coming to a river near you, perhaps?
room after room he helped to change a day — and it was just the start
so what about you?
go ahead and just exhale at all of this
Can a cute box of goodies really change the world? Yes, yes, it can. Send a fair trade gift box for every occasion filled with handmade items from around the world and provide jobs in Jesus’ name. I cannot recommend this highly enough
this principal? Instead of asking parents to come to her? She goes to them – visiting every single family
“This is the love that Grandma made for each of us. This is what she made for each of us to wrap up in when we hurt. “When we miss her.”
“Don’t let others’ concept of what you can and cannot do define you.”
just maybe the most heartwarming use of duct tape you’ll see?
“…she looked at them and saw a human being.” #BetheGIFT
come meet this man of extraordinary compassion – how he gives and gives and gives
because we are all worthy
this is one trio to watch: they’re on the run
so…. what if the next 40 days is asking us to do more than only Give Up something — but to Take Back something?
Take Back taking up our Cross,
Take Back our time so we can turn back to our First Love.

God is Better
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.
oh, praise the God of Calvary
…and it’s true for every one of us: you are broken and you don’t have to pretend you are not. What a relief. You begin to break your brokenness when you break down with your brokenness—when you hand it over to the One broken for you.
Be patient with God’s patient work in you. It’s not that your heart isn’t going to break; it’s how you let the brokenness be made into abundance afterward. Believe it: Brokenness makes abundance. Your wounds are what break open the soul to plant the seeds of a deeper growth. For without your wounds, where is your strength?
And oh, how our anxiety and fears can make us blind to the abundance being made out of our brokenness.
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.
Faith is really faith—when we believe God for the unbelievable.
You are always enough — because You have Jesus & He is always enough. You have enough of Him & strength to not give up. You have enough of Him & love to keep on giving. Believe it – God takes what looks like not enough and He will make it into abundance.
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.
