If you must choose this day who you would serve I would offer you Jesus Christ. For me and my house we serve the Lord and I would offer him to you because in him I have found all the things I looked for in the world.
I looked for love in bedrooms, backseats of a car and dark corners but all I found was shame, self hatred and low self esteem.
I looked for love in a bottle of liquid fun and all I ever found was fake happiness, sour stomach and a headache ..
I looked for love in a cigarette and found smoke damage, high blood pressure and smoke covered clothing.
I could tell you even more places where I looked for love but I think you get the point.
Everywhere I looked I found emptiness, self doubt, destructive and evilness. This is a cruel world and I can promise you the enemy makes promises he can’t keep. He makes all the evil things look good, he makes it appear as if people love you and accept you but mess up.. speak out of turn or disagree, take a wrong step and you’ll find people don’t love you any more. People give up on you, write you off and share your shame and regret to show the world that you are unworthy. But not God, he loves us as is, he practices what he preaches by offering grace and more grace, love and more love, forgiveness and hope. The enemy would have you believe everything negative and destructive is what you deserve, he would be right but still wrong. I would suggest that you already know this because the enemy cannot give you what he doesn’t have. But I know about a man… whew who can do all things well. A man who speaks of love like this: “Love never gives up on people. It never stops trusting, never loses hope, and never quits.”
1 Corinthians 13:7 ERV
“Stay away from the evil things a young person like you typically wants to do. Do your best to live right and to have faith, love, and peace, together with others who trust in the Lord with pure hearts.”
2 Timothy 2:22 ERV
“God, you give true peace to people who depend on you, to those who trust in you.”
Isaiah 26:3 ERV
“Guide me and teach me your truths. You are my God, my Savior. You are the one I have been waiting for. Remember to be kind to me, Lord. Show me the tender love that you have always had. Don’t remember the sinful things I did when I was young. Because you are good, Lord, remember me with your faithful love.”
Psalms 25:5-7 ERV
