It’s so easy to think of God as some aloof guy who sees and treats us all the same, but he knows and cares for each of us individually.
I’ve been going about my merry way, thanking God for the opportunities in front of me, only to realize that he’s been whispering to me “This is good, but I have better for you.”
Things have been so good lately, but this little thought has been sneaking into my mind: When is it all going to go wrong?
I believe that learning how to be intentionally grateful in good times helps us better prepare for the rocky waters of life when they come.

I’m confident that we can experience a deeper level of God’s love, grace, and mercy when we open ourselves up to him honestly and without holding back.

Technology is not a thermostat but a thermometer that can tell us a great deal about ourselves that we might not recognize as readily any other way.
Jesus came to take our burdens—even the ones we give ourselves.
