…if we knew what fire every single person is facing, there isn’t even one person we wouldn’t help fight their fire with the heat of a Greater Love.

So…no matter what’s ahead in your day — let’s kinda try this beautiful plan that could make the world a more beautiful place: “Help others get ahead…lend a helping hand.” Philippians 2:4MSG

Because the thing is? We aren’t here to one-up one another — but to help one another up.

The real hope of this new day is that it is the Lord helping you — with all the strength you need for the stretch of just. this. moment.

“Each of you should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms… Be generous with the different things God gave you, passing them around so all get in on it: if words, let it be God’s words; if help, let it be God’s hearty help.” 1 Peter 4:10 NIV, MSG.

[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.
