#BeTheGift  #TheBrokenWay

What do you do when you wake up and feel like you’re not enough for your life? Or when you look out the kitchen window as dusk falls and wonder how do you live when life keeps breaking your heart?

In sixty vulnerably soulful stories, The Way of Abundance moves from self-weary brokenness to Christ-focused givenness.

Christ Himself broke like bread, giving Himself to us so we might have a lifelong communion with Him. Could it be that our brokenness is also a gift to the world?  These tender devotionals dare us to embrace any and all brokenness as a gift that moves us closer to the heart of God. 

This gentle book does nothing less than take you on an intimate journey of the soul.

on repeat this week: Grace to Grace

[ Print’s FREE here: ]

yeah, I get it: You want a do-over. You wanted to be better.
Never once did you ask to come stumbling into this with all this baggage — all this mess that your parents sent you packing with, all these unhealthy-coping mechanisms, all these triggers, all this unspoken broken.

What you really want, desperately, wildly, in spite of everything — is for them to remember the good…. to remember enough of the times you whispered, “I Love You” … to know how many times you broke your heart and how how hard you really tried.

So… could someone maybe just wrap up … a bit of Grace for us today?
If we’re being honest? What every mother wants, her most unspoken need — is a truckload of Grace.

Grace that buries her fears that her faith wasn’t enough, and that her faults were too many. Grace that washes her dirty wounds and wounds the devil’s lies. Grace that says she doesn’t have to try to measure up to anyone else because Jesus came down — and He measures her as good enough, as worthy enough, as loved more than enough.

That is all … believe it today: You don’t have to be awesome and do everything. You simply have to believe that the One who is Awesome loves you through everything.

[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
