12 Jul Shaun’s Story: Whole
In some sense, this story has been 30-odd years in the making – 30-odd years of wrestling with addiction, self-loathing, loneliness, and rejection. However, it has also been 30-odd years of experiencing Jesus’ unconditional acceptance, tender-loving care, fierce, unfailing love, and unending mercy.
If you struggle with feelings of inferiority or rejection – a belief that you don’t belong, that you are a glitch in the matrix, a mistake – I would like to encourage you to let God in on your pain and your hurt. Let Him tell you how much you mean to Him, and allow him to show you just how loved you are by Him. Don’t give up yet because He hasn’t given up on you.
“He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.” (Ecclesiastes 3:11, NIV)
