 … today’s a fresh mercy and you’re being remade & made new, and He’s cupping your chin right now & turning your face toward His and the sun:

“My loyal love for you can’t run out, My merciful love for you could never dry up. They’re created new for you every single morning. My faithfulness to you is great.” [Lamentations 3:22 MSG] Yesterday’s packed away with grace, and Today’s a fresh day with fresh hope, fresh possibilities…
Because the thing is? What looks like it’s falling apart — may actually be falling together.

When morning breaks,
it breaks all of the mistakes of yesterday,
breaks right through our dome of dark —
so all His fresh mercies can flood in.

[excerpted from our little Facebook community … come join us?]

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
