Unlimited Grace part 2

Biblical Characters vs the present generation

 

Acts 9 speak much of the life of Saul more famously known as Paul. The man who has written majority of the New Testament and by his testimony we can see the grace of the Lord work in him. The bible states that Saul was the type of ma who would threaten Christians and would act on his treats. Saul was a Jew and hated the Lord and his disciples his occupation was to persecute believers. Saul’s name was well known and feared among believers. Where everything changes for Saul was when He was on his way Damascus, sent there by the order of the priest to arrest and imprison believers whether man or female.

 

He had an encounter with the Lord Jesus, the man’s people he was persecuting. The conversation between him and Lord went as follow…

 

Acts 9:5

“Saul, Saul why do you persecute me?” “Who are you, Lord?” Saul asked. “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting,” he replied. “Now get up and go to the city, and you will be told what you must do.”

 

This was when the Lord blinded Saul. Eventually Saul got healed after following the Lords instructions, there are a few things that I like about this passage of scriptures.

 

  1. The Lord at that moment could have strike down Saul for all the crimes he has committed against Jesus followers.
  2. Saul was healed while the Lord could have left him to be blind for the rest of his life.
  3. Ananias obeyed the Lord while knowing he might very well lose his life in Saul’s hand.
  4. Saul received the Lord Jesus as his personal saviour and began to grow in the Lords teachings
  5. Saul started preaching and teaching the gospel to people in the temple and also to the Jews and proving that Jesus is the Messiah

 

The Lord is just and fair as we been through at the start, but here we see the Lords mercy that he has towards people. I see that Jesus also died at the cross for Saul as bad of a person he is, He had probably 1000 of deaths that he was responsible for, God showed him grace. The second point his when God spoke to Saul with an audio voice, we can see that Jesus wants to have a intermit moment with the Lord, establishing a relationship between himself and Saul, while at the same time conveying the importance of the message he wanted to deliver to Saul.

 

As you would read on, on how the story continues we read of Gods faithful servant Ananias. God showed him a vision and went, even though he feared for his life. I believe as he went and stepped out, the Lord strengthened him.

 

The amazing part of the story of Saul is that he gave his life to the Jesus shortly after he was healed. The Lord turned a man who had hardened his hearts against the Lord, that just amazing. Saul after that the Lord had graces him with knowledge and understanding and in a short time preaching and proclaiming the word of God and It says that he baffled the Jews. No one could have ever predicted this man, Saul life changing this drastically and picture him as a believer.

 

I want you to imagine in your minds, the kind of person Saul would have been like if he lived in today’s world? I see someone like Hitler, a man who has authority and has prosecuted Christians and has committed many atrocities in his life. Would you imagine God saving that person or that person life changing for good and becoming a follower of Jesus? For me Hitler would be my modern day Saul.

 

Bringing it back to us, many of us have nowhere near done some of the things this two man described have done in over lives. If the was a scale that would weigh our sins compared to them we would be the skinny boy on the scale and they would be the strong muscular guy on the football or rugby team. Yet we still feel think to ourselves that the Lord won’t forgive us for what we done in the past. Or we may have a misconception who God is. I use to be ashamed for my sin that put Jesus die for me on the cross but as time went by I realised that there is no shame in Christ Jesus. What had happened my understanding changed on how I saw things.

Understanding love

I realized that we fall in love and also love the people around us but the is greater depth in that love that it’s hard for us to explain. The Bible refers to God as Love, and he loves us so much. If we can experience his love for us and the magnitude of that love when we are in His presence. Imagine how much more we would love those close to us or the people we don’t even know. We need to go to Love Himself so we can love others as he intended us to.

The scripture in John 3:16 still rings wonder to my ears. For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten son.

Unlimited Grace

I believe that God is taking me on a journey to understand his unlimited grace and there is so much out there that we don’t understand about Grace just how big it is. We already know that God has given us undeserving grace for the wrong that we have done even though we should have been punished for our wrong. Grace does not just deal with sin, but it’s also Gods unmerited favour on us. When God blesses us with things we don’t deserve or giving us things we never asked for. When Santa would have put you on the Bad list God puts you on the Good list.

 

Yesterday or should I say for a while know God has been taking me through the scriptures, and I thought I got the full picture of what grace is, I seen some of my own weakness of where I thought I was good Christian deserving of His grace in my past. Okay now let’s dig in the scripture so I can take you through the scriptures so we may go on this journey together. I believe in this walk tighter we will discover new things about yourselves that your knowledge and understanding will grow as we unravel the thread of Grace.

 

 

For us to understand Grace we are first going to have to go to the other curtain of Grace with is sin. We need to see for ourselves why grace is so important to us in our Christian walk. We will be looking and breaking apart several scriptures in the Bible to give us insight on this. Before we go any further we need to define what grace is and sin in plan terms.

 

Sin is separation from God, And the gap is coursed by the action that we do that stand against Gods will on earth or purpose.

 

Grace is Gods undeserving unmerited favour on one’s life. Meaning you did nothing to earn or to deserve it. It’s given out of God’s love for you.

 

SIN

 

So it is a known fact that God punishes sin, Its Gods duty to punish wrong doing or those who are workers of evil. We will start our search in the book of Romans the 1st chapter from verse 18-32.

 

Verse 18-21

For the wrath of God is revealed form against from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God has shown it to them. For since the creation of the world his invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, Because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.

 

 

This brief passage of scripture gives us an overview of history of what had taken place in the beginning of when men first entered the earth. We can find more information about this in Genesis. That was when sin was birthed into the world. Due to the action of Adam and Eve, the first humans on Earth.

 

Here are key point that I’ve gotten from this passages

  1. God judges sin.
  2. Men are made in the image of God.
  3. They knew in their hearts right from wrong. And they grew cold in their hearts and turned against God over time.

 

 

 

 

 

God judges sin

 

 

God is a just God and he is all that is Righteous, and the Bible describes Him to be without sin, and that he is the only one who is worth to judge sin, for He is the impartial judge.

 

1 Peter 1:15-16 

But a He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, because it is written, “Be holy, for I am holy”

 

1 Peter 2:21-23

 

For to this you were called, because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that you should follow His steps: “who committed no sin, Nor was deceit found in His mouth”. Who when the hurled their insults at him, he did not retaliate, when he suffered, he made no threats instead, he entrusted himself to him who judges.

[James 2:1-13]

 

Only Him who has no sin can judge seen, you may recognise this phrase, “with what measure you judge it will be judged back to you”.  The Father God know what best he is perfect and full of more love and compassion that me and you both could master up both in one 100 lifetimes. I personally don’t trust my judgement in most days.

 

Have you ever watched a court case on TV or a series where there is a court case? I personally enjoy series Law and Order or Suits. It’s hard to be sure is a person is guilty or not as a judge. Can you imagine the pressure that is put on our judges today to make the right decision? It’s just too stressful and too much work for us to do. That is why we leave God to make such decisions. God always knows best.

 

 

 

 

Men are made in the image of God

 

We are created by a creator, a designer an artist. He refers to us as his masterpiece. He made us with such love and there are scriptures that say he even has great plans for his creation. When God created us he inscribed his signature into our hearts, for we know that is where all the issues of life come flow. I believe that, that signature God left in our hearts it was his law inscribed in to our hearts, His will and dreams for us.

 

We start with a very famous scripture in Genesis when God first created the first man and women on earth.

Genesis 2:7

And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living being.

 Jeremiah 31:3

The Lord has appeared of old to me, saying Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love, Therefore with living kindness I have drawn you.

 

Were created for with love in our creators heart and we were created to dwell in our Fathers house for all eternity never to be apart from him. To dwell his spender. To give him glory and honour.

And lift his name high. But a sin created a gap that separated us form the Fathers love. For many generation, all that time away from God men grew cold and moved away from the only true God in the book of Genesis 6 there is a story of The Tower Babel. Were men where serving themselves, building a tower to reach there God. From there on paganism arose and other religion that are big on idol worshiping or the creation of new Gods. Like the God of Thunder, Thor. I’m sure we have all seen the movies or heard of the movies where he has appeared in Avengers. And the more time we spent away from God we became perfectos of evil. And even created new sins too.

 

 

Hebrews 8 verse 10 it states that God will put a new law into our hearts. This means that there had to have been an old law in our hearts.

Hebrews 8:10

“For this is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put my laws in their minds and write them on their hearts, and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.

 

As God creation we are called to bee his people that is his purpose. When we look at the book of Romans we are looking at a world living in the dark, in the sense of being away from Gods light. Romans was written sometime after the Death of Jesus and the Disciples where sent to all the world. I’m not a historian but its common sense. There was little light in the world, there were still large parts of the world that have not yet heard the gospel. And the disciples had lots of work still to do.

 

 

They knew in their hearts right from wrong. And they grew cold in their hearts and turned against God over time.

 

If you would look farther down the passage of Romans 1 from verse 28 to 32. It describes the type of sins that the people of that era were committing, it was a lawless time and people would act according to their instincts like the bible describes wild beasts.

 

Romans 1: 28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their Knowledge, God gave them over to a debased min, to do those things which are not fitting. Being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness, full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil- mindedness they are backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of who practice them.

 

I use to wonder why how people in the world could be so could and heartless. The things which we as people would do to one another. The wars and genocides of people that still occur in some parts of the country. I would watch the news and seen a glimpse of some of this things happening in the world or hear of something horrible that happend to a friend and ask myself this question, How can a person do this to someone? I still seldomly watch the news because of the things I see there. There was a day I asked God why the world like this is and I remember him saying that, there are many people whose hearts have grown cold and that they are no longer convicted by their conscious. Because they have become comfortable in there sin. I than understood that is why the gospel is so important it bring hope and it has the power to change the current circumstances. I Romans 1 we can see that the circumstances back than were like they are now. They gospel back than changed so many of those peoples life. Many came to follow Jesus. Showing that there is power in this name that was preached.

 

Jesus is the embodiment of Grace

 

Luke 2:10

Then the angle said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. “For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Saviour, who is Christ the Lord.”

 

Luke 2: 40

And the Child grew and become strong in spirit, filled with wisdom and the grace of God was upon Him.

 

Somebody said something so profound on the last Sunday of the year 2018. They said Jesus is the carrier of Grace. That was so profound I have never looked at grace in that light before. Jesus is Grace. It oozes out of him like a river of living water and it never runs out, He always want to give it out to those who are in need of it. I the first scripture, men is a witness to the greatest gift that is given to men. He became the atoning sacrifice for the sins of the world that we may be reconciled to God. We did not deserve such a gift, in fact we deserved to be punished for our sins.  Jesus came to the earth with a purpose and when it was time to fulfill what He intended to do, He went through with it. No is no greater Love than that. At a time when the disciples where clueless of what was going to take place even after Jesus told them more than once they did not believe.

 

The following verse says that ‘the grace of God was upon Him’ Jesus carries grace. Jesus became the bridge of reconciliation with God the Father. All because God loved us, there are some passages in the bible that says that the love of God surpasses all understanding. We cannot fathom the mind of God.

 

There is a quote that came to me it says

“God love for you is GREATER than your sin. Every day HE gazes upon you with Love. And He gives you an open invitation to came to Him, every day you breathe.”

 

Jesus states that he first loved us and he proved his love and died. You can find this passage in Romans 5:8. What I really what to say is that there is nothing we can possibly do to chase God away from us. Or anything that is we can do. There is no sin that we can do to commit that God can’t forgive us. Let’s go through some of the common sin that we see in today’s world

  • Theft
  • Sexual immorality
  • Prostitution
  • Lying
  • Murder
  • Drunkenness
  • Homosexuality

 

You see what I have come to realise is that the price has been paid for in full. There is no sin that he did not pay for in full. The problem comes in when we as people label sin and give them ranking. We say one sin is greater than another, for example we say lying is a small sin compared to murder. And that is not the way God sees it. God time in and time out tells us “He will never leave us”. So many time in the bible. The scriptures of Romans 8:35-39 it expresses to us nothing can ever separate us from the love of God.

 

Called to live in freedom.

 

The problem here now is, if you’re deep in sin like the once we mentioned. How do we than live a life free from the law that condemns us? We love God so much but we still have sin in our lives. As people we are good in hiding our sins from the rest of the world from our parents or those whom our actions will hurt. Is possible for us to obtain to live a holy life like that of Christ We are far away from being perfect and we are not.

 

I have come to realise that there is no way we can do this by ourselves. In John 14:16 it talks of a Helper. What is the job of a helper, he is there to help you in your lives journey. He lives in us and he is the whisper that speaks to us in times of need or just to talk to you as a friend. He only speaks what Jesus says and reminds us of what he said in the scripture. There is so much more than that in him.

 

John 14:16-17

“And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever- “the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him, but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. “ I will not leave you orphans, I will come to you.

 

I have come to learn that there has been an idea of what it means of being a Christian. Which tends to push people away. I know God’s intention for us is to live a life from sin. But we still do, we all fall short of this, but every day we try still. This idea is deep in our subconscious. Let me give you an example.

 

If a pastor was to cheat to his wife, we would assume he has lost love for God isn’t. But in fact he loves God with a burning heart despite his short comings. We judge without even knowing it. We focus on the bad more than the good and we are quick to judge. How a life of a believe in Christ should look like, should not be our owns idea but God’s.

 

I use to be a hypocrite because I would try to be a good Christian and try not to break the rules and life a holy life. What I did not realise, I would judge others why is this person being two faced for example? Or why don’t they to this? It’s not my place to judge but to love others and care for them. God deals with the sin, not us, let’s not make ourselves God. You could be deep in sin and believe in God. I understand that it’s a process of transformation of the mind and soul when you start your relationship with God as stated in Romans 12:2. I will finish of with this scripture in Romans 12:3

 

Romans 12:3

For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think soberly, as God has dealt to each ones measure

 

My elder brother told me we are all at different paces in our race of faith as said in Hebrews 12. You may be in the end of the race and your friend at the starting point and another at the middle. That is how life.

I Am thankful for…

IMG_5588.JPG

2018 has been a great year so to speak so many good things have happened to me, more than the bad. You can say the scales of good outweigh the bad. This year I had the opportunity to travel, meet new people and make new friends and the best part of the year was to see God actually use me to carry out his will. I am also thankful for the people who have taken the time to read my blog and having the opportunity to impact and influence life for the good.

In the beginning of the year I had a prayer list of things that I would like, for I would have loved to have a car by now, a new phone etc. And most of the things I wanted I never saw, it the things I am ever asked for or thought of asking for, those are the thing I am most grateful for. I made new friends and got the chance to meet new people who have added flavour to my life. I am thankful that I was able to grow in confidence this year by writing a book which I though was impossible at this point in my life and even starting a blog has done wonders for my self-esteem. I never thought that there would be people who would be eager to hear what I would have to say, because people know me as the funny guy who is always making jokes and the fun guy to be around.

To be able to have a space where you can truly express your heart and thoughts to the world, speaking your truth in your own words with no one else cutting in. I thank everyone who has pushed me to do what I never would have done if it was not for them I thank everyone who keeps me doing what I am doing by commenting or by sending personal messages that are encouraging. I am thankful that I had the opportunity to travel, I have been Cape Town a place I have never been to before right here in my own country. I had a great time there I wish I had more time to see sites and see more of the place I wish I can go back next year and see more of the place.

My family too I’m so thankful for them, they may be difficult at times and hard to agree with them but they are a blessing to my life. I thank you a God for all that he has given me, I thank him for protecting me. I’m sure I have so much to be thankful for and I don’t even know all the things I should be thankful for but I definitely am thankful.

Ministry Partnership Development [ENC]

IMG_0714

My name is Kindness Shikwambana and I am in full time ministry in the University of Venda for Every Nation Campus. I believe in changing lives through the word of God and empowering young leaders to be equipped to share the gospel to others through love, because as ambassadors of Christ, we are all God representative of the faith in with we are believe to Christ. Every believer should feel free to live out their faith and believes without fear.

If we can reach out to young leaders we get the opportunity to have influence in many sphere of society and reaching the next generation as well, by establishing strong biblical foundation, to the people on campus. How do we do that? trough activities that we have in the local church like events socials for examples like color first, which is an event that we have to welcome first years into the family other activates include Engage Friday where we do evangelism.

You may be asking yourself where I fit in this whole picture. In the church I run engage department which is evangelism in the church. We have achieved much in this department as Venda campus. A brief overview is that we were previously not as strong in evangelism we only went out frequently in a year. But From last year around August I was equipped by the church to train other students on campus in our church to go out.

  • Here are some pictures we took through the year. Each picture tells each own story.

This is my small group

IMG_8818

We empower young leader through this to be strong leaders. By instilling Godly principals in young man. So they can be better leaders

Engage Friday

IMG_1335

Equipping others to share their faith and who Jesus to others and to grow spiritual in relationship of who Jesus is. there has been many testimonies and salvation through this activity of actively sharing the gospel.

FQKC8756

In late August a mission team came to help us equip and train young leaders in the church, and during their stay it was recorded that there was around 72 re-commitment and first time commitments to Christ in only two weeks. It only goes to show that the harvest is ready, we only need laborers.

If you would like to partner with me financial, by sowing into my life and to the ministry so I can do what God has called me for. This is what’s called Ministry Partnership, where you pledge to send a certain amount of your choice to me every month. It not just that but a relationship that is formed. If you would like to partner with me and God on what he is doing on Venda campus contact me at my email kindnesslshikwambana@gmail.com, or kindnesslshikwambana65@gmail.com .

Our vision as a movement is

We exist to honor God by establishing Christ centred, spirit empowered and socially responsible churches and campus ministries in every nation.

Reflection

fefa0d96-ea85-4264-98d0-6d39599eea4f

I am brunette

I am beautiful yet gorgeous.

And I am always on point.

 

Tall long legs,

Blue eyes.

Slim waist

Evenly toned skin.

 

Every day I face the mirror

It’s reflects truth of

How I look?

It tells me what works,

And what doesn’t

 

Its opinion is non bias.

10 min in day.

It judges my look.

And hands me the final vote.

 

When I leave Mirrors reflection

I am own my own.

Unable to view self (me).

I reflect back on what mirror showed me earlier.

 

I don’t forget my image,

I took a snap shot and

Stored into my memory.

Memories remind me of my beauty.

 

Mirror reveals.

Mirror tells truth.

Except the hearts reflection.

And how fare the heart?

 

Kindness S

 

_________________________________________________________________________________________

Been thinking on What James said in James 1:24-26. We as people use mirrors every single day from brushing our teeth to calming our hair and for the ladies who use the mirror to do makeup. After all is done with we leave the mirror knowing that we look okay. You definitely won’t forget how you look. Like the way we look at ourselves in the morning we should look at it like the Bible, not just seeing it or browsing through it but be doers of what it says.

22 Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. 23 Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror 24 and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. 25 But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do.

I love women and the role the play in society. I love the strength and the unconditional love they have to overcome trials and obstacles, which I have seen from my own mom and the friends I have around me. Like people MJ, Dineo, Matevhu, Tshili and others. Women should be appreciated and valued more. I appreciate you guys, lots of love.

Did you know each time you feed the poor you are feeding Jesus, or give cloths you give to Him. Even when you visit someone in prison. In Matthew 10:40-45. You don’t have to go far to make a difference where you are is just fine. Start something that will benefit others. The best live lived is one that is in service of others.

 

Matthew 25:34-40

“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world.35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ 37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ 40 And the King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you id for one of the least of these brothers of Mine, you did for Me.’

The heart-breaking story of Will Johnson

img_5002

 

This is a story about two people a boy and a girl. Love has bloom early and the aroma of young love is in the air. A sent of jasmine flower that pulls your heart. This tail tells of two 16 year old’s named Will & Jannat, who grow up in a small quiet little town of Jackson Valley.

___________________________________________________________________________________________

Will was a young boy with curly hair and a dark chocolate skin color, he blended in like every teenager in school. Will was setting in class when a new transfer student Jannat walked in class. Will starred at her as if time had stopped, Will noticed that she had hair as smooth as silk and her eyes were hazel brown. At that moment. Will felt something beating in is heart he could not explain for someone he had never met. He knew on the inside he did not want the feeling to end.

 

Mrs Adams introduced Jannat to the class and gave her a seat away from Will to sit for the rest of the year. Class commenced and the period went forward. Jannat was new to the school she was nervous and had not even found one friend yet. She was pretty shy for that whole first week, she barely noticed Will watching her from a distance with eyes of admiration. She later made a new friend named Sarah who would soon be her best friend. They became inseparable as school year continued.

 

Will day in and day out finally figured out that “wow I think I like Jannat”. It was the first time for Him. He came to a realisation and acceptance of this, a week of meeting the wonderful Jannat. With each passing day Will would attend same classes with Jannat and would occasionally speak to her and they would make small talk. Each passing day, Will would like her more and more. And eventually this feelings became love.

 

Time has passed and it was the Third quarter of the school year. Jannat finally confessed  to Sarah that she really liked Will and thought he was the cutest. Will had no idea of this. Will on a Friday night approached Jannat he slowly walked towards her as he was as cool as a cucumber on the inside and the most nervousness  he has ever felt. He opened his mouth and said “Jannat may I talk to you for a minute”. Jannat said “sure”. Will told her in a long winded why how much he LIKED HER, his words at first where hard for him to say but eventually he did. Jannat breathe taken at what she thought this could only happen her dream, came to life in front of her eyes. She said four simple words to Will “I LIKE YOU TOO”.  There was then a breeze of awkward silence in the air. Will caught off guard speechless, out of all the possible scenario’s he played in his head, he never saw this coming. He then quickly said to her in a moments hast without thought “Will you be my girlfriend”. Jannat agreed and it was sealed.

 

How they fell for one another within the first week, they were constantly together, staring into each others eyes lost in space, no words necessary to communicate. Sarah the best friend begin to see her friend Jannat a lot less. This is the nature of love. The school year come to an end and so much had happened through the course of that time. Jannat had made more friends and joined a sports team, Will signed up for extra class and various activitys for extra credit, oh and Sarah still friends with Jannat, she had a crush on someone and also joined her best friend in taking up a sport.

 

Something happened that summer holiday. Jannat’s parents sat her down, they had not so exciting news to tell her.Her Dad said “Sweaty, I got an amazing job opportunity to work for an engineering company. We are going to have to move across state to Wisconsin in two weeks’ time”. Jannat’s heart dropped and she feel into a daze her mom tired explaining the reasons but she heard nothing of it, over taken by shock. Jannat had a lot of processing to do with this information and how she would go about it.

 

After three days of processing she came to a decision that she would have to break up with Will in order to for him to be able to move on without her in his life. A big decision left in the hands of a teenager. Later that day she picked up the phone and gave Will a call, you see she was not strong enough to do it in person. She told him that she loves him but it won’t work and anymore and “IT’S OVER” because she is moving far away and dropped the phone. And that was that, She never saw Will till the day she left, she messaged him a month later after she had moved.

 

 

Will on the other end of the phone call, was heartbroken at hearing that she was leaving Jackson Valley and when he had also heard what she said next his heart broke into more pieces, like a mosaic on the floor. She is not only leaving town but him too. The words “IT’S OVER” rang in his heard over and over again. Days passed whilst Will tried getting hold of his love with no success, than a few days later she had left”.

 

In Will’s home, his Mom began to worry about him. She was a single parent and she did not know that Will even had a girlfriend. To her eyes Will was still her little innocent boy who was single and haven’t had his first kiss yet. Will began to close off emotionally and a while later he barely ate. His mom had no clue what was going on with him, Will spoke less by the day. His mom in desperation sent her son to all the best help money could buy.Psychologists, doctors and other specialists to look and test her son.

 

After months of testing and probing the doctors and the specialist figured out what’s wrong with Will. He had a pain that they were unable to treat and that was a BROKEN HEART. Mom found out from who and why from Will’s  friend who had come forward after she approached him. Mom had no way to turn to help her son. A week had passed and she had met someone whom she had invited into her home and into her heart and He was Jesus Christ. He preferred being called Jesus or J for short.

 

This man told Wills mom (Marry) that He is able to help him out. Marry jumped in joy as she was hearing this and she then was overjoyed. Jesus instructed Marry to take a passage of scripture from his word and go read it to your son and I will guide you what to read to him. Jesus gave her three passages to read from. And she read

 

Isaiah 61:1

“…sent Jesus to heal the broken-heated, proclaim freedom to the captives, and to open the prison of the bound”

 

She read some more

John 10:10

“… I have come to that you may have life and life in abundance.”

And lastly

 

Colossians 1:2

… being knitted together in love, and attaining to all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the knowledge of God, both Father and Christ.”

 

 

When she was done reading something magical happened to his hear that she could not, his broken heart was pulled back together. It was a new heart, better than the last. Will than invited the man who had fixed his heart like her mom had done. And after that day He had a greater love that resided in him one that will never ever leave him. A love that forever. And a kind of love that no one could ever in a million years separate him from

 

The End

I wrote this short story because you know why. We could be going on life with an untreated heart issue that could have happened to you in your past or is happening to you. The heart is one of the most important organ in the human body, it is where all the issues of life come from. So if it’s infected or injured it’s a problem. Guys there is not all the ice-cream in the world you could eat to heal your heart. Maybe you have tried other ways and they have not worked for you. Give Jesus a try and let see if He can, if he says he can surely he can. He has been doing it for me every time I got to close to the flame meaning ladies and got burned.

 

“The longest piece I ever wrote

Hope it’s great.”
