Ever been so lost, so broken so hurt you were inconsolable? No one was able to reach you, nothing was able to help? You felt like death was the only way out? I have, unfortunately 😢 Not sure if it's because I'm a creative person and I just always felt my emotions so much more extremely or I'm just a drama queen, as my family called it. Either way that didn't change the fact that I was going through things and for many years music was my only outlet, until I it wasn't anymore.
After fulfilling my dreams of getting out the hood and becoming a pop star, it became even harder to find things to fill my void. I realized success, money, fame, relationships or nothing on this earth could help my brokenness. Then I went to a Christian church that a friend invited me to and had a spiritual encounter with Jesus. That day I knew His love reached deeper than anything I ever knew before.
"That according to the riches of His glory He may grant you to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God."
Once I felt His love invade places of my heart and soul that no one or thing has ever reached, I was committed. I vowed to be loyal to Him because I realized He was sooo incredibly loyal to me and even more than that, He could reach deep down into the dark pit I dug myself in and pull me out. During that time of my life where I wrote my song, "Mr Wonderful" God had also sent me my husband, who by God's grace was also willing to crawl down as far as he could to find me in that dark pit that God pulled me out of. In the arms of Jesus, I finally found my safe place and he sent hubby to show me that not only does he deliver but he redeems.
"He drew me up from the pit of destruction, out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure."
"God is our safe place and our strength. He is always our help when we are in trouble. So we will not be afraid, even if the earth is shaken and the mountains fall into the center of the sea, and even if its waters go wild with storm and the mountains shake with its action."
Reflection: Are there pits in your life that are just too deep? Have you exhausted your avenues wondering why nothing can reach deep enough? I did and found wholeness in Jesus. Who can understand creation better than the creator?
If you've never accepted Jesus into your life - simply invite Him in. The Bible says if you believe in your heart then you'll be saved. Let Him into those secret dark places and let Him bring healing.
