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.
God has assigned forgetting and remembering strategic roles in our salvation.
In this lab, John Piper calls us to remember everything that serves faith and obedience and to forget everything that hinders faith and obedience.
on repeat this week: When We Pray
Feeling like it’s looking a bit impossible? BUT GOD!
Like there’s not a chance of change? BUT GOD!
Like there’s no hope for a different ending? BUT GOD!
“But God, who is rich in mercy…” Eph.2:4
Two Words, Change Everything: BUT GOD! Change every internal conversation with those two words “BUT GOD” — and you change your life. What looks impossible changes — because when we pray to a GOD WHO IS ABLE — He changes us & our impossibles into the impossABLES.
