Shattered heart made whole in Jesus..
When someone I trusted betrayed me few years back, I was left with a very shattered heart. At that spur moment, it felt as if life was without any hope as it were. There were lots of fears, shame and pain within me.
I had so many questions in my mind and one of them was, "Lord Jesus, how could this happen to me? What have I done to deserve this? Why me, Lord?"
I just wanted to hide. The feelings were unbearable and all I wanted was for the excruciating pain in my heart to go away. I cried out to Jesus, "Please take away the pain, Lord. Please heal me, Lord. Please make me whole again."
And He did... He sent many people into my life; to help me to face things, to learn to forgive and be set free. I was open to listen because I desperately wanted to be healed. I never felt so desperate before in my life.
The Lord kept His Word. He made me whole again. In fact, with hindsight, I am in a much better place now. As it is said in Romans 8:28, "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose." This scripture comforts me lots. *smile*
As for my heart, I experienced Jesus loving touch and He gave me a brand new, soft and fluffy heart! I was jumping with much joy!
MUCH JOY & MUCH HOPE
And, I never thought I would be able to say this; but I am no longer afraid to trust and love again, because Jesus is there for me.
He has given me much Joy and Hope! So much so that I want to share that with everyone who wants to know! Though i still have lots of challenges in my life, the difference now is that I am able to face them with His Strength, Joy, Love & Peace. The fun part of it is that I am enjoying life as it is and aiming to live life to the fullness in Jesus!
