Life Is Not A Straight Line

Dear Someone,

I don’t know who this is for, but understand me well as I type these words.

Keep Making A Joyful Noise

Dear Someone,

My Grace Is Waiting

Dear Family,

It doesn’t matter what you’ve done or where you’ve been. It doesn’t matter who is for you or against you. It doesn’t matter the weapon that is fashioned against you, My Grace is waiting for you to begin again.

“I create the blacksmith who fires up his forge and makes a weapon designed to kill. I also create the destroyer – but no weapon that can hurt you has ever been forged. Any accuser who takes you to court will be dismissed as a liar.”
– Isaiah 54:16-17 (MSG)

Love,
Your Gracious God.
