Hope is still my battle cry!

On Sunday at our church’s Christmas carol service I had the privilege of sharing what God has been talking to me about over the past few months.

These videos, made by my incredibly talented friends Georgia Hrubiak and Alastair Errett, talk a little about how God can bring us through circumstances from which we thought we’d never recover.

2017 has been the toughest year of my life and I never thought I’d be ending the year detemined to remain fixed on hope, faith and trust. I’m still working my way back to a place where my healing heart sings with joy, but scattered along the path behind me now is a trail of gold that God has created out of this year’s pain and sadness. And I marvel at His redemptive power and love for me.

Here I am. And here you are. I hope these short videos encourage your heart.

(P.s. yep, that’s right – Part Two entitled Perfect Peace is the one to watch first!).

Glory in the Darkest Place

Christmas is joy and fun and laughter and grace (bring it on!) but it can also be sitting with situations that make us sad and determining to look to unrelenting hope in the face of darkness. Perhaps it’s depression or the loss of a loved one or dashed dreams or an unexpected diagnosis. Yet still there is the Light, burning brightly, on which we fix our gaze. This song says it beautifully…
