on repeat this week: Who You Say I Am

[ Print’s FREE here: ]

You’re infinitely messier than you dared admit
& 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

No matter what Hallmark is selling today, Jesus wraps you close: *You are infinitely more loved than you ever dared dream.* No. Matter. What.
