Jesus says, “Come...abide in me”

Abide means to bear patiently, to wait.

Jesus says, “Come...abide in me”

Abide means to bear patiently, to wait.

When I slow my breath and take note of its rhythms I am forced to surrender other thoughts.

I am intentionally learning to wait- but not for answers, for His presence.


“I am the Way. The Truth and The Life” He says

The Way
The Truth
The Life

The Way

  • the way of peace
  • the way of hope
  • The way of trust
  • Of knowledge
  • Of purpose

The Truth

  • the Truth I seek about who I am in Christ
  • The truth about how loved I am
  • The truth about my purpose
  • All of this is found in Him

The Life

  • the Life lived fully
  • The Life that breathes life into me
  • The Life of sacrifice
  • The Life of meaning


Jesus is always the answer to the questions

Ann Voskamp says “Peace is a person not a feeling”

So I breathe slow
The thoughts race and I push them aside to focus on Him
I purposefully abide, wait, bear patiently … in Christ because I am nothing without Him.

I will go my own way, tell myself a false truth and toil at a life focused on self if not for Him

He is my first step
My steady
My way
My truth
My life

Abide in me

Abide in me
