November Favorites

November FLEW by, honestly.  I can’t believe we are on the other side of Thanksgiving day, although my wallet after Black Friday leaves me in no doubt that the holidays have indeed passed.  Now, as it’s ALREADY DECEMBER, I wanted to take a moment to look back over some of my favorite things from November.  The list isn’t super long, because I blinked and the month was over, but each item on here was very impactful to me.

Ephesians 3: 12, 14-21 NLT, “Because of Christ and our faith in him, we can now come boldly and confidently into God’s presence.  When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth.  I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit.  Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him.  Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong.  And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is.  May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully.  Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.  Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.  Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.”

May you walk in that bold confidence that Christ has made you 100% righteous today.  You are His and He is yours.  He looks at you through the blood of Jesus and that makes you beautifully clean and redeemed.  May your heart be Christ’s home and may its foundation be built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.  May you be rooted, established, grounded, and made stable, strong, and secure in God’s love.  May these roots dig down into the depths of God’s love for you, the unexplored vastness of it, and may they branch out into others’ lives and hearts, breaking up the roads and fences and walls that we thought were protecting us and showing us where to go.  May we be redirected back to the ancient paths that God ordained for us to walk on, and may our experience of the love of our God fill us to radiant bursting.  May we be made complete in the fullness of God and may that fullness be a witness to those around us.  And most importantly, may all glory be given to God for it.  May God in His fullness and depth blow our minds today and through all generations.
