Today was a rare Michigan October day.  Sunny, warm, beautiful.
Encourages you, makes you slow down - observe - enjoy.
October in the Great Lakes State is changeable.  Volatile. 
Chill and windy one day.  Bright and still the next. 
Should you open windows or light a fire in the wood stove?

Much like our moods.  Every changing and affected by our surroundings.
But unlike our faith.  Where we are firm, steadfast, and confident.
Finding joy in Christ, regardless of our circumstances.
Depending wholly on the Creator and trusting in Him.

Trusting Him to grow us, change us, refine and reveal us. 
Reminding us of our identity in Christ.

"Forgiven beloved
Hidden in Christ
Made in the image of the Giver of Life
Righteous and holy
Reborn and remade
Accepted and holy, this is our new name"
~from "I Am New" by Jason Gray
