Unstuffed


We all have it.

No one is exempt.

It comes in all shapes and sizes,

It just won't go away

because

we carry it with us wherever we go.

STUFF~

A memory. A feeling. A hurt. A circumstance. A person.

No matter how hard you try to

forget

or

stop feeling

or

pretend it is not there

THE STUFF

has become part of your story.

You can't rip the page out,

but it is ripping you.

What STUFF are you STUFFING~

hoping it will just go away if you don't face it?

But what if

you didn't have to carry your

STUFF

any longer because there was

SOMEONE

who wants to

not only carry it all

but

give you so much more in return~

HOPE~

in the midst of despair.

LOVE~

when rejection becomes your middle name.

LIFE~

when your story has stopped still.

GRACE~

when forgiveness is needed.

JUSTICE~

when life just isn't fair.

KINDNESS~

when pain and suffering is all you remember.

VICTORY~

when you want to throw the towel in.

FREEDOM~

from the STUFF that what binds you

because you invite

JESUS

into your story

by facing what you don't want to face

by looking into the

face of

JESUS

who will pierce your heart

with

HIS

healing touch

because

HE was pierced in order to do so~

"But HE was pierced for our transgressions, HE was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on HIM, and by HIS wounds we are healed" (Isaiah 53:5)~

Whether you choose to face it or not

YOUR STUFF is still there~

so why not

"Cast all your anxiety on HIM BECAUSE HE cares for you" (I Peter 5:7).

When you face what you don't want to face

by looking into the

face of

JESUS

HE will pierce your heart

with

HIS

healing touch

because

HE was pierced in order to do so~

"But HE was pierced for our transgressions, HE was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on HIM, and by HIS wounds we are healed" (Isaiah 53:5)~

So why not

"Cast all your anxiety on HIM BECAUSE HE cares for you" (I Peter 5:7)

way too much

to let you & I carry it all by yourself.

Therefore,

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened..."

and bring all your

STUFF

"...and I will give you rest" (Matthew 11:28)

because

HE is so much

"GREATER" (listen to the song below)
