I’m not sure who needs to hear this right now, but you are NOT ALONE. There is nowhere you can go that God isn’t able to find you or meet you where you are. Today may be hard, this season may be hard, this year may have not gotten off to the start you were hoping for, but it’s not over. Get back up, and keep going. Wherever you are, if you just keep moving forward, the storm clouds will soon fade into the background and the beauty of God’s promises will begin to shine over head. The radiant beauty of God’s promises will peak through and bring light to what God is doing and will remind you of what God has said for you. His light will reveal how He is with you and who He is keeping you.
Jesus loves you and you matter to Him, even if you can’t always feel it. He has a purpose for your life and it is more beautiful than you could even ask for, think, or imagine. He has plans for you and they are incredible.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11 NLT
“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2:10 NKJV
There is no place He cannot meet you in or pull you out of. His arms are not too short that He cannot save nor are His ears to bogged down with stuff that He cannot hear your request or cry. He is not over you or done with you, but He is actually desiring and willing to endure with you. There is nowhere you can go that He cannot find you, heal you, help you, and love you.
He loves us so much that He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, in the form of a baby who would live the perfect life, that we could never live. Then He died a death that we as people, could never die; a death that would heal the divide between God and man. It’s because of Jesus Christ and His love for all of mankind that brought Him down to earth…to be a gift for us and to one day become the ransom, the payment for yours and my own sin. Sin causes us to miss God’s standard for our lives, it causes us to live in ways that draw us away from Him and pulls away from our purpose. But because He loves us, He chose us and came to earth to let us in.
You matter to Him. Let Him in. Invite Him into your life. Ask Him to come live with you. If you already have, it doesn’t stop there, but invite Him into your daily living; into your good days and your bad days. Invite Him into the places no one has seen and even let Him be your Valentine this weekend. He loves you, and desires to walk with you each and every day. He wants to love you in all of the ways you need to be loved. He desires to show you all that He has places inside of you; all of the gifts and talents within you that will bless the world and move mountains. And just a little reminder: no matter how crazy things look now, He is working on your behalf; completing things in you and in your life that you know not of.
“And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.” Philippians 1:6
He will NEVER EVER FAIL YOU and He WILL ALWAYS love you!! You mean everything to Him and He will always be there. He is just a call away.
I hope your day, your weekend, and your journey will be filled to overflowing with God’s love, kindness, mercy and joy. And when you feel alone, or you feel like things are all bad, look up; you’ll find your help there.
“I look up to the mountains. Where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord. He is the Maker of heaven and earth. He won’t let your foot slip. He who watches over you won’t get tired. In fact, he who watches over Israel won’t get tired or go to sleep. The Lord watches over you. The Lord is like a shade tree at your right hand. The sun won’t harm you during the day. The moon won’t harm you during the night. The Lord will keep you from every kind of harm. He will watch over your life. The Lord will watch over your life no matter where you go, both now and forever.”
I am praying for you. I pray that your head be lifted high today as you finish reading this. I pray that your heart be filled with joy unspeakable. I pray that you experience God’s hope which is always full and never empty. And I pray that you experience His love which never fails, always continues with us and endures patiently with us. May you experience Christ’s love and His presence in your life in ways you never thought possible.
“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:38-39 NIV
God Bless you,
