Notes for a new week.


1. Do you feel it? The anxiety of an anxious world? Here is a beautiful poem written by Glen Scrivener and published by The Gospel Coalition. It contains beautiful reminders for each of us.


For our anxious little realm,

for the fears that overwhelm . . .

There is a throne.

For mistakes we can’t forget, and the sins that still beset . . .


We have a Lamb.

For our lost and lonely hearts, for our gnarled and tangled paths . . .

We have a Shepherd.


For our dry and listless souls, and our thirst for being whole . . .

We have a Stream.


For regret and ravaged years, for all sweet and bitter tears . . .

We have a Father.


For treks through burning sands, To our home in promised lands,

This hope till all is done: Our God the three-in-one.

4. Faith Focus:


Every gift we have is a sign of God’s grace. Every gift is a token of his kindness. And for those who have eyes to see, every gift shows us more of God. This is a good reminder as we complete Thanksgiving celebrations and look forward to celebrating the Greatest Gift of all in December.

5. Calm for your week:


This photo from a quiet morning walk in misty woods where sunshine is starting to break through. Can you feel the sunshine behind the shadows? You may not see it in your journey today, but I promise, it's there.


"Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him." Colossians 3:15-17


Have a GREAT week! Grow. Bloom. Repeat.
