Hard year.

And there’s a whole tribe of us weary & just —

wanting to prepare our hearts & Him room —

& make room for a bit of Hope.

Yeah — desperately that:

when you’re weary & just want to prepare your heart for Christmas — & a bit of Hope

…these disappointments we can’t even talk about —
they might just go ahead & try to make us bitter,
and these banged up expectations of ours,
of all that we had expected things would look like — but don’t — might keep on trying to make us guarded & hard…
and the dreams we can’t even tell anybody about, but feel pretty bruised right about now, they might be trying to convince us to just give up… we can feel You touch us, how You lift our chins slow, how You speak right into us:
“I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for.” Jer. 29:11MSG
And Your Word touches us. Touches us like a gentle salve tonight in the sorest places… And we feel it: Hope is the salve that keeps our broken hearts soft.
Believe it: When you can’t touch bottom is when you touch the depths of God.

[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.
