For I know the thoughts I think towards you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11
When your in the storm please know God is with you. Let me tell you about a beautiful young lady caught up in sex trade. I will call her Francis. She ended up in a mental institution. Her only hope was that her wretched life would soon end. The acts she was forced to endure were unspeakable. Her family had written her off as unreachable.
The drugs she consumed numbed her pain only for a short season. She was hearing voices. Even the mother had given up on her dear daughter.
In my mind I can see her and hear her. She was clutching something in her hands. She said would you show me how to use this? Did she have a gun or razor? She was so broken she looked no one in the eye as she held a closed bible. The poor soul sobbed and said she had even prayed against God and didn't think she could ever know him or find him. God found her in a mental ward.
Later when supper was served she stood among the inmates and said, bow your heads and let's pray. The guard was so moved he also bowed his head. With child-like faith she thanked God that He had gathered them safely altogether and thanked Him for the meal. Do you know someone who is humanly unreachable? God has really long arms that will reach into your sons or daughters heart where-ever they may have drifted to. Trust Him! He loves His creation. Think about telling your storm how big your God is! JESUS SAVES!
