Grace will set you Free

Church wrecked me Sunday.

Like ugly crying, sniffling and snotting all over the place, mascara all down my face. I’m now considering fake eyelashes because then I wouldn’t have to worry about raccoon tracks going down my face every single church service.

This Sunday’s sermon: grief and regret.

It’s something I’ve battled every single day since November 13th. The sermon was written for me – no doubt. The grief is real, and the regrets – the regrets continuously haunt me and taunt me. The last few months I’ve stepped inside of a self-made prison – one that I won’t let myself out of.

The question Pastor Trey left us with was this: Will those mistakes continue to hold you down, or will they bring you to a place that you can finally be free?

I want to be free. God wants me to be free. God wants you to be free. He doesn’t want us bound up by self-made shackles. God has the key, and that key is His grace.

Regrets are real. But God’s grace is bigger than any self-made shackles we’ve locked ourselves into.

“The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” Psalm 34:18
