Top New Stylist

This morning I opened up the weekly e-mail from my new company Keaton Row to find out I am the Top New Stylist! 
I certainly didn't expect that! 
As some of you may know I worked really hard to get into the Fashion Industry. 
I worked hours upon hours for free just to get a taste of what it is all about. 
At the beginning of my career it seemed to be a lot of struggle and strife. 
I was attempting to do it all on my own. 
Then I got pregnant with baby E. 
I felt like my career was over. 
I prayed, God, if you want me here, like I feel you do, show me Your way. 
I laid it at His feet. 
This is when it became easy. 
Jobs found me. 
After my mom passed away I began to pray again. 
Lord, give me something positive to focus on. 
That's when Keaton Row found me. 
I'm learning when I quit trying to carry it all on my own, God shows me His way. 
And His way is certainly above my way. 
So God, humbly, I thank you. 
Let this small success be a reflection of how great, You alone are. 

For as the Heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways,
and my thoughts than your thoughts. -Isaiah 55:9

Savior and Royalty the only hope for me//

Jesus, you are the King of my Heart! 



Every morning (and somedays evening...) as I get my day started (or finished)  I have a quiet(ish)
{sometimes loud} time where I seek the Lord's word. 
First, I check my e-mail to see what is the scripture of the day from K-Love, a radio station I used to listen to in Midland. 
Then, I read my Proverbs 31 e-mail. 
Next, I open my Bible App and read the scripture there- some days the full chapter- some days just the verse. 
Last, I open up my ibooks App and read my daily "Jesus Calling" devotional. 
I try to ask God, what is it that You have for me today? 
I can sometimes feel a TUG in my heart as I read one of these. 
Today was a tug day. 
The first scripture I read was (from K-Love):
You are the salt of the earth. But what good is salt if it's lost it's flavor?
Matthew 5:13
{You are the light of the world, a city set on a hill cannot be hid. Matthew 5:14}
Then, I read (The daily Bible App scripture):
Be wise in the way you act towards outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. 
Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone. 
Colossians 4: 5-6
Scriptures I've heard a thousand times but today I needed to know more about "salt" and it's purpose biblically. 
I learned that SALT is unique and is the only mineral we ingest and that it is a necessity of life. 
Every cell in our body is is bathed with salt solution. 
Salt in the biblical days was extremely valuable- as valuable as gold! 
I learned that salt preserves corruption. 
Salt represents endurace and purity.
So to loose one's saltiness would be to be unsuccessful as a disciple- to be in the world- corrupted as opposed to being in the Gospel and pure of heart. {This is a warning to be on guard- to be in the world but not OF the world.}
To be seasoned with salt would mean to be at peace with one another. The salt refers to the goodwill of positive relationships between people. 
Salt is representative of God's discipleship - God's purpose fulfilled through us.
I asked one of our BFF's and pastor John about salt and he sent over a sermon he wrote about it.
Another very interesting point about Salt is that it makes you thirsty.
So if we are the salt of the earth, are we making people around us thirsty for God?
'Are we making ourselves thirsty for God?'
As Christ followers we should create a hunger and a thirst for Christ in others as well as ourselves.
Another awesome point John made is about salt being a preservative.
"No matter what the enemy tries to do to hurt, corrupt or harm Gods peopleHE CANNOT SURVIVE A SALTY ENVIRONMENT…"
Who knew salt was so important???
All this time I've been avoiding salt so I won't be bloated!!!
Lord, I pray that You season me with salt and that I will never loose my flavor.
Thank you Lord for teaching me more about your word!
This is just the little bit I have learned, and I am so interested to learn more!
Here's to lifetime of listening to the Lord reveal more about His word to us!
