Foot Prints

These are a few of my thoughts after spending more than half my summer on the beach…

What is the first thing you think of when you think about the beach? There are many possible answers for this question, but few would respond to that question with the answer “the sand.” Everyday the sand is marked by thousands of foot prints. All of different shapes and sizes. Some big and some small.  When suddenly, they are washed away by a single wave. Leaving the sand absolutely clean and pure, until the next person comes along and leaves their mark. This seems so straightforward. Many people probably do not think twice about this. But how could something so simple be connected with our everyday lives?…

“Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord.” Acts 3:19

This verse explains how the foot prints in the sand connect with our everyday lives. Just as the foot prints in the sand are wiped out everyday, so are our sins. God sent his son to live the perfect life and to become the ultimate sacrifice. He did this so that we could be forgiven for our sins. If we admit our sins to the Lord, and are truly sorry for what we have done, then we will be wiped clean. That is how AWESOME our God is. No matter what we do wrong, he will always forgive and love us. It is so incredible that no matter how rough your past might be, no matter what you have done, YOU are able to START FRESH in CHRIST.
