Recently acquired these shoes and I’ve wanted to wear them everyday. (Long comfy shirt, American Eagle jeggings, and these shoes = my favorite, most worn outfit.)
Tony Reinke’s Newton on the Christian Life: To Live Is Christ.
The ascended Christ in heaven is the foundation of our hopes, the source of our sublimest joys, and the sufficient, the only sufficient, answer to all the suggestions by which guilt, fear, unbelief, and Satan, fight against our peace. Surrounded as we are with enemies and difficulties, we plead, against every accusation and threatening, that our Head is in heaven; we have an Advocate with the Father, a High Priest upon the throne, who, because he ever liveth to make intercession, is able to save to the uttermost [Heb. 7:25].
A new practice of making our bed in the morning and sitting in the center for a full 5 minutes. No reading, no music, simply quiet. Praying, not praying. A moment of stillness.
