plentiful redemption

This past week has been a hard one to say the least. On both personal and professional fronts, I've seen hearts go through the wringer. After celebrating a huge milestone in our family, we got hit hard. Then I watched as friends have also been through the fire in the past few days. I have witnessed and gone through tremendous brokenness, loss, and pain.  

Yeah, it's been a really rough week.

And then yesterday I was reminded of this powerful truth when a friend posted this to her Instagram feed. (Jami Nato is amazeballs - to use one of her words - you need to check out her blog).


So I sat, scrolling through my Instagram feed, and wept.  It was a perfect reminder.

Yes, my hope is in the Lord.

With him there is a steadfast love that is unchanging and everlasting.

And because of Him, with Him, there is plentiful redemption.


I got stuck on the word plentiful. Admittedly, I often think of Jesus' grace as "just enough." He gives me just enough to make it, just enough to endure, just enough to hope.

But the Psalms describes the Lord's redemption as plentiful.

More than enough.

Abundant.


His redemption is plentiful for the circumstances of this past week. I can rest in his steadfast love. And because of these truths in the midst of all this brokenness, I will hope in Him.

Amen.  Let it be, Lord.
