The best news for a long journey

When the way seems rough and the burdens heavy. . .

when you’re broken and bent and far more aware of the distance remaining than the distance travelled. . .

when the intimacy for which you long seems a far away dream. . .

know this, dear friends, and rest.

When we give our yes to God there is no opt-out clause for his faithful completion of what He has begun. That wholeness, that intimacy you want, He wants it more.

May God himself, the God who makes everything holy and whole, make you holy and whole, put you together—spirit, soul, and body—and keep you fit for the coming of our Master, Jesus Christ. The One who called you is completely dependable. He will do it! (1 Thessalonians 5:23-24, The Message and New International Version)
