This Week’s Theme: Sacrifice

Can I invite you all to join me (Danielle) in a wrestling match this week? Actually, chances are, you’re already involved in this wrestling match, so how about we all just do it together?

The wrestling opponents are “Sacrifice” and “Self Care.” You know the tension, right? What does it mean to die to self, to take up our cross, to follow Jesus AND find rest and sanity and sustainability for our souls?

What does Scripture really teach us about sacrifice?

Is there a time to throw in the towel and say, “This is too much sacrifice!”?

What sacrifices are weighing heaviest for you right now? What sacrifices have become lighter?

We want to hear all your thoughts as we wrestle together with this tension. Share on Instagram this week with #VelvetAshesSacrifice and bring your blog posts to The Grove beginning Thursday 6pm EST.

This is a big topic that drastically affects how we live and the state of our hearts. So we pray, “Jesus, give us your eyes this week. We need your clarity and truth. Guide us as we seek your heart in this. Amen.”

    I loved this week’s theme of “sacrifice,” and how much is too much. I thought Danielle did a wonderful job balancing this tension in a healthy way and communicating her thoughts.

What do you think?
