“The Lord has appeared of old to me, saying: Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you.” Jeremiah 31:3
Jesus knows everything about you, and He still loves you with a great love like no other. He has seen your tears and heard your cries for help. Let him help you. Let him give you Beauty for Ashes. And for your former shame give you double for your trouble.
Jesus has not left you. Even when you left Him, the Lord has never left you. He wants to heal your hurts. He offers you forgiveness for your past sins. Don’t hide from Him; run into His loving arms. Let Him hold you tightly and bring you through. Let Him clean you up and make you new. Give Him everything. Every single bit of what keeps your head looking down. The Lord is saying, “Lift up your head to see Me. For it is from Me that your help comes.”
Perhaps you have seen yourself as ugly, but the Lord sees you as beautiful and worthy in His sight. So run, don’t walk into the loving arms of your Savior who loves you! Run!
