When attempts to hide self and preserve position finally give way to the weightier thing called conviction, remarkable things happen.
Exposure of one’s darkest realities,
Acknowledgement of one’s deepest depravities,
Confession of one’s darkest sins,
Admittance of one’s human frailties,
Does not remove one from entering into God’s grace, but rather, ushers him into it.
Until pride is laid down and fear of man is relinquished …
There is no freedom into this marvelous thing called grace.
Relieve thyself, at once, of all darkness and step confidently into the transformative power of Christ’s light.
A new day emerges for the contrite;
A Doorway of Hope ...
In purest light.
"How frequently, in the course of our lives, the evil, which in itself we seek most to shun, and which, when we are fallen into, is the most dreadful to us, is oftentimes the very means or door of our deliverance, by which alone we can be raised again from the affliction we are fallen into."
-Daniel Defoe
“Therefore, behold, I will allure her, and bring her into the wilderness, and speak tenderly to her. And there I will give her, her vineyards, and make the Valley of Achor (trouble) a door of hope. And there shall she answer as in the days of her youth, as at the time when she came out of the land of Egypt.”
Hosea 2:14-15
