God rescued us from dead-end alleys and dark dungeons. He’s set us up in the kingdom of the Son he loves so much, the Son who got us out of the pit we were in, got rid of the sins we were doomed to keep repeating. God loves His Son, and His Holy Spirit”. Colossians 1:13-14 (MSG)
Oh, beloved one, the good news never ceases! No matter what is, what has been, or what could ever be—this God Who loves you so, is always by your side, with the best of intentions in His heart and the ability to hold your heart and your dreams too! Despite the messes and mix-ups life can bring; the pain of the pits we have found ourselves in; or the darkness of despair that tries to swallow us up; He is there.
And not just there to stay with you in the midst of the mess, but to scoop you into His loving arms, and carry you to someplace wonderfully brand new.
What limits you, holds you back, or holds you up today? Father, Son and Holy Spirit are right here, right now, inviting you in to their great love story—a redeeming love that is committed to, and focused on you.
Put your hand in theirs, beloved. Tell them exactly what it is and let their unlimited and unending love and ability see you through.
Jesus, I have longed for a love that would bring healing; a love that would set me free; but often found myself looking, and living, in all the wrong places instead.
Beloved Saviour and Friend, even in those times when I lost my way, You were looking for me, to tell us me I was already found, and completely free. Free in the love You have for me; free in the love Father, Son, and Holy Spirit have for each other. Free to live the life You designed for me and just be!
Your forgiving love makes You so wonderful Lord; Your tender-hearted mercy my greatest hope. Come into my life now, into the pits and the pain. Rescue me with Your redeeming love so that I may be whole and free again!
In Your Precious and Holy Name, and with a heart of thanksgiving, I pray.
