Psalm 139

You search out my path and my lying down and are acquainted with all my ways.
Even before a word is on my tongue, behold, O Lord, you know it altogether.
You hem me in, behind and before, and lay your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high; I cannot attain it.
v. 3-6

If I say, "Surely the darkness shall cover me, and the light about me be night," even 
the darkness is not dark to you; the night is bright as the day, for darkness is as light with you.
For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. 
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Wonderful as your works; my soul knows it very well.
v. 11-14 

How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! 
If I would count them, they are more than the sand. I awake, and I am still with you.
v. 17-18

Search me, O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts! 
And see if there be any grievous way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting!
v. 23-24

BTS ~ Sarah Mulder Jewelry Shoot

a few behind the scenes photos from a recent shoot I did for Sarah Mulder Jewelry!
at the start it felt a bit strange to step into a fairly girly role for a shoot, as i don't normally
wear much jewelry... or have wavy hair... or often wear skirts, etc.
but in the end, i decided it was refreshing.
something different from my norm.
 and we had a blast shooting these.
just a really solid team.
my co-model was Bailey- a real gem of a gal [and insanely beautiful]...
will share the actual photos with you all once they're in!

& just a liiiiiittle sneak...

photography - Kim James
make up - Katie Elwood

PS. you may have noticed that my site doesn't quite look the same as it did last week.
simply because my dear, talented friend, Aina, made some changes- 
some creatively wonderful changes...
will update you all on that soon...

all's well~

after work this evening i had what may have been the quickest caffeine date w/ skylar & viranlly. 
but nonetheless it was great to be in their company.
we shared laughs... & my cookie.

last night was "Delve" at my church.
a day of fasting and praying and coming together in the evening to worship and pray. 
been going through a ton of challenges lately, but just relying on the Lord to get me through it all.
instead of relying on my own strength- just remembering to lay it all before Him and allowing Him to work out all the circumstances in my life, for His glory

...i'm very blessed.
the people i've been surrounded by who've been challenging me in my faith.
encouraging me in my faith.
praying on me.
very thankful.

real talk.

some verses that have really helped me over the past few days:

fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, 
I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Isaiah 41:10

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. 
Proverbs 3:5

Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. 
Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.
Philippians 2:3-4

It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man.
Psalm 118:8

Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. 
Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act.
Psalm 37:4-5

For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? 
If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ.
Galations 1:10

But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; 
his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
Lamentations 3:21-23
