Be Part of a Revolution: How to sing your part in a hurting and brokenhearted world:
This one’s for those who dare to take The Broken Way… into abundance — and you could be one of them, one who believes freedom can be found not only beyond the fear and pain, but actually within it.
… so that time Christianity Today came up to the farm to do their own little expose :
give Him all your broken pieces…you don’t have to hide who you are
..real life is happening, and it’s happening right now.
What if instead of waiting for good enough things to happen to us, we could be the good thing to happen to someone else who’s waiting?
What if we could cure our own waiting room addiction by making room in our life to be the good others are waiting for?
What if instead of sitting in life’s waiting room, waiting for a chance for something good enough to happen to check off a bucket list—what if abundant living isn’t about what you can expect from life, but what life can expect from you?
Be the GIFT — give forward the grace you’ve tasted, the comfort you’ve known, the love you’ve felt.
Because the best answer to the suffering in the world is to dare to take The Broken Way —
Dare to be brave — break free from fears…
Dare to live vulnerable — break open your heart…
Dare to sacrifice and surrender — live broken & given into the greatest abundance.
That’s all for this weekend, friends.
Go slow. Be God-struck. Grant grace. Live Truth.
