Jesus often went out of his way for people. Even when he was on a journey, he would take the time to respond to the needs of the people.
Truth without love can be harsh and critical.
Honesty with empathy is welcoming and kind.
I’m thankful that Jesus went first, so all I have to do is respond to his unending love.
While I love the fast pace of life, there’s something precious about silence and slowness.
No matter what you’re seeking, searching after, or longing for know that God is seeking you. You’re the one that he leaves the ninety-nine for.
God doesn’t need us to give him outs. He doesn’t need us to add addenda or caveats to our prayers or requests. He is willing.
Today, I am reminded that nothing is impossible with Him.
Community seeks to find reasons to include, not exclude, others.
Whether your addition is coffee or something stronger, social media or some other technology, or something entirely different, I encourage you to take those things to God.
Run to God, mess and all, and let him wrap you in his arms and clean you up with eyes full of grace and love. You don’t need to be perfect to come to him, he’ll accept you where you are, even if you have an F-off sign on your face. Just come.
