…really, it’s okay, right where you are right now, right how things are, right how you feel:
You are broken —- and Chosen.
You don’t have to hide your brokenness —- because it doesn’t change your chosenness.
You don’t have to deny your brokenness — because nothing can ever deny you of your chosenness.
You don’t have to fear your brokenness — because there’s nothing that can undo your chosenness.
You may feel broken– but you are His Chosen, His own, His Beloved.

That’s all for this weekend, friends.

Go slow. Be God-struck. Grant grace. Live Truth.

Give Thanks. Love well. Re – joy, re- joy, ‘re- joys’ again
