It’s funny what a little time with some high schoolers will do for your perspective. They helped me remember something from camp this summer that’s done wonders for this situation.
Sunsets are a beautiful amazing thing. B/c I’m a huge Passion dork and Louie’s gotten into astrology and nature over the past few years I’ve begun noticing God the same way. Interestingly enough my drummer/best friend and I had a similar conversation. He finds God most amazing and revealed through the marvels of nature as well.
Back to sunsets, they are a beautiful captivating thing! If you’ve ever been out in the country camping or what not though without city lights and street lamps, etc. you’ll remember how quickly darkness comes. One moment you’re marveling at the purple and pink and blue hues of the sky and the next: darkness.
What an incredible illustration of sin. Sinning sometimes is so wonderful 🙂 At first at least. It almost always looks incredible. “She” looked amazing. “It” coming out of your mouth felt exhilarating saying aloud. “That” really didn’t belong to someone in the first place. Then the very thing that seemed like your freedom or what was owed you or your choice or just simply a self indulgence now has left you with guilt or regret. The excitement now replaced with a brick in your gut.
Thank you God for forgiveness.
Oh, I can’t comprehend
I can’t take it all in
Such perfect love come
For the broken and beat
For the wounded and weak
Oh, come fall at His feet
He’s the remedy
You are the one who has saved us
You are the one who forgave us
