[ Arise Within You ]
Let's Go Higher Together!
"I plead to change my life just before I dream, and wake to realize the change is inside me."-WCAR
"As for me, I shall behold your face in righteousness; when I awake, I shall be satisfied with your likeness."-Psalm 17:15
It can become so easy to listen to the lies and live by the opinions of others. It's so much easier to get beat up on than stand back up sometimes, isn’t it? You're just tired. It can feel like too much. Holding on to your inner peace and standing on the rock can be difficult when you're “in your feelings". Personally, I have had a lot of life thrown at me, especially in my adult years, and have learned a few tricks along the way that TRULY helped me stand (and STAND FIRM) in my faith. I am by no means perfect in any of these things, I am just extremely violent with the truth of God's word and what it says about me as His child. I've learned how to be content in the moment and see BEYOND the battle. I've learned how to put God, myself, and my family FIRST and have watched it RADICALLY change my life. I used to treat and talk about myself so poorly without understanding how much that was actually affecting me on every level…until I WOKE UP. Then I stopped. I drew the line in the sand and said “I know there's more!” For my whole life, but definitely the past 5 years, I have been on a very intentional journey of self-discovery, exploring what it looks like to ARISE WITHIN myself and push past the lies, HOLDING FAST to the truth of what His word says and learning to harness the tools that He has given us on earth to use! Come with me and discover what it looks like for YOU to RISE WITHIN yourself; to be the best you can be living in a world full of uncertainty. Your dreams still matter. Your thoughts still matter. Your life still matters, no matter what the world or enemy has said. YOU ARE WORTH IT and I am here to be a partner in this journey with you. Together, let’s see what makes you come alive, what makes you believe that you are worthy, and how you can begin to LIVE ON PURPOSE.
Hello! My name is Greta Stearns. I am 31 years old… and no one believes me. Thankful for good skin genes I guess! Ha!
I live in upstate New York although, am originally from Michigan. I started traveling the U.S. and around the world for ministry when I was 19 and it wasn't until I was 26 when I moved to New York and rooted down again! I attended a School of Ministry in Georgia for 3 years where I completed my certificate and then later finished my Bachelors in Christian Leadership at Remnant Bible College in New York. From there I attended Paul Mitchell the School Michigan and became a licensed hair stylist. Shortly after that, I moved to New York to be married to the man I met at ministry school. I have been happily married to my husband Aaron for a little over 4 years! He is a Children's Pastor at the church we attend. We have a beautiful and crazy 3 year old named Aislynn. She is everything to us. Praying for more. I'm very excited to be licensed as a financial strategist/life insurance agent as well. I get to help many families find perfect policies that fit their budget with great coverage. I am in the process of building my team of agents as well and its an absolute joy! I love supporting local businesses and entrepreneurs in any way I can.
Stop thinking and talking about what you are going to do and DO IT!
God has set dreams in each and every one of our hearts for a reason and that is to live in faith and boldness to do it! Plant your seeds! God will bring the harvest! That's His job not yours!
"But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror. For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like. But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing." -James 1:22-25
