THIS, this, this!! My Mama! And:

Time is made of all the seconds–and all kinds of second chances to be kind.

& have you caught all the pics of my wild road trip with my Mama?!?

Such a beautiful picture of how Jesus holds us through the dance of life!
Remember: Whatever you’re going through this week, Jesus has your back.
Let Him walk with you through it all.

Did you see the red moon eclipse earlier this week? Wow! So stunning!

“How the Persecuted Church wants us to pray for them”
Are we? Really — what if we at least did this? 

Start Here: Print One Prayer Guide– and make it a part of your daily sacred rhythm.
It’s not the least we can — it’s literally the first, and most important thing to do.

“Why Millions Are Still Unreached by the Gospel”
If the good news of being saved is unspeakably precious to you — then you’ve got to watch this.
Sit with this. Be changed by this. I can’t stop thinking about this.

Oh to live blessed, broken, and given around the tables we gather ata MUST read before Thanksgiving.

*Shoutout to each one that make us want to be the Big Wings people, too.*

“My heart and my flesh
Cry out for You
Humbly I come to You now
Thirsty for the living water”

and it’s only holding both of those, that you let go and find joy.
But how?

…yeah, it’s ridiculously tempting to think:
“I am what I accomplish. I am what I weigh. I am what I achieve. I am what I do.”

But shake off that lie:
Your *activity for Christ* does not give you your identity.
*You are not what your hands do.*
Your *intimacy with Christ* is what gives you your identity.

You are what your heart is.
And your heart is held in His no matter what fails today,
your heart is loved by Him no matter what any numbers say today,
your heart is strengthened in His no matter how overwhelming things look today.

Identity literally means “the same” —
that regardless of changing circumstances,
the core of you is unchangeable, stable, is the same.

When your identity is in Christ, your identity is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow.
Criticism can’t change it. Failing can’t shake it. Lists can’t determine it.
When your identity is in the Rock — your identity is Rock Solid.

As long as God is for you, it doesn’t matter what mountain rises ahead of you.
You aren’t your yesterday, you aren’t your messes, you aren’t your lists.

You are brave enough for today because He is.
You are strong enough for what’s coming because He is.
And you are enough for all that is because He. always. is.

#HeIsEnough #TheWayofAbundance #1000Gifts

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.
