The Colors of Hope

Experiencing and expressing pain is always vulnerable, but you know what? Experiencing and expressing joy is vulnerable too. I’m so glad God is with us for both. Could it be we feel overwhelmed and filled with unrest because we are afraid to rejoice? I’m glad we don’t have to feel brave to bravely open our hearts to the joy, hope, and healing of God.

We can open up.

At Least

We wouldn’t choose half the things we experience in life. But the bright side is being side-by-side.

You live the bright side every day you get to be side-by-side.
