Thinking about all the ways the church has hurt people, it broke my heart. But God told me something ~ in the chaos, He made a symphony.
I visited Lutheran for the first time since I graduated last week. It got me thinking:
If I could tell my freshman self anything, what would I say?
I’m sorry Jesus for these big ugly walls.
“Beloved, if I can break down the walls of the grave, don’t you think I can break down the walls guarding your heart?”
My 2022 started kind of imperfectly. Thank goodness I have a perfect God.
The Christmas story and a short Christmas devotion ~ so you have everything you need this Christmas to focus on what’s most important.
He was born in the dirt so I could rise from the ashes.
He was born in the dark so I could touch the light.
He was born to die so that we could live.
Here’s what God taught me about Redemption this Christmas season:
God did something really cool this week.
But my God is a God who is worthy of praise not because of whatever is going on in my tiny little life, but because of the fact that He created everything, deserves everything, is everything.
After believing for YEARS that success was directly tied to doing things, God flipped my idea of success completely on its head.
This is what He’s teaching me:
I felt discouraged about book sales a few days ago and a friend reminded me of something that comforted me x100.
God knows the struggle of the creative/small business owner.
My thoughts were messy after spending all day prepping for Black Friday & Small Business Saturday.
Got reminded me of some things.
