…it’s a hard world out there & everyone’s fighting their own hard fires —. and there’ll be many ways to get through today:

You can race, pace or chase —
but your best mode of transportation through anything
is always a leap of faith.

So let’s believe:
Commit to more than a prayer life.
Make your life a prayer.
Make your work your worship, make your days your doxology, make your life your liturgy, and make Christ your only King.

Your work may burn up or cause you to burn out, but the prayers enfolded into the stacks of laundry, the stirred soup, the stairs swept — they will survive fire.

So I’m still learning, still staying hungry, still staying needy:

The cure to an overwhelmed life
begins with a daily overdose of Scripture.

Leave a Bible open to the Psalms by the sink, on the desk, at the table, eat His book every time you eat because the truth is: Stay in His Story to stay walking on waves.

Today, just hold on to these three words, your refrain for the climbing, the overcoming, the pressing through wind:
God. is. Greater.

[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
