finger here; see my hands.
Reach out your hand and put it into my
side. Stop doubting and believe.’”
(John 20:27 NIV)
I felt the
nudge to stop doing something I had been doing, mostly by rote. Several signals
were pecking at my brain to remind me that God prepares us for all that He is

complete control of our biggest messes, making beautiful masterpieces. The best
IS yet to come!
look forward to all the wonderful things headed my way. I hope you will, too!
