Inspiration from Richard Paul Evans…

I’m on his mailing list. This one arrived last Monday.

I don’t doubt his experience. It made me realize that God loves my abusers, which in no ways means He excuses their behavior.

What is more important was Richard’s own observation: If God could love such as these why would I think His love is any less for me?

Choosing to follow God isn’t about avoiding punishment. It’s about being open to all the blessings He wants to give me and only an open heart is able to receive. Things like peace of mind, inspiration, courage… consistency…
