Surrender to God's loving embrace. He will catch you. He won’t let you fall. Dare. Dare to believe again.


The harshness of the world is hard to bear at times. Your tender heart bruised by others’ hurtful words and unkind actions.

For many, the past is allowed to spoil… darkening well-meaning hearts. Hurt people, hurt people. It’s natural to want to shut down and to protect yourself. You put up your armor of defensiveness and hide behind walls created by wounds that left unattended can fester and burn—Turning the sweet true nature of your spirit into bitter roots.

When you shut down and hide you close your heart to the healing balm of my love. 

Let my grace touch your broken places.Let my light shine through the cracks as your protective armor softens. Feel the healing that is waiting just for you. It takes a brave heart to believe again. To trust again. Be brave. Be bold. Step out of the shadows and into the light. Lay down your armor. Let my strength give you courage. Let my light shine in you and on you and through you. As my love makes you whole, a deeper tenderness will well up and forth.

Break the chains of ancient patterns. Call out, “enough” and “no more“ to the carrier of pain and robbery.

Rise up —lean in. Step up—climb out. With me by your side, you can do great and immeasurable things!

Come on back. 
Choose to love. 
Choose to forgive.
Choose to let me in. 

Fall back into my arms. Surrender to my loving embrace. I will catch you. I won’t let you fall. Dare. Dare to believe again.
