the mosaic life community

Living out the Christian life authentically requires daily submitting the pieces of our broken life to God, the Ultimate Artist, allowing him to craft them into a beautiful mosaic masterpiece that can be used for His glory. It's a moment by moment journey of releasing fear & control, living intentionally, and embracing the freedom of Christ.

You Are Loved Beyond Measure {Sunday Scripture}

On this day of rest, may you settle into God’s presence and seek His face, allowing Him to fill you to overflowing. Let your guard down a bit and soak up the truth of His passionate, expansive love for you.

Remember your strength comes from His word, the roots of your faith, and commit to making it a priority in your life this week.

As you offer your broken pieces and allow Him to craft your life into a work of art, His masterpiece, this is my prayer for you today:

I ask that he will strengthen you in your inner selves from the riches of his glory through the Spirit.

I ask that Christ will live in your hearts through faith.

As a result of having strong roots in love, I ask that you’ll have the power to grasp love’s width and length, height and depth, together with all believers. 

I ask that you’ll know the love of Christ that is beyond knowledge so that you will be filled entirely with the fullness of God.

Glory to God, who is able to do far beyond all that we could ask or imagine by his power at work within us; glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus for all generations, forever and always.

Amen.                                      

Ephesians 3:16-21

Do you have a friend who needs to hear that she’s unconditionally loved by God? Maybe she needs a reminder that God can do infinitely more than what she ever could imagine possible in her situation.

Digging Deep Roots & Living in the Light {Worship Wednesday}

Sometimes we forget.

Not the kind of forget where you head to the grocery store without a list (again) and run in for a couple of things but forget the milk…even though your 5 year old reminded you that she doesn’t like to eat dry cereal and mommy, would you please please please get milk.

No, not that kind of forget.

The kind of forget where we live out life separate from what’s true. Where our reality and our perspective totally and completely misses the mark of the truth.

And the result? We end up grasping for the light and living instead in the darkness.

Sometimes it happens only for a moment and our minds swirl with untruths that scatter our thoughts and erupt into frustration or outright anger. Other times, well, we live life like the truth doesn’t exist at all.

And friends, living life outside of God’s truth, outside His protective covering, well it surely doesn’t make for a joy-filled life.

And yet we try to figure out life on our own, seeking solutions in the next self-help book on Amazon or our friends on Facebook or the magazine on the rack in the grocery store checkout line.

But what if the solution to our longing is right in front of us?

Proverbs 119 tells us to hide God’s word in our hearts and when we do, His word will lead us into truth.

So today, dear friend, I’m sharing some truth as we seek to plant deep roots in God’s word so our lives will be lived out in the light of His truth instead of the shadows of the darkness.

“LORD, there is no one like you!

      For you are great, and your name is full of power.”

Jeremiah 10:6

And so, we read truth. Take a moment to soak it in.

It’s God who is great. It’s God who has the power in our lives. There is no one like Him. There is no need to seek power and truth in other places. It He who teaches us, corrects us, and guides us into truth.

Jeremiah 10:6 Great are you Lord!

Today for Worship Wednesday, reflect on the words of God’s power in your life. Let the words and the music wash over your soul to remind you of truth you may have forgotten along the way.

Great Are You Lord from All Sons and Daughters {LIVE}

You give life, You are love
You bring light to the darkness
You give hope, You restore
Every heart that is broken
Great are You, Lord

It’s Your breath in our lungs
So we pour out our praise
We pour out our praise
It’s Your breath in our lungs
So we pour out our praise to You only

You give life, You are love
You bring light to the darkness
You give hope, You restore
Every heart that is broken
Great are You, Lord

All the earth will shout Your praise
Our hearts will cry, these bones will sing
Great are You, Lord

For today, let’s pour out our praise to the One who brings light to our darkness, restores our broken pieces, and gives hope in the middle of our hopelessness. Great are you, Lord!
