  1. Beautiful prayer, dear Julie. Yes, Lord, help us to surrender our days to You, and to embrace the suffering as we embrace You. I am continuing to pray for you, even as I am so grateful for the all of the prayers you have offered for me. May God be glorified through it all. #Praywithoutceasing

  2. Julie, Powerful 4 elements. I especially like reject self-help. I have written about this before. We were wired from the Creator to need His help, yet, we learn self-help. I’m intentional to lay down the lie of self-help. We need God-help, Jesus-help, and help from the Holy Spirit. Beautiful post.

    1. Amen, Karen! Yes the lie of self-help. Just give me Jesus in the morning, at noon and while I sleep. My heart is heavy with the way some messengers of God dilute His truth and the way devil twists His saving to saving ourselves. Oh Lord, yes, we need You. Have a blessed rest of this day, sister.


  3. During my personal Lenten journey, I try to embrace the journey of Jesus as He walks to the Cross. His witness humbles me, yet there is mighty strength in His Word.

    I will be praying for Jackson as well as for his entire family. I understand the frustration with chronic illness or pain as others in my family deal with these situations. God’s peace!
