It is hard to believe that this moment relived in Ch. 16 was over 11 years ago. Looking back I am able to see how God made all things new in my life. Despite my sin. Regardless of my mistakes, He kept at me with an intense merciful love and acceptance that I couldn’t help but be reshaped closer to the image He’d always created me to be.
I am not privy to His love and his miraculous transformations. He desires and patiently waits for each one of us to let go of the shame, pride, control, or whichever lie that keeps you from accepting His merciful love and desire to make you new.
The greatest amount of control I’ve ever felt in my life is when I gave up the ‘control’ to God.
