Further Up & Further In

This is a good day to start fresh. Then again, every day is. If it rains, don’t wait for it to stop. Acknowledge every difficulty in your life—every broken part of your heart, every loss, and every challenge, and let Jesus still the storms.

Leave your offenses behind. Forgive, bless, and love, and free up room in your mind for him to equip you with all you need to move forward.

Take a deep breath. Take another. Now listen for his voice. He’s right there with you, telling you how much he loves you, and blessing you with all the peace, joy, and wisdom you need to deal with everything ahead of you.

Be confident. Smile. Immerse yourself in God’s faith, hope, and love for you, and give them away freely. Living in response to him means you never have to live in reaction to your circumstances.

“There’s only one thing worth being concerned about” (Luke 10:42a).
