The deepest pain is the unspoken.
You know exactly what I’m talking about.
It’s much easier to join a movement for a cause than to stand up and speak what causes you to ache in the dark.
But Jesus knows and He loves you right to this very core. He sees what you often can’t recognize, feels the pain of rejection with you and soothes the wound with His steadiness.
Your Savior isn’t going anywhere.
This message speaks deeply to my heart because I too know the fear of being known and being rejected by man. I can trace that fear back into childhood and well into my adult years. I can see it’s shadow today in my relationships. It’s the response of a broken soul in a broken world.
But there is wholeness in Him.
Beloved, don’t let the habits of man shape your understanding of the Lord. He is not the violator. The Lord your God stands seeing your all and loving you all the more. And He is ready to bind up wounds, speak truth and hold your hand as you face tomorrow.
Be known and know you’re loved.
The LORD your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing. - Zephaniah 3:17
He brought me out into a broad place; he rescued me, because he delighted in me. - Psalm 18:19
