Live Wisely Live Fearlessly

Live Wisely Live Fearlessly:

"Pray that I will proclaim this message clearly and fearlessly as I should. Be wise when you engage with those outside the faith community; make the most of every moment and every encounter." (Colossians 4:4-5)

Set sail! Let the refreshing breeze of God's love whisk away every trace of fear. Surrender your ship, and allow your vessel to be wholly His. Let Him splash His grace-rich glory all over you. Don't drop an anxious anchor and stand still, too afraid to live courageously. You're not ruled by those fears any longer! His love has cleared away those tyrannical forces and given you a new name - calledfreechosenhealedstrong, and cherished.

So what are we so scared of? What can anything in this life take away from us? Hasn't He promised? Won't He stay true to His Word? Everything we'll ever need and all the dreams planted deep inside our hearts? Secured. All is safe in the hands of the Lord.

His goodness never fails, and His faithfulness never expires. Forever. He is the God of forever. So how do we represent this fantastic gift? How do we make sure we don't go Home alone? Forsake the lifestyle of fear, and pursue the freedom of faith!

Live so joyfully unafraid, that when others look at you, they can't help but smile and want to know the "secret" to your uncontainable joy. Don't let worry paralyze you, but rather, surrender control to the God who makes you whole. He works all things for good, and His timing is always impeccable. He has a plan. Will you trust Him?

Won't you take a leap of faith with me? Let's live wisely by living worry-free. Let's take every opportunity we're given to shine with freedomradiate His love, and spread His Light.

Grace Amazing Grace Unending

Grace Amazing Grace Unending:

"...then He will have mercy on you and bring you back from captivity. He’ll gather you from all the peoples you’ve been scattered among." (Deuteronomy 30:3)

God never forsakes His faithful promises. He made a covenant with Abraham, and promised to be faithful for ALL generations. Because we are descendants of Abraham (we are the people of God), God will always accept our repentance and our turning back to Him - our dedicating of everything we are to Him - heart, mind, soul, and body. He is a gracious and forgiving God, and because Jesus ransomed us, we are now forgiven and cleansed for all eternity. His grace poured out on the Cross will never lessen - never stop flowing into the depths of our desperation. Grace so amazing, we're covered and redeemed. Nothing can take us away. Not even death has his say. Grace will last 'till the Final Day.

Surrender the Adventure

Surrender the Adventure:

The week looms mysteriously before me. Adventure awaits, and fear takes his place. The thief wants desperately to take the joy of what's ahead, but God, I know You're there. You're in my future, my past, my here and now. There's nothing I can't do when I go with You. There's not one fear too big that Your love and gracious mercy can't sweep away. So as the week comes, let Your love lead. As my future unfolds, let me live it boldly with fearless faith in Your goodness. Let the winds blow through my hair, the water rush over my toes, and the light glimmer on my face. I know Your Presence is shining upon me. I know You're here with me now, and You're not leaving. So let the week and all its uncharted adventure arrive, for I know You're my strong and generous Guide. I know I will more than survive. I will live and I will thrive. I glow with Your glory and Your grace, for this heart and this soul always seek Your face. I'm read for all You've got, God. I'm read to see what the future holds, because I trust that I'm held in Your hands and You're never letting go.

"So don’t be afraid. I am here, with you; don’t be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, help you. I am here with My right hand to make right and to hold you up. After all, it is I, the Eternal One your God, who has hold of your right hand, Who whispers in your ear, “Don’t be afraid. I will help you.”" (Isaiah 41:10,13)
