He is Risen! He is Risen indeed

on repeat this week: Reckless Love

[ Print’s FREE here: ]

… on the night that He went to the Upper Room,
He was ready to go to the lowest
to reach every single one of the bruised & battered.
On the night He wrung sweaty, bloody prayers out of His soul in the garden,
He wanted the heart of us broken and the will of the Father
more than He could stand being without any one of us.
” ‘And on the night He was BETRAYED…
He broke bread & lifted it up & GAVE THANKS.’ (1Cor.11:23)
And, I’m telling you — If Jesus can give thanks IN THAT?
Then, even in this busted & hurting world, we can look to Him
& give thanks in EVERYTHING.

[excerpted from our little Facebook family … come join us each day?]

Dare to fully live!

Give Thanks. Love well. Re – joy, re- joy, ‘re- joys’ again
