THIS: what the power of love can do
on repeat this week: Jesus I Believe
Preaching gospel to yourself is how you whisper calm to your soul,
Good news that soothes the raw edges of things, the soft ways of grace and tender hope that carries you Forward.
And you can always, always, always be kind, because the devil and his kind have already lost:
The devil’s most destructive day can never destroy your hope, your call, your future.
So no matter how the wind blows today, keep calm and be kind: When things become hard, wise hearts stay soft.
Solving a problem can’t ever trump loving a person.
So today, simply:
Rise to whatever comes to you, go to wherever you’re sent, give however your soul knows how, and give thanks whenever you breathe.
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.
