The world says, “Clean up your mess” and suffocates us into conformity. Jesus stepped into our mess and gave us breath called grace.
Everyone else is saying, “Catch up” and “Get over it” and “Not enough.“ God says, “I have loved you with an everlasting love,” “I am close to the brokenhearted” and “Do not be afraid, for I am with you.”
You will squeeze from people what only God can freely offer. You will please people up to a point: but only God is truly pleasable.
Everyone is desperately racing to be accepted by incremental measurements: but at the cross, we are equally zero, and at the cross we are equally welcome.
When everyone else abandons you in your weakest vulnerability – God does not leave. He cannot. He is the endless constancy. He is unconditional. He is the one we’ve all been looking for.
