“The overarching theme of Romans is the righteousness that comes from God; the glorious truth that God justifies guilty, condemned sinners by grace alone through faith in Christ alone,” John MacArthur.
I heard the Lord speak tenderly to my spirit, “You are not what you do; you are who I created you to be.”
In this relentless invitation, I find wholeness.
In this constant awareness of God’s grace, I find peace.

For decades, I sought and strove to find the acceptance I longed for. Always doing, always trying, and always failing—which made me try harder until I came to the end of myself. But it was in this place that I encountered the depths of God’s love and
found the rest I longed for.
