Hello favorite awesome tribe!
What a few months! I have loved hearing many of your stories and have fallen madly in love with this beautiful spot on the internet. You are a mighty force. And God is moving here. To imagine all of your stories of surrender being played out in of your homes and in all of your cities is too much to take in. God is stirring.
It feels a kin to revival. I know we all are aching for just that. And nothing moves God more than surrendered lives who want him more than everything small here.
I pray for you and I will keep praying. Thank you for allowing me in your space. I will miss you but I will keep checking in. Come say hi now and again here:
I just found myself rereading this entry that I wrote just after the book released. It was actually so good to remember how difficult this prayer has been at times because today I stand looking at an entire life I would be missing if I hadn’t prayed anything….
and I love my hard messy life. I have more God, more purpose, more joy, more peace even with the difficult.
Isn’t it true? The very most fulfilling parts of life are rarely the easiest.
So I don’t know if you stand looking at a cliff, fearing the worst or if you are giddy full of more God but I promise- this surrender- this deep over-the-top trust in such a good God is worth it.
Jesus does promise a backwards way of finding life:
“whoever loses their life for my sake will find it.” Matthew 10:39
I am cheering you as you each find your places in God’s story! And I pray our paths cross this side of heaven.
