A blog devoted to God and helping fellow Christians keep positive in Faith and in Christ.
I want to know who you are
Even if you’re falling apart
Reach in and touch your scars
And all the shame you’ve kept in your heart
‘Cause it’s not enough
it’s not enough
just to say that we’re okay
i need your hurt i need your pain
it’s not love any other way
‘Cause I already know who you are
And all things that kept us apart
So reach in and touch My scars
and know the price I paid for your heart.
God says, BREAK MY HEART FOR WHAT BREAKS YOURS!!!
Because He loves you. That’s why.
And I don’t mean that constant sort of loneliness or yearning for another person. I mean that deep, very alone kind of feeling.
The kind of feeling where no one will be able to see into your heart to feel your hurt.
They can say they understand or that they can relate. But no one can truly know.
But God knows.
And God hurts too.
So take it to him. Because he truly understands.
I’m so tired.
And I just can’t shake it.
I’m tired in my bones, and in my mind, and in my heart.
And I just can’t rise up right now.
Because you encounter someone who doesn’t know God loves them?
Do you ever become overwhelmed by the knowledge that someone hates God with all their heart, and they have no idea how much He lays down for them?
I don’t know if I’m just being oversensitive, or if this is a blessing or a curse. But I experience this feeling very often.
Please Please PLEASE read this to the end, even if you do not love or believe in God.
I try not to become angry when I see someone who is actively speaking out against God or doubters who are fervent in their mission to make others doubt.
Okay, so at first I get kind of mad. And I start to think, who do they think they are?
But then I start to think, who do I think they are?
They are a child of God. They are a human being, created with just as much meticulous thought and love as I was. They are blessed in Christ. They struggle, just as I do sometimes.
And then, I feel regret. Regret, because I cannot save EVERYONE I encounter. I don’t know if you’ve ever felt this kind of regret, especially with someone you are close to that you simply cannot seem to reach with the Spirit. It is heart wrenching. It is HORRIBLE.
And then I start to think about how GOD must feel about this person! He loves them more than ANYTHING! And He has to live with their rejection of Him ALL THE TIME!
The point of this seemingly pointless post is that Christians don’t approach atheists or non-believers or doubters to debate or argue to the point of stalemate. Okay, some may, but that’s not very Christian of them. But true Christians should feel pained by sadness over the turmoil that this person will face without God. And they should want to help to plant the seeds of faith, LOVINGLY.
I’m sorry if you’ve ever been wronged by a Christian or someone who follows God. People are corrupt. We cannot perfectly represent Christ or his love. And a lot of “Christians” don’t even try.
vow will try never to post anything hateful or untrue. I vow will try to be as Christ-like as I can. I vow will try to love you no matter who you are. Because I can’t be perfect. Because no HUMAN is. But I will do my best to be your friend. And I will do everything I can to help you through this difficult, mysterious, joyful, and sometimes hurtful life.
God loves you, and so should I.
So I will.
