Isn’t it interesting how words come to mean something?

Like “Babe,” for instance. When I was little it meant a tiny infant. When the movie came out, it meant a pig. And when I got married and heard it from my hubby’s lips, it meant me!

Somewhere along the way “grace” has gotten a reputation for being soft, fluffy, and comfortable. Kind of like being snuggled by so many adorable puppies.

But grace is much more than that – especially when she travels with her companion, Truth.

What We Need More of This Year

This year I’m praying for bravery for us–bravery that holds onto Grace to look Truth square in the eye. Bravery that wrestles the tough questions, the important issues, the real-life stuff.

2018 can be the year we find the courage to be honest with ourselves and with God. And that courage can begin right now.

Here’s to Bravery

Today I pose a tough question. I’d love for us to put on our brave pants and ponder together:

What if I was convinced God loves and likes me right this minute?

Because He absolutely does. And if He really does like and accept you…how might that change your relationship with Him forever?
