I don’t know where you’re going or what you’re starting or where your new year might bring you, but I pray you are able to find the courage you need to get there.
Emily writes that “Jesus saves is not just a religious slogan.”
Jesus saves me from myself. He saves me from being a rule-follower and from wanting to break the rules. He saves me from my failures and my faults. He saves me from my need to please and recovers me from perfectionism. He saves me and frees me to be myself in a world that tells you again and again to be someone else. In him all my needs are met and again and again there is grace enough for this day, bread for today if I will receive it, and I am found in him.
May your new year be one full of courage and strength found in Him.
