Do you feel a little bit broken? A little bit fragile? Maybe you feel like a full-blown mess? Do you know that you are a treasure? A priceless being with infinite worth!
The Bible tells us that Jesus died for us all; the messy, broken, fragile beings we are. He loves us with an everlasting love. When we surrender our lives and our preconceived notions of what or how we ought to look and feel and be, and run to Him with open arms, He delights in wrapping us in a warm embrace and then setting our feet on solid ground. He patiently transforms us from the inside out, and provides us with nourishing rest in the midst of our chaotic lives.
Alive. Free. Renewed. Hope-filled. These are promised identities for us.
My heart’s cry is that we, God’s Beloved through Christ Jesus, would walk out the Abundant Life that Jesus died for us to have. May we trust that our weakness will point to God’s strength as we fully submit our identities and worth to who He says we are, rest in all that He is, and confidently shine our light of Jesus’ gospel message into the world.
Come. Read. Be blessed and encouraged. May my words point you to Jesus, and may your hearts find all you need for Abundant Life in Him.
Your friend, and fellow fragile treasure,
