surrendering to the horrible belief that God loves us anyway.

“…what’s most amazing to me,” the pastor said… “is that Jesus comes to people like us. Cowards, liars – even mother mockers! And entrusts us with the kingdom of God, with carrying the message of peace. We get that peace too, when we surrender to the horrible belief that God loves us anyway.” (Anne Lamott in her novel Blue Shoe)

    and how humbling is this fact, that God trusts us…little people on earth to share and live out his Gospel of love and grace! and at the end of the day (quite literally!) its an amazing belief to surrender to, no matter how stubborn we want to be, no matter what we do or say, there’s no running away from the fact that God loves us!! 🙂

    thanks for sharing this quote!
