This is one of my best friends’ babies. In her hands is a custom order from someone who’s friend lost her son to suicide last week. A son who was this age once. A son who was fiercely loved and valued and squeezed tight. A son who will always be their baby. My heart cannot fathom the overwhelming grief. Our only hope? To lift our eyes to the One who is our help in every season and situation. Jesus, come quickly.
It seems the Lord is teaching me a deeper (more experiential) meaning of what Paul talks about when he describes servants of God as “sorrowful, yet always rejoicing” (2 Corinthians 6:10a). • You see, there is so much good happening. So much joy, provision, and depth of community. So many doors opening. So many opportunities to minister and be ministered to. So much love and humility and grace and kindness and care that it has made me—quite literally—cry into a plate of chicken and waffles from the mercy of it all. • These scattered beams can only be explained by the Lord, who is dropping joy bombs and grace explosions all around. • But it’s not all chicken and waffles. • (Link to blog post in profile ❤️)
“All in all, it was a never-to-be forgotten summer—one of those summers which comes seldom into any life, but leave a rich heritage of beautiful memories in their going—one of those summers which, in a fortunate combination of delightful weather, delightful friends, and delightful doings, come as near to perfection as anything can come in this world.” -L.M. Montgomery
“[It is] as if [David] had said, Separated from God I am nothing, and all that I attempt to do ends in nothing; but when I come to Him, I find an abundant supply of strength. It is highly necessary for us to consider what we are without God; for no man will cast himself wholly upon God, but he who feels himself in a fainting condition, and who despairs of the sufficiency of his own powers. We will seek nothing from God but what we are conscious of wanting in ourselves. ...the reason why God is represented as a portion is, because He alone is abundantly sufficient for us, and because in Him the perfection of our happiness consists.” -John Calvin, on Psalm 73:26

Hot off the Presses – September/October RTM Magazine

real truth matters magazine

It’s here. It’s here. It’s here.

*Happy dance*

After months of interviewing, writing, designing, editing and praying through each story, it’s like Christmas morning when a new issue of Real Truth Matters Magazine is released.

I’m especially excited about this one.

Official Teaser:

A couple on the brink of divorce.
A small boy torn from his martyred father.
A South American tribe who think Judas Iscariot is the hero in the story of Jesus Christ.
What do these people have in common?
Redemption, grace, and the love of the heavenly Father.
Read their stories plus so many more in the September/October issue of Real Truth Matters Magazine.

Why am I excited about this issue?

Good question. Thank you for asking.

I’m excited because of the missions emphasis with stories of Steve Saint (son of martyred missionary Nate Saint) and the Waodani Indians in Ecuador, of Gary Dawson and the Yanomamo people of Venezuela, of a marriage and family saved, of Elisabeth Elliot and Jonathan Edwards, Charles Spurgeon and so much more!

Download your free issue today and be encouraged, equipped and strengthened for your journey with our sweet Savior.

And most of all, may God be exalted as the One True God to whom all nations will one day bow before. To Him be the honor and glory forever.
