I Met Your Mother. Also, Shark Tank is one of my favorite shows right now!
7| I've never been on an airplane before. It's crazy, I know. That'll change one day!
8| My dream is to travel around the United States with my Canon. I want to witness all of God's beauty with my own eyes.
9| I love a good sunset. I love seeing God's artwork at hand.
10| Back in the day, I took guitar lessons for a long time. I wish I would've kept up with it!
11| (BONUS) I love nothing more than to encourage others. I want everyone to know how truly loved, and special they are. God made everyone uniquely beautiful and He sees His children as pure gold.

adairbird The other day, after my doctors appointment, my dad took me out on a date. It was pretty rad because he's pretty rad. While in the car, Hotel California came on the radio. We stared singing it at the top of our lungs because we know all of the words. My dad used to be a drummer so he also likes to drum on the steering wheel while singing. Anyway, he saw me staring at this beautiful clock necklace. Like the sweet man that he is, he bought it for me. I'm forever thankful to have such an amazing father that I can call my best friend. And... A Father in heaven that gives me strength to keep battling through this struggle with my health! 4d

adairbird Horses are such majestic, beautiful creatures. Surrounded by a huge field of green grass, and beautiful horses, I look up at the wide blue sky, my heart smiles and I feel the joy of sensing the presence of an awesome God. Yes, an awesome God. I consider God awesome when I ponder the way He created all things visible and invisible, and especially the way He made us -- humans. God created us in His own image and likeness, and we are fearfully and wonderfully made. In nature, I sense the nature of God! With the chirping of birds, I am urged to sing songs of praise and worship for the Lord. As I worship God, He touches my heart and reveals Himself to me in a very special way - that is, in nature, our environment. Furthermore, I am also reminded of God's goodness and faithfulness in my life. 5d

adairbird His nail-pierced hands hold mine, and we walk together. Even with the scars I gave Him, He holds on to me, for the price was worth the prize of my heart. He stays with me and leads me further in love. Tears gather in His eyes when He feels how tightly I grasp His hand. “I will never leave you. I will never abandon you. I will always be with you. I will never fail you. I am Faithful. Believe My words, I am True to them. I don’t break My promises. I don’t change. I am not like others who leave and fail your hopes and break your trust. You can put your hope in Me. You can believe in My love. You can trust Me with your heart.” He squeezes my hand. “I won’t let go. Ever.” 6d

adairbird But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded. -2 Chronicles‬ ‭15‬:‭7‬
//So overwhelmed with joy right now! Thank you to those who sent me encouraging words on my last post. It touches my heart like no other. I'm so truly blessed to know all of you. You guys are the ones that inspire, and encourage me to follow my dreams! I pour everything into my photos. Including my raw, uncensored thoughts. I love sharing my journey of living with anxiety and my road to recovery with my health with all of you. I pray my story gives you hope. God never just abandons us! We might be in the darkness at times, but He shows us the light to those who have faith in Him. Never give up on your dreams. Keep trusting our Heavenly Father with all of your heart and soul. He loves and cares for each of His children! I picked these flowers in my backyard just for you. Because... You are a treasure, and loved in the arms of Christ.

adairbird I love me some grapes from the Farmer's Market. Fun fact... I've been into the habit of freezing grapes and using them as a snack! 1w

adairbird When you face difficult times, know that challenges are not sent to destroy you. They're sent to promote, increase and strengthen you and your faith. Be rest assured that God is always at work in your life right now. He is directing your steps. What you thought was a setback is going to turn out to be a setup. I'm living proof of that. God is good! 1w

adairbird I want to encourage women to embrace their own uniqueness. Because just like a rose is beautiful, so is a sunflower, so is a peony. I mean, all flowers are beautiful in their own way, and that's like women too.

adairbird I see you as pure, because when I shed my blood for you, I washed you clean. I see you are precious, because you are worth it to me. I see you as you are, the way you were made; I see the way my Father designed you, and it is beautiful. The Creator of the universe has sealed you with His signature, calling you His own. I love my Father, and I see He loved you so much He made you like Him, and I love the way you resemble Him. Will you give up that old picture you have of yourself, and look in the mirror? You reflect the glory of God. You are radiant with His light, I brought you into the light when I rescued you from the darkness! You can’t mar the beauty I see within you, because it’s permanent. You don’t need to fear what I see, or how I will respond. I can not love you less. I saw all your sin and took the weight of your shame, all at once, and I carried it for you on the cross. I forgave you then. I set you free, I have redeemed you. My love is here, it’s for you, and it’s never-ending. Will you walk with me, and I will show you just how far it goes? 2w

adairbird The little girl within me that leaps for joy when I stumble upon a dandelion. Feeling uninhibited, I lay down in the cool grass, pick it's long stem and ponder what wish I may grant this beautiful weed flower, as I hold it delicately between my fingers. Once my head and my heart have aligned, I blissfully watch all of its seeds parachute into the wind as I blow it a kiss, and make my wish. 2w

adairbird I don't like to sugarcoat my emotions. I like to be honest and open about how I feel. I don't want to paint the perfect picture that my life is always going swimmingly well. That's not real life. That's not being real. Yesterday was a hard day. I felt so weak and tired, that I didn't even get out of bed. This detox has been making my body go up and down. One day I feel good, the next day I feel exhausted. 3 1/2 years of pain can make any person feel defeated at times. I realized that in brokenness, in pain, in my insufficiencies, failures, and weakness- there is hope in Christ in that place. I don’t have to despair or remain there; things can change and get better. God walks with me through it. He stays with me through the pain. His love will remain the same through the struggle. He won’t give up, and He won’t let me go. In brokenness, you gain such a deeper understanding of God’s love. There is hope of healing and restoration. To know you are still accepted and loved in brokenness is a beautiful thing. Sometimes, God’s best for me is to not have everything I want or “need”, so I can learn that He is all I need. In my weakness, He empowers me through His Spirit: He is my strength when I have none. Don’t be ashamed or afraid of brokenness or mess. God works deeply in brokenness. God creates so much beauty out of broken, humbled hearts. I must hold on.
“I have set my heart to love You.”

adairbird Knowing the love of God changes you. When you know His love, you also begin to know His heart. It’s because of who He is that He can love us the way He does. His heart is so beautiful, and the more you see it, the more you know it, the more you want to be like that, too. Jesus doesn’t change you to love you. He loves you and it changes you. The answer was not my love, but His. To know love, you have to know God, who is love. You don’t know what true love is until you know Christ. You can’t comprehend it until you simply lay yourself down and receive the love He longs to give you. Being loved is not about loving ourselves, but receiving the love of God. The answer is always Jesus, not self. If we look to self, we look to imperfect love. If we look to God, we look to perfect love. 2w
