Who is Jesus...

Hebrews 1:3 set my heart a-flutter yesterday and gave me goosebumps all over.
I was speechless, in awe.

Who is Jesus you ask?

HE is the name above all names.
HE is the King of kings and Lord of lords.
HE is Saviour.
HE is Redeemer.
HE is Counsellor.
HE is Comforter. 
HE is Truth.
HE is Light.

You can trust Him, you can fall into His arms and let it all go.
You can reach Him when you can't reach anyone else.
He listens to your every thought even when the world around is deaf to your cries to be heard. 
He gently takes your heart when it's been shattered and binds every piece to His.

He is your Answer, your Hope, your one true  Love.

He is Jesus.

And I love Him more than life because He saved me almost 25 years ago - me -  a screwed up mess with a scattered path of broken life pieces that made me believe I was dirty, shameful, worthless and without hope.
He took a suicidal, depressed and broken young woman and with the gentlest of all loves He carefully and lovingly pieced her back together.
Through all these years He never walked away, and He never gave up on me.
Piece by fragile piece He gathered the shards of a sorrowful life and breathed healing love upon every one.

Perfect? No, I'm not. 
Still broken? Yes, the Potter's loving hand is till mending the cracked clay of my life.
Sorrowful? No. Not even about the relationships that remain unchanged and the ones that have been damaged since I became His. 

His timing, His way, and in His LOVE...I trust.

I agree, what a beautiful testimony. I am sure many can relate-I know I can. I felt just like you at one time. I still struggle and when I read one of my favorite passages "He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds." Psalm 147:3 I would ask about a certain part of my past that is not healed. After months of prayer He answered me in a small voice as if it came in on the wind.....My dear I am trying to heal you but you won't let me. You keep pouring salt in the wound so it continues to hurt and fester. I can't bind your wound up until you let me heal it first. I agreed I was the problem but it was truly years before I decided to Let Go and Let God as so many say. Sometimes that is easier said than done. It was me holding onto that hurt. I am now in a much better place that I have let go-not forgotten but a lesson learned along the way. Thank you for sharing what so many have felt or needs to hear.

Hey, Jenny! This is so beautiful and true and amen! I've shared your post all over the place ;). I found you thru Strangers and Pilgrims on the Earth blog, I think 😜. Lovely embroidery patterns, btw, and I'm looking forward to starting the first one you shared for this month. Bless you Sister❣

Brenda said...

Jenny, I applaud you for saying the prayer that accepted the Lord into your heart, life and soul that allowed all of the healing and remains strong and true today. I know and understand because I have been in a very similar state and thankfully chose the Lord my God also! Bless you Jenny for sharing and May the Lord continue to surround you and hold you strong as the pieces continue to mend! Amen!

What a Joy to open your email, Jenny and find our JESUS lifted up and proclaimed for all HE'S worth!

We have t h i s t r e a s u r e in earthen vessels
that the excellency of the Power may be of GOD
and not of us.
2 Cor 4:7

HE is worth it all!

Yes. He is all that, and more than we can comprehend right now. I'm grateful for Him, and I'm grateful for you.

Huggs, Jenny, and many more blessings wished upon you and your trials and testings. Many have been on the same similar road, but He saves the lost and dying, the sick and broken, You and me, and we give Him all the glory and praises for He called us by name. Chose us to be His friend and bride, because He loves us. Thank you again, for sharing a bit more of your story. Huggs, Judith
