So we dreamed up — a BOOK CLUB! Join us this year for #WRT: We Read Toge(s)ther: 1 year. 12 books. For such a time as now.
We can do this toge(s)ther — 1 year — 12 books. We are where we are for a reason and a purpose and now, now, is our time to make a difference, change our world, and join Him in changing the world.
Our year to BREAK FREE. Let’s do this…. want to do this with you:
The Broken Way is a new FREE six-week online Bible study, where you will discover that…
- wholeness and brokenness are not opposites
- the abundant life you crave is found in the broken pieces of your life, and
- you don’t have to be afraid of broken things, because Christ is redeeming everything.
Sign up for the study now and we’ll get started the week of January 22! I’ll kick things off with a FREE online event on the 23rd with all of our online Bible study participants. And we’re making the companion study videos available to you for FREE. All 6 beautiful, raw, vulnerable sessions!
Register now and get the schedule, free downloads, and all the great bonuses you need to get started right away — Please be in with us? You’re needed and wanted and belong.
This is our year — our year — to BREAK FREE!
good, good words right here
…new day & no fears because fears are just the bad stories we tell ourselves. And your Father is far bigger than your fears.*
This is why “I have set the Lord always before me. Because He is at my right hand I will not be shaken” Psalm 16:8.
He pulls you right close & whispers it, “Do Not Be Afraid.”
He knows how hard things are. And He knows how faithful He will be.
That’s why He repeats it again & again, 365 times, so we don’t have need to fear any day of the year: Do Not Be Afraid.
He holds every minute of this day & His grace & timing are perfect.
You can abandon all your cares because Christ will never, ever abandon you. You can abandon your fears and abide in the safe expanse of Your Father.
So we’re just going to go all out & Trust & be brave: It takes courage to listen with our whole heart to the tick of God’s timing, rather than march to the loud beat of our fears.
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
