I was lost in a world of abuse, neglect and brokenness that led me to become a young person that made a lot of poor decisions. When I had no more roads to take, I crawled the narrow path to God and He rushed in and healed all my brokenness, restored my value, renewed my thinking and even changed my appetite to only want all that is good.
My past was unwholesome and dark but God has turned them all around. The abuse is now my fuel for compassion. The neglect now opens my eyes and shows me how to love others. The brokenness helps me empathise with the broken.
Who is this God who did all this?
His name means God is with us. Yehoshua, Yeshua, Jesus.
All I had to do was open my heart and he stepped in. The minute he does, we are not the same. We have love burning through our veins and a passion for all that is good and all that is in the light.
All we need to do is to admit to ourselves that somethings in us are not of the light but of darkness. Truth really does set us free.
