You can make many plans but the Lords purpose prevails them all.
Dear Fashionable Friends,
Today I opened my bible and out fell a note card with a scripture I’d written down and it said, “When we get together I want to encourage you in your faith, but I also want to be encouraged by yours.” Romans 1:12
This particular scripture spoke volumes to me. I remember writing this note card in my college apartment 3 years ago as I was evaluating the relationships in my life at that time. I wanted to encourage those around me in their faith but I also wanted to be poured into as well. Today this scripture speaks to me in a completely different context.
I have this platform where I get to share my thoughts and style with amazing women everyday! I want to do more! I want to encourage you too in your faith! It’s so easy to talk about yourself, clothes and whats going on in your life. But when do I tell you how great He is and the amazing things he is doing in my life?
We all started off the new year with our own goals and plans but did we include the Lord in these plans? One of my favorite scriptures is “You can make many plans but the Lords purpose prevails them all.” Proverbs 19:21 If you have been following me for a while or even know me in real life then you know that I am an absolute control freak. I love making plans and I love planning whats to come in my life. But guess what – he prevails every time!
I just want to encourage you all to take a step back this week as you write your goals and ask the Lord what he thinks!

So you might not know where you are headed at this exact moment, but I can assure you that the Lord knows. And darling, he is holding your hand. He is breathing sweet life into each aspect of your present and future. Even in the darkest areas of your thoughts he is shining his light. So hold on, hold on tight and never let go! His love is everlasting and he will never leave nor forsake you. Let Him gracefully lead you where you need to be.
Catch you on the flip side,
