Morning thoughts and my bursting hydrangeas:
Do you struggle with being kind and giving praise, living with a pressure because God’s Word encourages us to do so?
What if you took that pressure off of yourself and realize there might be something going on in your heart that needs a healing touch from Jesus?
The truth is, God doesn’t want us to fake Christianity. He wants to touch our lives, and from there, it is a direct overflow of praise and kindness.
It’s uncontainable, actually.
It’s not manufactured, or fake.
It’s pure, and genuine, straight from the Source.
Yes, scripture after scripture will remind us of our focus, but don’t dismiss what’s hurting in your heart to get there.
He wants to heal every crack and crevice that life broke until it’s filled with His healing salve, and an overflow of His joy will burst from with you, touching everyone who comes near you with His goodness.
Run to Him.
