How the Gospel Redeems Our Feelings

when you see love on a battle field

what a story here: please don’t miss this one…

“no matter how broken you are, no matter how lost, keep going…”

“It doesn’t matter how many times you get knocked down in life, it’s about how many times you get back up that truly determines your quality of life.”

Post of the week from these parts here

…So kinda brimmed and spilled through this whole thing. Because everyone enters marriage expecting a forever thing — yet marriages are fragile things.
And I’ve known it…on some pitch black roads when I didn’t know where to turn or how to keep going, and undoubtedly, it could all gone another way, but it’s our story, in defiant spite of me:

What is the Secret Miracle of Marriage (And About Marriage Renewal Vows)

Your flourishing is going to happen with God, so know who He is.

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.

on repeat this week: With You

…just for today — DO. NOT. WORRY. “Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.” Matt6:34MSG

Just for today: Be a prayer warrior–not a panicked worrier.

Worry is just the facade of taking action — when prayer really is.
Bottom line — keep breathing deep and give your worries to God — He’ll give you His peace.

His Word gently lifts our chins:
“The Lord bless you & keep you;
the Lord make His face to shine upon you & be gracious to you;
the Lord lift up His countenance upon you & give you peace.” Nu.6

 

[excerpted from our little Facebook family … come join us each day?]

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

Share Whatever Is Good.
