Grace Upon Grace

God looks at us through the lens of love.

Psalm 32:5

Then I declared my sin to you; my guilt I did not hide. I said, “I confess my faults to the Lord,” and you took away the guilt of my sin.

~

God is Love.

God is not an angry tyrant waiting to punish.

When I admit my wrongdoings and times I acted selfishly…as if I was the center of the universe…God forgives and extends mercy.

What else would Love do?

Turn back to your Loving Creator and allow yourself to be held. As a mother cradles a baby in her arms…this is how God wants to hold you…with no condemnation…only Love.

It’s not a matter of worthiness…but is simply a choice to open yourself to a Love that is never withheld.

God’s justice is not retributive…but restorative.

Feel the embrace of Unconditional Love…and watch your guilt and pain…

fall away.
