But You Don’t Know…
You have no idea what I’m going through, you have no idea how painful this is, this crippling fear, lost my job, rebellious children, someone broke into my house, my dog and cat died, my wife/husband left me, found out I had cancer etc. etc!
"Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof." How much evil has begun to threaten you to-day? What kind of mean little imps have been looking in and saying - Now what are you going to do next month - this summer? "Be anxious for nothing," Jesus says. Look again and think. Keep your mind on the "much more" of your heavenly Father.
The longing of our heart is to KNOW an absolute security and folks it’s found in one place, person, Christ Jesus the Lord, and frankly I don’t give a rats ass how this may sound harsh or insensitive to any reading this especially those who are in some of the pain filled scenarios I’ve listed above.
Bottom line, “Today” is the day of salvation!
What you need, not what you or I want, is as close as the mention of His name, JESUS!
You ask, “If God loves me so much, then why am I looking up only to see bottom,” great question. It takes what it takes to bring us to an awakened need and somehow believing it can only be met in turning to Him.
Our world is filled with unthinkable terror, horror, pain and defilement, but it is this world that God sent His only begotten Son to become flesh to fully identify with you and me. Our humanity is something that he fully embraced, as a matter of fact; Jesus the Word introduced into the God head forever that very humanity.
Friend, stranger, brother, sister, He loves you as you are, He has removed ever obstacle that would try and convince you that there is NO way to find any reason or purpose for being alive.
I am convinced that anyone who has committed suicide did so not because they were tired of life, but actually tired of NOT having life.
