Very few of us have escaped pain, injury, and torment in this life. Some of us have even caused those things in other people’s lives.
Well, I have good news; Jesus wants to restore the brokenness in us and others.
There were many times in my life that I actually think people said that to me. I knew it sounded good, but today I know that I didn’t really believe them. I even use to ask myself, “why doesn’t this work for me?”
I found the answer about 28 years ago. I had to get honest with me and God. You see I did not have a clue of how much He really loved me. I knew John 3:16 frontwards and backward, but it did not make good sense to me.
Sometimes things that happen in our lives try to deceive us about Love. God met me where I was, but He did not leave me there. He sent people, books, and Love across my path. And so very often I knew they came from Him. There were times that a scripture I had learned as a child would come to my mind, and I would try to meditate on it but, there was like a veil blocking me from the truth of that verse.
God had a plan for my life and I started to sense that if I just hung on to His hand, I would get there.
Ephesians 3:19 “To know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.”
