Keep Up With Me on Instagram @cassiedilly
“We cannot seek God's glory and our own at the same time. If any part of our heart is divided, seeking to win rather than seeking to wonder at His goodness, let’s quit right now.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This morning I was listening to a podcast with @jessaconnolly and her words stopped me right in my tracks. Do you ever have those moments when someone else gives you the exact words for how you were feeling? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Here’s the thing: I started off strong and full-speed ahead last summer on building my new website, filling the blog with words & fumbling my way with sharing that passion with this corner of the internet. But by the time I got to the fall, I felt drained, tired & distant from the Lord. So I quit. I've been known to oscillate between loving Instagram and deleting my account entirely and I couldn't seem to figure out why I struggle with this intense back and forth so much. Especially after feeling so certain that it was a calling from God. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "Am I wanting to win, or am I wanting to worship?" ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Jess's words stopped me cold and for the first time, I knew where my real struggle lied. Whenever I was feeling the heaviness of Instagram and the desire for simpler/smaller/less, it's because my heart wasn't in the right place. I saw it as a means to an end (accomplishing a dream + goal) rather than using it for worship. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The urge to write and share the words He gives me has felt all the more real and alive and present lately. So does the drain and fear of Instagram. But this charge to focus on worship over winning feels empowering, & encouraging, and so I have decided to cling to that over the fear of how Satan wants to twist spaces that can be used for good news & God’s glory ✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.” -Philippians 1:6

30 weeks ✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Hard to believe we’re here. My belly is getting larger, breathing is getting harder, baby movements are getting stronger. And every little thing makes me more in awe of God’s creation and design. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #babydillyinseptember #teamdilly
