Today, I want to offer you encouragement. Someday soon, I can tell you about the past six months, all the closed doors, false starts, waiting, questioning, being humbled again and again… and the open doors. The ones that move the slightest bit and leave you stunned.
This is what I know, God cares for us with a gentle, careful love. He always has and always will. Even if we don’t at all see clearly what he is doing in our lives. That in itself is a tremendous thing.
To call you friends is a tremendous thing.
I want to give away three books I read over the summer- as we all free fall into a new season where our calendars expand and responsibilities pile up.
Hand Free Life: 9 Habits for Overcoming Distraction, Living Better, and Loving More by Rachel Macy Stafford
Present-over-Prefect: Leaving Behind Frantic for a Simpler, More Soulful Way of Living by Shauna Niequist
Overwhelmed: Work, Love and Play When No One Has the Time by Brigid Schulte
I pray for you all to be able to slow down this fall season and see the cracks of light streaming through the doors God opens for you.
