My stress level is very very high. So, here is what we are going to do.
I am going to post our Ephesians passage tonight, and will spend the entire weekend not worrying about how I “should” write or I “should” check my Facebook. I am going to cry my eyes out. I am going to pray. I am going vocalize my disappointment, at least internally. And I am going to rest and enjoy our Lord’s presence. Pray for me, please. I have to be pretty severe, in order to take any breaks from Gracefully Overcoming.
“Don’t forget that you Gentiles used to be outsiders. You were called “uncircumcised heathens” by the Jews, who were proud of their circumcision, even though it affected only their bodies and not their hearts. In those days you were living apart from Christ. You were excluded from citizenship among the people of Israel, and you did not know the covenant promises God had made to them. You lived in this world without God and without hope. But now you have been united with Christ Jesus. Once you were far away from God, but now you have been brought near to him through the blood of Christ (Ephesians 2:11-13 NLT).”
