“If you wish to strengthen your confidence in God still more,
often recall the loving way in which He has acted toward you,
and how mercifully He has tried to bring you out of your sinful life,
to break your attachment to the things of earth and draw you to His love.”
St. Alphonsus Liguori
(gull / Rosemary Beeach, FL / Julie Cook)
“God will forgive you if you ask him to.
Though your sins be numerous as the grains of sand on the shore,
God’s merciful forgiveness is far greater than your sins.
Do not be afraid. Trust in his love.
Repent of your sins without delay and return to the house of the Father.
He is waiting for you.”
Patrick Madrid, p.15
An Excerpt From
A Year with the Bible
Your title got me thinking of a post – my off beat kind, mixing the quote with what Jessica Rabbit said in the movie, “I’m not a bad girl, I was just drawn that way.” We are drawn (a different meaning) toward the allure of evil or we are drawn to God. Hmmm. This could work…
Most happy to offer a direction ☺️
