Grace & Truth For When You Need It Most

July 31, 2020 |
Grace and truth: a weekly Christian link-up

When I get overly stressed out, my left eyelid starts to twitch.

It’s probably the closest thing I have to a nervous tick.

But it doesn’t happen during stressful situations, it happens when stress builds up. It’s like my body needs an outlet and it decided (without consulting me) that was it.

The nerve.

It doesn’t happen often. However, it is happening now.

Which is why I decided it was time to take a blog-cation. I’ll be sharing more in the days to come, but after discussing it with Valerie and the other hostesses of the Grace and Truth Link-Up, we wanted to let you know that Grace and Truth will still be here each and every Friday.

While we won’t be posting a feature while we are on our blog-cation, you will be able to link-up. We also encourage you to visit the other hostesses who will be featuring bloggers each Friday. And we’ll be back in September, all rested up and (hopefully) twitch free.

If you’re a reader, we encourage you to visit new bloggers and discover women who love Jesus as much as you do. Whoever you are, we hope you’ll meet Jesus here.

Grace and Truth Link Up Rules

1.) Follow your hosts via their blog and/or social media channels. This is not mandatory, but appreciated!

2.) Leave 1-2 of your most recent Christian Living posts. Please do not link DIY, Crafts, Recipes, etc. Links of this kind will be deleted. We also reserve the right to delete posts that don’t align with the theme or that are deemed by the hostesses to be inappropriate.

3.) Visit 1-2 other links and leave a meaningful comment! We want to encourage community, so please don’t link and run!

In order to be featured next week:

4.) Grab a button and/or link back to one of our hosts to encourage new linkers. This is not mandatory to participate, but is required to be featured.

Each host will choose one blog to feature in their Grace & Truth Link-Up post and promote via their social media channels next week.

    Thanks for sharing these five posts. I was particularly drawn to the anxiety one and saved it to read today.

    Praying you get some rest! Yesterday my eye started to twitch as well. I need to play more and work less this week. My granddaughters are coming later in the week so once I get things prepared for them, I want to chill a little more than normal.
