The email from this precious twelve year old girl this week really broke my heart:
“My parents are getting divorced and none of them are gonna stay in our current house. My Dad wants to move to Missouri and my Mom wants to move to Utah. I don’t wanna come with either one because I hate them now but they’re making me decide. My Mom has a new boyfriend who I hate to bits but my Dad doesn’t have any… at the while, maybe.
CAN YOU HELP ME???”
My first reaction was “Where do I begin?”
Maybe you have been where this young girl is. Maybe your spouse left you for someone half your age. Maybe your teenager has broken your heart by choosing a path in the opposite direction than you have raised him. What are we to do with pain this deep?
I have the Answer.
“Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet My unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor My covenant of peace be removed,” says the LORD, Who has compassion on you.” Isaiah 54:10 NIV
He is the only constant.
He is the only thing that is stable and secure.
His love is the one thing that can truly change our situations by healing our hearts and giving us hope to stand on.
It begins by believing that His unfailing love will not in fact be shaken…no matter what. It begins when we pour this truth over the wounds allowing it to fill in the cracks and be a balm to the bruises of broken human love.
This is the radical love that turns things from disaster to hope.
UPDATE: The response has been so great we are extending our give away until Friday, May 6th! Today is the last day of our “His Revolutionary Love” give away. Today for every book purchased on Amazon, we will give away a copy to a girl who might not otherwise be able to obtain one. We will give a book to a girl who needs to know this unfailing, unconditional love.
Today’s partner is Safe Journey. Safe Journey is a community organization that exists to partner with teen age moms helping them to complete high school and move on to get a college education. Tomorrow I will speak at their Rise Summit where I will take copies of “His Revolutionary Love” for each girl present.
Will you choose to invest today in the lives of one of these precious girls? Click here to order.
Thank you so much to each and every one of you who have partnered with us so far! The support has been nothing short of amazing. God is completely blowing my mind. Most of all, I truly believe that as we speak the truth of True Love lives of young women will be changed for eternity.
With you as you raise your own and reach out to others –
