As I pray for all victims of abuse, my heart is deeply touched as I read the Jesus Calling Devotional reading for today (June 14). We have all gone through struggles of life, trying to find love and purpose while making many mistakes… but God is and has always been just waiting patiently…
“I have loved you with an everlasting Love. Before time began, I knew you. For years you swam around in a sea of meaninglessness, searching for Love, hoping for hope. All that time, I was pursuing you, aching to embrace you in My compassionate arms.”
“When time was right, I revealed Myself to you. I lifted you out of that pit of despair and set you down on a firm foundation. Sometimes you felt naked–exposed to the revealing Light of My Presence. I wrapped an ermine robe around you: My robe of righteousness. I sang you a Love song, whose beginning and end are veiled in eternity. I infused meaning into your mind and harmony into your heart. Join me in singing My song. Together we will draw others out of darkness into My marvelous Light.”
I can tell you that this touched my heart because it is so true. I floundered through the years, making mistake after mistake, trying to please man, not God, and failing to succeed. And only when I was broken and hitting rock bottom did I reach for God to help me through my devastation. Then, He started revealing Himself to me and letting me feel His Presence like never imaginable. I know that what God has done for me, He can and will do for many more who are abused and broken by the trials and tribulations of this world. He has given me the words “Walking Wounded” to describe those who have been wounded by the trials of this life… and that includes all of us.
