Today’s song describes many folks in the world today, putting on their ‘game face’ and acting like everything is going great … when inside they're a mess, hurting and feeling all alone.
Friend, we all have troubles and trials in this life. No need to put your feelings aside or fake your happiness. Jesus knows your heart; and true Christ-followers will love you through your mess because we’ve been there too!
When you have Jesus in your heart, you are never alone! John 16:32 - “Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me.”
Jesus doesn’t care what you look like or what kind of car you drive. He cares about your soul; He cares about having a relationship with you. He wants to call you ‘friend.’
At the throne of God's grace we are all poor!
Lie number one: You're supposed to have it all together And when they ask how you're doin', just smile and tell them, "Never better" Lie number two: Everybody's life is perfect except yours So keep your messes and your wounds and your secrets safe with you behind closed doors But truth be told, the truth is rarely told, no... I say, "I'm fine, yeah, I'm fine, oh, I'm fine, hey, I'm fine" But I'm not, I'm broken And when it's out of control I say it's under control But it's not and You know it I don't know why it's so hard to admit it When bein' honest is the only way to fix it There's no failure, no fall There's no sin You don't already know So let the truth be told There's a sign on the door, says, "Come as you are" but I doubt it 'Cause if we lived like that was true, every Sunday mornin' pew would be crowded But didn't You say church should look more like a hospital? A safe place for the sick, the sinner and the scarred, and the prodigals, like me. But truth be told, the truth is rarely told
Jesus will never forsake those who trust in and love Him. May we be such friends to others, for our Master's sake, Who loves us forever!
“Blessed be the Lord, who makes us welcome to come to his throne, without money and without price. May his gifts make room for him in our souls.” ~Matthew Henry
