Sisters, let’s lay down our old self-reliant ways and put every single care into His hands. For it’s not self-confidence that will carry us through, but dependency upon Christ alone. Wherever you may be right now, take a breath and pray. No question is too lofty, no sorrow is too deep, and no past is beyond His Grace. Keep leaning into His arms (pray), digging into His Words, and diving into Gospel-driven community. Sister, Jesus’s work on the cross was enough, and the new Life He gives through the Resurrection is sufficient for every need you have today. Trust Him. Love, Mer ♥️
