I just got back a few days ago from my family vacation to Topsail, NC. The ocean was beautiful and we did not see any sharks, thank goodness! But, there was a shark bite a couple blocks down from us, which really scared me. One thing about me is that I absolutely love the ocean, yet I am so afraid of sharks. Makes perfect sense.
I have not written anything in a while besides my own journaling (and trust me, it isn’t fun to read) and I can definitely tell, because writing is such a stress reliever for me. For me, I become more at peace the more I write..even if it is just some simple thoughts. Some of those simple thoughts came my way through these few words that have been on my heart.
Facebook has been a scary place for me over the past week. I’ve seen words of love but I have also seen way too many words of hate. This quote is so important to me because we are all sinners in need of God’s grace… But no deep dark pit of sin is so deep that God’s love cannot overcome. His love is deeper than our sin. How incredible is that? In my own life, I have really struggled with inadequacy. I thought that I was not good enough, so I had no clue why God was asking me to do all of these uncomfortable things. There have been many pits deeper than inadequacy, but there is always this sense of relief knowing that God’s love is so much more vast than my issues.
I don’t know what your journey is like and what you have struggled with, but know that there is always freedom. There is always grace. There is always forgiveness. And there is always love.
As you reach your weekend and come in contact with so many people at 4th of July festivities, remember that each person is fighting a battle, we are all sinners. Give grace and love people! “There is no pit so deep that God’s love is not deeper still.”
