I’m writing this post because this topic was laid on my heart one morning late last year and believe it or not, the person that the Lord laid on my heart was Kim Kardashian! Don’t ask me why, but that’s the truth! So, this post is for her (not that I expect Kim Kardashian to come across this post) and many other women out there who can relate to it.
Before anyone gets on my case about this, while this post focuses on women, the sad reality is that there are also many men out there, who go from relationship to relationship, hurting women and getting hurt in the process! So, everything in this post, applies to men as well!
I’m going to refer to Scripture because everything I’m about to share, is based on God’s Word. As a Christian, the Bible is my go to source for all things concerning life!
Read before proceeding
Read the story of Jesus and the Samaritan woman in John 4:4-42
The First Move
The Samaritan woman did not know who Jesus was, but she knew He was a Jew and would have no doubt been surprised to see Him there. When Jesus spoke to her, it would have been a greater shock as Jews did not interact with Samaritans and considered them to be filth.
But Jesus did speak with her, treating her as a person of worth! Jesus didn’t stop there. He revealed to her only details she knew about herself! She immediately knew that Jesus was a prophet! We know from the Bible that this woman had been married five times before and was living with a man who was not her husband! Rather than judging and condemning her, He offered her living water, that is, He offered her salvation, redemption! She told Jesus that they were waiting for the Messiah to come and tell them everything!
Jesus revealed to her who He was, that He was the One that she was speaking about, the One everyone was waiting for!
The Bible tells us that she ran to tell the people in her village about this Prophet, wondering out loud if this gracious and insightful prophet could be the Christ! Jesus went on to spend more time there when they insisted and many more were saved!
Are you like the Samaritan woman? Have you been seeking comfort and meaning in one relationship after another? Do you keep telling yourself it’ll be better “next time”? Are you nursing a broken heart? Are you secretly struggling with an inexplicable emptiness? Are you questioning your self-worth?
Your life is not over!
Please don’t despair! Jesus is speaking with you today! Question is, like the Samaritan woman, are you willing:
a) to hear the good news of Jesus
b) to believe His Word (the Bible)
c) to receive Jesus into your life as Savior and Lord!
The choice is YOURS!
The choice is yours:
- Keep going about your life as you have been, keep getting hurt and disappointed as you have been, keep living a hopeless, empty and weary life
- Receive Jesus with a childlike faith and be born again!
Encouragement from the Bible
I pray that the Bible verses below will encourage you even further to turn to Jesus.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (Jesus, John 3:16)
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” (Jesus, Matthew 11:28)
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!” (2 Corinthians 5:17)
“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” (Psalm 139:14)
You are SPECIAL to God
God made you in His image, beautiful and wonderful! He loves you and longs for you to know Him! Not only that, He has a plan and a purpose for you. Just read this verse below from the Bible!
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11)
You’ve lived your life the way you want till now and you alone know where it has gotten you.
Why don’t you give Jesus a chance now? Look at the Bible verse below!
No one will be able to stand up against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you. (Joshua 1:5)
God promises that He will always be with you. You can trust Him with your life here on Earth and for all eternity.
I am praying for you, whoever you may be, that you would indeed come to know Jesus as Lord and Saviour.
God bless you.
