Jesus Loved And Pursued You Always
Jesus loved and pursued you throughout your whole life. He has been there ready to wrap you in his robe of righteousness and embrace you with his love.
The Lord appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness. Jeremiah 31:3 NIV
I took time to reflect and pray over this. I reflected on all my lost and broken years. It was important for me to try to remember the times I needed to feel loved and pursued. Was there a time in my past that I needed it more than others?
When I reflect back to my childhood and the trials that create my story I see times when Jesus was present and pursuing me. I think back to my first marriage which was a toxic abusive mess where there was more pain than joy. I still see glimpses of Jesus pursing me.
Jesus was never more present in my life than during my time of deep grief, regret, and sorrow over the loss of my mother.
The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. Psalm 34:18 NIV
I have had many hardships my life is full of various ones. These hardships are my story, my testimony. I have been crushed in spirit many times. AS a young girl my spirit was under constant pressure being crushed under all the different heartbreaks I experienced.
I am positive my spirit was on the verge of being completely shattered after losing my mother unexpectedly. This is when the Lod snatched me up and wrapped me in his rob of righteousness During this time of brokenness the Lord revealed himself to me. He lifted me out of the sea of despair and set me down on a firm foundation. For the first time in my life, the Lord infused meaning into my mind and a joyful harmony in my heart. The Lord filled me with purpose and meaning. He pursued me and lifted me out of my deep grief so we could join together and draw others out of the darkness and into his marvelous light of Love.
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. 1 Peter 2:9 NIV
Has there been a time in your life that you have been so crushed in spirit you were unsure if you would ever feel whole again? My dear friends Jesus Loves You, He has not forgotten You, He is pursuing You. His arms are wide open waiting for you to run into them and find rest.
Pray With Me:
