You covered me in my mother’s womb. – Psalm 139:13 (NKJV)
Dear friend, God knows you. Not today. Not when you surrendered your life to Him. Not when you realized that you are a sinner. No, no… God knew you even before this world was created. God knew you by name even before you were formed in your mother’s womb. God covered you in your mother’s womb, protected you and even to this day, knows your every doing. Because He is your Creator. Because He is your Father. Because, like a good Father, He has plans for you. Plans that include all your failures. Plans that take into account all your shortcomings. Plans to give you hope and a future.
So, don’t let something that happens today to decide your life. Suicide is not an option, dear friend. A love failure is but temporary; it will fade away. Not getting a job that you desired is not the end of your life. Your life will move on. Not getting an education that you dreamt of, need not be the end of the road for you. When one door closes, God opens another door for you. The same eyes that looked at you, with compassion as you were formed in your mother’s womb, are still looking at you – with the same love and compassion. Come to God. Come to His Son Jesus Christ. And He will quiet you with His love. Amen.
