The LORD is near the brokenhearted; He saves those crushed in spirit. (Psalm 34:18)
In my deepest wound, I saw your glory, and it dazzled me. - Augustine
Wherever you are, whatever trouble you may be going through, God is with you. He is Emmanuel - God with us. From the pit of despair, from the dark corners of trauma and hurt, call out to God. Ask the Savior to save you and make himself known. You have value to him and he will answer.
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. (Ephesians 2:10)
That word workmanship is also translated as handiwork or creation. It is the Greek word poiéma. This is the root for English words like poem and poetry. You are a unique, handcrafted loved work of art, and God wants to redeem you.
Will you ask him to help you and to save you? Seek him for he is seeking you.
