"Tax collectors and prostitutes are entering the Kingdom of God before you" (Matt.21:28-32)
Years ago, I wished I was one of those girls who always seemed to have their heart and eyes on God. You know, those youth group kids, or those girls who found peace in surrendering to Jesus. They were (truly) happy while I was just pretending to be or convincing myself that I was happy.
I regretted giving so much of myself to the world but felt like the leftovers of my life weren’t even suitable for God.
I was scared after my conversion to go to Jesus, to be truly loved by Him. I was scared that my ‘leftovers’ weren’t enough. I was wrong. And it’s so good to be wrong under the mercies of God.
"But if he turns from the wickedness he has committed, and does what is right and just, he shall preserve his life; since he has turned away from all the sins that he has committed, he shall surely live, he shall not die" (Ezekiel 18: 25-28).
Remember your mercies, O Lord (Psalm 25).”
