"Merely hearing God's law is a waste of your time if you don't do what He commands. Doing, not hearing, is what makes the difference with God." -Romans 2:13- (MSG)
I've always been a big believer in putting faith into action. No action = no faith. You can hear something, believe it, agree it and think it's true, but until that belief produces an action or change, your faith or belief is really just an idea (go read the book of James for some super practical advice on putting your faith into action!). We have our salvation and freedom because Jesus put into action the ultimate sacrice - His death on the cross. Had He just thought about it and not actually done it, we would all be lost! But He did the hardest thing anyone has ever done, and because of that, we have this amazing gift of total and ultimate love that frees us and allows us to help others also know His love. This is a gift y'all! A crazy beautiful gift!
So here's my question for you today. What has God put on your heart that needs to be put into action? What have you been saying you will do, but have not done yet? I want to encourage you to do it today! Don't hold back sweet friend. Bring it to life! If He is telling you to go, then do it! And don't give fear a chance to creep in. This world has enough people that talk. It needs more doers that are willing to show the world what real love is! And can I just say that I am right there with you? I certainly don't always do this right. I'm a thinker and super introspective. It takes massive effort for me to put the dreams in my heart into action. I fall, hold back, and sometimes let fear or shame get the best of me. But the greatest blessings in my life have come when I move in faith and trust that where ever I am called, He will provide and show up.
I'm cheering you on friends and running this race right beside you! Let's put our faith in action today.

Curling has always been a big part of my life and is a big part of why I decided to come to Canada. My host family also curled and encouraged me to play for my school and my community. When I went back home to Denmark, I joined a talented team. We won the Danish championships and qualified for the Olympics, where we were up against team Canada and won! (Sorry to my Canadian friends for that!) I checked my email, and it was flooded with messages from friends in Nova Scotia and across the world who I met through the NSISP. This program was such a wonderful experience, and a big reason why I can now call myself an Olympian. #NSISP20thAnniversary#NSISP#dreamscometolife
Home is where dreams come to life. What are you inspired by? Last night I dreamt that I was running with the bulls, splashing on an exotic beach, and exploring architectural wonders. What an inspiring DREAM! Makes me feel focused, driven, and INSPIRED! #beautifulspokaneliving#dreamscometolife#spokanerealtor
