I think it’s safe to say we have all experienced heartbreak once or twice—the feeling of a sledgehammer shattering our lives into pieces.
Two-timing never feels good, but more often than not, it’s part of a more excellent plan. You’re probably thinking, what is she talking about?
How about Jesus and Judas?
Jesus knows all too well the art of the backstab; it started with a little kiss.
In the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus’ beloved Disciple, Judas Iscariot, went to the chief priests to inquire how he could somehow benefit from handing Jesus over to the Romans. For the offer of thirty pieces of silver, Judas agreed.
Yet if Judas had not betrayed Jesus, He would never have been arrested and ultimately died on the cross to redeem all of humanity for their sin.
The most remarkable story of heartbreak and betrayal ever told. Jesus loved Judas dearly and trusted to allow him a very personal place in His life.
Our Father allows our hearts to be broken as an escape route from a place we don’t belong and with people who aren’t part of the master plan.
Included is a visual to detail that if Jesus hadn’t allowed your heart to be smashed open, how else would you have made it out to the light?
You’re free now, in Christ, and the rest is history and, for some, a story yet to be told but written. It’s time to thank Jesus for the escape route.
It’s time to get excited and serve the Lord and in love with your new heart. Perspective is worth more than bitterness.
It’s time to forgive and live.
