It's becoming more and more apparent that God's will is truly spectacular. In between the doubts and fears you'd think I was a lost hope, but that's not what God sees. God sees that which He predetermined.
"Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified." (Romans 8:30)
Amazing grace, love, and redemption. It is not our mistakes that define us, but our Savior Jesus. God's grace saved us, His perfect love embraces us, and the redemption of the Cross is our hope for all eternity.
It is nothing we could've done for our own selves. This is made crystal clear in the Bible: it is by grace we have been saved. Alone we are helpless and prone to destructive and sinful tendencies, but when we accept our adoption into Christ everything changes.
We have been adopted into royalty and cleansed by the blood of the Perfect Lamb of God. In Him we find acceptance, for Christ died for all - He came to save the sinners.
Family is where you're safe, and truly, truly there is no safer place than in the arms of Christ our Lord. He protects, guides, and fights for us. We are fully His.
His mercy flows abundantly, His goodness never ends, and His wondrous works are all around us. We are His masterpieces, and our life stories testify to that as well. He purposes us for the good of His Kingdom. When great things happen, it's for His glory and honour.
Savior Jesus, we place in Your hands our all. Though we are weak and very small, we trust in You that we won't fall. Savior Jesus, to You we'll call.
"This was the Lord ’s doing; It is marvelous in our eyes. This is the day the Lord has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it." (Psalms 118:23-24)
This, this joy, this wonder, this is the Lord's doing. This is how our hearts sing songs of thanks. We just give our thanks and rejoice. Trust, watch Him work in your life, and joyfully thank Him. Our God is good!
