…you know how you’re sticking with it & doing that hard thing? You’ve just gotta know, you don’t stand alone, you don’t walk alone, you don’t go alone: “But the Lord stood at my side and gave me strength” 2 Timothy 4:17

And nothing can happen today that will stop Him from sticking right there with you & giving you strength to do this thing.

There is nothing to fear today —
because there is nothing, not mess-ups, not distractions, not less-than-hoped-fors, nothing in the universe that can happen today to separate you from the loving hands of God.

There is nothing to fear no matter what —
because there is nothing, not sickness, not pain, not diagnosis, Not Even Death, nothing in the universe that can ever separate you from the loving hands of God.

There is Never. Anything. to fear — because there is Nothing in the universe that can Ever. separate. you. from the loving hands of God.

So Go Live Brave! His Love Makes You Brave!

[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
