Power to Change

"Sitting in front of the fire, I cried out to God. Not the headmaster God I was trying to impress, the real God of the Bible - Jesus. As I read from Revelation chapter 5 I was overwhelmed by the description of Jesus: He was both a lion and a lamb. Both fierce and strong - able to handle my intense needs - and meek and broken - One who was sacrificed for me. His body was scarred so mine needn't be. He didn't want apologies, resolutions or assurances that I would do better. He wanted me." Author and blogger Emma Scrivener who appears on this week's programme from the Keswick Convention.
