"If the Spirit of God detects anything in you that is wrong, He does not ask you to put it right; He asks you to accept the light, and He will put it right."
I found this quote online...don't know who said it...but they are smart. i think a lot of times, we get so consumed in how to make something right, or whatever, that we forget that all we have to do is to ask God to forgive us. I'm not saying we do not have to be truly sorry for our sins. I often am overwhelmed by the little stuff and by what i will have to act like or who i will have to be to earn God's trust again. I've messed up so much, constantly, that i feel so guilty about his grace. Am i the only one who is like this?? God doesn't ask us to fix it ourselves and then he might forgive us...he already forgives us with no strings attached. He is amazing...i'm so thankful that i he takes me back all the time!
i found another really fantastic quote...what do u think about this one??
"Some want to live within the sound of church or chapel bell; I want to run a rescue shop within a yard of hell."
