My Rescue Story
I have come to understand that believing in something and truly knowing it are two very different things. To know it would mean I lived it out in every aspect of my life. Unfortunately, this was not the case. The truth is, I never fully rested in Christ's love for me. I was uncomfortable with the fact that someone could really love everything about me—especially the ugly parts. The weird thing was, deep down somewhere within my broken heart, I longed for it. Isn’t that what we all long for, to be fully known and loved?
If we allow Jesus to heal those broken areas, we can love from a place of wholeness. In scripture God says he is the living water and we will never be thirsty if we drink from his well (John 4:14). We will love others without expectations. It will be unconditional and selfless just as Christ’s love is for us. Little did I know that I was about to go through a season where these realities would become my truth.
