Sometimes I find myself to be so quick to settle with my sin. I attempt to calculate all my options, to see that there’s apparently no way out and to wallow and bask in the pigsty. But God, being rich in mercy, has a radical alternative. Something I could have never imagined, yet He makes it so blatantly wonderful after what seemed like a lost darkness to the tunnel.
He has a different ending. A greater ending.
How long, O Lord? How long will I settle for my sin? Will I settle for the pigsty? Will I settle for myself?
Lord, let me trust in your steadfast love, let my heart rejoice in your salvation!
I will sing to the Lord because He has dealt bountifully with me.
