“The Son of Man came to seek and save those who are lost” (Luke 19:10).
I considered the verse and thought about the study I’d done on it years ago.
The word used here for lost means “destroyed, ruined, broken beyond repair.” I thought about Jesus, who didn’t come for those who are
doing-just-fine-thank-you. He came to save those who were and are willing to acknowledge they are broken beyond repair.
And even now, in His tender way, He comes to the doors of our hidden places and invites Himself in for supper. Jesus comes to us in the secret
shadows and bids us into the light. He wants to be in communion with us, wants to help carry the load of the pain and shame we secret away in
isolation". - Sheila Walsh, In the Middle of the Mess: Strength for This Beautiful, Broken Life
Friends - you may feel lost, alone and broken beyond repair, but you are none of those things... Jesus knows right where you are. He sees you.
He hears you. He's a man of sorrows, well acquainted with grief; He knows everything you think and feel - and He has the power, strength and
ability to restore, redeem and heal you like no one else can.
I've seen for myself and have heard from more people than I can count through the
years who have shared their stories of loss, pain and brokenness with me and how Jesus brought beauty from ashes...how He gave them joy
instead of a spirit of mourning and heaviness... how He healed them in ways they didn't think were possible. Keep looking to Him and leaning
on Him. One day at a time you will get through what you are going through with Christ's help.There is hope and healing because of Jesus.
In His love, Debbie Kay
