This week’s theme is “Past”. A loaded word. We know.
Some of us avoid thinking about the past at all costs, not wanting to walk into the dark room of pain that lies behind that door. Others have taken the hand of Jesus and bravely cracked open the door and trusted Him to be the lamp in those dark places.
Wherever you are on that spectrum, we invite you to listen this week for God’s invitation to you. It might be a gentle invitation to trust Him with that first glance back. Or an invitation to reflect deeply on where He’s met you in your past. Maybe it’s an invitation to rejoice in His faithfulness.
Whatever His invitation to you, this we are certain of – He loves you with an everlasting love and is drawing you with His lovingkindness. To rejoice, to rest, to embrace, to forgive, to be forgiven, to mourn, to be comforted, to experience His presence in your past. And give you hope for your future.
If you need a safe community in which to wrestle this out, join us this week for some amazing posts. Bring your own blog post link ups to The Grove beginning Thursday at 6pm EST.
