Encouraging Thought

wpid-2014-08-19-19.15.59.jpg.jpeg

While I was healing from my divorce and the abandonment of my first wife, I ran across the ministry of Brennan Manning in his writings. He was a man who struggled with the demons of alcoholism. And Manning was also an amazing man of God who preached a powerful word about grace. When I felt I had come up short and no one would want me, Manning’s message of good news and grace was a balm to my soul.

His life message is encapsulated in this:

God loves you as you are, not as you should be.”

All Is Grace, 107, emphasis added

Let that sink into your soul when you are feeling like a failure or feeling rejected and worthless.

Jesus said it this way:

“All those the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away.”

-John 6:37, NIV
