Brave to love again. To love God, yourself and others in your world. Brave to dream again. To believe God for the new, and that your best days are yet to be. Brave to trust again. That God loves you and is committed to you; he is sticking with you. Brave to dance again. That failure does not define you; he is the God of new beginnings.
What is the “Christian life” all about? Studying the Bible, attending church, cultivating a prayer life, witnessing to others—those are all good. But is that really what Jesus has in mind?
