…turns out, no one ever tells you this about that elusive abundant life. And this kinda turns everything on its head — and destroys the fear of missing out.

How to live large-hearted in a world that can be self-centered?

Philippians 4:1 // Part 1 // Love and Long for One Anotherthank youJohn Piper

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.

…you know, it really is kinda miraculous, if you think about it:

Whatever got botched or bungled yesterday — Today’s a full 24 hours of a completely clean slate.

Fresh mercies, new hours — given to you because you are loved more than you realize, because you are carried further than you know, because He is for you more than you can imagine.

God’s mercies are new every morning — not as an obligation to you, but as an affirmation of you.

“God’s loyal love couldn’t have run out,
His merciful love couldn’t have dried up.
They’re created new every morning.
How great your faithfulness!
I’m sticking with God (I say it over and over).
He’s all I’ve got left.”
Lamentations 3:22-24MSG

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.
