Just some flaws….

I love to watch how God is taking root in my the hearts of my nieces and nephews. I see it differently in each of them and it is less in what they know or commit to memory and more in how they make their decisions and what shapes their character.

Tonight my creative and fun-loving niece Olivia Grace posted this and I wondered where she had picked it up. I found out it is an original piece. I marvel at the balance she has in her recognition of her sin (her depravity) and the confidence she has in beauty of God’s grace. I believe that this balance of depravity and dignity allows her to live in a very free-spirited fashion! I love you so much Olivia Grace….

With her permission I share this with you tonight. I invite you to consider the list of your flaws and ask you to consider making a list and then marvel at the freedom you have to write the same words over top if you have entrusted your heart and life to Jesus…
