Things have been a little heavy in my world lately. Stresses have been adding up at an alarming speed.
I’ve been spending more time with God, trying to find peace amidst the madness.
Here is what He has been showing me.
It took a miracle for me to have a relationship with God.
Actually, it took a lot of miracles.
The virgin conceiving and giving birth.
The miracles he performed in those short decades on earth.
The miracle of a sinless Jesus showing is how to live.
The miracle of his sacrifice on that cross.
And here I sit, wondering if I’m worthy. Or if I can somehow lose his love.
I’ve had conversations with friends, who have been certain that they can’t deserve that forgiveness. Or have never experienced unconditional love.
Jesus died on that cross, knowing that one day, we would be here. That we would still sin.
And he willingly sacrificed his body, his life, for us anyways.
He gave us the miracle of a relationship with God. He wanted us to know the love of the Father.
What are we doing with that chance?
Heavenly Father, thank you so much for sacrificing your one and only Son for someone as deeply flawed as me. Thank you for loving me without condition. I pray that you would open my eyes to the opportunities around me to show your love to others. In faith I pray. Amen.
