Stop running to other things to find security. Run to the Father. There will always be the “next thing.” If only I had that hair, that guy, that friend, if only those people stood with me when I needed them most. If only I had “that” then I will finally be secure and fulfilled All these things are temporary: our hair falls out, make-up washes off, breakups happen, friends walk out or betray you and people are fickle. None of these things where made to satisfy us- that’s God’s job. God made our core to be love and GOD IS LOVE. To try and find satisfaction in anything else other than the one person that’s has created our core will never satisfy. We were made to be filled by Him and only Him. Isaiah 40:8 says “The grass withers and the flowers fade but the word of our God remains forever.” and in that Word of our God, there are some sweet, sweet promises that will change your life.
One of my favorite songs is called “Out of Hiding” by Steffany Gretzinger- It says “I loved you before you knew it was love and I saw it all. Still I choose the cross and you were the one that I was thinking of when I rose from the grave. Now rid of the shackles my victory is yours.” He dies so we don’t have to live in lies. He left our insecurities behind on the cross, so it’s time we do too. “Now rid of the shackles. My victory is yours.”
Sweet one- It’s time to claim and live in the victory He died to give us.
