Thankful Thursday/ Feb. 11
"Look at this woman kneeling here. When I entered your home, you didn't offer me water to wash the dust from my feet, but she has washed them with her tears and wiped them with her hair. You didn't greet me with a kiss, but from the time I first came in, she has not stopped kissing my feet. You neglected the courtesy of olive oil to anoint my head, but she has anointed my feet with rare perfume. I tell you, her sins—and they are many—have been forgiven, so she has shown me much love." (Luke 7:44-47, NLT)
Today I am so very thankful for God's forgiveness..... The above woman referenced in this scripture is me ladies. I have done things in my past that I struggled to BELIEVE that a "perfect and holy God" could ever forgive.
So thankful that I can TRUST CHRIST at his word and know beyond a shadow of a doubt that "it is finished"... My sin is cast as far as the East is from the West.....What peace............what assurance......
Brings to mind the ole hymm Blessed assurance.................
Thanking my precious Savior this day for choosing me - long before he formed me - even knowing the sin I would choose and yet still loving me inspite of it all!
