Have you been reduced?

"At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes. Even so, Father: for it seemed good in thy sight." Matthew 11:26-26

Have you been reduced to life's most basic?

There will be times when our pursuits, our visions and all our expectations will explode into reality.

Have you been so close to something, yet so far away?

Have you tried to take that one step?

Do you just want that one hour without pain?

Do you just want that one hand to hold onto?

Do you just want one more piece of bread?

How about one more breath of air to stay alive for one more second?

Sweet desperation.

This is what draws you closer to Jesus!

There are times in our desperation that we can not lift ourselves out, buy only Jesus can!

When we are in desperation there is no hope, no delight for anything brighter!

We must come to the place that only God can lift us up and out!

We must come to the point of the end of ourselves before God can do something for us!

It is in desperation that Jesus meets us!

it is in that place where the teacher becomes the student.

It is in that place where the tough become tender.

It is in that place where the grown up throws everything away for the heart of a child.

It is then that Jesus is standing there with open arms and says take heart, all is forgiven, be freed from your suffering!

All have come to Jesus in pain; crawling through the dirt, laying on mats, begging in the streets.

We all at some point in our life have been torn, rejected, used and afraid.

We need to let Jesus strong, yet gentle hand reach down into our wounds.

Come let Him embrace you and let those tears of compassion heal you!

Let Him come in and heal your broken life today.

"The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart: and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all." Psalm 34:18-19
