Drowning in guilt and suffocating in depression, have you ever been there? It takes something more powerful than a prescription and more effective than a psychiatrist! “Love lifted me”, that’s “The Power of Love”!
16For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
As I write this listening to the song in the background, I can barely keep back the tears. Christ is all to me, it’s his blood that erased the guilt and shame that was destroying me from within; not to mention the damage that hatred had begun to do to my spirit! At the age of 13 I found myself at the doorstep of hopelessness and suicide was inviting me to cross over. I thank God for just enough faith to reach for the hand that was stretched out to me, as I grabbed hold; it was God’s love that came rushing in and made everything new!
Was life perfect from that moment on? No, but did I have what I needed to endure? YES! The power of Christ love filled me with so much hope and joy that I became fanatical for his cause! As I grew and matured in the word I realized that loving Christ was all the saving grace I needed! You too can have this type of hope and joy, if you don’t already! It doesn’t matter what you’ve done God gave his son because he loved us and Christ gave his life because he wanted to free us! Except his payment and walk in the joy He intends for all His children. Love is the most powerful weapon of all!
