Grace Day

from the Lent 2016 reading plan

Jonah 2:5-7

BY She Reads Truth

Text: Jonah 2:5-7

Take time today to rest in the knowledge of God’s boundless grace and reflect on Scripture below.

The waters engulfed me up to the neck;
the watery depths overcame me;
seaweed was wrapped around my head.
I sank to the foundations of the mountains;
the earth with its prison bars closed behind me forever!
But You raised my life from the Pit, Lord my God!
As my life was fading away,
I remembered Yahweh.
My prayer came to You,
to Your holy temple.
-Jonah 2:5-7 HCSB

    No matter how deep we dig our pit, God is always on the bottom waiting to bring us back up. There’s no place His grace can’t reach. Praise God for His overflowing love for us.

    This is my need. I always feel like I’m doing something wrong when I remember that this is why God came. For the sick. For the broke. I am that

    What strikes me is how welcoming it can be to sink into these dangerous depths without even realising it and yet, but God, can rescue you and show His grace even if u welcome it. Blessed Lord. Thank u for your frequent and most timely grace.

    This verse touch my heart. I feel that at some point, all of us have been in this vulnerable state. I have and still have those days, weeks or months where I am just lost and things feel like they are piling on top of me or time is running out, but the Lord always catches me when I fall.

    Thank you, Lord for never leaving me! :)
