The Morning Light

Freedom is calling your name. Step into the light and never look back.

It’s a new day. Go ahead and take a deep breath. Remind yourself that His mercies are new every morning. 

Last night, in the dark, you may have said or done some things that you regret today. But my friend, the light of the morning sun has risen in the sky. The things done in the dark are forgotten in the light.

The light literally can’t contain the blackness of yesterday’s night. It has to shine. Bright and beaming, the glow of today overshadows yesterday’s dimness. All that’s left is what we remember.

Can you let the streaming rays call out to this hidden truth inside of you? Can you forgive yourself for what only you can still see? Let the early gleam of dawn refresh you with its brilliance, its illuminating possibilities.

The darkness limits us, confines us, traps us. The light sets us free to walk in a spacious place. Bask in the warmth of knowing you never have to be a prisoner to the dark ever again. Freedom is calling your name. Step into the light and never look back.

 Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, “I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life” (John 8:12).

Go Ahead and Give Yourself Some Grace

life is not an emergency

It’s Monday. Give yourself some extra grace today, friends. 
Sip your coffee just a little bit longer. Linger in the shower for an additional minute or two. Drive the long way to work so you can hear that song on the radio all the way ’til the end. 
Don’t rush. Don’t break out in a sweat over a few extra moments of self care. These things are necessary in the long run.
Life is not an emergency. It’s meant to be savored and enjoyed. Every second counts. 
So be good to yourself. Others will take notice of your appreciation of the good things in life. 
And, maybe, they will go a little bit easier on themselves too. Grace is contagious that way, after all. 

 

 

Come to Me

Come to Me and breathe

Fill your lungs with My peace

I am here to give you rest

Nothing can take you away from Me.

Come to Me and eat

My word is all the nourishment you need

I am the Bread of life

Feast on my goodness when you are hungry.

Come to Me and sleep

Hours of worry only bring you anxiety

Be lulled by My songs

I will comfort you with My sweet melodies.

Come to Me and be

Stillness in My presence brings relief

Let Me guide you to the Truth

For there is nothing else that will set you free.
