We are forgetting our struggles and remembering who we are in Christ. Free and forgiven. Adopted and Loved.
Have you ever dropped your kids off on the first day of school and after the door slams shut you burst into tears because “that shit (summer) was hard”?
The day after death.
The disciples were often not quite sure of things. They KNEW who Jesus was but their flesh couldn’t understand what God was doing. They often asked Jesus. “What do you mean?”, “Where are you going?”, “How do we get there, again?”,
What did Jesus actually do on the cross?
in a culture that says Love is just Love…
When our kids understand how many centuries it took for Jesus to be born, they can better understand the anticipation and aww that we experience in remembering the day of Jesus’ birth.
Sister, The same God who parted the sea is making a way for you now. Think about that…
I hope you might take a break too. Shut everything off, sink into the word of God, sit with one of your kiddoes and ask them their thoughts on stuff, splash in the pool with your littles, write letters to ones you love, bake some cookies, refill your tank this summer. Set your eyes on where you are in this exact season.
This book is so much than it’s title. These days we may not hear people as about their “calling” very much. It’s more likely we will hear people say , “How do I live my best life?” or “What is my truth?”…. This book answers those questions too and it answers them well, with purpose, truth, intelligence and clarity.
I have noticed lately, a lot of Christians these days don’t see the importance of understanding who Jesus actually is. They are of the understanding that we can’t really know exactly who He was and if we try, we are only fooling ourselves. There is also an idea that somehow we are or can be equal to Jesus. That we have exactly the same qualities as He and all we have to do is believe it.
