The Best Gift You Can Give to Yourself


Presence is the best gift you can give to yourself. Live wholly and thankfully in the season you are in. I firmly believe that’s where joy abounds.

Don’t balk because life is a process. God is not just about the destination. He is all about the journey because that’s where he does His work and His work is beautiful. 

If we disengage from the hard and the heavy, we lose ourselves. When we press in, that’s where riches are found. 

God is the I AM God and although He was there before time and will be when time as we know it ends, He chose you to be in this particular place and season for a reason. He is infinitely present in the here and now and when we join him with our full presence, that’s where intimacy begins.
