  [ Print’s FREE here: ]

when your identity is in Christ, your identity is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

Criticism can’t change it. Failing can’t shake it. Election results can’t ruin it. Lists can’t determine it.

When your identity is in the Rock, your identity is rock-solid. As long as God is for you, it doesn’t matter what mountain rises ahead of you.

You aren’t your yesterday, you aren’t your messes, you aren’t your failures, you aren’t your brokenness.

Let’s believe and put on repeat all day: You are brave enough for today, because He is. You are strong enough for what’s coming, because He is. And you are enough for all that is, because He always is.


[excerpted from our little Facebook family … come join us each day?]

Dare to fully live!

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.
