He is my life, my breath, my entire being, my heart and soul. He reaches down into the darkest places of shame and guilt with the hands of a master surgeon and says 'that has to go, I created you for so much more than this...'
Will you let me heal you? Will you trust me to love you through this? Yes, a small and frail 'yes' escape my soul and steps into a new unknown. For every journey is new. It brings a new peace, a new joy and a new beginning. A journey into freedom to cherish and nurture until it has become all it is called to be. A journey into knowing me through Him.
For how long? I have no idea but I am trusting him to sustain me for the journey. It has been horrendous at times and I felt like my heart and soul were irreparably broken.
But then he whispers...
'Nothing is beyond my hand, nothing is beyond my grace, nothing is beyond my mercy and love for you. Take heart, I am working out a miracle in your life that will shine for others. You will help others to know me through your brokenness. Trust me, I love you!'
And so I trust, knowing I am loved and in His hands.
2 Corinthians 4:5-12
Remember, our Message is not about ourselves; we’re proclaiming Jesus Christ, the Master. All we are is messengers, errand runners from Jesus for you. It started when God said, “Light up the darkness!” and our lives filled up with light as we saw and understood God in the face of Christ, all bright and beautiful.
If you only look at us, you might well miss the brightness. We carry this precious Message around in the unadorned clay pots of our ordinary lives.
