The Weekend Brew: The Way I Should Go

Ryan_sunrise2

This verse brings me so much comfort.  I am reminded that no matter the circumstances, the sun always rises.  Every morning when I wake up I know that God is with me. I know that He has a good plan for my life and that He will make known to me the way that I should go. In a season of uncertainty, I must lean heavily upon Him, asking that He place me directly on the path of His will.

I want to thank you for your prayers and for your grace as I’ve stepped away from writing and reading. Life can become overwhelming at times and when your brain turns to mush because of all of the input, it’s always best to take a step back and allow God to refresh you.

I’ve been working on a little something behind the scenes and hope to reveal it early next week. There will be some changes coming to the blog, some right away, most after the 1st of the year, but all for His glory.

I want to thank Mary for being such a gracious hostess last week. I am truly grateful that God allowed our paths to cross and I am excited for her to share more of her heart hear in the coming months.

Have a blessed weekend friends. I’ll be back soon!

    I’ve been encouraged this week by the Francis Chan quote: Isn’t it a comfort to worship a God we cannot exaggerate.

    I pray your rest is sweet and refreshing!

    Love the verse you chose! The sun does always rise and His mercies are new every morning. We were thinking along the same lines this weekend. Love you friend and I am blessed to be by your side in this lovely writing home!

    Rest prepares us for those things that are coming ahead, it is important and it is necessary or we can’t run the race properly. Praying for His mercies to be revealed in splendor to you each morning.
    Blessings,
    Dawn
