In the Beginning…
on repeat this week: God Only Knows
…and really? What could matter more? Know that Jesus is praying right now that the Spirit comforts you, strengthens you, anoints you with fresh oil of brave joy today.
Believe it: Hard times don’t need to understand what God’s doing — like they need to know God’s standing with us, that He’s kneeling in prayer for us at all times. Nothing makes you more fiercely brave than knowing Jesus is fiercely praying for you. Always.
Let the Light carry you especially now…
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
