I love the simplicity of the gospel. A perfect and Holy God, gives His perfect love as a gift to an imperfect, un-deserving sinner like me. And then for all my days having the joy and privilege of knowing Him, loving Him, worshiping Him.
I have complicated so many things in my life, but I love how God with His word and His Spirit, makes HUGE things, great truths, even hidden mysteries He brings them to life. I just need to surrender my well thought-out sophistications, and simply take what has already been paid for, with a simple child-like faith in Him.
I know that life can be merciless, imperfect and blurred with many disappointments. It takes very little effort to be skeptical, critical and guarded, and so often left unchecked, I default into a position with God as well, not trusting Him, or wanting to add to what He has already paid in full. This week, I am trusting God for a simple child-like faith in everyday life. To trust in the author and perfect or of my faith. Delighting in and beholding Him, His perfect love and His perfect ways and being content to receive from His hand.
