I’ve been thinking a lot about roads I’ve walked down. The “How’d I get heres?” and “What if I had chosen differentlies?” have been many. Maybe it’s the turn of the New Year. The season calls us naturally to reflection…reevaluation.
I’ve made a lot of mistakes. The roots of those errors go back years and I feel like I’m just getting a grip on how the actions of the young J have effected this old J. In the midst of it all I am being swallowed alive by this grace that will not let me go. I don’t understand how, yet I know that Jesus has all well in hand. He is using the life of this poor sinner made saint for His glory. In the midst of the reducing I have walked through Jesus has made me all His. My failures and faults He has absorbed into His mercy. He has made my mess a message!
If he did it for me, HE will most assuredly do it for you!
Never give up. No matter what has been lost God can restore!
God bless you for the hope in this, Pastor J. I loved “He turned my mess into a message.” And how His mercy absorbs our mistakes. Wow! Thank you!
You are welcome Deb! Jesus blood is our hope and stay!
“Most laws condemn the soul and pronounce sentence. The result of the law of my God is perfect. It condemns but forgives. It restores – more than abundantly – what it takes away.” I love this quote as well as the photo. God always keeps His promises. In His perfect timing it will be done! A-men and A-men!!!
Amen! In perfect timing I shall hold on to that today Deb.
I love it–“swallowed alive by His grace”, and “He’s made my mess into a message”–this is testimony at its finest, and I say a heartfelt AMEN, in agreement. God bless you and the fam–love, sis Caddo
“He turned my mess into a message” – He is expert at this!
What an amazing God!
Yes He is!
