Hello everyone! Welcome today, to Moments Spent with God! I am so happy to have you here today and my prayer; is that we will truly come to see, how loving and caring God can be to us…especially while facing the difficult moments in this life!
As I’ve been sitting here in my office…preparing to write to you today, I’ve been thinking on how good Jesus has been to me. I don’t know if many of you know this; but I grew up in a very dysfunctional home…where I never really came to know what real love was…that is, until Jesus walked me away from my past.
You know…it’s so easy to say “I love you”… “I understand”… “I care;” but until some form of action is attached to those words; then sad to say…they only become empty words, with no meaning and that’s what I felt growing up.
Throughout my lifetime, I’ve lost family members because they either didn’t want to deal with the past and resolve it or they never believed in my sexual abuse. I have come to see; that it’s so easy for people to create a fantasy world of their own, rather than living in reality. Sometimes, I think it’s because they find it easier to deal with life in this way; but I have come to see; that until we face reality; then we cannot press on and do what Christ has called us to do.
As I have gone through a lot of loss in my life, I have come to see Jesus, as not only my best friend…but the family I never had. When I go to Him and tell Him what’s on my heart, I know He’s listening and when I need someone to love me…hold me and bring peace to me…He’s always there…providing for these needs. He’s a friend that has never judged me once, for the mistakes of the past; but has always forgiven me and given me more than one chance at life. When I’m in tears and feel as though I’m in a world of my own; He steps into that world and lets me know how much He cares.
We all experience moments in our lives, when others have walked away or have mistreated us; but I know a god, who will walk beyond our faults and weaknesses and will be there for us…all the way. One thing I’ve learned though…we must invite Him…not only into our lives; but into every moment we live and breathe…whether good or bad.
Today…if you need a friend to care about what you’re going through and if you need someone, who can understand the deepest pain of your heart; then I give you the greatest friend I’ve ever had…Jesus! One thing I can say without a doubt; is that He will never abandon you and leave you as an orphan in the storm; but instead, He will draw close to you and will fill the empty voids left behind, by others that have walked out of your life.
Today, I can truthfully say that I know what real love is and I’ve come to see a friend that will stick closer than a brother or any other family member and I am so happy to call Jesus, my everything! Through all that I have endured in this lifetime; He has been the One, who has never given up on me but has loved me even more; then I thought that I could ever be loved.
Today, you may be facing a similar situation and you are looking for someone, who won’t judge you…only love you. Turn to Jesus and open your heart to Him and I know that you will find with time; that He can be your everything too.
Blessings on your day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
