But true contentment lies in knowing that I could stay up all night reading trashy novels and eating fast food and my Father would not love me less. It lies in knowing that had I cleaned out my car, gone running as planned, and skipped that brownie, He would not love me more. I'm feeling good about a productive day, but it doesn't change my need for His grace.
"In repentance and rest is your salvation,
in quietness and trust is your strength."
- Isaiah 30:15
