I know that these words are for someone. And if that someone is you, know that they are weighty words, and I do not mean them lightly.
I know what its like, to feel hollow. To have circles under your eyes that won’t go away. I know what its like to feel so, so empty, and what its like to know that its your fault things are the way they are, and to wish you had been different. But you weren’t. They weren’t. I know what its like to feel so heavy, that you are struggling to breathe because of the weight on your chest.
But I also know that it doesn’t have to stay that way.
“When the bucket is empty, you return to the well.”
I know what its like to be empty, to be hollow. But I also know what it is like to be filled again.
There is One who longs to hold you. Who longs to heal you. Who says, “I am not shocked about what you are, or anything you have done. I love you just the way you are.” There isn’t anything too damaged for Him to love. There isn’t anywhere too dark for Him to shine light. There isn’t anything or any relationship too broken for Him to heal. He says, “Come to me, all who are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
Jesus loves you so much! He shed His blood because of His great love for you! He died that you might not any longer be bound to sin, but find LIFE through the blood of Christ. He’s waiting, asking, hoping for you to come. Just as you are. His arms are open, ready, waiting. Will you come?
