SURPRISED TO BE LOVED By Jessy “But me he caught—reac From: Justin Thomas Gregory 28 Feb 2008 (12:00)

“But me he caught—reached all the way from sky to sea; he pulled me out of that ocean of hate, that enemy chaos, the void in which I was drowning. They hit me when I was down, but God stuck by me. He stood me up on a wide-open field; I stood there saved—surprised to be loved!” Psalms 18:16-18 (MSG)

Have you ever been surprised to be loved? Maybe you’ve been surprised that a friend still wants to talk to you after you spread a bad rumor about them, or that your pet still likes you after you had ignored it for a while, or amazed at your parents’ love after you just totally disobeyed them.

Or maybe people let you go. Maybe those around you didn’t give you a second chance. If that’s the case, maybe you’re having thoughts that no one could possibly give you a second chance. The truth is…you don’t deserve one. No one does!

Think about this: every time we sin, we turn away from God and reject Him and all He has to offer. We go against everything He is for and end up hurting ourselves even more. But get this: after all that, God still helps us get out of the mess we made for ourselves. He is there for us the whole time! He sees everything we do and still loves us. How amazing is that? Not only should we be surprised to be loved by Him, but thankful for every chance He gives us. Take time to thank Him today for all He’s done in your life.
