The Daily Breath of God
Wednesday, January 25 2012
If you, O LORD, kept a record of sins, O LORD, who could stand? But with you there is forgiveness. Psalm 130:3,4Sometimes along the journey through our life events take place that affect us in ways that overwhelm our emotions in all the wrong ways. They can be things we have done to others, things others have done to us, or just great disappointments in relationships we thought would be outstanding. In this place, for some reason we seem to have a difficult time with forgiving well. It is actually in this place that grace takes its stand. Grace in and through Jesus the Christ removes the heaviness from our broken relationships by giving to us the love of God without any condemnation to us or about us. In this place there is a freedom that refreshes our emotions, our thinking and our attitude. On this new day may you enjoy this freedom of forgiveness that is yours through the grace found in Christ. May all who come in contact with you feel and sense the freedom to stand and know your joy of them. God fully intended that his grace would overwhelm you in all the right ways and joy, kindness, hope and encouragement would become who you are.
