God is molding us, like a potter molds the clay. His ways are purposeful, careful, creative, and gentle yet firm enough to get the right effect, because He knows what He is preparing us for in the months to come, He knows how He is going to use us.
We don’t wander off on purpose. We just get so easily distracted by something or run aimlessly.
Do I need a reminder to remain?
Over and over again our God reminds us that His beauty is greater than our perception of ourselves in the mirror, or how the world would define beauty.
the goal is Jesus. Our hope is in Him
These are the memories my daughters hold dear–the walk, the cocoa, the dipping in wax. For me, it’s all the days that come next: watching their hearts pour our gratitude for what God has poured into our lives.
I encourage you to pay attention to the conversations you’re having or need to have. Encourage others to be brave in their conversations. Pray for Godly courage in the midst of it all.
