Matthew 5:3 – Being Poor in Spirit

“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” Matt 5:3

A truly humble person is so poor in spirit that they trust God for everything and know that apart from Him they can do nothing.(Jn 15:5) Humility enables them to achieve greater things because they know God can achieve great things through them.  They trust God so much that God can use them to do things that defy common sense and display the mighty power of God for all the world to see.  When Christ called us to live a life being “poor in the spirit” he was not talking  about us being self-condeming or depressed but to realize our own spiritual poverty apart from Him. God wants us to see the infinite abundance that is available to those who seize the Kingdom of Heaven through a life of humility. (Matt 11:12)

My oily account @jesuscoffeeoilsandmascara shared the photos from an amazing event I got to attend with my mama this past weekend. Now I’m sharing some of our every day life photos from the weekend. It’s kinda weird honestly running two accounts now. In fact it’s on the list of something I didn’t think I’d do again. But I just thought it best to keep business over there and every day life on this account. Many of you who have been with me may not even know I’m an oily lady yet, maybe this post will send ya that way if you want to know more. If not bare with me this year as I navigate finding the right balance on both these accounts. Thanks to all the friends who have stayed with me here since the beginning almost ten years ago. I often miss my #interiordesign friends so much it hurts. Mama and I were talking and realized it’s been about four years now since I left that world to have a baby and stay home full time with my sweet #babyj indeed #timeflies Part of me wonders how I can incorporate the #design knowledge I gained in those years with @nancychalmers now with my oils and my adventures at home. It’s a brand new year! And I’m hoping with the momentum from the goal setting workshop we attended I’ll figure some things out for this year. These everyday photos include a Friday lunch date with my little man, my fur babies chilling inside together, my mom getting to play with Jase a unicorn rock and some time in the yard with the neighbors’ kids(a first YAY) - and these ordinary moments are truly the beginning of a best beautiful year right here where I am and I’m grateful. #happynewyear2019 #letsgo #dreaming #planning #lookingback #thinkingahead #makingplanstorock2019 #lovemybaby #lovemymama #gratitiude #everyday #thesemomentsmattertoo
