Walking in darkness without any light, there is no possible way to know where I am going. I’ve grown tired of stretching my hands out in front of me feeling my way around, now I just coast in hopes that I don’t run into a wall. Where is the light? How long must I struggle before I can see even a glimpse of sunlight? I’ve been in the dark so long I’ve forgotten who I am and what I look like. How did I get here? Where’s the exit because I no longer want to dwell in darkness. I no longer want to dwell in a world of unsurety. Have you ever felt like this?
Everyone has been in a place at least once where they questioned who they are. Some of us have strayed so far from home we longer can identify the person who stares at us in the mirror. Jesus said “I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life” (John 8:12). One does not have to live their life walking in circles, in darkness, without purpose…Wasting away. Why fantasize about living a peaceful life as if it could never happen? He that follows Jesus shall not walk in darkness but light. Your purpose will come to light, your talents will come to light, your life will have meaning! God can take the lowest of the low and clean them up, pulling them out the trenches of drugs, prostitution, porn, homosexuality, fornication, abuse, psychological prisons, envy, greed, etc. There is nothing too hard for God! There is nothing God can’t fix. There is no one too far into the world that God can’t nurture them back to health, a spiritual health. People are crying out for help and God is saying “Here I am” but they keep ignoring Him looking for people and things to rescue them from their troubles. They scream “I HATE MY LIFE, I JUST WANT TO DIE” and God is saying “I love you, come here, let me take that load off of you.” Slicing your wrist for lack of love that only God can give you and as the blood trickles down your arm, tears are trickling from Jesus eyes because He keeps calling you and you won’t answer Him. He can provide love, He can provide peace, He can provide finances, He can provide a healed heart, He can provide forgiveness, He can provide comfort, but how can He give it to you if you won’t accept it? If you’re looking for a way out…If you’re trying to find yourself…If you want more, more than what the world has to offer the answer is Jesus Christ of Nazareth, for He still lives.
John 5:24 Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my words and believes Him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life.
