…it can feel like life’s got us in a prison — but on the inside, where God is making new life, we’re free. It can feel like we’ve lost — but not a day goes by without His unfolding grace that. makes. us. win. this. race. It can feel like the night has won — but nothing can ultimately steal us from the One Who is.
So! “…we’re not giving up. How could we! Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, *not a day goes by without His unfolding grace.*” 2Cor4MSG
A grace that holds you when everything is breaking down and falling apart—and whispers that everything is somehow breaking free and falling together.
The bottom line, and the finish line, is simply this: The God who has carried you till now can be trusted to carry you till you’re through… right through to the very end — which, then, on the other side, will be a perfect, forever beginning.
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
