It seems like we are living in a hurting world lately. The things I am seeing in the news and on social media are things that I have never ever seen in my lifetime. It just seems like there is so much more hate and anger with people hurting one another and turning to violence. People want a solution to whatever they feel angry about, but I just don’t see how turning against one another is going to solve anything.
The only real solution to anything that I can see is Jesus. If we don’t turn to him I think things are going to continue to get worse.
Maybe your not a Christian and when you saw what I just wrote you thought to yourself “Ya right! that woman is loony toons!” Believe it or not, I actually understand that because I used to feel the same way when people told me that Jesus could help the world or help me.
I used to think he wasn’t real.
Now I think maybe I knew deep down that he was real but It was easier for me to tell myself he wasn’t real then to risk the rejection that I thought he might give me because I thought I wasn’t good enough for him.
What nobody ever told me or maybe I just somehow missed it, was that Jesus didn’t come just for the good people or the ones who had it all together.
The truth is this….He came for the liars, the cheaters, the thieves, the murderers, the drug addicts, the abusers and the abused.
He came for the broken, the hurting.
Yes it’s true – He came for the good and the bad.
He came for Me and He came for you.
He came for us ALL.
Today’s music Monday song is Chain Breaker by Zach Williams.
This song brings me to tears every time I hear it because the words are so true!
If you’ve got pain, He’s a pain taker
If you feel lost, He’s a way maker
If you need freedom or saving, He’s a prison-shaking Savior
If you got chains, He’s a chain breaker (Chain Breaker lyrics by Zach Williams)
Can I get an AMEN?!
He came, He died, He took the blame, He took the pain. He took it all so we could be free!
I know this is true because my own life has changed because of Jesus.
Yes, I still get angry, I still get sad, and I still feel pain. But now I don’t face any of life’s struggles alone anymore.
I take comfort in knowing that when things feel out of control that God is still in control.
I take comfort in his love and I am free from the things that used to weigh me down.
My chains are broken.
Freedom in Christ is a way better life.
We all can have that freedom.
All you have to do is ask and he will remove your chains.
If you’re in need of someone to tell you more about the freedom you can have in Jesus let me know in the comments below or contact me via the contact tab on the top of the blog.
Have a great week!
