Never Alone

Life can warp our sense of love, purpose, and relationship. We might be tempted to think God is like friends or family who’ve turned their back when we needed them most but God is not that way. Through faith in Jesus nothing (and no one) can separate us from the love of God (Romans 8:28).

 

As someone who has experienced the heartbreak of being abused and neglected the scars of insecurity and the fear of being rejected or abandoned are very real. My God loves me in the midst of my brokenness and slowly but certainly reassures me that His love is nothing like I’ve ever known or experienced outside of Him.

 

Tonight I just want to share this reminder: Jesus is always with us, even to the end of this age (Matthew 28:20).

Take Up Your Cross

As a follower of Jesus, I surrendered control of my life to my Lord. Here in His presence I experience the power to become the husband, dad, and person He created me to be. Yes there are things Jesus has called me to surrender but each time I do He shows me what I thought I needed to have life was keeping me from experiencing the abundant life He came to give me (John 10:10).

 

Tonight I can’t promise you that in Christ you’ll have worldly wealth, physical health, or human prosperity. What I can promise is you’ll be forgiven, free, new, and a child of God. I can promise you’ll experience a peace the passes all understanding and an unseachable love.

 

Long after the wealth and power have faded, Jesus is Lord. Long after the health and prosperity have slipped away, Jesus is Lord. When heaven and earth pass away, Jesus is Lord. Who (or what) is Lord of your life?

Mountain Mover

There is no mountain in our life that Jesus cannot move. Addictions, broken relationships, sickness, great needs, all these things are within the power of God to do the miraculous. Through our faith in Jesus, in God’s will, we will see mountains that were immovable cast into the sea.

 

What mountains in your life do you need moved? Come to Jesus no matter where you are or what you are facing and trust in Him to do what you can’t. If you’re weary and wounded, come and Jesus will give you rest (Matthew 11:28).
