Jude 1:13

13 They are wild waves of the sea, foaming up their shame; wandering stars, for whom blackest darkness has been reserved forever.

Jude is one chapter long, a letter written as a warning to all believers.  The verse above is in reference to those who did not believe and who would cause believers to stray from their faith by their ways.

Recent events in my life, however, have shown me that in reality we all are those wild waves of the sea.  Those wandering stars in the blackest darkness.

Our free will gives us the choice to do as we please.
The grace that was given to us with the sacrifice of the Lamb, is all that keeps us from staying in that darkness.

We cling to His light, sometimes faltering, sometimes falling, but always with the grace to come back into the light and seek forgiveness.

I'm so grateful for forgiveness.

  1. If only more people could learn to forgive themselves. They go through life suffering guilt over things in their past that they probably had no control over. Mother guilt comes to mind here. So many blogs I read have the women agonising, "if only", but at the time of the event/happening you don't know any other option and don't know what is coming in the future, so the "if onlys" from now, are useless. Forgive yourself for the mistakes you made and be the best mum you can be now. Just like you were then. If I say this to them, I hear, "but...I should have..."and they go on suffering needlessly.
