Hey, sweet reader.
Yes, you. You may be feeling a little crazy today, a little overwhelmed, a little busy or a little discouraged.
I know. I’ve been there before. I’ve been in the dark place that looking inwardly brings. Many of us tend to peek at our imperfect parts for far too long. We get lost in the the fact that we’re still lacking, still angry, still sinning, still fearful, still full of pride.
I get it. I really do.
But there’s no sunshine in the dungeon. Friend, look up. Lift your eyes to Jesus — the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
He counted the cost of the cross and endured its pain and shame. He did that so we could know our Heavenly Father and live in His freedom. Friend, we’re free from continual condemnation and free from the never ending pursuit of self and sin.
Live in the sunshine and breathe in the finished work of Jesus Christ in your life. After all, He is all that we need.
With love, blessings and coffee,
