Hi there! This is day 18 of a series I’m writing this October called 31 Days of Hope in Brokenness. You can find the entire series here: 31 Days of Hope in Brokenness.
Today, I have a song for you. I want you to hear this story with your heart instead of your ears, as much as you can:
I want to talk about some different sorts of nothing that this song makes me think about. First: nothing, and I mean nothing, can separate you from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. If you think you have messed up so badly that you have wrecked His plans for you and your life, I have good news, friend: you are not that powerful. There is nothing you can do to screw up His love for you or your calling in Him. You can run – He will send armies of angels after you to help you find your way back. You can stop participating – He will wait patiently. Face it, God just adores you. I know, it’s crazy. Sometimes I fall asleep on the couch underneath a pile of warm laundry I’m supposed to be folding and wake up three hours later with one dried-out contact lens stuck to my face, and God still loves me. It’s probably the most unbelievable truth about life that I know. His love is big and wide and generous, okay? He loves us at our best and at our worst. (Bless.) (more…)
