Yes, there were bad things that happened in my story.
There will probably also be more bad things happen
before I take my last breath on this broken planet.
But the bad is not the end of my story!
Our Creator God (the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob)
stepped into the empty spaces that left my heart longing for so many years.
Our God can heal every hurt when we give Him our broken pieces.
He restores. He renews.
He heals our brokenness and fills our empty spaces.
I know this from personal experience.
A heart that longs for the One True God will never be left unsatisfied.
Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty. But as I told you, you have seen me and still you do not believe. All those the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away. For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me. And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all those he has given me, but raise them up at the last day. For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day.”
He said to me: “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I will give water without cost from the spring of the water of life.
Those who are victorious will inherit all this, and I will be their God
and they will be my children.
I felt it would be negligent if I did not also include this warning that followed the above verses:
But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers,
the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—
they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur.
This is the second death.”
Do not follow the crowd along that path…it only leads to destruction.
We have been given fair warning. Do not ignore it.
No matter how far down that road you have traveled,
you still have the option to turn back.
It's one of my new favorites...and so timely!
