#morethanaframe: TRUTH



This week's #morethanaframe prompt was all about TRUTH. I love seeing the different interpretations of the prompt and diving into each of your lives alongside you. It's so special that we have a place to come and open up honestly. A place where we can find love, support, and those going through similar seasons. I'm so excited for what this community has become!



Can I talk a little truth here?? It's long, but it's full of truth. I've been less than committed to my Bible study over the past few weeks. Actually, that's a lie--I've been completely absent and it shows in my life. I'm impatient, distracted, and unkind. Truth is, I just feel like I can't get it all together...when one area of my life is thriving, another is suffering. Where is my balance? Can I be the "perfect" woman? As I read through Proverbs 31 this morning, it seems picture perfect, but a goal that I'll never achieve. I mean, I can barely work 3-4 nights a week, make my marriage a priority, and keep a house clean...much less make dinner every night, be a good friend or attentive sister/daughter...and thinking of adding kids to the mix throws it over the edge. How do women do it? No wonder we're all burned out. But then God pours His freedom over my heart and makes me realize only in Him will I feel worth...that this isn't a checklist for what it takes to have it all together...that this Proverbs 31 woman isn't the only goal I need to strive for, because she is imperfect, just like me. "This woman is not the goal--Christ is the prize we seek." @lifelivedbeautifully // I'm diving head first and whole heart into LLB Proverbs 31 study with every intention of turning my eyes to the cross and realizing that I CAN be a woman who has it all together, a woman of courage, ambition, compassion, and grace, just like the Proverbs 31 woman. All because of Jesus, not because of my own works. He holds it all together. My identity is in Him alone. #LLBproverbs31 #saturatedinscripture 🙌🏻💗📖 #morethanaframe #truthtalk

This week's #morethanaframe prompt is #truth. And if I'm being completely truthful I would have to admit that I have a serious struggle with my own identity. Sometimes I look in the mirror or at pictures and don't recognize the face looking back at me. I wear so many hats in a single day and it's easy to lose myself. But the more I think about who and what I want to be, the same notion keeps coming to mind. And it's scary to me. So much so that I don't think I've ever really said the words out loud. But the truth is, more than anything now, I want to be a mother. Wow. Just typing that statement is difficult. I'm afraid of what that means. The responsibility. The fact that it won't be easy for me to conceive like it is for so many. It's scary, but when I think about who I really am and who I want to become, this is the #truth that echoes in my heart. It will be exciting to see what the future brings.
