Thrive . . . Remain . . . Pray!

It’s been quiet here for some time.  Nothing like the reality in my own home and heart.  So much has been happening, but not every story is my own.  I share in the story of others. 

This place—this special place of questioning, reflecting, triumphing in Jesus—is a glimpse of my walk seeking His face every day of each season. 

But sometimes the walk cannot be written until a few more steps have been taken. 
And sometimes, the walk cannot be spoken out of respect for others involved. 

That’s where I find myself this morning.  
Stretched, worn and lovingly embraced!

But I had to share this verse with you.  
Could it be what you needed to hear as well?

“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.”  
Romans 12:12 (NIV)

My Greek geek self dug a little deeper into the original language and found a rich reservoir worth drinking from for some time!

Thrive and be well while expecting good . . .
Remain in the pressing while holding fast to your faith . . .
Be constantly in prayer—continually . . .

May God bless you and keep you wherever He takes you walking today!

Soli deo Gloria!
