How are you in your relationship with Christ?
You wake up and determine to choose Jesus every day. Faith, hope, and love guide your steps. He sees your choice, too, and he is well pleased!
But life is so hard, isn’t it? Each day you and I face obstacles that try to separate us from Jesus. These can impact our deepening relationship with Christ. Challenges like rejection, people pleasing, perfectionism, and discouragement stand in our way. Or maybe it’s hopelessness, joylessness, fear, and doubt that we wrestle.
Rejection is a common obstacle many of us face. We reach for the imperfect bandage of perfection only to realize we aren’t. We try to avoid rejection by people-pleasing, only we can’t please everyone. The harder we try, the more we fail. Round and round we go.
Do you feel like you’re circling the same mountain?
Rejection stole much fruit in my life. I grew confused as to who God wanted me to be. I couldn’t hear his voice because other people’s voices were too loud. Then, God and I went on an exploration to reframe rejection’s power and purpose. While on the journey, I discovered disordered thoughts and found four lenses through which to view it. God’s viewpoint changed mine and brought so much freedom.
Are you ready to overcome your mountain?
We can overcome our mountains because you and I have the power to choose what we think and how we think about something. I learned a new way of thinking and I can’t wait to share it with you.
Our Daily Choices Build the Spiritual Habits We Need to Overcome Future Obstacles.
This is where your path and mine meets. Welcome Grace is about extending God’s transformative grace so you and I can both live a fruitful life. A fruitful life honors God, grows closer to Jesus, receives power to endure, and expresses joyful gratitude
We Do This Through Personal Discipleship, Surrender and Worship.
There are times when the only way forward is through Retreat so our focus can be Renewed. Rest brings us the strength we need to Return to fight the everyday battles that attempt to steal our joy, peace, and hope.
The four lenses I share in my latest book, Reframing Rejection: How Looking Through a Different Lens Changes Everything, work in other areas of our lives too. When combined with Retreating, Renewing, Resting, and Returning, they provide a strong framework on which we can grow spiritual fruit.
As you and I journey together through my optional bi-monthly *Grace Notes, we will discover the Power of Rest, Renewal, Retreat, and Return.
*Grace Notes are free subscription devotions delivered via email.
Because it’s not a matter of if we’ll face troubles, but WHEN.
- keep your focus on Jesus,
- align your heart with God’s standards, and
- experience the power of worship.
You CAN stand firm in the face of your everyday troubles—large or small. Let’s Welcome Grace and transform our lives for God’s glory together, shall we?
United, surrendered, and in awe of Christ,
of Welcome Grace
