After tasting your favorite dessert, chances are, you wouldn’t want to choose to eat an ice cube instead. No way! >
Give me blackberry cobbler + ice cream all day, everyday!
The sad truth is: a lot of us settle for the “ice cube life” because we haven’t experienced the sweetness and fullness of our favorite rich dessert.
Similarly, experiencing full joy, an unleashed grace for myself and others and a craving for justice wouldn’t be the same if I hadn’t experienced heartbreak, the disgust of my own sin or the consequences of injustice.

Soooo let’s trade the mediocre type of life for the rich treat he’s prepared for us by:
1. Seeking our hearts to find the places we’ve settled, found poor habits or have sin we’ve tried to justify.
2. Setting aside some moments for the Holy Spirit to remind us of the inheritance we have in Christ.
3. Turning away, asking for accountability and living a John 10:10 life.

I am an online encourager based out of Birmingham, AL that's obsessed with my girls and sharing bits and pieces of my life. I wear a lot of hats these days including mama to two boys, military wife, blogger, podcast host and more. You can find me behind the microphone at Real Talk with Rach where we talk about everything from jeans to Jesus, playlists to pop culture, the good and the grief and everything in between.
