With this shoot bang start to Lent, I declare the
So today, I am reminding myself that God is abundant. Abundant enough to give us His son. Abundant enough to love us when we loved Him. Abundant enough to love us when we hated Him. Abundant enough to keep forgiving us no matter what. Abundant enough to grace us with blessings through all of it. Abundant enough to be enough. Just enough. More than enough. Enough to flow over. Overflowing abundance.
And the grace of our Lord overflowed for me with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus. The saying is sure and worthy of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners - of whom I am the foremost. But for that very reason I received mercy, so that in me, as the foremost,Jesus Christ might display the utmost patience, making me an example to those who would come to beleive in him for eternal life. To the King of the ages, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.
I Timothy 1:14-17
