January 14, 2009 - I Had Forgotten

"Jesus looked at him and loved him."
(Mark 10:21)


Unduly stressed, overwhelmed by life, not sure of what to do I cried out to God. "Why Lord, why did you put me through this? I can't handle it an more!"

No great revelation came, the skies didn't open up with a beam of light coming down, the radio didn't stop playing music replaced by the voice of God.
I was left to wallow in my anger for awhile - I blew off a little steam.

I think when I go through trials I develop tunnel vision, all I can see is our troubles. No one else is suffering as much as I am, the world owes me something, no one understands me and no one can or will help me.

My thoughts drift to the "What would Jesus do?" question and I'm gently reminded that Jesus is Now - He's right here, never leaving or forsaking - always present and always loving. I had forgotten about His love. He declared and proclaimed His love for me from the cross - He yearns for me to accept His embrace - He desires me to receive His gentle touch, His reassuring Word, His overwhelming peace, His uncompromising faithfulness.

No matter what I've done, no matter who I am, no matter my thoughts, Jesus loves me. I had forgotten - like heat to my icy heart Jesus melts away the frustration, the despair, the anguish, the pain - like salve to an open wound He offers comfort and healing to my broken heart.

I had forgotten...have you?

Rejoice in the Lord Always!
