I’ve been thinking lately about the various paradoxes in our lives:
faith without mystery just might not be faith – if we don’t have to trust & believe in God, then we must consider the possibility that we may not be doing something by faith;
love is sacrificial – love gives what is meaningful not only to us, but moreso, what is meaningful to the recepient; love is generous at our own expense
Jesus gives us what we need, but not always what we want; I find myself very thankful that He makes this decision because my wants are not always the most healthy decisions for me
justice – this is something I’m really thinking about of late. More to follow as this marinates in my heart & thoughts.
Today, here is some encouragement for you: be gentle with yourself, keep your thoughts healthy & constructive, be patient, generous & kind with others whether they deserve it or not, smile alot, be still for a moment & receive Jesus’ love to you, recognize that God often works in ways that aren’t always humanly familiar. You are extravagantly loved by your heavenly Father
