Inescapable, all-consuming LOVE






"Give me Jesus.
You can have all this world,
Just give me Jesus."

-Jeremy Camp



 

The hurt and pain of this world is inescapable. 


If you watch the news, even for just a few moments, you’re likely to see stories of unforeseen tragedies, natural disasters and evil manifested in sex trafficking, child molestations, rapes, murders and school shootings.

 
There are hurting and devastated families, and communities torn apart all around us but if you look closely you will also see LOVE.

 
A love that overcomes even the darkest moments in our lives—the all-consuming love of Jesus.

 
I’ve suffered great loss and devastating tragedies in my own life and if not for the love of Jesus I’m not sure I would have survived the unspeakable pain of those circumstances.


When our hearts are broken into a million pieces and we doubt if we’ll ever be whole again— when we have nothing left and we cry out to Him— Jesus picks up the broken pieces and carries us, holding us close, mending all that is broken, until we’re able to walk on our own once again.



Friends, this life is too hard to try to live without Him.


 

It doesn’t matter what you’ve done or what choices you’ve made— just cry out to Jesus.



He will rescue you from the deepest, darkest pit of despair.



He will comfort you, and give you a peace that only He can give—a peace that the storms of this life cannot destroy.


 

And when you know the love of Jesus your heart’s desire is to share what He’s done for you and what He wants to do for all who are lost and broken.
