God gives us Himself when we invite Him into our lives.
We give Him all of who we are.
He, with us, become the internal strength necessary not only to withstand but to overcome any and all of life's external presures!
We can "make shalom" the atmosphere both in us and around us as we live life together with God and in loving unity with one another.
We don't have to try to double down and work harder at being good on our own.
We don't have to throw the towel in and try to fill ourselves up with sinful alternatives.
We can walk through the pressures of life together with Jesus because He has overcome the world!
Loving Yeshua/Jesus, Loving people... Come as you are and you will be loved!
