adairbird The darling @alimunn made all of these beauties. I know, right? So gorgeous and very me! She is beyond talented and has such a gift. I can't choose my favorite because I love them all equally! Each piece is so unique and crafted with a lot of love. Her style is on point in my opinion :) I love praising people's talents. God has blessed each of us with special gifts! God wouldn’t have given it to you if the world didn’t need it in some way. Don’t limit yourself because the One who made you gave you a purpose, which you wouldn’t have if He didn’t give you the ability to complete that purpose.‬ His love is flawless and perfect. Such love is beyond our ability to grasp with our minds, but it is not beyond our ability to experience with our hearts. 11h

adairbird God did this so that they would seek Him and perhaps reach out for Him and find Him, though He is not far from any one of us. ‘For in Him we live and move and have our being.’ As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are His offspring.’
-‭Acts‬ ‭17‬:‭27-28
//Jesus showed the way in human form how to live as the beloved, and now He leads the way in present tense. It is in Christ through which we live and move and have our being. It is in Christ that we live into the eternal knowledge of being the offspring of God. It is in Christ by which we drink more and more deeply of that life changing truth. We can only know ourselves truly when we allow the one who has created us to also identify us, and for us to in turn identify with the one who has created, called, and redeemed us. We must rest in our belovedness and marinate in the delight God feels for us. This is what allows us to live and breathe and have our being.

adairbird He said to her, "Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.
-Mark 5:34
//I woke up this morning feeling ready. Ready to finally start my road to recovery. I'll be doing a detox to get rid of all the yeast in my body and those nasty toxins. For 60 days, I'll be on a strict diet and taking tons and tons of vitamins. I can't wait to have a normal, healthy body again. After 3 1/2 years of searching for answers, I finally got them. I'm still unsure if this will take away my migraines. But, my future is suddenly looking even more brighter to me. I'm starting to see growth and progress. I couldn't see any of those things at the beginning of this journey. I look at my life. At all the obstacles I've had to overcome. I can't believe I overcame so much. Even with anxiety and many panic attacks. Loosing my lovely grandma to dementia. Loosing my dog of 15 years. And, loosing @lala_islove to cancer... I kept going. I kept striving to fight. I can't take all the credit. It's all thanks to Jesus. At my weakest moments, He gave me strength to preserve. I'm so thankful I never gave up on myself, or Jesus. I'm also so blessed to have amazing, loving parents who dropped everything just to help me get better. I know all parents would do anything for their children... But mine went above and beyond. I never want to take them for granted. I'm still not healed. I'm still not at my best. But, I have so much faith in my Savior. If you're struggling with anything right now... Never give up on yourself. Never throw in the towel. God wastes no pain. You are so much stronger than you know. I'm praying you understand just how truly special you are. This is my testimony. I share it willingly to help others because I love all of you and care deeply for your well-being.
Remember, Jesus heals!

adairbird Awhile back, I decided not to date or get “involved/attached/fall for (etc!)” a guy. God alone. I know it is God’s will for me to love Him with all my heart, soul, mind, body, and spirit…everything I am. And I know I can’t do that if I put my own selfish desires and own fleshly yearnings in the front seat, with my own foolish intuition to guide the way. No. I need God so desperately it’s not even funny, and I know that all too well. So, I made a big commitment. To God. Literally, my love life is out of my hands. Because it doesn’t exist outside of God. God says to love Him. To love my neighbors, as I do myself. And that’s the greatest, bottom-line version of the best way to please Him. Yay for realizing the simplicity of that! God is my Man. Not just for the next year, but for forever. I am pretty content being in love and committed to the most amazing guy ever. He grows me a new bouquet of flowers every day. He paints the sky, lights my world (literally), and wrote a whole book for me to indulge in. He sometimes makes me dance, definitely puts a song in my heart and music on my fingertips. I love Him and couldn’t live a day without Him. And wouldn’t want to. I never want to get so distracted or so self-centered that I fall away from my True Love. 1w

adairbird Remember that flower my dad picked for me? It blossomed beautifully!
//We love to look at beauty. One way I love to look at beauty is through photography. I enjoy taking photos and looking at photography of different places or things I consider beautiful: green mountainsides, gigantic trees, couples in love, a colorful field of flowers… I could go on for a long time. God filled this world with beauty. Like our Creator, we love to create beauty, too. But our culture has changed the definition of beauty and distorted it into an obsession instead of appreciation. The word “glamour” comes to mind, and makes me think of how showy our society has become that beauty is an object to be obtained then displayed. Beauty is something we all are enthralled with, yet we still often overlook it. We miss beauty in the everyday blessings of breathing, nature, people; we miss beauty in our own reflection. I love the saying, “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” God’s eye beholds you and sees beauty. God looks at us and sees beauty. Wow... God has created beauty all around us. There are seeds of beauty, sprouts, and full grown beauty. I pray you're encouraged! Remember, you are loved by our Savior. More than you can ever imagine. You're His beautiful masterpiece!

adairbird I'm SO thankful for this Instagram community. I've developed real relationships with different people from all over the world. I love connecting with everyone and sharing my love for photography and Jesus. @jennilee61 sent me this all the way from Australia! It's a flower coloring book. What's not to love?! Oh, she knows me so well. Jenni has the most beautiful, loving heart. She cares so much for others and spreads sunshine everywhere she goes. She's been like a mentor to me... And, a huge encouragement and supporter in my life. I'm so grateful to call her a friend. Plus, she is a flower lover and takes beautiful photos! All I can say is, I'm so blessed to know her as well as YOU! Thank you all for showing me so much love! You're all very important to me :) 1w

adairbird All these trials, all this pain, all the things that have created so much brokenness in my life and heart- I believe God is using it for good. I never wanted to go through this, I haven’t understood most of it; but it’s drawn me closer to Christ. The battles I’ve been through have broken me down to nothing at points, but God works deeply in us in brokenness. He is gentle, patient, able, compassionate, understanding, and full of mercy and grace. He does not abandon the work of His hands. That gives me so much hope, knowing He never gives up on me. He doesn’t allow the pain or trails for nothing; He has a purpose to use all things for good and His glory. I think sometimes as Christians we may be afraid of brokenness. Or ashamed, like something is wrong with us. It puts you in a state of neediness and vulnerability that is utterly humbling. Exposing your heart, admitting you don’t have it all together, admitting there are things you don’t understand, admitting you are hurting or falling apart- that is hard. It’s not weakness, or a bad quality; it’s strength, it’s courage. To be able to share the most broken parts of your heart and life with God, with another person, is courageous; to know you are still accepted and loved in that brokenness is a beautiful thing. Acknowledging that you are in the process of healing and being restored, that not all the pieces are there, and it may take a long time before they are mended… It takes deeper levels of humility than you’ve ever dived into before. You 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, you gain such a deeper understanding of His love. There is hope in Christ in that state. There is hope of healing. So hold on. God does not give up on those who are His own; He will not let go of you, no matter what you are going through. His love endures, and His love will overcome. Something good will come of it! 2w
