Carolina Wren

Let not the greatness of your transgressions appall you; let not the deep needs of your soul discourage you; let not the turpitude of your guilt dismay you; let not the intensity of your grief overwhelm you.

You deal with a God whose love is infinite and can infinitely more than reach the farthest extent of your need.

Come with your great and your minor sins; come with your deep and your shallow needs;

come to His infinite ocean of love,

in which the elephant may swim and the lamb may wade.


– Octavius Winslow, 1808-1878

  1. His redeeming love for us is so amazing when we see His holiness and how undeserving we are. Studying Hosea and God’s unfailing love right now. What a blessing!

    1. So wonderful to hear from you Beth! Oh YES! How beautiful is the gospel pictured in that wonderful little book… I preached from Hosea not long ago and i’m always greatly moved by its message.

        1. You are so beautifully kind; alas, I’ve been so remiss at posting here (the Lord has been working on me in other areas 😊) but I feel I’m to splash about in this stream again! Bless you for sharing, Beth.
