Joy and sorrow intermingle in our days … and God is working in both.

It’s in our deepest valleys we learn to trust Him best. It’s in the disappointments – amidst the suffering – that we see God is working.
Are you having a hard time connecting with your kids? In this post, I’ll share why using your strengths may be the most natural place to connect.
There’s a hope—a peace in the storm—we find by looking at how God’s carried us through dark seasons, allowing us to trust no matter how bad things are right now, joy is on the way.
Whether it’s quarantine barriers, not fully trusting He can help, being overwhelmed by distractions, crippled by fear, or unwilling to release control, why do we wait to take our fears, doubts, worries, and control to Him?
Our God is longing to hear our voice, for us to trust him with our fears and with our hearts…
What if we met people where they’re at rather than where we want them to be?
What if we used this time of being home with our family, this time of putting schedules and pickups and activities on hold, to really learn each other better?
When you wake up tomorrow, you can try to be kinder and love harder. You can try to not watch TV (or eat chocolate or scroll Facebook) even if you slipped today.
In God’s eyes, there is only love and nothing you’ve ever done, do, or will do can change that.
Saying, “No” usually frees up the family for a greater, “Yes” – family board game nights, time to host friends, kids actually enjoying their presents, etc. – you’ll never regret.
