Today is an incredible day! Happy Wednesday! Having a bad day already? Take heart, God Loves YOU!
Maybe today you got some really bad news. Maybe you just found out that you have cancer. Maybe one of your family members or friends passed away today. Maybe today you are thinking about suicide. Maybe you are depressed and you think there is no hope. Maybe you have lost your job. Maybe your spouse left or you found about an extra marital affair. Maybe you are the one involved in the extra marital affair. Maybe you think there is no point in a relationship with the Lord. Maybe you are struggling with a drug, porn, gambling, narcotics, sex, or alcohol addiction. Maybe you or a family member is the victim of a violent crime like rape, kidnapping, or homicide and you don't feel that there is any hope for justice.
Know this my friends, GOD DOES CARE! He sees you and He knows exactly how you feel, He knows that you need hope!
"Jesus came to open the prison doors and set the captives free." (Battlefield of the Mind- Joyce Meyer)
God wants you to know that He loves YOU! Group 1 Crew's newest song, His Kind of Love talks about how God loves those who are: broken, bruised, sinner, hurting, drug addict, suicidal, alcoholic, porn addict, sex addict, gambler, narcotics addict, ex-convict, self-mutilator, plagued with guilt and victimized by crime. If that is how God loves you, how can you possibly refuse His Kind of Love? I would recommend that today you listen to His Kind of Love by Group 1 Crewon You Tube.
(I also encourage you to listen to Air 1 radio, there's a couple of different ways you can listen. You can listen online by going to www.air1.com and click "listen now" or you can download the Air 1 App for your smart phone or you can look up the station for your city. I hope you find as much encouragement from the music as I do every day!)
Will you listen to the Holy Spirit? He's calling you; He wants to have a relationship with YOU.
Will you pray this prayer with me right now?
This is a prayer from the book The Helper by Catherine Marshall:
"Father, I thank You that You have so lovingly provided a way to meet my every need, that You and You alone satisfy all the deep and hidden hungers of my heart. You know how much I hurt. You see my unshed tears. I even battle bitterness sometimes, Lord. Take that away and give me Your comfort instead. How I praise You for Your gentleness with me. But even more, that You send me the Enabler to supply the strength I do not have, to undertake for me. Thank You Lord. Thank You. Amen."
Did you pray? I hope that you feel encouraged by the Holy Spirit today! I hope that you know that you are LOVED! I love you my friends and God does too!
