Brennan inspired me. He didn't have his act together; in fact, he painfully struggled with alcoholism his entire life. But he didn't believe that for God to love and accept and even to use him that he had to have things all tidied up. He simply believed that God loved him as he was, not as he should be. And he believed it deeply and fiercely!
I attended a conference this weekend that reiterated that message of God's unconditional love and acceptance of us (grace!) to my weary heart. Ironic? I don't think so. I think God works like that.
If you have a few minutes to watch this short video, I think you will be blessed by Brennan's words. Like I said, he believed them fiercely...and my hope and prayer is that you and I will too.
