Several months ago, I sat at a table with half a dozen women — all of them rock-solid followers of Jesus. We shared deeply from our hearts about what our struggles were, and what we needed most right now to get through the upcoming year.
We also talked about what we felt was missing in our lives. The range of responses was different, but at the core, every woman expressed the same deep need:
Trouble is, we didn’t know whether we could even admit that. Could we, as Jesus followers, really desire happiness?
Does God care about our happiness? Or is He more concerned with our holiness?
I wish I had known then, what I have been learning lately. Oh friend, it’s exciting!
This, right here? This is the very good news that I would have shared with the women. Join me at The High Calling.
