Hearts shattered by experiences that one can scarcely comprehend! Yes, it is true for people round the Earth. Inside the outer shell of untold millions, are stories so dark, that it would rattle us to the core! Trusts have been broken to smithereens! How is one ever to hope again? How is one ever to trust again? Yet, is it not true, that inside all, throbs the desire to be loved? To be accepted? To be cared about? To be wanted? Indeed, deep inside run strong emotions! Though sometimes the walls have been built so thick, that others don’t have a clue as to how we actually bleed within! Sometimes the broken lash out in anger. Sometimes they’re withdrawn. At other times, drowning ourselves in some addiction or other. And sadly, and too often, that one source of hope that one ought to have, is also gone, the people who call themselves friends, or parents, or grandparents, or – yes – even those who call themselves Christians! Yet, I challenge you to take a moment with me, one who has also been through “tough stuff,” and see that God, in reality, is so much different than people are! So unlike the picture we may have painted in our mind! Indeed, I myself found a friend in Jesus. I found Him to be a friend so distinct from any on Earth! Someone I could trust. Someone I could talk to. Someone who would listen. Someone who honestly cared. Someone who had demonstrated that He loved me! Someone who loved me despite my faults. Someone who was not a fair weather friend. Someone who wouldn’t betray me. I ask, don’t you want to know Him?
