Friend, do you ever find yourself convinced that no one cares? That no one can help you, hear you, or heed your call? If so, I have an encouraging word: you are not alone.
I don’t mean you aren’t alone in feeling alone. I mean you are not alone, period. That raw, dark sense of isolation and powerlessness? It’s not here to stay. God’s presence and power is nearer than we think. We only have to look to the miracles of Jesus to know of this truth.
You and I long for Someone who will meet us in the midst of life’s messes. We long to believe in a living, loving, miracle-working God who won’t think twice about stepping into the thorny thickets of our world and lifting us out.
If this is your desire, I invite you to join me in taking a good look at the words of John and the miracles of Christ and see if they don’t achieve your deepest needs: “that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name” (John 20:31).
