I love you Lord. Thank you for coming to earth in flesh, laying down your life, and dying for the sins of all of mankind (John 3:16; John 10:18).
This brought me so much comfort and hope. There are things in all of our family histories that aren’t perfect or pristine.

“O Child, how they search for Me, because the void inside has their hearts longing and their souls crying out.”
There is One who has healed me of my brokenness. There is One who has set me free from rejection. There is One who has given me life, Love, Purpose, Identity, And His name is Jesus.
