There’s only grace
There’s only love
There’s only mercy and believe me it’s enough
Your sins are gone
Without a trace
And there’s nothing left now
There’s only grace”
I met Diane a few years ago. She had been taken advantage of in a business deal by a man who claimed to be a Christian. Because of her painful experience she was stuck in neutral. She was so gunshy she couldn’t move on. Every time she tried to step forward, she’d get in her own way. She’d overthink the scanario and talk herself out of making progress even when it was in her best interest… She allowed herself to continue to play the victim.
Sometimes we keep reliving the past. We focus on all the junk. Think about all the mistakes you have made in your life. Think long and hard about each and every one of them. Now pause and forget them all! Today is a brand new day, a clean slate…
Whether you were burned by the past, are broken and bruised inside, wounded, burdened, imprisoned, ashamed: Lay it all down at the foot of the cross. He is calling for you. He wants you to make progress!
You may feel helpless in your marriage, or going through financial struggles, or deep down depressed, it may feel like the sun will never shine again. Don’t be discouraged, don’t lose hope! There are brighter days ahead… And just think: it can’t rain every day…becuase we serve a God of love, mercy, and don’t forget grace!
