    That Post About Sin

    (Photo Credit) Let’s talk about sin. I know, it’s uncomfortable. Why don’t I just write about God’s love or amazing grace? Well, I do love writing about all that, but it’s kind of hard to get a grip on how unfathomable God’s love is for us until we realize how much we really don’t deserve it.  That last sentence hurts, but we have to remember that Jesus didn’t die for perfect people. He died for murderers, liars, gluttons, adulterers, and selfish people. He died for you and me.

    New Sometimes I fear The pain that will rise When the past comes hurdling back All to my surprise. When all of the things I know Are all of the things He died For me to let go. All of us are stained And all of us are broken. But we are a new creation Those are the words that God has spoken. So through all of the world’s lies And behind every tear I know in my soul that He can hear. Like a bunch of children Who have made themselves a mess God has forgiven and cleaned us up His love is all the best.   ~Emily S. <3 Fearfullywonderfullyme.wordpress.com
