I was drowning in the sea of my own mess and God loved me so much that He rescued me. He pursued me even when I ran away and was too stubborn to come back to Him. I was blind and He opened my eyes to the liberating truth. He set me free from every bondage, and His abounding grace and perfect love have transformed me forever. He has given me a new hope for the future, and I trust Him with all my heart. My desire is to know and serve Him and to pursue righteousness. I owe my life to the One who demonstrated His compassion at the cross and His power in the resurrection. His approval is all I need for everlasting joy, and I am no longer defined by my past mistakes. I hope my blog encourages you to pursue Christ because He loves you so much that He died for you. :)
"This is not about what you've done, but what's been done for you. This is not about where you've been, but where your brokenness leads you to. This is not about what you feel, but what He felt to forgive you and make you loved. You are more than the sum of your past mistakes. You are more than the problems you create. You've been remade."
"God looked at me and said, "Stop fighting a fight that's already been won." Now I've got a new name, a new life, I'm not the same, and a hope that will carry me home."
"It’s crazy, if you think about it. The God of the universe-Creator of nitrogen and pine needles, galaxies and E minor-loves us with a radical, unconditional, self-sacrificing love."
Jesus didn’t come only to cleanse us from all sin, He also came to help us understand why God loves us.
There are days when you dont feel like praying. When your soul feels dark and your heart feels down. Those are the days when you need to pray. Those are the days when you need it most. And if you find the strength to bow before your Lord in those days, you have defeated a big part of your nafs and taken a huge step towards your Lord. So pray no matter what. Lead your heart to prayer and one day your heart will lead you to prayer.
