13-Jun-2017: Make a Mark

Hey! You are going to be okay. It’s going to be good.
You could be facing the most difficult moments or it’s all blatant. But today unfolded so that you and I could make a difference for someone through our words, actions, gestures and prayers.
Believe it: Every tremor of kindness might erupt in a miracle on the other side of the world.


“For we are the product of His hand, heaven’s poetry etched on lives, created in the Anointed, Jesus, to accomplish the good works God arranged long ago” – Ephesians 2:10


The extraordinary things happen nowhere else but in the everyday and today can always be the beginning.

And the only way to ever leave beauty marks on the world is with bits of yourself — and this will hurt. Things of realest beauty don’t bring us glory — but Him glory.
So, Listen: you’ve got to keep going.
In Him your part is large and lovely and needed and art.

So go get the milk and take out the trash and throw in the laundry and wave giddy to the neighbors because there is a plan and there is a purpose and there is a God in heaven who didn’t just ink you onto the palm of His hands but etched your name right into Himself with nails and He’s hasn’t just got your number, He’s got your heart.

Because God’s writing your story and He never leaves you alone in your story, and His perfect love absorbs all your fear and His perfect grace carries all your burdens, and your story is a happily ever after because Christ bought your happily ever after so you always know how this story ends.

You’re going to be okay, and He promises to help you find joy in the ordinary.
