Words are powerful and they have consequences. Join my friend Karen Ehman for a #DoingLentTogether Facebook community who, beginning Ash Wednesday, March 1, won’t vow to give up chocolate or chips, but instead will give up using our words wrongly.
Click here to enjoy the lovely free printable of scriptures and encouragement to gently remind us to use our words to bless, not to badger; to encourage, not to embitter; to praise, not to pounce. Anyone else in!?

We have the opportunity to look into the eyes of a teen mom and her child and say–yes. And it matter very much. We are tempted to think our yes is insignificant and maybe it is in this great big world of need, but it’s enormously important that we say yes anyway.
“So, yeah. We need you. But mostly, we need Jesus” please don’t miss this post?

Think exhale. Think holy space. Think candles. Think more Jesus.
Think music that sounds like the voice of worship and grace and the beauty of cruciform freedom: with Dove Award Nominated vocalist Best Female Artist of the Year, Christy Nockels.
Think of an unforgettable evening daring to take The Broken Way to abundant freedom.
Think more joy, more peace, more Jesus.

Post of the Week from these parts here
on repeat here all week: Let it Be Jesus…for me to live is Christ
…so every time you feel the ache of the world today, whisper “Jesus” … & invite your Tender Healer close.
“Jesus… healed their bruised & hurt lives” MT9:35MSG.
Jesus is the doctor of the Body & there is no disease He cannot heal; no brokenness He cannot mend; no trouble He cannot carry.
Come close, Jesus, touch us today. Touch our wounded places with Your Healing heart.
Believe it: Our most meaningful purpose can be found exactly in our most painful brokenness. Brokenness happens in a soul so the power of God can happen in a soul.
The whole suffering world rings with the comfort of it, how His nailed scarred hands cup our faces, hold our hurting hearts & He whispers: “I know… I know. Me too. Me too.” We are never alone. Never, ever alone.
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
