Let’s step out of comfort zones this weekend…every moment is a gift – begging us to be present

because we all need a community who cares

A professor held her student’s baby while giving a 3-hour lecture so the mother could take notes

“Love and compassion are part of the philosophy of my classroom. I’m hoping they can spread love, take it to other people who need it.”

Come catch a glimpse of her remarkable life?

From breaking through gender barriers as one of the Navy’s first female pilot, to safely landing the severely crippled Southwest Airlines Flight 1380 and helping save the lives of 148 people…

Milestone moment: ‘Mighty Quinn’ can play outside again

Life is really beautiful.

Let’s maybe pause in the midst of all the busy to appreciate and breathe in all this …

love has no color. love has no boundaries.

cheering wildly through tears at this…

Only forgiveness gives freedom. How can we hold on to bitterness for anyone’s sins, when Jesus holds our sins in arms of forgiveness?

He Asked to Hug the Woman Who Killed His Brother:

‘I Forgive You.’ ‘I Love You.’ ‘Give Your Life to Christ.’

This is for someone right now:

Don’t miss out on opening your hands to the joy you’re meant for:

How to Find the Relief of an Open-handed Life

What is the Difference between Forgiveness and Unforgiveness?

It was a joy to spend time with Better Together discussing what Love is — 

Do you struggle to love those who have offended you? Do you find it easy to love God and others, but not yourself? What is the greatest act of love? God loves us at our worst…can we love unconditionally like Him?Shattered lives become mosaics in the hands of a Great Savior…are you ready to give Him your broken pieces?

We’re discussing this and more!

Please tune in all next week, October 7-11

Watch full episodes of Better Together weekdays at 1:30pm ET on TBN or anytime here

on repeat this week: Rescue Story

[ Print’s FREE here: ]

…the problems of hard times are answered in the presence of Himself: God is with us.

Today, we’re praying not so much for the danger to pass but for the fear to flee — because God. is. with. me.

I know how it can feel like life’s got us in a prison — but on the inside, where God is making new life, we’re free. It can feel like we’ve lost — but not a day goes by without His unfolding grace that. makes. us. win. this. race. It can feel like the night has won — but nothing can ultimately steal us from the One Who is.

So! “…we’re not giving up. How could we! Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, *not a day goes by without His unfolding grace.*” 2Cor4MSG

A grace that holds you when everything is breaking down and falling apart—and whispers that everything is somehow breaking free and falling together.

The bottom line, and the finish line, is simply this: just one foot in front of the other here & let today bring out the BEST in you — the joy, the hope, the grace, the beauty, the love of Jesus in you! That hard road: let it bring out the best hope in you.

[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.
