on repeat this week: My Victory

[ Print’s FREE here: ]

…every single day has a bit of it’s own now-traumatic stress disorder. Maybe now is the time to look at that wrinkling face in the mirror and touch that cheek gentle and whisper, “It really is okay. So you are broken. Be brave. Let yourself be loved.”

Always remember: Peace is a Person. No one can steal Peace from you. And nothing can steal you from Him.

You can’t turn the calendar pages and think you’ve messed it up, you can’t hold up any measuring stick and think you’ve botched it so bad, that you lose Peace, that you can’t get Peace, that you can’t find Peace. If you have Christ – nothing can steal your peace.

If Worry is practicing the absence of God’s presence —
then let’s just hold the grace of practicing the presence of Him
whose very name is Peace.

Peace is never a place — but always a Person.

Practicing keeping company with Him, Peace… just might make every place worry-free today.

“Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus… ” Rom8:1

[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.
