Happy, happy, happy weekend!
Some real, down in the bones JOY to celebrate today! Links & stories this week 100% guaranteed to make you smile a mile wide & believe like crazy in a Good God redeeming everything — and that there’s love everywhere & for ((you))!
Serving up only the Good Stuff for you right here:
this, this, and this again. If this doesn’t win your Saturday? not sure what else to tell you?
because sometimes? we all need to be rescued a little?
When darkness is pressing in, may You be the Light that guides me
oh the joy right here!
when friends can just be real with one another through it all
come see how music is bridging the gap: so good
caught on camera: he stood for the flag
she did it! : she stepped out of her comfort zone to love her neighbors
At FaithGateWay: If you don’t need this today, promise: you will soon
have you thanked a nurse recently? they are super special folks!
how she’s living with Cerebral Palsy: and not letting anything hold her back
come meet her: Sofia is beautiful
really, in the midst of a contentious campaign,
an interview with Chip and Joanna Gaines: Finding greater rewards in steps of faith
so tell me, whereabouts are you at?
Soooo…. Releasing on Tuesday:
for all these
& I’d love for it to be you, a plane, & a trip to Africa.
“we have a responsibility to help one another get home.” please don’t miss this one?
Believe it: you’re only ever one step away. And you’re never alone in all of this.
…and this is going to get real personal:
You are seen & known.
You aren’t just another face in the crowd, you aren’t just left fighting your battle, trying to slay your giants, forgotten & alone on the backside of nowhere. You aren’t just a number — your name, your name is engraved into the palm of His hands. He knows you — He knows that thing you can’t say out loud, He knows the soreness of the hidden wounds you’ve been carrying around on the inside, He knows the weight that you’ve been lifting & trying to pretend isn’t even there. He wrote a love letter to you about it all; He didn’t just write the Word–He wrote it for you … He wrote it to you — personally.
He wrote your name on His hand — personally.
So let’s believe it and
Never buy the lie
that it matters how you’re ranked
in the eyes of the world —
when what ultimately matters
is how you are ranked
in the hearts of your people
and the eyes of God.
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.
