As a culture, we sure do tend to fight against rest! This week's featured post is a good reminder of why it's a good idea to slow down. It's called How Rest Can Redeem Our Homes by Nicole, who writes at Redeeming Home. I hope you'll take a moment to go, say hello, and be encouraged as I was!
Prayer is a powerful tool that we have at our disposal when it comes to our marriages. I loved this week's post by Valerie Murray (Cord of 6) called, 10 Powerful Reasons to Pray for Your Marriage.
It's this week's featured post for the Grace and Truth link up. I hope you'll take a moment to go, say hello, and be encouraged as I was!
If we are to follow the example of Jesus, the Good Shepherd, then we need to love his "sheep" unconditionally and wholeheartedly, the way he does. That's what this week's featured post is all about. It's titled, Searching for a Lost Sheep- and it's written by Julia of Committing My Way. I was really encouraged and challenged by Julia's post. I hope you'll take a moment to go and say hello!
Sometimes it's so easy to forget the most important thing. As children of God, we are his and he is ours. That's the topic of today's featured post by Stacey Pardoe. It's titled, For the Worn, the Weary, and the Failures. I was deeply encouraged by Stacey's words. I hope you'll take a moment to go, say hello, and be reminded of the most important thing.
This week's featured post for Grace and Truth link up is a message that can never be told too many times. It's called, Making Space for Jesus, by Tammy Kennington. It's all about the beauty of the relationship we can have with God. Tammy also offers a free printable with this post. I hope you'll take a moment to go, be encouraged, and say hello!
How Has Empty Impacted Your Life? It's the question and the title of this week's featured post for Grace and Truth. This wonderful post is by Carlie Lake, who writes at From Dust Towards the Heavens. Is there an emptiness in your life that brings pain? There's another way to think about empty. Carlie's post is all about this. Her words are an encouragement and I hope you'll take a moment to go, say hello, and be blessed as I was.
Do you love routine? I know I do! It's comfortable. But there's something to consider. This week's featured post for the Grace and Truth link up is by Laura Rath who writes at Journey in Faith. It's titled When Routine Becomes an Idol.
Blessing to you on this Easter weekend!
The movie, Passion of the Christ, is so hard for me to watch, and I haven't seen it in a long while, but after reading this week's featured post I want to watch it again in observance of Easter. I want to remember what Jesus did for me and to feel it, deeply. I want to prepare my heart for Easter. Preparing Our Hearts for Easter is the title of the post I'd like to highlight today for Grace and Truth. It's by Rachel, writer at Be Thee Inspired. I hope you'll take a moment to go and say hello and be inspired by her words.
It's not always easy to love people the way God has called us to do- but with God's help we can. I loved Deb's practical suggestions on how to do just this in this week's featured post for Grace and Truth. Deb writes at Counting My Blessings and her post is called, Practical Things to Do When You Just Can't People. I hope you'll take a moment to go, say hello, and be inspired as I was.
