You will shine among [a warped and crooked generation] like stars in the sky as you hold firmly to the word of life. - Philippians 2:15-16 (NIV)
My church has offered our members a course that encourages us and equips us to share our faith with our friends and neighbors. I usually avoid situations where I need to voice my faith to others, so this is quite a challenge for me. As I was considering the course...
"This is absolutely lovely! How I wish I had been exposed or otherwise taught this beautiful lesson exactly as it is written here when I was a child. Going on 60 years old now, I am just coming to believe the words contained in this piece. As I look back on my life now, I suspect that my feelings of unworthiness of God’s love began at a very young age. Not explicitly, by which I mean to say that I was never told that I was not worthy of God’s love and mercy, but rather implicitly, through my experiences with simple human error and a constant focus on perfection and pleasing others. I cannot express to you how beautiful this piece is to me; I can only tell you that it touches me very deeply. Thank you!" Read more about Pockets.
