Do not despise the days of small beginnings, because God rejoices to see the work begin. Zechariah 4:10. 👊🏼💕.
.
Before we started our YouTube channel this week, we prayed about it for a year. And by praying about it, maybe I overanalyzed it for a year – Fedrick was ready to “do the thing.” But, I had many excuses. Basically, waiting for perfection to shoot down from heaven and make it feel good to begin. Waiting for someone to approve of my calling. But, God says that He has equipped us and given us every tool we already need to start. .
.
Some people will think you do not have the right equipment, the best sound, the perfect wardrobe, the experience, their permission, the most expensive camera, the most polished performance, whatever – God didn’t say get perfect before you start or depend on Human approval. Because if so, we wouldn’t partner with Him or lean on His strength. 🙌🏼 There would be no room for his glory to flow through the imperfect cracks. We would be haughty and prideful because of our talents and gifts and forget He gave them to us. Today, if you are waiting for perfection. Squash it. It’s never going to come. You have to risk looking like a crazy person and let go of the desire to be perfect to do anything creative for God. .
.
I’m happy to be on the other side of my fear of perfection. I just want to be obedient to what God is saying. That is worth it all. And, when we do that – we become a little better in our craft than the day before. Because if someone saw Jesus through you stepping out. Job well done. 👋🏼 #goforit
It’s very rare that the only plans my Hubs and I have on the weekend are: attend church. Thankful for just going wherever the wind blows 💨aka @shakeshack & @northparkcenter. 🙌🏼 And this is my I have no plans #ootd.

YOU ARE READY, but maybe you don’t know you are. It’s a phrase I’ve been encouraged with a multiple times in the past few months. So, I’ve been receiving these words as truth. And... I’m sitting here feeling YOU should too. 👋🏼You are ready to step out with the tools and resources God has given you and WORK that thing in your heart (don’t just sit on it). You’ve had all the coffee dates asking advice about it. It’s been confirmed in your heart more times than you can count. You wake up thinking about it and go to bed dreaming about it. Maybe you’ve told no one and maybe you keep talking about it to everyone (in which, they are all thinking if this girl just don’t do something about this! 🤦🏻‍♀️) .
.
Anyways, I️ know how you feel. I’m right there. But, I️ want to be known for sharing my creative gift not hiding it for the quote unquote perfect moment - because it doesn’t exist. Don’t you?!! 🙌🏼 (welp, something is a brewing over here and it’s not this coffee ☕️... stay tuned) 💕 #somethingnew

I’ve been off the gram a few days because of a very important date: planning & hosting my sister’s @andrea.bevill baby shower. 🌿🌱👶🏻 Loved getting to have family & all her friends in my house on Saturday - plus chef-ing it up & decorating . (Tablescape done by my creative Mom.👍🏼)

We will never fulfill our destines if we have undue concern over what people think. Let them think what they want. .
.
God wants us to live with confidence and approach life boldly. Being indecisive is neither. Make a decision today to start being decisive. It will never happen if you don’t. It may be a bold move for you if you have spent a lot of your life in fear and indecision, but it is necessary if you want to really enjoy a life of peace. Indecision is not a peaceful place. .
.
Put your confidence in Christ 🙌🏼 and who you are in Him, not in what people think of you. We cannot base our worth on what others have said or how they have treated us. .
.
Know yourself! Know your heart, and don’t wait for other people to dictate to you the truth about your value. Don’t assume you are wrong every time someone does not agree with you. Believe God’s wisdom dwells inside of you. Believe YOU can make decisions. (@joycemeyer - In Pursuit of Peace Book 📖) - Y’all what decision do you need to make today?!! #dontprocrastinate #preachingtothechoir

There is nothing warmer than two friends sharing their hearts face to face. / ☕️Meeting up, being intentional, taking time out of their lives to really listen and share. Ladies, I️ love me some social media... but, it will never replace these coffee dates. I️ will never know the dreams, fears, heartache, celebration, journey, love, laugh or cry of a friend from a perfectly edited photo. As pretty as they all are.
.
I️ challenge you this week. Ask someone to share a meal with you, a coffee, a smoothie, whatever. Just make sure it’s off the internet. Hey, it could be someone your friends with on this platform that you wish were real-life friends. #itsworthit

THIS GRAM is dedicated to @hpiork, my amazing BFF, the one who provided me with all my insta-story content. 💕🎥 The queen of spontaneous song and a joyful spirit. Is it her birthday?! You must be wondering. No, it’s just the day our 2.5 years of working side-by-side comes to an end. 😭The finale of a glorious, life changing chapter. Everyone deserves a friend like Holly - loyal, beautiful, courageous, life-giving & someone that always points you back to Christ. Basically, Wonder Woman. I’ll miss her. #newthingsahead #friendshipgoals

This moment in Chicago reminded me of Luke 14. Words that forever changed me years ago. 🌿I’m so thankful for this experience set up by the team at @wcagls / I had a “friend come up to the front” moment and I always want to be in awe when God sets this up - not in a place of “whatever-ness” because I am so used to it. .
.
“When you’re invited to dinner, go and sit at the last place. Then when the host comes he may very well say, ‘Friend, come up to the front.’ That will give the dinner guests something to talk about! What I’m saying is, If you walk around with your nose in the air, you’re going to end up flat on your face. But if you’re content to be simply yourself, you will become more than yourself.” .
.
Then he turned to the host. “The next time you put on a dinner, don’t just invite your friends and family and rich neighbors, the kind of people who will return the favor. Invite some people who never get invited out, the misfits from the wrong side of the tracks. You’ll be—and experience—a blessing. They won’t be able to return the favor, but the favor will be returned—oh, how it will be returned!—at the resurrection of God’s people.””
‭‭Luke‬ ‭14:10-14‬ ‭MSG‬‬

This morning was so special with @wcagls team, the amazing @kimmcandrews & getting to sit in a living room with the beautiful @sniequist chatting all things HOSPITALITY, then sharing stories and having a meal together. 🥖🍳Oh, my heart! .
.
Hospitality is an invitation - not about perfection but presence. Perfection does not make people feel loved & seen. -
Hospitality is when people leave your home feeling better about themselves than better about you. 🙌🏼💕

You have a photobooth at your wedding, you will get your money’s worth just from the amount of times we get in there. No shame. 📷🎥 @awdubois & Ben what a gorgeous wedding! We love y’all. 💓 #letsduboisthis

I’ll never forget the day in 2007 when God asked me to set aside music. I was sitting on my bed, journaling. I had spent the previous few years recording, making tracks (ha! Yes it’s true..beat master J 🎧) connecting with labels, artists... whatever the “grind” was, I was going to do it. At the time it was all r&b, soul, hip-hop.... that was my world (can you believe it?). I wasn’t following Jesus, I wanted him to bless “my thing”. It wasn’t working. That day in ‘07, I wrote down what He said: “Jaclyn, you will sing for my Glory. You will point people to me. And you will not do it alone. I will connect you with other young people that I’ve called to do the same thing, but I need you to let go completely first & come follow me”. I did argue & what I argued was “God, I don’t even like Christian Music”. Ha!🤣 Because that’s what I thought he was talking about. Worship is a lifestyle. And I’m so thankful my steps are ordered by Him. Thankful that when He asks us to let go of something... the promise of His best follows. And He is good on his promises. P.s. I didn’t see this promise come to pass until 2013, so if you are still waiting be encouraged. (📷: @abrahanny )

It’s not enough to keep the dreams & creativity rolling around in your thoughts. Eventually you need to release them. Even if it is only for one person to hear or see. But, today you should just start with at least one thing. You can think something to death – just letting it fly around in your imagination day after day. All that goodness just stuck in your head. Nobody is limiting you, but you. Think about this: people are waiting to sing your songs, hang your art in their rooms, or find hope from the words you write out in a book. You are God’s masterpiece. “He was so eager to make you, so He could live through you." 👍🏼 DO IT. (Now I'll reread what I typed 3x to encourage myself!) What's the thing you keep on talking about, dreaming about, but never put to action?!

It's a glorious feeling to finally meet Fall again in Texas. 🌿🍂🌱🍁🌾 I know, I know we are all talking about it. But, it's bonding us. It's the adult version of "first day of school" photos. 😏#fallfashion #fallstyle
