Recently I saw a quote on Pinterest that said, “I don’t need someone who sees the good in me, I need someone who sees the bad and still wants me.” Thankfully, there is such a One! God knows us inside and out. He sees the bad and still wants us. He remembers that we are “but dust” and “doesn’t treat us as our sins deserve” or “repay us according to our offenses”. (Psalms 103:10 & 14) He is patient, longsuffering, and loves us with a perfect love that can only come from Him.
See wise words below from Tim Keller and remember, God will never leave you or forsake you. “He who began a good work in you WILL carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” (Phil. 1:6)
“The gospel is this: we are more sinful and flawed in ourselves than we ever dared believe, yet at the very same time we are more loved and accepted in Jesus Christ than we ever dared hope.”
– Timothy Keller
