Sometimes my heart just breaks. It breaks into millions of tiny little pieces scattered all around me as I see a world that so desperately needs hope. I hear the echoing shatter as I watch life grasp hopeless things of this world that can only offer pain and destruction as it leads to addictions and strongholds that destroys lives in a rippling effect that multiplies by the minute.
We turn to things that falsely promise fun, significance, excitement, numbness, satisfaction, or love, but they are broken the moment we are sucked into the very vortex they swirl in. What we really long for is to be captured by someone who loves us unconditionally and that can satisfy every single need that we could ever have.
I know the darkness that my life once existed in, and the light of grace that brought it back to true life, and I long for everyone to know that grace. My healed heart yearns for every hurting and broken heart to know where my healing came from and to be awakened by the hope that awakened my soul.
The hope that my soul has been awakened by has found purpose inside of me, a purpose that my Creator is on the path to fulfil even now. There is a fire that burns within the deepest parts of me that want nothing more than to light the way to Hope, to Jesus Christ. I want every life that I can reach to know there is a promise that we can hold on to and that won’t be broken. The promise of abundant and eternal life through Jesus Christ, the One who laid down His life for ours. Oh how it must break His heart when He sees us chasing after pointless shadows that lead us down a road that literally gives way to a dead-end.
I was a life that knew darkness, and I am a life that knows light. My mission is to make that light shine in every corner of darkness that God leads me to. My desire is to passionately follow Christ so that I can passionately lead others to pursue a love that can be found nowhere else, a love that changes us at the very core of our being, a love that knows no limits, and the only love worth pursuing!
I am a life that has been changed, and I am a life that desires to take that change and use it to make a difference. I want to see hearts walking away from the lies of the enemy and the shattered pieces of broken promises and run to the truth of God’s Word and His promises that are unbreakable!
Yes, sometimes my heart breaks, but it’s through that brokenness that God’s message can be shared in the shattering with hopes that hearts will hear, accept and embrace healing!
Jesus said to her, “Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” John 4:13-14
