Hi Lesley. I’m so grateful God didn’t leave us in our mess or destroy us but instead chose a way of restoration! Thank you for this encouraging reminder that “we can hold onto hope, knowing that His love never fails, and that no matter how great the sin and the brokenness we see around us, Jesus’ power is greater.” Love and hugs to you!

I am reminded of the song, “The potter wants to put you back together again” by Tremaine Hawkins. By the first man Adam, we were broken, but thank God for Jesus, the second man who came to make us whole.

Hi Lesley,
I’m so glad that God meets us in the middle of our stories and redeems what we think is broken or lost or gone forever. Reading his words show us that he will go to great lengths to show his love for us and I’m so grateful for that abundant love!

Beautiful truth! I’m re-reading The Jesus Storybook Bible each night at bed time, and Sally Lloyd Jones describes the fall so plaintively from God’s perspective for when Adam and Eve broke His law, they broke His heart. So thankful that this was NOT the end of the story and that the narrative arc of Scripture is one of redemption and restoration!
