monday encouragement {vlog}

I wanted to sit down and chat with you guys and kind of give you an update about where we are going next with what we talked about last week. I totally had to fight myself to keep from re-recording this video for many reasons, one of which is that I can't keep myself from crying like a baby at the end. So, with that, I apologize in advance for bawling in my vlog. ha! I love you guys!!  :)



I'll be posting our giveaway winner later today! I hope you all have a great week!!

Mandy, thank you for posting this today! It's so inspiring to see how moved you are by the Spirit! I love visiting your blog everyday because I know in one way or another you'll encourage me. Today you encourage me to want to walk even closer with Jesus. Your enthusiasm and love of God is infectious!

What a wonderful heart for the Lord! You made me cry, too! I wish you lived next door so that I could soak up more of your fire! Thank you for the inspiration and I love you, too!

It is so nice to see others who love the Lord as much as I do. God Bless you and I will be praying for you. God is so good.

I agree, thanks for not re-recording! It brought me to tears as well! God is near, he is real, and he loves you (and me!). I'm praying for you because I know that once you start speaking truth, the enemy will be there to attack.


Paul reminds us (several times) but specifically in 1 Corinthians 10:12 to brace yourself if you think you are standing firm cause something is gonna come your way! Then on in vs 13 it says, "13 No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it."

Thanks for being real =)

Thank you for sharing Mandy! God's Word is the only remedy for our sin, and it is, as the scripture says, "... living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart." ~Heb. 4:12

Amy said...

you are wonderful! I cannot wait to see where this takes all of us. I look forward to the online stuff you are talking about and I will be praying He gives you the tools to take it there!

Mandy, what a beautiful moving of the Holy Spirit. I love how tender you are to God's goodness...what a great reminder to people who walk with Him, but have grown away from being so close to Him. I am thankful for you.
Keep hearing from the Holy Spirit and I look forward to seeing what God will do through you! xoxo

Mandy... a surrendered heart is a beautiful thing. Be not ashamed of shedding tears for He saves each one in His bottle. They are never wasted. Keep on, keepin' on... you are on a great journey.
