This Week’s Theme: Tension


Does that word make you want to cringe? Run away and hide? It feels all too familiar these days.

Yet when you think about walking on a tightrope, it is possible because two ends are held in tension. When one end goes slack, it doesn’t work very well. This resembles so many aspects of our lives too, doesn’t it?

Maybe this week can be the check-in that we need. Instead of focusing on all the negative connotations of tension that increase our blood pressure, let’s think about the things that must be held in tension, in balance, in our hearts, lives and Kingdom work.

Join our writers over on the blog this week as they share their stories of heart examinations and tender stretching from the Father with honesty and vulnerability. Your stories are welcome too! Share in the comments or use #VelvetAshesTension on social media.
