“So thank God for his marvelous love, for his miracle mercy to the children he loves.” Psalm 107:8,15,21,31 The Message
Room for God’s daily generous grace …?
It really is a gift .. a generous gift. It is for those who “wander” in the desert .. worn out .. weary .. anxious .. and desperate. It is for those with “heavy hearts” who have turned away and live locked up loves. It is for those who suffered .. who have lost sight of living and daily punish themselves for unforgiven pasts and buried toxic secrets. It is for those who launch upon dreams and wind up in storms and whose lives are spinning while standing still. Good news .. The One who washes over you with never-ending .. never-leaving .. and never-giving up grace has walked in deserts .. borne a heavy heart for sufferers and the sin-ravaged .. touched the untouchable .. restored sanity .. restored families .. and restored lost and lonely lives trapped in the past or paralyzed by the future. His name is Jesus and misfits .. the misplaced .. and the missing find a home in His grace and healing in His truth. It only takes a moment …
“We’re the Messiah’s misfits.” 1 Corinthians 4:10 The Message
