{love note}

August 26, 2013

From time to time
life gets the better of us.
We get overwhelmed with commitments
and responsibilities.
Things get pushed and shoved into
the corner marked for later.
The dirt piles up.
And it's sloppy and messy.
Seems like it's useless,
except to remind us of our shortcomings.
But, God loves us through it all
and He can {and does} use every
situation to show us His love for us.
He is with us and will not leave us.
And when we need to be reminded,
He will scribble a love note in the dirt.

"For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will scarcely die for a righteous person- though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die- but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:6-8

"But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ- by grace you have been saved-" Ephesians 2:4-5
