One Thing Is True

Thanks for your prayers for Friday’s appointment.

It was tough. I’ll maybe write more when I’m less raw, but  – thank-you.  Your prayers have been – and are –  lifelines.

I want to be stronger and braver than I am.   I feel like the smallest, weakest, most insignificant thing on the planet. I’m trying to sort the truths from the lies. And to believe in the stuff I can’t yet see.

None of us  know what the future holds.  Sometimes, it’s hard going. But one thing is true: Jesus is in the present and in the future.

Jesus has been in the past. When I looked good, and knew best. When I told Him that I was fine on my own.  When I was a cadaver who’d rather die than worship.

Thank God – He refused to leave me. He loved me then and loves me still.

That’s what we cling to.  He has hold of us. He loves us and He is trustworthy and more beautiful than a million babies or a million husbands or a perfect body or whatever else we long for. Whatever happens, He is real. And He is For us.

  1. So encouraging. Jesus is worth more than our deepest-seated longings – he is more satisfying than all of them. And how true that he fights for us in our struggles. He is praying for you! xxx

  2. Reminds me of this song!

    All my life I had a longing
    For a drink from some clear spring,
    That I hoped would quench the burning
    Of the thirst I felt within.

    Hallelujah! I have found Him
    Whom my soul so long has craved!
    Jesus satisfies my longings,
    Through His blood I now am saved.

    Feeding on the husks around me,
    Till my strength was almost gone,
    Longed my soul for something better,
    Only still to hunger on.

    Poor I was, and sought for riches,
    Something that would satisfy,
    But the dust I gathered round me
    Only mocked my soul’s sad cry.

    Well of water, ever springing,
    Bread of life so rich and free,
    Untold wealth that never faileth,
    My Redeemer is to me.

  3. Loving you Emma, we are praying for you. I have only started to have a bit of a grasp of Jesus love. It is enough :)
