sarahfmartin Let our Monday be an offering. Even when we don't wanna or don't feel like it, let our work be a sweet offering out of the heart song that He is worthy.

Whether we are folding laundry, typing an expense report, driving car pool, exercising, parenting, doing life with our friends, it is all worship Yes! worship when we live to make Jesus' name renown.
So let us RISE UP! today and ...
{let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that acknowledge his name. Hebrews 13:15} #JustRISEUP

sarahfmartin A word about jealousy and comparison. Oh this is a big one, right? Did you know that by being just who you are and doing just what God created you to do is pleasing to Him?
The problem is we don't elevate God's pleasure in us over the opinions of people. Oh I want to care more about what God thinks of me!! Let's rest in God's acceptance.
Let's cling to it rather than striving and conniving and coveting and chasing jealousy. I'm kind of done with it. Lord, please take it away!!

sarahfmartin I would be honored if you would consider it for your summer Bible study or beach read or poolside read or camping read or road trip read. It will be an encouraging word toward making a difference with your life as you make Jesus famous. ‪#‎JustRISEUP‬ can be found in most Christian bookstores and online as well. #JustRISEUP 6d

sarahfmartin #ontheblog: For when we draw near to Him, He draws near to us and thus draws OUT every good and beautiful quality so that we point back to HIS ultimate goodness and beauty and majesty and power and mercy and…and… and… That is the true identity crisis: when we resist this drawing out. We resist who God formed us to be. liveitoutblog.com #linkinprofile 6d

sarahfmartin Good Morning! Tuesday feels like Monday today...but good news! It's not Monday! "For the very essence of axious care is the imagining that we are wiser than God, and thrusting ourselves into His place to do for Him that which He has undertaken to do for us." (Charles Spurgeon, Morning and Evening) *What cares do you need to cast upon Him who is ABLE today?

sarahfmartin Puttering around the house this morning hoping someone will come and love this house as much as we have before we move on. In this weird in between stage.
Not sure what the dynamic will look like even a month from now. Have you been there before? I'm having a hard time thinking through how I will do this "make new friends" thing. Transition is awkward.
I have this theme running through my head, though. It's from John 15 and the word entangled comes to mind. Entangled in the presence of Jesus. My sweet little family entangled in one unit--as messy as we are--in worship and abiding as we walk one day at a time forward. Entangled. Might be a new book idea...

sarahfmartin Some of this jewelry has not seen the light of day in years. And there's more! Yikes! Time to purge and organize. What's your best junk jewelry organization tip? 2w
  •   marian.l.g Costume Pearls in a vase as decoration! Or if you're feeling strictly utilitarian, I hear a tackle box works. 2w
  •   sprinkleonglitter @sarahfmartin add some to an art journal page! 2w
  •   woodieswife22 I use an over the door shoe hanging system. The kind with mesh pockets. You have 20 or so pockets to use for necklaces and bracelets that aren't too fragile. I originally had it for shoes then didn't need it anymore so repurposed it for jewelry. I also put mine in clear vases too :) 2w
  •   kelliwommack I took mine to the office and shared it with the other women I work with. So fun to see it worn on someone else! 2w
  •   lynncowell I hang mine on a tie rack. 2w
