"Walking in the Spirit sometimes means...being the one that needs.

As I learn to need, I learn to receive, and suddenly I understand why Paul was so keen on celebrating his weaknesses (2 Corinthians 12:9). Because grace canโ€™t penetrate hardened hearts. Grace, freely given to all, can only be received by those soft and open enough to let it in.

By those ready to surrender to and abide in Love.

By those humble enough to be constantly needy."


You are a gentle and loving guide who leads us into the arms of our Savior reminding us that being in need...needing to receive, is not a weakness, it's a blessing. Being humble enough to recognize our need and bring it to our great Shepherd with open hands allows us to behold our Father's great love of us.

Thank you for a heart turned toward God and writing that's turned to us. You are fabulous guide, and a great example of Paul's words, "Follow me as I follow Christ."

Much love, my friend.
