We are a technologically advanced society, but our souls are sick.
We seek help in psychotherapy, support groups, tarrot cards, crystals – anything that will relieve the pain. But we find that these supposed sources of help are helpless.
The emptiness will not be filled.
What we long to know is that we are loved. To be more specific, we hunger to know that we are accepted as we are, forgiven for all we have done, and cared for by a gracious, loving God.
When we know this, we walk away well.
~ James Bryan Smith
Lord, I receive this day your acceptance, forgiveness, and care, believing You love me – like a Father. Amen.
