See the good, again,
even after hard times.

What does it feel like to come back from something hard, to be able to hope again? Hard things are a part of life. Yet they don’t have to have the final word. They can become the keys to our greatest usability in the kingdom of God—that is, if we let God make good of them, rather than
running away and refusing the growth we truly crave.

If we’re weary of being bossed by our emotions, the hard good can help bring a new way of living with healthy, managed emotions. Where we were once stuck in a place of what if, the transformational process God takes us through provides a compelling shift of perspective to what is. It is the way we not only come back from hard things but also emerge with a richer life.

Let’s Show up… Together!


God’s intention for all of us is that He would do a great work in and through us while we are here on earth. That we would become used by Him for a powerful Kingdom purpose. But just like King Saul in the book of 1 Samuel, we can inhibit God’s plan by our unwillingness to sit with
God through the uncomfortable process of transformation. We might think that the reason we never get anywhere in life is because life is too hard. But this is just one of the myths we hold to that hinders the spiritual potential we have. As we learn a new way of holding steady instead of being consumed by bossy emotions, remain strong rather than hide or deflect, we become wildly used for the Kingdom of God.
