LOVE IS AT WORK
Love is ever diligent, laboring behind the scenes, rewriting sorrow’s stories into tales of redemption.
Jesus said, “My Father is always at His work to this very day, and I too am working.” –John 5:17
Do not be anxious. He is also mindful of you, and knows your deepest needs.
“In His hand is the life of every creature, and the breath of all mankind.”
The race isn’t always to the swift, but it’s still not a bad idea to choose a really slow competitor!
“Just you and me turtle-boy, from here to the edge of the carpet!”
What is needed to come to God? An open heart, and empty hands.
“Let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings.” –Hebrews 10:22
YOUR LIFE, YOUR SONG
Every person is created unique, and thus able to uniquely reflect God’s creativity.
“Sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the earth.”
Grace is not about anything we can do. It’s about resting in what Christ has already done on our behalf.
“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” –Matthew 11:28…Read More
If eternity has been set in our hearts, it makes sense that the echoed beauties of our world would resonate within us, awakening hope and homesick longings for the eternal.
“He has made everything beautiful in its time, and has put eternity in our hearts.” –Ecclesiastes 3:11
We so often carry burdens too large for our small shoulders. Burdens we were never meant to carry. The divine call to be still is, at its heart, a call to freedom. It is a gracious invitation to lay our burdens down and breathe deep in the love of the One who alone can shoulder the weight of our lives.
“Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him.”
Psalm 37:7…Read More
God made His dwelling here, with us. John 1:14
May we ponder anew our own place in the story. Colossians 1:15-20
