  1. That box is a coffin. But “you died and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.” (Col 3:3)

    Thanks for preaching the gospel. Love you!

  2. Beautiful truth…the kind that sets men free.
    Been feeling a bit “I’ts all up to ME” and “To Do-ish ” lately. Thank you Emma.

  3. 1st half with the open box – definition of me.
    Box is so full it’s hard to close. Trying though.
    One step at a time. Listening to sermons, especially if I’m not brave enough to go to Church (especially the big one I plan to)

  4. This is soooo what I need to read this week. Thank you once again. May have to print out and stick somewhere too.

  5. They are awesome promises. I’ve got a similar list by my bed and next to the mirror – first thing in the morning I need to top up, because during the night it somehow leaks out!
