True Inspirations| Joanna.
So if you've read my Currently in February post, you learned that I love watching Fixer Upper on HGTV. I love interior design and decorating and have grown to love this show. After watching the first season of the show and finishing up the second season not too long ago, I think I can put Chip and Joanna Gaines on my list of some my favoritre people whom I've never met. I love that their love for each other and their children is evident. I love Chip's sense of humor, although sometimes dry, and Joanna's personality and genuine nature. I recently came across a video of Joanna giving a her testimony of sorts, at The Gathering at Baylor University in Texas.
Take a look:
Beautiful isn't it? It's amazing what God does with our gifts and talents. If we are only willing to surrender our fears and the lies about ourselves that we've accepted, can we walk in f r e e d o m. The freedom to take the step and move forward in our dreams, whatever those dreams may be—a business, parenthood, job position, adoption, traveling, or whatever it may be. Watching this 4 minute video gives me hope. It sparks the flame within me to burn a little brighter. It i n s p i r e s me to trust God with my own dreams for Sincere Touch Photography. Lately, I've had some ideas that seem a little crazy but maybe they are seed thoughts that will blossom into something amazing and beyond my dreams. I am definitely feeling excited. Joanna mentioned in the video that at one point she felt God clearly say to her:
"Joanna, if you trust me with your dreams, I am going to take Magnolia further than you could have ever dreamed, so trust me."
Such a beautiful thing. I would encourage you to grab a piece a paper and a pen write this down:
"__________, If you trust me with your dreams, I am going to take __________ further than you could have ever dreamed, so trust me." -God
