He will take you by surprise,
and you won’t notice the first steps
that turn to falling.
When you make room for him,
be careful what you throw away.
When he stomps around your heart
like he owns the place,
remember who was there first.
And do not lose yourself.
Two people denied Jesus the night before His death: Judas & Peter. Both wept for their mistake.
What was the difference between the two?
Judas turned away from God & judged himself. Peter repented, went back to God, & let Him forgive & restore him.
Never underestimate the power of Jesus to forgive & restore.
God never changes his mind about the people he calls. He never decides to take back the blessings he has given them.
— Romans 11:29
Amen. I needed this.
Never let your mistakes turn you away from God.
Find the things that matter, and hold on to them, and fight for them, and refuse to let them go.
