Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
Jesus didn’t save me from being depressed. I never was, but I might as well have been.
Jesus didn’t save me from cutting. I never did, but I might as well have.
Jesus didn’t save me from drugs. I never used them, but I might as well have.

It doesn’t matter if my sin is a white lie, a robbery, or a murder. Sin is sin, and “the wages of sin is death” — I deserve nothing, and yet he’s given me everything.
