03/29…of the day

Verse of the Day:
“My salvation and my honor depend on God; he is my mighty rock, my refuge.”
~ Psalm 62:7

Quote of the Day:
“The two most important days in your life: The day you were born, and the day you find out why .”
~Mark Twain

Excerpt of the Day:
“It’s an important question because to truly be able to love God and love others, to move with God to rescue, restore, and redeem humanity, we have got to know who we are.

Who do you think you are?
I’ve started to answer that question with one imperfect phrase: I am a beloved warrior.

I’m a pacifist so my definition of warrior is a bit more spiritual, perhaps. I see it as an advocate or a peace maker or a shalom prophet, a warrior living into the Kingdom of God, a worshipper, a disciple – courageous and unafraid.

Who do you think you are?
Warrior.

Who do you think you are?
Beloved.

We are worthy of a rescue, worth saving, worth loving. We are the one sheep in the ninety-nine worth leaving everything behind to rescue. We are redeemed. We are whole.

Loved. You are loved. You are loved. You can engage in your life from a place of love because you are.

We believe that we’re only worthy of love if… if we do this or if we do that. That’s what our culture or our broken world tells us, right?

But Jesus does not love us conditionally.”
~ “In which you are a Beloved Warrior” by Sarah Bessey
Seriously one of my favorite authors right now.

Currently listening to “Girl On Fire” by Alicia Keys
