Simple Truths

Year 6 - Day 267: Today, I am grateful for simple truths.

"Love chooses. Fear reacts." -Lisa Bevere

What a simple, accurate truth. Perspective and love are our super powers. They change everything. 

We are not perfect. We are works in progress. The enemy knows our weaknesses, just as the Holy Spirit infuses us with self-control and the opportunity to choose love over fear. The outcome is determined by where we place our trust. 

We can be weary, but lift our heads and take on the day. When we are refreshed, we are dangerous to the one who wants to steal our joy and steal our peace. Love chooses. Fear reacts. 

Focus on the one who helps us see through eyes of love and fear loses its foothold. 

So do not throw away this confident trust in the Lord. Remember the great reward it brings you! Patient endurance is what you need now, so that you will continue to do God’s will. Then you will receive all that he has promised. -Hebrews 10:35-36

We can be strong and courageous because He is the great "I AM". In Him, we can live... and move and truly be. Fearlessly, pursuing the heart of Jesus. 

Today, I am grateful for simple truths.
