The fun things about this outfit:
Shirt - High School, Jeans - Buckle, Shoes - Ross
Ok, I'm so grateful for the ladies who took over last week here on Patterned Love!
The week at camp with 16 amazing teenage girls was just that...Amazing!
I'm excited to say that a few girls made a decision to start following Jesus.
In their decisions it reminded me every moment of the impact Jesus has made in my life.
There is in fact newness after destruction.
There is fresh air and light where darkness once strangled me.
There is never ending hope where bitterness once grew.
There is love that has replaced hatred.
Jesus truely makes me new each day! And while I know that many would rather keep compartmentalized, I cannot. This is, most days, a daily outfit recording blog. But I cannot seperate my loves and my passions into tiny boxes. They need to be interwoven in my life and always overflowing into each other! And Jesus is the first on both of those lists. My first love! My deepest passion!
His love never gives up.
It never runs out.
Now this I say and testify in the Lord, that you must no longer walk as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their minds. They are darkened in their understanding,alienated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them, due to their hardness of heart. They have become callous and have given themselves up to sensuality, greedy to practice every kind of impurity. But that is not the way youlearned Christ!— assuming that you have heard about him and were taught in him, as the truth is in Jesus, to put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires, and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.
