I don’t know much. The more I learn, the less I know. All I know is God loves me and I love him and I want to make a difference: I want to help people to know him, I want to live Jesus’ words, I want to love like I’ve been loved.
All I know is there’s no time to waste. The world is broken and people need a Savior. Eternal life is grand, but they need a Savior in this life, here, now. People need someone to hold them when they cry, to carry them when they fall, to give their feet rest when they’re aching and tired. They need someone to love them no matter what, and to always take them in his arms no matter how badly they mess up.
All I know is Jesus loves you. Whether or not you believe that doesn’t change the fact that it’s true. He loves you even when you curse his name. He loves you even when you say he’s just a prophet. He loved you before the world was made, when all there was was empty space, when even the stars weren’t born yet. He loved you then and he loves you now, whether you even believe he exists or not. Belief doesn’t affect truth.
“O Lord, you have searched me and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue you know it completely, O Lord. You hem me in, behind and before; you have laid your hand upon me…Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence?…If I say, ‘Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,’ even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you.
“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.”
