    STOREHOUSES Of HOPE

    Thanksgiving week is upon us — it’s the season to GIVE THANKS and yet this year has been anything but easy or one that I’d like to repeat. This year was certainly a record low for many of us — filled to the brim in the depths with disappointments, loss, changes of plans, heartache, lack of security, and so many pains. Everywhere we look it seems there is good reason to fear, complain, judge, condemn, and be angry — thankfulness hasn’t exactly been flowing off my tongue as a reflex this season. While “thankfulness” certainly hasn’t been my go-to attitude in 2020, I’ve been convicted of this verse over and over: “IN EVERYTHING — GIVE THANKS!” (1 Thessalonians 5:18) Meaning, even in the places of greatest despair and insurmountable loss — there must be reasons to give thanks. I wanted to understand this more! It must not be so much about my circumstances as much as it’s about celebrating and giving thanks for WHO our God is and WHAT He represents to us and does for us during these times of so much pain. I found myself digging more into the nature of our God and wanting to know more about who He is — His attributes, His character, His ways, His aspects.  And what I found built up my “spiritual muscles of thankfulness”, if you will. There is always cause for gratitude. Why? Because, our situations often pale in comparison when we list out His characteristics and features. The full scope of who He is is revealed and everything else seems to be overshadowed by His magnitude and inalterable goodness. Our God is omnipotent (all-powerful), omniscient (all-knowing), omnipresent (He is everywhere), wise, faithful, good, unchanging, gracious, just, merciful, loving, holy, sovereign, self-sufficient, righteous, and perfect.

    So — if gratitude is rooted in knowing what’s yours in Jesus and what you’re promised and assured in the midst of hardship…then — knowing the Truth and receiving it as applicable for yourself and for your circumstances will be founded upon trust — upon our surrender and sheer unmitigated faith in our God to deliver, defend, rectify, resurrect, redeem, restore, purpose and heal. It comes down to this — it’s simply WHO He is.

    So, lay claim at the feet of Jesus who CAN and WILL accomplish His good purposes for you! Find HOPE in His proactive ability to overturn this dark scene!

    This thanksgiving, I feel the Lord is telling each of us to come join Him at His table. No matter where you are today, I encourage you to simply pull up a seat at His table. I know this year has been toppling over with chaos, uncertainty, disasters and casualties. But, even if you are angry with Him or are confused or are filled with doubt — trust me, God isn’t afraid of your feelings — your emotions don’t scare him. God doesn’t invite you to the table so you “behave” or “act properly” — He invites you because He longs to have a relationship with you. This isn’t about “religion” — our God is a God of relationship — and we all know relationships aren’t based solely on the good times, but strengthened in the hardest of times. He doesn’t long to commune with you only in the benevolent seasons. So, even if it’s filled with yelling and screaming and crying — He welcomes you. So pull up a seat at His table! You’re encouraged to “wrestle” with it all in His presence. He already knows what’s going on inside your heart — might as well tell Him. 

    We do battle AT HIS table y’all — simply resting in His presence— now more than ever! We developed these Truth bracelets to serve as a reminder of where to run when things get hard, overwhelming, difficult, or seem never-ending! This virus seems to have taken so much from us and who even knows what else is at risk into 2021! But, the Lord knows and all He asks for is our trust! He continuously brings us back to the Truth — the life-giving, uplifting, encouraging, hope-filled, transformational TRUTH — which trumps any statistic or circumstance! His Word is more permanent than anything you may be facing. His character is more solid than anything we can find earth-side. He ushers in comfort, renewal, and peace as we surrender to Him. For His yoke is easy and it’s light — not heavy! He reminds us to take it day by day — AND that He doesn’t change day to day. Reset, rest, and go to His reliable table to do battle — a safe, enduring, consistent place to wrestle with the fear of the unknown, disappointment, and grief! Coming to His Table can look like quiet time with Him, just being still in His presence, devotionals, podcasts, or worship music — just come TO the table. Psalm 23:5 says that “He has set before you a table” — a table brimming, overflowing, dripping with nourishment, intimacy, fulfillment, life, joy, unchanging security, blessings, sustenance, renewal, restoration! A place where you come in weary and leave refreshed! Where you come in disheartened and leave ready to persevere.  Find hope, lasting encouragement and non-circumstantial peace at His Table! Every table set before us is "feast" -- an opportunity -- a time for growth -- to grow in love, in faith, in knowledge of Him, in perseverance, in joy!

    We may not know what’s being served up for us next, but we do know WHO we serve. I challenge you to get to know Him better. We must truly know Him before awe, reverence, respect and trust can develop. Yes, we remain in the middle of this mystery — but thankfully, we are walking with “The Author” (Hebrews 12:2). Walking with the One who knows, the One who is always and incessantly working on your behalf behind the scenes, the One who remains unconditionally faithful! The One who turns seas into highways (Exodus 14), graves into empty tombs (John 11, Luke 24), Jericho-style-walls into rubble (Joshua 6), chaotic storms into peace that passes all understanding (Mark 4:35-41), and brings us from deserts of desolation into the promised land over-flowing with abundance (Ezekiel 20:6)!

    “For the Lord is always good and ready to receive you! He’s so loving that it will amaze you — so kind that it will astound you! And He is famous for His faithfulness toward all. Everyone knows our God can be trusted; for He keeps His promises to every generation!” (Psalm 100:5)

    He keeps His promises to every generation! He keeps His promises in the middle of a global pandemic! He keeps His promises in the face of political division! He keeps His promises in times of insurmountable suffering! He keeps His promises when evil seems to be overcoming good!

    For He was faithful — even unto death — faithful past the point of betrayal, beyond being forsaken, forgotten, degraded, rejected and abandoned. And yet, He still died for His accusers. He is “famous for His faithfulness”! (Psalm 100:5)

    “For His faithfulness is like a shield!” (Psalm 91:4)
    “Through faith, we are shielded by God's power!” (1 Peter 1:5)
    “And let us hold unwaveringly to the HOPE that we confess! For the One who made the promise is trustworthy!” (Hebrews 10:23)
    “FAITH is the assurance of things hoped for — but the conviction of things not seen! For we live by faith, not by sight.” (Hebrews 11:1 & 2 Corinthians 5:7)

    When we focus our hearts on to what we’ve been given in Jesus — whatever season we may be in — choosing an outlook of gratitude can usher in the Lord to do great and mighty things in your life! Take time to look up today — to the Giver of all good things and hold tightly to this Promise: “As we continually GIVE THANKS to God we are building a gate -- a place of entrance and access — for the King of Glory to come into our current situation!” (Psalm 24:7) 

    Our family has been through some very dark days over the years — therefore these next lines come from living, knowing and clinging to His Nature as the only thing I knew to be more true and more permanent than my reality. In this very challenging time, if you are being asked to wait or you are walking through extreme pain — please know this — it is NEVER for nothing and you are NEVER alone through any of it. Y’all — our God IS a God of promises, abundance, of bountiful and overflowing blessings, of fruitfulness, of harvest and storehouses of good gifts to those who come to Him surrendered for help, healing, forgiveness, and redemption!

    My soul cries out with THANKSGIVING for every single blessing I have been given — each one utterly undeserved in its entirety.
    “I will GIVE THANKS to the Lord with my whole heart — I will never cease to declare and tell of all your wonderful deeds!” (Psalm 9:1)
    “For from His ABUNDANCE, we have all received, GRACE upon GRACE!” (John 1:16)
    “Oh, TASTE and SEE that the Lord is GOOD!” (Psalm 34:8)

    So yes....”In everything, give thanks!” (1 Thessalonians 5:18) — Because our GOD is good — and He is good ALL of the time. And in spite of all we see and all we’ve experienced — God IS at work! Because it’s WHO He is, because it’s WHAT He does, because it’s WHY He came, because His faithfulness toward you is eternally UNENDING — powerfully, continually and magnificently working and able to bring about GOOD — because HE said to TRUST Him — and there’s simply no other way! No one, but YOU Lord!

     

    Come what may, but NO MATTER what — my God remains on the Throne! Here at GT, our prayer and heartbeat is FOR REVIVAL —for you, your family, our city, our state, our nation, our world! These Truth Bracelets are just a small way to continually remind you throughout the day to have hope and to fall into grace!

    Feast on Him this season— and let’s shift our focus onto His attributes, provisions, and faithfulness. Come as you are to His rescuing arms, to a beautiful and plentiful place of true and lasting hope, peace and new mercies!

    “Give thanks to the Lord for He is GOOD, His faithful love ENDURES forever!” (Psalm 118:1)

    Happy Thanksgiving week to everyone of you,

    Weaving Beauty with Truth

    Launch of our TRUTH Bracelet Collection
    Amidst all that’s going on in our society today — COVID-fatigue, election-news-exhaustion (no matter what side of the isle), or just your average daylight-savings-time-draining…whatever it may be in your world — we each are weary, on-edge and looking for light at the end of the tunnel! We are longing for normalcy, assurances, and hope!
    Well, maybe I need to hear this today more than any of you all, but Jesus is the answer. No vaccine (however desperately necessary this is and I cannot wait for it to be a reality) and no politician (no matter if you are red or blue) can give us what Jesus can. Pandemic or not — did you know HE promises you “PEACE that passes ALL understanding”? (Philippians 4:7) YES! The full spectrum of peace at ANY time and in ANY season, conflict, problem or hardship. HE is the only one that gives us more faith (when we ask!) in the face of fear — faith that rises in spite of the facts on the ground. Supernatural FAITH that’s rooted in Him and grows in response to the dismal earth-side visuals. He is the only one that gives HOPE —“living and active HOPE” to be precise (Hebrews 4:12) — that eclipses every hopeless, despondent and most impossible of situations. He’s THE ONLY one full of grace that lavishes us with a LOVE that surpasses measure, transcends reason, and overshadows both death and the “law”.  
    No matter what season of life you are in, be encouraged that Jesus came here to “transform the Valley of Trouble into a DOORWAY of HOPE!” (Hosea 2:15) 

    HOPE that cannot be stolen and is fully reliant on HIS NATURE —not on what you can offer, bring to or do for Him. Through thick and thin, highs and lows, mistakes and triumphs, failures or feats…this means God remains a fiercely-loyal Promise-keeper to you! “For no matter how many promises God has made, they are ALL ‘YES’ through Christ Jesus!” (2 Corinthians 1:20) It’s the template of the Cross — victory from ashes, triumph emerging from loss, what looks like the end is actually the beginning — that’s unwavering HOPE! His Victory on the Cross cannot been revoked, altered, replaced, or changed — He overcame it ALL — so that now…who we are in Christ and what is promised to us through Christ cannot be taken from us no matter the circumstance or challenge. It’s untouchable and simply never at risk. Even in the midst of a global pandemic — your identity in Him — what He did for you and how loved you are — endures eternally! His Promises override, outweigh, supersede and trump any and all circumstances you may be facing! 🏻 Circumstances are ALWAYS changing, but the Lord God our ROCK is the ONLY thing that is unchanging, immovable, imperishable, unshakable, foundational; the only One who never fails us and is steadfast in delivering on all His promises! May the posture of our hearts be to FEAR NOT...because, GOD!  #hopeisntcancelled


    His mercies are new every morning. His promises always hold true. He is faithful even when we are not. Jesus came here to meet us where we are, to make us whole, to bring HOPE to the hopeless, to bind up the broken-hearted, to give us a spirit of JOY instead of mourning — to heal, revive, rebuild, redeem and restore us.

    Praying you look to THE ONE who NEVER changes to provide you with a “peace that passes all understanding”, with wisdom, comfort, rest, encouragement, joy, protection and SO MUCH HOPE! Praying these Truths wash over you fresh today!

    “May the Lord Himself — the Lord of PEACE — pour into you His peace in every circumstance and in every possible way. The Lord’s tangible presence be with you all!” (2 Thessalonians 3:16)

    This collection of wearable-reminder Truth-bracelets seemed particularly important and timely during this challenging, strife-filled, chaotic, grueling, dividing and uncertain season in our world today. The Lord specifically placed 5 words so palpably on my heart for this project! LOVE, JOY, PEACE, FAITH and HOPE! Some reflect fruits of the spirit, some reflect His nature, some reflect the greatest commandment and each bracelet encompasses things we each crave, need, want and must pass on to a lost and hurting world!


    Collection verses:

He will shelter you with His wings, FOR HIS FAITHFULNESS IS LIKE A SHIELD — a protective wall! No harm will overtake you; no illness will come near your home. For He will command His angels concerning you — to guard you in all your ways!” (Psalm 91:1-2, 4, 10)

    -“The Lord your God is in your midst; He is a warrior who can deliver! He takes great delight in you; He renews you by His LOVE; He shouts for JOY over you." (Zephaniah 3:17)

    -“A new command I give you: LOVE one another, JUST AS I have loved you! By this, everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you LOVE one another.” (John 13:34-25)-“But this I call to mind and therefore I have HOPE — the steadfast LOVE of the Lord NEVER ceases; His mercies are NEW every morning; great is HIS FAITHFULNESS!” (Lamentations 3:22-23)

    -“For you shall go out with JOY, and be led forth with PEACE!” (Isaiah 55:12)

    Each bracelet comes accompanied by a custom-made, GT-original, watercolor calligraphy scripture card.

    We can’t wait to unpack all these treasures in the Truth these coming weeks,

    The KEY to Freedom

    I am OVERJOYED to present to you our latest Gospel-focused project — and I just can’t wait to share with you the story and the heartbeat behind this treasured piece!

    It is with great anticipation and expectation, that I introduce to you our Freedom Key Necklace!
    I love how Jesus works, y’all! My friend, Emily Mock, had a vivid vision of seeing Jesus in front of her church wearing a key necklace. He picked up the key and put it into someone's heart. As He turned the key, their grave clothes fell to the ground instantly. Jesus went around to each person in the church, one by one, and unlocked their hearts. They began to shine bright with new life.

    I wept as she shared her story, yall! Jesus immediately pressed upon my spirit the revelation that He is the KEY to freedom! He unlocks our hearts, and then gives us the same key to wear to go unlock the hearts of others.

    Emily came to me with this idea of creating the same key necklace she saw in her vision of Jesus and I couldn’t start the sketches fast enough! YES, I thought! What a necessary and visual tool to encourage and bring so much hope to each and every one of us! Personal-Testimony-Jesus-Reminders — we must remember what we possess AND of where the Lord has rescued us from!

    Weaving beauty with Truth is both my greatest passion and joyful purpose — to use creativity, testimony and timeless jewelry to bring Jesus and the great hope of the Gospel to a lost and hurting world.


    Our mission here at GT:

    “Publish His glorious deeds among the nations. Tell everyone about the wondrous works He does!” (Psalm 96:3)

    Ok, here’s the good stuff — the breakdown of the meaningful details and the significance of each portion of the design:

    Royal Crown: The crown represents King Jesus, the King of Kings.

    Key: The key represents the opening into newness of life. Those who have authority carry keys.

    Cross: The cross at the bottom of the key represents the first access point Jesus has into the human heart. The Gospel message is the cross. There is a cross-shaped hole in our hearts that only He can fill.

    We, as Believers, hold the answer to the freedom our world is so desperately searching for. This necklace is to be worn as a physical reminder of the freedom we have in Jesus and the answer of hope we carry out into the world!

    "My beloved reached into me to unlock my heart. The core of my very being trembled at His touch. How my soul melted when He spoke to me!" (Song of Songs 5:4)
    "God considers all of humanity to be prisoners of their unbelief, so that He can unlock our hearts and show His tender mercies to all who come to Him.” (Romans 11: 32)

    Thrilled to finally be launching this beautiful piece! This necklace would make a perfect gift — for yourself or others — a wonderful conversation-starter and a tangible reminder of His Gospel — Jesus came to rescue and recover sinners — He came to “set the captives free”! (Isaiah 61:1) Praying you wear our Freedom Key and share this life-changing GOOD news with those around you — for we are not without hope!

    All glory to our Blessed Redeemer and Chain-Breaker,


     

    The Freedom Key Necklace starts at just $48! Our Key comes on a 30-inch chain and comes complete with 5 custom-made watercolor calligraphy scripture cards. Be sure to check out our fine Freedom Key Necklace also. 

    A portion of proceeds for The Freedom Key goes to the 501c3 nonprofit organization, For the One International.  After a mission trip to the villages of Panama and seeing children in poverty, Garrett and Emily Mock decided to meet the immediate need there and begin two feeding centers for malnourished children. Now, hundreds of children are fed one meal a day. Future plans are more feeding centers, building a home for orphans, and expanding their reach to serve children in other countries. Thank you for partnering with For the One! Visit www.FortheOneInternational.com.

    Golden Thread's Gratitude Campaign for Healthcare Workers

     FEARLESS on the Frontline

    THANK YOU to our HEROES!! Thank you for using your “gift” to serve our country during our greatest time of need! What would we do without you and your FEARLESS service? In May, we launched our GRATITUDE CAMPAIGN here at Golden Thread: FEARLESS on the Front Lines — based on our heart’s outpouring of thankfulness and just a small way we can #giveback to our healthcare workers! 

     As a former ICU nurse, I wanted to personally thank our active healthcare workers for serving our nation during this viral crisis! Thank them for fearlessly, sacrificially, lovingly and valiantly caring for our nation’s sick and hurting. 

    They put themselves in harm's way every single day, they put their own lives on the line in this war to save others and they are the real heroes of this pandemic!  Where would we be without their noble commitment and enduring dedication?

    In the face of fear, they showed up!

    In the face of the unknown, they rose to the occasion!

    In the face of shortage, they chose to persevere! 

    May we never forget their undaunted courage, the work of their healing hands, their many acts of comfort, protection, relief and support of our people during this global emergency! 

    We couldn’t let it go unsaid how grateful we are for them and for their service. It was an absolute JOY to gift our healthcare workers on the front-lines our best-selling FEARLESS Necklace (valued at $75)! The gift came in a BLUE box to represent their courage and the worldwide healthcare color of BLUE! 

    We hope they continue to wear this gift as a reminder of their FEARLESSNESS during our country’s greatest time of need!

    We’ve already given away almost 1,000 necklaces to healthcare workers all over the USA! If YOU are an active healthcare worker on the frontlines of this pandemic, we want to thank you with a free gift! To receive this gift, healthcare workers need to contact us at questions@goldenthreadshop.com for more information! (*While supplies last) #FearlessontheFrontLine

    “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve one another, as faithful stewards of the manifold grace of God!” 1 Peter 4:10

    We are beyond grateful for YOU and your service,

    Supporting Our Community During COVID-19

    As the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to have an increased impact on our communities, we want to take a moment to connect with you directly, and let you know we’re here for you and praying for you and your family!

    For you — our customers — we are thankful for your continued purchases and support! We are still up and running and shipping out orders — please keep shopping with GT and supporting our small business! We can send care-packages to loved ones under quarantine, including custom notes, encouragements, etc! Just let us know your needs! 


    As a nurse, mother and business owner, I want you to know that the health and safety of my GT Team is my utmost priority! We’ve shifted schedules, allowed employees to work from home and are following all CDC guidelines to keep both you and our team safe. For the safety of both you and our staff, our showroom will be closed until further notice. We will continue to ship your orders in a timely manner. Please bear with us, should delays in production arise. We deeply appreciate you and your patience as we navigate this together!

    We understand shopping for jewelry might not be at the top of the priority list right now, but we hope our continued emails and sales bring you encouragement and JOY!

    We feel as a Houston-based business, it is a duty and honor to support our local community! We have felt called to stand up and do something for our beloved community and hometown — to meet the immediate and desperate need, and be the hands and feet of Jesus!

    It’s a joy to rally around and to serve those in need right here in our city. We are heartbroken over the statistics the pandemic is causing in our community. With our school districts closed for the foreseeable future, the children that rely on meals at school will be struggling. One of the most significant impacts of the pandemic has been school closures. Without access to school meals, children lose a consistent source of healthy food each day. The Houston Food Bank will continue to work with school districts and local government agencies to ensure children who rely on school meals have access to food outside of the classroom.

    The Houston Food Bank is asking that local residents assist those who do not have reserves of food in the event of service disruptions and closures.

    "Hundreds of thousands of people are counting on the organization and its partners now, and this need will only heighten if the COVID-19 situation worsens," says Brian Greene, president/CEO of Houston Food Bank.

    Throughout the coming weeks, we are giving YOU both 20% OFF your entire order AND 30% OF ALL PROCEEDS from your purchase will go directly to the Houston Food Bank (a partner of Feeding America)!

    Shop 20% off site-wide until May 1st with code: COMMUNITY

    We are all in this together — so let’s rally together as a community and support those in desperate need! Please join our efforts in fighting hunger during this critical time! 

     

    "Praise be to the Father of mercies and God of ALL comfort, who comforts us in our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort we ourselves receive from God." 2 Corinthians 1:3-4
