Daily inspiration

This is OUR time:

Isaiah 61

1 The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me,
because the LORD has anointed me
to preach good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives
and release from darkness for the prisoners, [a]
2 to proclaim the year of the LORD's favor
and the day of vengeance of our God,
to comfort all who mourn

For some reason, I've just realized in the past few weeks that I am truly living out my calling. God has called all of us to take care of the widows and orphans, the poor and oppressed, the brokenhearted and captives. We are all called to bring the Kingdom of God to earth, it is just the means that we do so that is different for each of us. Mine is art. What is yours?

I'm so excited to see what the next few weeks will bring. My two worlds have collided. It has felt almost natural that all of my best friends from Germany are now in my hometown meeting all my best friends in TN. I've been so inspired by the creativity that looms over this city. The heart behind what people do here is so authentic and heartfelt.

My new friend Laura has a huge heart for the Lord, loves to serve, and is the most creative person I met in Nazareth by far :)
