struggleI ask myself the question, what is God’s heart towards me? Really how does he feel about me? You may ask yourself this same question, thinking to yourself, “I’m not good enough to be saved. How could God want to use me? I’m nothing! I was a joke in school. I’m not smart and nobody likes me.”

I thought the same things. As I was having my pity party on the inside, not really showing how much I was hurting on the outside, God encountered me and revealed to me His heart and that I was LOVED! I saw that no matter how much I struggled, that I could keep my gaze on Jesus and a promise in is word. That He would never leave me nor forsake me! I realized that this Man, who had it all, and did not need anything else, saw me and loved Me!!!

God Reaching manI was weak and depressed. I hated the world. I thought everyone hated me. But Jesus reached down and touched me. He put a new sense of worth in me and up till then I had never felt so much Joy and Happiness in my life. Just when you think there’s no hope for you, Jesus can reach to the innermost depths of your shame and struggle and pull you out of the muck, set you on a solid foundation, and show you a love that no man or woman could ever show. He took everything you could ever go through and he crucified it on the cross and when he resurrected he did NOT BRING IT BACK!!!!!!!

for-meThose of you reading this who are in a struggle; He loves you and He wants you and he’s not mad at you! You can never get too far that God can’t reach. His arms stretch as far as the East is from the West; that’s a long way. It’s never too late to give your heart to Jesus! He’s waiting on YOU but you must answer his call. Ask him to speak to you today and come and change your Life. He died to do it and he longs to do it. That is God’s heart towards me and YOU!
