From Brokenness to Peace

Dearly Beloved,

Hope all is well.  Friends, I am in complete awe of Luke 7:36-50 (NIV).  The story is about the sinful woman who anointed Jesus.  In her community she was viewed as a “sinner”, and was rejected among the people, and Pharisees.  We have all been where this woman was either now, or at some point in our journey.  Life happens to the best of us, and when it does it breaks our mind, body, heart, soul and spirit. How do you respond?  The correct response should be the example that the sinful woman displayed in the scriptures.

Friends she came to Jesus broken, yet full of faith.  She came in a worship posture, submission, and most of all love. She was able to put aside how she may have felt.  Her intentional healing was dependent on her believing that Jesus would restore her.  As she wept, and kissed Jesus’s feet, it was clear that she had full assurance of safety in the presence of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  Tonight, are you willing to lay aside everything that you may be experiencing and fall at Jesus’s feet? Will you allow Him to minister to you on tonight?

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. Psalm 34:18 Your heart may be broken and your spirit may be crushed.  God knows and understands all.  The sinful woman demonstrated love, and how truly sorry she was for her mistakes.  Forgiveness, and love from Jesus is always there no matter what.  Beloved, only have faith and believe that you are loved by God.  Peace will cover you and the same grace that is extended to you, you will be able to freely give to others. Until we meet again….

xoxo,

The Risen Warrior
