these future Olympians share some good good words here
love what you do
a chain of giving – with no stopping in sight
“Understand that having problems is not an excuse to give up – just an opportunity to fight harder and win… I won today. Today, I am a winner. My mishap does not define me. It does not limit me. It just helps the fighter in me stay alive.”
…. these days kinda leave you thinking that we’ve never needed this more than we do right about now. Fill the mall. Be one of a million standing for Jesus in DC in just 2 weekends — on 07.16.16.
Together 2016 is the day our generation will meet on the National Mall to come together around Jesus in unified prayer, worship, & a call for catalytic change.
We’re all coming together with as many people as possible — people who believe Jesus changes everything.
If you believe #JesusChangesEverything? Be there — make your mark, be heard & tell the world: #JesusChangesEverything. Can you join us? This is historical: https://reset2016.com

the Christian life is gain
…your wounds are where the Light shines through
… so our world has kind of blown up
— and it’s been it’s own kind of perfect:
a mom’s extraordinary love transforms the short lives of hospice babies
from inside of a silo?!
serving up dignity and love
the love of family
Great are You, Lord
…thank You come the end of the day, Lord
there’s no condemnation for those in Christ,
for those in over their heads, in a mess, in a bad way.
Thank You there’s no condemnation for those who blew it — because they’ve found You,
who gently takes the disillusioned & disappointed & disoriented
and say, “I don’t condemn your brokenness, I carry your burdens.
I don’t condemn you. I came to take it all, shoulder it all, cover it all.
I don’t care about your past, about what you did or didn’t get perfect — I care about your pain. I care about you — I don’t condemn you. I care about you.”
Whatever mess I am in… I can exhale relief: I have a Messiah who meets me in it, won’t leave me in it, and will carry me through it.
There is never, ever, ever anything to ever fear: Our. God. is. Here.
In the name of Jesus, the only One who ever loved us to death and back to the real & forever life,
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
Share Whatever Is Good.
