The times that we are facing right now can make us feel abandoned and alone. People seem to be so caught up in keeping their own hearts lifted; that we just don’t see hearts that reach out, as there once was.
The other day, I was facing some rough moments and as I sat on the couch…feeling as if I was in a world of my own, I began to look back on my life for a moment and as I did, I came to see people that once were close to me. Yeah…they spoke all the right words…words that spoke love, understanding and care for me; but the one thing I came to see, was that they never really cared…and why…because the words stood on their own, with no action that would show me that their words of love were real and alive.
As I continued to think back on this…I began to truly see how I would have never been able to overcome these moments of “put down,” if it wouldn’t have been for Jesus…and the real love and care that He has shown me over the years. One thing I can say for sure…all my life, there has been no one who could have loved and cared for me like Jesus.
You know…I have come to see that it’s so easy to want to give up during times such as these…and why…because we are not only experiencing the Coronavirus; but we are also living in a world that seems to be out for itself and no other, which can end up making it that much harder to keep our heads above the troubled waters.
One thing I want to tell you today, from a heart that has felt tossed many times to the side…is that there is One who truly does long to love and care for you and that One is Jesus. Do you know that He knows your heart even more than you know your own heart? Yes He does…and He knows what you’ve been through and what you are going through right now.
I remember a time in my life, when I had collapsed emotionally, due to a horrible past. These past moments had entered some present moments…in a way that had longed to destroy my life forever; but as I entered a place in my life, where I was on the ground…looking up through the darkness; that is when I truly experienced a real love and it wasn’t words; but rather, it was filled with action and a caring heart…one that penetrated the darkness of the past, so I could rise up in the light of God’s presence…to a new life; that has now freed me from that horrible past.
You see…I’m not here to preach to you; but rather, I am here to give you hope…through the hope that I’ve truly experienced. Now I have a friend that is with me every day and every night…one that has never hurt me…but only a God who has shown a love that sometimes I can’t even fathom.
Why not take some moments in your day and let God pull up a chair within the heart. One thing I know for sure…He will listen and be there for you, just as He has been for me…for there’s a love that only God knows…and once you take hold of that love, you will never be the same again.
Many blessings on your day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
