Take the Dare, Join the Revolution, Pick Up The Broken Way

I Will Trust in You

[ Print’s FREE here: ]

..long day & you’ve had big, hard things coming at you. You may not even be saying it out loud — but really? It’s hard to keep showing up when it’d be easier to give up.
But can you hear Him this evening?
“Just Call to Me. I guarantee I will answer you.
I will make you strong & brave.” (Ps.138:3MSG)
Ask Him — He will come & make you strong & brave for the Hard Things. 
So that’s the plan as we look toward the evening hours ahead: Be Brave.
And do not pray for the hard thing to go away.
But pray for a Bravery to come that’s bigger than the Hard Thing.

 

[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
