Welcome!

Hi, there. I’m Jen. :)

I’m not certain how you found your way to this website, but maybe like me, you’re looking for something more in this life. (If you’re after your susbscriber freebie and you’ve been here before, scroll to the bottom ~ wink)

We all want that abundant life, don’t we? Yet we who trust in the saving grace of the cross so easily grow weary and discouraged.

We fear we just might fail at this faith thing, this marriage thing, this parenting thing, this loving the world thing…

If we’re not careful, we’ll let the enemy of our souls convince us that we’re incapable of living the kind of life befitting a child of the One True King.

And in reaction to that fear, we’ll just as easily become slaves to perfectionism, constantly striving to please God instead of realizing that He is already pleased in us.  We’ll fall prey to the snares of comparison, doubt, sin, and defeat.

That’s just not the life we want, is it?

The good news is, that’s not the life our Father wants for us, either. He created us for more than this!

He wants children who understand their identity in Christ, who abide in the Vine, who live on mission even in the midst of their everyday struggles.

He wants children who light up the world one obedient step at a time.

We can’t do it on our own, and there’s no shame in that. In fact, there’s only comfort – the comfort of not having to handle it alone, the comfort of laying that burden down once and for all.

That’s the beauty of embracing our work-in-progress status, because it frees us to be exactly whom He created us to be.

No more pressure to perform.

No more worrying that we aren’t enough.

No more remaining “stuck.”

We can quit looking around at others and focus hard on Jesus, the Author and Perfector of our faith.

Because we know and trust He is still at work in us,

and He won’t quit until that work is complete.

We can be confident of this!

 

If you relate to any of the above, then you find yourself in good company, friend. :)
