I am forgiven…I have been given another chance; there’s no condemnation, your grace is sufficient to cover my past..”
I have been spending a lot of time lately on the topic of forgiveness. How do we forgive? Especially when its someone who has hurt us, repeatedly? How do you accept love when you do not know true love? How can you elieve in the power of redemption and grace and mercy when it is something never before experienced?
There are many amazing stories within the Bible that speak to this. None better than the story of Gomer and Hosea. If you do not know this one; do read it. And while you are at it consider,also reading Love in a Broken Vessel.
Mesu Andrews is an amazing author. I just stumbled across her writing recently myself and I am amazed at the detail and accuracy of her stories. She brings Biblical acounts to life; she gives life to these stories in a wonderful way – A way that truly makes you feel His love for each one of His children.
Such a shadow of how we so often run from Him – He loves us no matterho broken we are. No matter the scars and rebellin we show. He is always there for HIs children; waiting fathfully. S is the story of Gomer and Hosea. And your heart jus breaks for them both as you read – It was bittersweet when this tale ended.
It is the story of His love. It is the story of our journey with Him. We are loved and we are redeemed when we come to Him. Never shall we be forsaken, or left if we seek His truth ad HIs path. How I ove this tale. Such detail and accurary; such a heartfelt tale.
If you do not know the story, go firsts to your Bible; then read Love in a Broken Vessel. It’s not a light read but one that is worthy of your time. Delve into the story; peraos you will find a bit of yourself within as well. I know I certainly did.
