Surprised to Be Loved | Sunday Respite | 40 Gifts of Lent
But me he caught—reached all the way
from sky to sea; he pulled me out
Of that ocean of hate, that enemy chaos,
the void in which I was drowning.
They hit me when I was down,
but God stuck by me.
He stood me up on a wide-open field;
I stood there saved—surprised to be loved!
Psalm 18:16 – 19 (The Message)

LOVE the photos. One reminds me of England…that wonderful yellow. Thank you.
Thank you, Joanne. The yellow in the photo are corn marigolds, a weed that takes over the corn field. While it is annoying for the farmers, it adds a splash of brightness to an otherwise dull plot of land. Thanks for visiting here! Donna
I’m so thankful He caught me. 🙂
He caught us…and will never let go.
