Today, I came across this Bible verse: ” O Lord my God, I called to you for help and you healed me.” – Psalms 30:2
I felt like I had to share it even though it’s not about kids. This verse is truth. God heals! I’d like to break this verse down in a way that I feel I need to share.
“O Lord my God,…” – When I stop and think about why God, who is the Great I Am, wanted me to be his friend, I have no words. I’m NOT worthy, in fact, I’m a mess! But I’m His mess! I’m his perfectly imperfect mess! He made me! He died for me! He loves me! Isn’t that amazing!?! Thank you God, for making me your child!
“…I called to you for help..” – I know. Sometimes it’s hard to admit that we mess up. If you’re like me, you don’t always have to admit it, it’s obvious! We are sinners, and we cannot live until we have Jesus. He is the only way! Have you accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior? If not, pray now. Tell Him you are sorry for your sins (He will forgive you no matter what) and you want to follow Him for the rest of your days. It’s that easy! Pray! Pray that he will come into your heart and live (and He will).
“…and you healed me.” – He heals! That gives me the chills. The Lord of all creation loves me so much! He loves you, too! He is always with us – helping us, healing us, loving us. Every time you pray to Him and ask Him to forgive you, *snap* it’s done. Although you sinning makes Him sad, you are always forgiven. He lets you try again. He knows we will fall so short of perfect, and yet, He loves us anyway.
God is always there. Always. He’s there for us all. This week, I encourage you to open your heart up to Jesus and let him work his ‘thing’. Encourage your kids to do the same (always talk about Jesus with them). Just say, “Jesus, I need you”, and He’ll take it from there.
