Break through

Do these words describe you or someone you know?

Alone with nowhere to run
Ashamed of all I had done
Lost, in need of a Saviour
I thought that all hope was gone

I suspect we all have things in our past which we’re not proud of. I’m sure we’ve all felt ‘lost’ in life at times when it’s felt like no-one care about us, and God has deserted us.

Even when we feel alone, and lost, there is hope.

That’s when love broke through
Mercy came calling to me
With arms open wide
I have been made new
By the power of Your blood I am redeemed
Freedom is mine
When there was nothing I could do
That’s when love broke through

No matter how hopeless our life may feel, God’s love will always break through and save us! We read in Titus that God will will save us, regardless of our past, and because of how hopeless our life feels.

At one time we too were foolish, disobedient, deceived and enslaved by all kinds of passions and pleasures. We lived in malice and envy, being hated and hating one another. But when the kindness and love of God our Saviour appeared, he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Saviour

Titus 3:3-6 (NIV)

I don’t know about you, but I am so glad that because of God’s mercy, I have been forgiven and am loved unconditionally. I pray that you too will experience God’s mercy, and love will break through into your life.
