Chadwick Boseman lived a life of humility and service on and off screen. When asked by a reporter, “What superpower do you wish you had?”, he responded, “I wish I could freeze time”. Still, Chadwick went on to make over 7 films while fighting for his life. He didn’t let his diagnosis stop him from showing up for those around him and using his platform to elevate black voices. A true hero, he made every day count.

The plagues and losses has kinda felt of biblical proportions If you’re looking for HOPE — you can’t afford to miss this; it will be everything you didn’t know you really needed:

… there are days you just look up at the calendar and exhale:

It’s okay to feel bone tired — you have One who gives His bone and His body for you and beckoned: Come Rest. 

It’s okay to feel spent — you have One who pays you all His attention, who says you are worth costing Him everything — and then He bought you back from the pit because you are priceless to Him. 

It’s okay to feel whatever you feel —because you don’t judge your feelings; you feel your feelings—and then give them to God. Feelings are meant be fully felt and then fully surrendered to God.

And it’s okay to feel behind — because you have One who is the Head & the Author & the Maker & the Finisher & the Carrier & the Warrior & nothing is over until He carries you over the finish line. 

Believe it: whatever your story is today — it’s okay.
Because the Writer of the story has written Himself into the hardest places of yours and is softening the edges of everything with redeeming grace.

[excerpted from our little Facebook family … come join us each day?]

Dare to fully live!
