Seeking Stillness: One of the quietest rooms in the world

“God, where are You? Do You even care? Why am I going through this?”

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.

Your Weakness is Not a Setback

on repeat this week: What a Friend

[ Print’s FREE here: ]

…maybe, if we’re honest, it feels like there’s been a lot of burned down hopes & dreams & we’re walking through a whole lot ashes lately, and in the midst of our honesty & brevity maybe all we can murmur is just “Create in us a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit with us” (Ps. 51)
And in the midst, there’s His Gentle Word: “God will supply every need of yours” Phil. 4:19
You don’t need to be perfect,
You need to simply feel His perfect love.
You don’t need to be in control
You need to simply be in Christ.
You don’t need to be more —
because He is all you need.
Revel in how loved you are today.
Yeah, sure, you’re infinitely messier than you dare admit but that doesn’t change the Truth one bit:
*You are infinitely more loved than you ever dared dream.*
“Do you think anyone can drive a wedge between you & Christ’s love for you? No way! Not trouble, not hard times, not hatred —
absolutely NOTHING can get between you & God’s love because of the way that Jesus has embraced you.” Ro. 8:31MSG

That’s Real Love today: Jesus. has. embraced. you.
So no matter what the world may be selling today, Jesus wraps you close: You are infinitely more loved than you ever dared dream. 
Feel the forever embrace of that.
It’s sorta the greatest relief: You don’t have to be awesome & do everything today.
You simply have to believe that the One who is Awesome loves you through everything.
Full stop. That’s it. Takes the pressure right off!
“Make yourselves at home in My love.” John 15:9 MSG

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
