“If His grace is an ocean we’re all sinking” (How He Loves, Crowder)
“You nailed my debt to that old rugged cross, an empty slate, at the empty grave” (Homecoming, Bethel)
“Be my peace when I’m surrounded
For my fears will never scare
You Shatter the shame that I’ve been bound in
From insecure to brand new” (No Other
Love, Red Rocks Worship)
We often can’t grasp how much patience God has with us. He never says, “this is the last time I’ll put you back together.”
He is always there waiting with open arms. Having someone in our corner that will never leave us is the best comfort we could ask for. People fail us, and we have unrealistic expectations that cause us to get mad or lose trust in others and sometimes God. But He hears our cries, He waits to put us back together, He’s the father waiting for your return home meeting you halfway.
Reminding ourselves of how much we are loved is so important in our relationship with Christ because that’s what it is, a relationship, between 2 people who have fallen in love. One so much He gave His life for you. To know his love and know his peace allows us to love people the way He loves. It allows us to move through the troubles of life with certainty that we will get through it.
Proverbs 3:5-6 & 8
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths… It will be healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bones.”
I found these verses as I was praying over a friend for healing and that they would know God’s peace and love, and I pray this same thing for you.
