We have to realize — our mistakes aren’t that powerful. Our mistakes aren’t too big for God. He’s not up in the heavens shaking His head saying, “I never dreamed they would do that. They’ve ruined My plan.” No, God knew every mistake we would ever make. He knew every wrong turn, and He’s already prepared a new route. He already has your detour figured out.
Scripture says that God knows the end from the beginning. If you’ve made some mistakes, the good news is that He has already planned a way to get you back on track! Just come to Him with an open and humble heart. Let Him wash you clean and make you new. Your mistakes aren’t bigger than God. He loves you and has a good plan in store for you!
Ahhhh cute sleepy puppies and their little paws
My dear freshie,
He will break the misconception that He only loves us when we’re good.
His love is not conditional. He loves you. How he loves you..
Is this a woman I will respect in the decades to come? She may stumble but is she oriented rightly in her heart towards Jesus and is her life vision wrapped in His loving gaze?
Is this a man that desires to pursue the love of Jesus - experiencing it, understanding it, and expressing it? Is this a man that has integrity of heart to keep reaching for this goal even when he fails?
"The point of irresistible grace is not that we can’t resist. We can, and we do. The point is that when God chooses, he overcomes our resistance and restores a submissive spirit. He creates. He says, “Let there be light!” He heals. He leads. He restores. He comforts.
Therefore, we never boast that we have returned from backsliding. We fall on our faces before the Lord and with trembling joy thank him for his irresistible grace.”
