within the beauty & the broken

5pastel oceans3 frameblog

as i spend a little time reflecting on 2014, both the beauty & the broken, i know one thing…my hope alone is in jesus.

during the times of beautiful i know all gifts are from him. may i always have a heart of gratitude.

and during the times of broken i know that he makes all things beautiful in his time, for his glory. may i always trust in his goodness and unfailing love.

he meets us right where we are. every single day. as we walk through valleys of shadows as well as when we reach the mountain tops of glory.

by the seashore of peace as well as within the torrential unknown, he is always there.

in his name we have protection & provision, we have grace and mercy, strength & healing.

and every day of 2015 may we know this promise~

 that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 

so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—

that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth,

and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us

to him be glory

Christan Perona - Love this. Needed this, Paige. “…To know the love that surpasses knowledge.” I’m clinging to the Presence that will never leave me in the shadows and on the hilltops. Thank you for this reminder. Happy New Year to you and yours.
