In a “normal” world, Friday’s arrival would be heralded as the beginning of a 3-day party. Nowadays, it’s nothing special. The days have blurred together as the world is locked down. These last three weeks seem like a year.

Kind of a bleak way to start an “encouraging” email, huh? My point is that I get it.

As you know, am spectacularly thick-headed (I can see you all nodding right now…). To illustrate, my Lord and I have had slightly different iterations of this same conversation all my life:

I want this, Lord.
– Do you trust Me?
Yes, but want it!
– Well, don’t be stupid. Trust Me.
But I want it.
Sigh. Yes, Lord.

So, to say we’ve had that conversation a few times over these last 3 weeks is an understatement. I received a helpful article from my alma mater, Moody Bible Institute; it’s attached to this email, as I pray it will encourage you too (Click Here). The bottom line , though, is this:

“…for God did not give us a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind;” (2 Timothy 1:7 YLT)

To that end, I will continue to lead you in live line dancing! Here’s tonight’s playlist:
