Today is the first day of the rest of her life, again. Like Jesus with all her sin they take on the weight of a lifetime of bad financial decisions. Because the Gospel carries to every part of our lives. Even our wallets and credit cards, and all-hours calls from debt collectors. And God is reminding her of this again. That these two and He, they love her more than she'll ever know.
That grace is not something to be earned or to arrive at. Grace is flowing like some wild honey from the heart of God through His people. It is like daily bread. A clean slate every morning. A new life where debt collectors and shame don't call. Where you can begin again each day. Because once again your slate is wiped clean.
On Fridays I write to discover my voice, process the week, and find out what I really believe. I join with a community of writers that encourage each other. You can join us here.
