IF GOD WROTE YOU A LETTER
I know you and I love you. I want those two truths to sustain you—to be all that you need. When you those truths, your life will forever change. I want to be included in every moment of your life and every part of it. Don’t limit our time together to a few hours on Sunday—seek me each moment of your day. I have so much I want to give you. In fact, I want to give you more life than you can imagine. I want you to know me as a child does and experience life with full abandon. That can begin right now—today.
Start with trusting me. Regardless of what challenge you’re facing—or the one that will come—remember that I am present. You are never alone. Never. The darkness can look and feel overwhelming, but I am greater than the darkness. I will give you what you need when you need it. And I will equip you to walk through dark valleys successfully.
