As long as we believe the cross is rugged, we will never outgrow the splinters that come with it. We will never learn to go with the “natural grain” of life—a cross of empowerment rather than a cross of deep, wounded rejection and disconnection.
We are all birthed with the God-ordained intention to make miracles. Just the very fact that we are able to sabotage our lives and drive the consistent good from ourselves shows us that we can do miracles. The very fact that we can mess up our lives time and again is itself a modern-day miracle. Yet imagine using our ability to create miracles of greatness rather than miracles of lack, crisis, and limitation.
