Today I went to a baby shower. It was for my friend Beth, and she writes here.
A wonderful lady named Esther gave a devotional for Beth, and it was great. But one thing she said really stuck out to me.
Esther was telling Beth not to be afraid of making mistakes - we all make mistakes. Then she said "God will still be God after your son is born. He has and always will redeem the things that we mess up."
God is in the business of redeeming the things that I mess up. And I mess up a lot. But not too much for God to handle.
How can I be in my 30's, and have this hit me like a hammer between the eyes? I mean, I GREW UP hearing this, and I made it through 30 hours of Bible and Theology in college. I KNOW this.
But I guess it goes to show that to know something with your brain, and to know something with your heart are totally different things.
Thank you Esther, for speaking to right where I needed to hear it, and for ministering to me even though I was just a guest at this shindig.
Redeemed. God has and will redeem the things we mess up. What a comforting thought.
