Jesus didn’t save me from being depressed. I never was, but I might as well have been.
Jesus didn’t save me from cutting. I never did, but I might as well have.
Jesus didn’t save me from drugs. I never used them, but I might as well have.
Jesus did, however, saved me, kept me from becoming everything I was capable of becoming and more. He saved me from being a depraved sinner, rescued me from my own sinful nature. And though I’m not perfect and I stumble constantly, I can truly say my Lord will not let me fall.
It doesn’t matter if my sin is a white lie, a robbery, or a murder. Sin is sin, and “the wages of sin is death” — I deserve nothing, and yet he’s given me everything.
“My feelings are not God. God is God. My feelings do not define truth. God’s word defines truth. My feelings are echoes and responses to what my mind perceives. And sometimes - many times - my feelings are out of sync with the truth. When that happens - and it happens every day in some measure - I try not to bend the truth to justify my imperfect feelings, but rather, I plead with God: Purify my perceptions of your truth and transform my feelings so that they are in sync with the truth.”—John Piper (via thisisyourmaverick)
