>Yeah she's a bit dirty. Silly girl has a thing for laying in the worst places.<

  God delights in broken things because it is only when we have nothing left that we can realize the absolute need for Him.

  I'm not talking about a broken heart after a failed relationship. No. I'm talking about realizing that you. are. nothing. (That sounds harsh but please keep reading.) Your goals are insignificant. Your life without Him is useless, and the sin you live in is separating you from God. You trying to do good things on your own, is reeking in His nostrils. (Isaiah 64:6) And He would be completely just in sending you to hell. (all of us)
  But He doesn't want that! (2 Peter 3:9) So He gives you time. What will you do with that time? Go on living the same as you always did, or realize that He wants you. Do you see that? He wants YOU! An all-powerful, all-knowing God wants you! Not just part, not mostly, but all of you!
  So now you can see some of His holiness, His power, His might. Then you take a look at yourself: the pride, the deceit, the wickedness, how could He want you?
  {Psalm 51:17}
"The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit and a contrite heart, O God thou wilt not despise."
God desires a brokenness for sin. That's what He wants from you. Broken, humble, repentant, and then He'll add one- Forgiven!



  1. Such a great post and so true!!! The truth will always sound harsh but my, if we really *look* at it, God is so loving to take us sinners into His arms!

    1. Thanks for the encouragement! Yes God is SO loving!

  2. You are so right! We ARE nothing. We Have nothing. God is a great God of mercy. We are Poor sinners.
    It takes a lot for us to tell ourselves that, especiallly in this world now.

    1. If only we could ALWAYS remember that He is the one who deserves all the praise and glory. So often I like to give myself credit when really I am only what I am because He allowed me to.
      Have a blessed day!

  3. What a wonderful post! Especially love the last paragraph. :)
