An Overwhelming Force
Updated: Mar 30, 2022
He becomes so real, almost as if you could touch Him, there is so much evidence to His power. I cannot number the amount of times that I have seen the failure of human determination. One of the most revealing things that I have seen in the centers of Rehabilitation is the nature of man. Each and every one of us has the tendency toward sin.
There is a very famous saying that goes something like this: Sin will take you farther than you ever wanted to go, keep you longer than you ever intended to stay, and cost you more than you ever wanted to pay. These places, dark, and full of sickness are flooded with people who have experienced this to the greatest extent. It does not stop there though. If they can cling to the God who loves them dearly, the God who would climb up any mountain, and tear down any lie, they will and do experience the life that only comes from Him. They will experience the grace that is so overwhelming and overpowering. I for one am so overjoyed that God has given me the chance to see the lives of people so lost come to know the overpowering love of Christ. Their stories bring me to tears even in this moment. Oh how I long to see more come to know this dear love of the Father for them. I have been listening to this song constantly and it doesn’t matter how many times I listen to it, when I think of the lives of so many of these people that I see, it brings me to tears. It’s called Reckless Love. It speaks of a Father who would do anything just to help one recognize the reckless love that He has for them. It doesn’t matter what He has to do, He will do anything to reach them. This is God’s love and if you don’t believe it yet, read in the Bible what His love looks like in action.
