Have you called something “not for you” because it was outside of your comfort zone?
Though it’s easier for us to focus on the external, the truth is that it’s the internal that always radiates outward.
Jesus is perfect, not a perfectionist.
Our hearts are the catalyst for everything we do so we are to care for our hearts well.
While I still know nothing about gardening and have nothing short of a black thumb, I see the value in the gardening metaphor.
I suspect that we might be so focused on the rules in one area of our lives, that we’re missing out on something greater being done.
Lately, I’ve been finding myself bracing for impact, but that’s not how God has called me to live.
I’m thankful that God (and others) stick with me even when I’m being an angry elf and hold me accountable when I slip back into unhealthy habits.
Recently, my decisions were motivated by fear instead of faith, but I’m thankful for the clarity that truth brings.
I pray that we’re each able to embrace, look up from, and invite others into our discomfort today.
