God alone is limitless. In the early days and weeks of motherhood, I was anxious because I was constantly fighting my own God-given limits. Anxiousness was a signpost pointing me to the truth that I was never designed to do “all the things.”
People most often talk about grief in the context of someone’s death, but it shows up in other contexts too. Grief is an emotion we experience when we’ve lost something.
Feelings are God-given responses. It’s the “why” behind them and what we do with them that matters.
We often focus on pruning only as evidence of past sin. But what if God also wants us to see it as evidence of the Holy Spirit’s continuing work in our lives?
I’m not sure we always think of giving people space to think as an act of love, but people are hungry right now for space to “think.”
