Feels like there’s a million things coming at you as you look into tomorrow and the weekend ahead, but really there is always only one thing: Just. Stay. Calm.

“The Lord Himself will fight for you. Just stay calm” Ex14:14

Let the Spirit in dwell, before stepping into the hour, day, week. This is the way calm comes.
For God will do the battle for you.
You just do the breathing in Him.
Jesus didn’t just calm one storm—He can calm all our storms.

And He comes as a sign to us, a sign of the cross, a sign God’s reaching for us, believing in us, in love, in redemption, in making all things new, in making us enough because He is.

Our God is the God to find comfort in because ours is the God who cries… the God tender enough to break right open and let His heart run liquid and He is the river of life because He knows our heart streams. One day He will wipe all tears away because He knows how the weeping feel: He has loved us.

[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

Share Whatever Is Good.
