Tennessee Williams wrote in the Glass Menagerie, “Time is the longest distance between two places” but looking back at where I was just a few years ago seems like yesterday. Some times I think it’s just a dream, how can someone who I can’t see, can’t touch or hear put love into my life and change me! Being a single man wasn’t easy and even when I was married I was still “looking for love in all the wrong places” but everything I did for love just got me into trouble.
“I’ve spent a lifetime looking for you, Single bars and good time lovers, never true. Playing a fools game, hoping to win, Telling those sweet lies and losing again”.
It wasn’t until I lost it all that I found a friend who I could turn too. I still remember the night I asked Jesus to come into my life, and He did. I have never been happier, my heart is overflowing with joy and yet there are still mountains to cross but I know I am not alone any more.
“You came a’knocking at my heart’s door, You’re everything I’ve been looking for”
I know most of you don’t like “religion” and until a few years ago I was one of you! Wikipedia describes Religion this way…
“Religion is a collection of cultural systems, belief systems, and worldviews that establishes symbols that relate humanity to spirituality and, sometimes, to moral values”.
Jesus might be the symbol of being a Christian but religion has nothing to do with what happens when thing change in your life. Religion didn’t save me, Jesus did and it’s not religion that changed my life, it’s a Relationship!
When I was alone then, no love in sight and I did everything I could to get me through the night. Don’t know where it started or where it might end I turn to a stranger, just like a friend.
You don’t have to be alone, their is a love that’s so real that nothing you can do will change your life no matter how wrong or bad it might be. It can start today and is forever and little by little you’ll find like I did you are loved! Jesus is no strange, He’s been waiting for you and He’s the love you’ve been dreaming of.
