Our struggles and imperfections are turned to blessings in the light of Unconditional Love.

Mark 4:22

“For there is nothing hidden except to be made visible; nothing is secret except to come to light.”

Jesus had just made the point that a lamp should not be hidden but placed on a lampstand when he made the statement above.

When we hide things about ourselves that we don’t want others to know, when we try to keep things secret, they are not hidden from God.

It is usually the things that we want to keep hidden, the things that we think people would be appalled at if they knew about them, that end up being the keys to our transformation.

Let the light shine on the things in the shadows.

God is not going to punish us…but love us.

God wants to use those very things that we are ashamed of to transform us!

God loves us unconditionally.

When we experience the light of this love in our struggles and imperfections…we open the possibility of change.

We experience grace!

It is only then that we can bring that same unconditional love and mercy to others.
