As I was driving to work a few days ago, something caught my attention. Down the alley of a well-traveled street was an old alley dog. He was a scrawny little thing, matted, and dirty. That’s all I could see on the outside but oh…there was so much more going on inside. He was hungry, probably scared and lonely. He had managed to find a pile of trash and was digging with all his might to find what he was looking for. Then he spotted me and hid until I had passed on by. Once he thought I was out of sight, he went back to searching…
Have you ever been in a similar situation? Scared, Lonely, and Broken…hungry for something or Someone to fill this ever present void in your life? We know we shouldn’t be searching or hanging out at these places…maybe even hiding when we see somebody we know. But that doesn’t change the fact that you are still hungry. Maybe the party scene will fill this void. Maybe you’ve turned to drugs and alcohol. Maybe its people you are always turning to hoping that they can fill this void and cover up the brokenness and pain from your past. No matter what, you’ve searched and longed for Something, Someone to mend you back together.
Friend, I know Someone who can help. I know a place called Mount Calvary where our begging stops, where our brokenness becomes New Beginnings.
The world can’t, but I know a Man who can.
He was broken, bruised, and beaten so that you are made whole! He died so that you may live! And this Man, He loves you. You are His chosen…You are His royalty… He never intended for you to be digging through spiritual garbage cans looking for your next ‘fix’.
He desires for you to find a hunger for His Word where you will never lack again. Colossians 2:10 says that we are “complete in Christ Jesus”. Would you #TryJesus today?
