advent | day nine.

I’m here for Day 9 of #samjyogaadvent on @samj_yoga, and today’s theme is LOOK. One of my darkest, innermost struggles is one of shame, of feeling too broken, or too far gone. I often doubt that there’s anything left I can do within the Kingdom. I have even a fear of being seen and known…

It’s day 8 of #samjyogaadvent at @samj_yoga on Instagram, and it is the second Sunday of advent. Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; For You I wait all the day. (Psalm 25:5 ESV) Today, I encourage each of us to wait; to take pause, reflect,…

advent | day three.

I’m here for Day 3 of #samjyogaadvent ✨ and today’s theme is FORGIVE. I’m about to get really real for a second. A year and a half ago, I flipped my seemingly “perfect” Christian life upside down. Since then, I’ve been searching and recovering prices of myself that I’d lost along the way. My relationship…
