sarahfmartin Lord, my prayer today is that You take my heart to lovely places. I want to thrive in Your beauty, Your goodness. I want to overflow with grace and that is only possible if my heart is entangled in You alone-the loveliest place of all. Amen! 2d

sarahfmartin A prayer for Monday:
14 “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. {Matthew 5:14-16}

Let our light shine bring from our home and then let that brightness pour forth from our home to those around us surrounded in darkness.

But Lord! Make it ever so clear when my light wanes because of my bad attitude or my sin. Help me to see when I am the one squelching the light in my household and. Oh that our lives be a reflection of Your glory and goodness as they see You in our love, our worship, our actions. Shining straight to You, Jesus. Your Spirit shines through us. Amen!
5d

So many wonderful women sharing and inspiring each other to live out their influence right where they are. So good. For more check out @influencenet 5d

sarahfmartin After a morning in the sticky hot garage sifting through boxes and junk, when hubby says go take the afternoon by yourself you bet I jumped at that! Coffee to learn about a local ministry, massage that I won in a raffle, sushi, and watercolor paints. Yes. God you are so good to me. 7d

sarahfmartin 1 I will lift my praise above everything to You, my God and King! I will continually bless Your name forever and always.
2 My praise will never cease— I will praise You every day; I will lift up Your name forever.
3 The Eternal is great and deserves endless praise; His greatness knows no limit, recognizes no boundary. No one can measure or comprehend His magnificence. {Psalm 145 The Voice}

A lifestyle of praise means we reflect on God's goodness and His beauty no matter the activity. With a perspective of praise, even weeding an overgrown bed of rose bushes turns into a gratefulness of the ability to get down on my hands and knees. The gratefulness that even in mindless tasks a communion with the Almighty is possible.

sarahfmartin Whew! Moving a getting a new house set up is not cheap. Feeling the tightening of a budget coming on. God is showing me a new perspective on this, though.
My first prayer was for God to provide-which He always does. But things shifted in my heart...what if I prayed not for monetary provision, but for a change of heart and perspective on "things." Lord! Strip my heart for the need of things and give me a deeper yearning for Your goodness, Your beauty...flat out YOU. Expecting contentment in that which He already provides in abundance...that which has eternal and Kingdom value. : @strovenfive (Jessie Stroven)

sarahfmartin On this Friday we might be inundated with news alerts, smart phone notifications, texts, tags, selfies. May we react out of grace-filled, worship-full hearts knowing we are called to Bold Faith AND Servant Love. Both are possible. When entangled in God's presence, seeking Him as our Messiah--not the government, not social media, not even those closest to our hears will validate--HE saves. HE fulfills. HE makes sense. Both are possible. Boldness and Servant LOVE when we wrap our entire existence around Christ. 1mon
