Our longing, our lack is met in God. Friends, if God delights to give the Kingdom—why in the world would we not seek? No fear, only freedom. No need for worry, for there’s grace… As we live in a Kingdom with a King who loves the world more than we ever could, may we learn the ethos of sacrifice. May we learn from Jesus what it means to be human and what He meant when He said the Kingdom’s in our midst.
This is what I’m learning, though: we are not called to have it all figured out. We’re called to be faithful. To show up with our own presence. Purpose and friendship sustain a journey, not a polished five-year plan. No matter where we are on our personal journeys or walks together, there is always more.
Last month, Erin & Jiawei had an absolutely beautiful wedding. Each detail, from Erin's Chinese qipao (made by Jiawei's mom) to the thoughtful ceremony to the bubble tea (yes really!), made their day special. Erin and Jiawei, your wedding was FUN, Christ-honoring, and graceful. Congratulations, Lius!
What happens when Easter is over? How do remember a week, a month, half a year later that He’s still alive and with us? In my head, I know the significance, necessity, and reality of a risen Lord. Yet, once Easter comes and goes, I don’t always consistently, consciously live in a resurrected reality.
Erin and I just met this summer, but we quickly realized we had similar experiences — and, seriously, she exudes joy. She and Jiawei have such a sweet story! They wanted to take some photos in a bubble tea shop, to which I gladly obliged. Congratulations, Erin and Jiawei!
