This life will always be full of heartache and tears. Band-Aids and bruises. Concrete falls and scrapes. Broken hearts. Boys that are taken and have no interest in taking you to the dance. Getting your hopes up only to have your dreams shattered. Wearing yourself down to just be accepted. You fall short of the mark. And all you want is him to hold you. All you want is to forget the heart-wrenching things he said. And the songs that haunt you, the soundtrack of your life. Years of disappointments and let downs, but yet surprises, breakthroughs and unexpected miracles. So if there’s one thing I could share with you…
I found my worth hanging on the Tree at Calvary when The Son of God was slain for me. The Blood that atones yet forever more and saved my soul from eternal hell…the Blood of the One Who pleads my cause when the accuser comes. Jesus, The Christ, The Son of The Living God. I didn’t know love until I met Him. In the arms of every man I never felt this. I never felt pure love. I never felt unconditional love. I never felt that I meant everything to any of them. You see in the Arms of my Savior, I am everything to Him. I am the joy and the reason why He went to the Cross and endured the shame, the unthinkable that I cannot fathom. How could He love me like this? One Verse in His Precious Word sings such great volumes of kindness and love with a passion that no one will ever be able to fully grasp this side of Eternity. The reason I live is found in those Red Letters. Oh Jesus, I love you. Have mercy on me.
This isn’t my story, this is His. Now my life will never be the same. I have a purpose and it’s forever. Forever in The Arms of a King, my Bridegroom. My Saving Grace. You have a place there too, precious one! There’s a fountain of living water for all who thirst…one drink and you’ll never be the same. All of your pain, every tear, the worst memories will all fade into the background when you stare into His Eyes… Jesus is real and He wants your heart. He wants you to give your life to Him and to walk with you and make you His Son or Daughter. God became a man and died for you as the sacrifice that was needed to restore mankind unto Himself (after the fall in the Garden of Eden when sin entered). The wages of sin is death. Father God and all of Heaven paid the Greatest Price for you. For me. Leave it all behind and lay your load at the foot of The Cross. Release and freedom await you. There’s a peace that surpasses understanding. No matter what life throws at you on the road ahead, you will never ever be the same once you meet Jesus. There is joy for strength. The Joy of The Lord. We don’t have to hurt anymore. We matter. Jesus loves you, cry out to Him today and begin the journey of true love, into forever.
Psalm 34:18 King James Version (KJV)
18 The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.

It is in the darkest moments of life, or ‘the wilderness’ that we are able to really see God and just how Mighty & Powerful He really is…but also how loving. In the depths of depression and worries of life, God is with you. He’s there when you wake up at 3 a.m. and can’t sleep. Still listening, waiting for you to trust Him…and after that…its just mind-blowing. You can’t go back.
