Happy 23rd birthday, Melissa! You will never know just how much I love you and what a great blessing you are to me. I am so very thankful that God chose me to be your mother. From a sweet little baby with lots of colic, to a beautiful young woman seeking after God's heart. I pray you continue to find favor in the Lord. And that as you seek Him, you will find Him and as you find Him, you will love Him more. I love you - Mama
"OUR SIN IS GREAT - GOD'S GRACE IS GREATER"
As I read these words in my devotion today, it really caused me to stop and ponder these words and think about it.
Sin entered our world through one wrong choice to follow man's path instead of God's path. Sin entered and has had a death grip on us ever since.
Without God's intervention we would be without Hope. We would be bound for an eternity in hell. Lost and never found.
But through the cross, Jesus overpowered and conquered sin and thus conquered death through His resurrection. Because of Jesus we have hope and we have life. Our sins have been covered by the precious blood of our Lord and Savior.
"Where sin abounded, grace abounded much more." Romans 5:20
Lord, help me to live in more appreciation and thankfulness for what you did on the cross of Calvary for us all. As I seek you more, help me to follow your path and not my own. Help me to flee from the temptation of sin and focus on the restoring power of God's grace.
