My family is my biggest cheerleader. I am married to Maurice, best husband ever, and we have two adult sons who married women with a heart for God. We are blessed to be grandparents and they bring us immense joy. Seeing life through their eyes reminds us to leave our constraints behind and enjoy life as they do.
Friend, Jesus pursues us daily. He will go to the ends of the earth to get our attention and draw us into a relationship with Him. He’s present in the quiet moments of our day and when we’re overwhelmed. He’s walking with us when life is going well and when it's challenging. I’ve found it’s in the hardest of circumstances when He draws us closer to Himself. It’s in those moments, if we allow, our faith can take off and soar. And yes, it's scary to release ourselves into His loving care—relinquishing control is difficult.
Finding time to spend with Jesus each day is challenging. We live busy lives. But, when we create space to spend with Him, He promises to strengthen and refresh our souls. He will sustain us in the everyday moments of life, carrying us, leading us, and bringing us a lasting joy and peace only He can provide.
Jesus wants you to experience joy and contentment no matter your circumstances. He cares about every aspect of your life; nothing is too small or too big to bring to His loving arms. He is faithful to see you through your challenges and He will use them to prepare you for a life of adventure with Him.
I hope you’ll join me on an adventure following Jesus. Together we can encourage one another to connect with Jesus each day. I invite you to join our community by signing up for my monthly newsletter. As we create space in our lives to spend with Him, we’ll find words of encouragement, direction, and learn more about the God who loves us deeply.
