2 Corinthians 3:2 NLT
“God rescued us from dead-end alleys and dark dungeons. He’s set us up in the kingdom of the Son he loves so much, the Son who got us out of the pit we were in, got rid of the sins we were doomed to keep repeating.”
Colossians 1:13-14 MSG
I was at TJ Maxx today and heard a loud crash and something shattering. Being nosy, I walked towards the sound and saw some people whispering and looking back to the end of the next aisle. When I walked down that aisle, I saw that an older lady had hit a shelf and many things had fallen to the ground and broken. She was kneeling on the floor embarrassed, frantically trying to clean up. I felt so bad for her. Every one was just standing there staring at her. So I went and knelt beside her and told her not to worry and started helping her pick up the broken pieces. After about a minute, the store manager came and knelt beside us and said, “Leave it, we will clean this up.” The lady, totally embarrassed said, “I need to pay for all this.” The manager smiled, helped her to her feet and said, “No ma’am, we have insurance for this, you do not have to pay anything!” If you have read this far, give me another minute.
Wherever you are, close your eyes, and imagine God doing the same for you! Imagine the broken pieces of your mistakes or the pieces of your broken heart from all the blows life has thrown at you all over the floor and you’re there trying to collect all of the pieces and fix them yourself. Now imagine God comes and kneels right down beside you, smiles and says to you, “Leave it all there, I will clean this up for you.”
He loves you that much and wants to put all of those pieces back together if you will let Him! With Him we have this insurance and it’s called GRACE! It’s free! All you have to do is ask Him to forgive you, help you, and to heal you. He’s faithful, I promise! ❤️
I hope you share this as I did. Someone somewhere needs to hear it.
My niece just put on Facebook that she was cooking dinner when she felt a gush of cold air coming from the living room. The front door was standing open and her special needs child was outside by the car ready to go for a ride. This was the first time this had ever happen. My niece was terrified, and when she saw her child she was so thankful and praised God for keeping her safe.
When we are completely in tune with God, we know when he is speaking to us. God can send a message, through a gush of cold air, to get our attention. Then we can respond immediately, the way Crystal did. God sends us messages, don’t ignore them. It may be a life or death situation.
“O give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; For His compassion and lovingkindness endure forever!”
