hearts connected

Now may the God Who gives the power of patient endurance (steadfastness) and Who supplies encouragement, grant you to live in such mutual harmony and such full sympathy with one another in accord with Christ Jesus. That together you may [unanimously] with united hearts and one voice, praise and glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah).

~Romans 15:5-6

“i love how God connects so many hearts and passions and visions and love. #beautiful”

“i know i said this earlier, but i SO love how god connects hearts even across oceans”

“sometimes the real, authentic pieces of my heart seem too much, too messy, but i’d rather have and share that than fake.”

Today, I’m thankful.  I see so clearly God’s hand working across the canvas painting away to make all things beautiful.  I see united hearts coming together to encourage, uplift, and spur each other on toward Him.  Hearts connected to bring Him glory.  These hearts that send hugs when arms are far apart.  Loving on each other from afar and from near.  I’m learning to love the ache that comes with loving so many people all across the world: from Guatemala to Japan to Washington to DC to California to Australia to Colorado to South Africa to Minnesota. Because even from afar these hearts are connected. Even if these hearts have yet to meet. And in the end,  He’s holding our hearts and we’re resting in His heart.

For that. I am thankful.
