how to keep falling in love again & why it matters

a beautiful story of mutual rescue

 prepare to have your heart busted beautifully open. I was all in.

So — I’m telling you. Come be all in with me? 

If you didn’t read that post ^^ above … don’t leave the internet without watching this — best thing I’ve seen all week — and then, beg you, go read that ^^ post above…. Hero dad. Undone. This? Is unforgettably beautiful. And true.

I’ve only read about this a dozen times this week. I wanted to write about it… that one image of a dad with his arm out — struck something deep in me, in all of us: hero dads everywhere

on repeat here this week:

you are loved more than you know — more than you could ever hope for

…the stress, the fear, the panic?
Isn’t worth it — because the CEO of the universe’s with you.
He’s the expert pouring some real strength into you right now.
He’s the coach helping you see the next thing, do the right thing, overcome the hard thing right now.
He’s the friend holding you up with the steadying warmth of His hand right now.
When you say, “The Lord is the strength of my life”
you get to say, “There is nothing to be stressed about in my life.”
Fear can’t get to us, panic can’t upend us, worry can’t undo us. 
Stress doesn’t unload today of its struggles.
It undermines today of its strength.
And prayer always erases panic.

That’s all for this weekend, friends.

Go slow. Be God-struck. Grant grace. Live Truth.

Give Thanks. Love well. Re – joy, re- joy, ‘re- joys’ again
