Fulfilled Giveaway

Posted on

I’m so excited to share today about my friend Danise Jurado’s book Fulfilled: Learning to Live the Life God Promised.

Fulfilled by Danise Jurado

What a blessing it is to see your friends’ 10-year dream of telling her story become a reality.

Danise has had hard lessons learning to be Fulfilled and I love the way she encourages us to do the same. Her love for God is so evident as she shares His truths that helped her on her journey.

My favorite part of Fulfilled is Danise sharing her love of roller coasters:

“I love the adrenaline rush as I twist and turn,
hands up, smiling, and laughing through
all the ups and downs.
There is something to be said
about living our lives with that kind of surrender
to God through all the unpredictable twists of life.
It’s a priceless gift to discover a faith
that is so strong that we can enjoy life
no matter the ups and downs we face.”

 Can you imagine living life Fulfilled that way?

Let's surrender to God through all the unpredictable twists of life. Denise Jurado - Fulfilled

Danise is also generously donating 50% of the Fulfilled proceeds to The Dream Center, where she is a pastoral counselor. Be sure to check out all the great work they are doing!

What is your safe word?

Posted on

This week in The Mended Heart study, a key word is safe.

“You quickly learn that not every person is a safe place
to express your grief or questions.
They love you, or care about you,
or perhaps just know about you or your loss,
but they do not know what to say to you in this season.
But there is a safe place for you.”
~ Suzie Eller

My sweet friend Sarah Travis taught us how to do a topical word study this week. (Be sure and grab this FREE download to use in your study).

P31OBS Topical Word Study

When are hearts are safe we feel protected, secure, unharmed, rescued.

And when they’re not? We feel insecure and unprotected.

I don’t know about you, but this girl’s heart is so tired of feeling insecure and unprotected. So let’s find a safe word in God’s Word to tuck into our hearts:

Fearing people is a dangerous trap,
but trusting the Lord means safety.
Proverbs 29:25 (NLT)

So you see, the Lord knows how to rescue
godly people from their trials,
even while keeping the wicked under punishment
until the day of final judgment.
2 Peter 2:9 (NLT)

I am suffering and in pain. Rescue me, O God,
by your saving power.
Psalm 69:29 (NLT)

We put our hope in the Lord.
He is our help and our shield.
Psalm 33:20 (NLT)

Remember what Suzie said? “There is a safe place for you.”

Tuck this short little prayer into your heart today: Lord, rescue me. Shield me. I trust in You to keep me safe.

Are you studying The Mended Heart this summer? I’d love to hear what God is teaching you. If not, it’s never too late to join us.
