Romans 5:6-8 KJV
For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.  For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.  But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
I was 9 years old and about to enter the theatre room for surgery when I read these verses and it just didn’t make sense.
I’ve been sickly since I was 2 years old, something about my bones, I didn’t understand back then, now I don’t even want to know. I can’t remember a time on my early life that I ever had strength. I was always weak. Too weak to walk, too weak to talk, too weak to play. Too weak. I couldn’t even go to church every Sunday and I believed that God didn’t love me, I didn’t go to His house regularly and I also didn’t allow my mum to be regular in church. How could God love me? I was too weak, I couldn’t do anything for Him, and there were so many people in the world who actually could, He couldn’t have any spare love for a sickler like me.
I’d already been prepped for surgery and we were waiting for the specialist to arrive, my mum sat at the foot of my hospital bed and read Romans 5:6 to me. And it didn’t make sense. Why would Christ die for people who don’t have strength? They obviously had nothing to offer. Then verse 7 said that nobody would die for even a good man talk less of a righteous man, but verse 8 said that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
I began to cry that very moment, my mum thought it was because of the procedure I was about to go through. There was a 60-40 chance of survival and the odds weren’t in my favour. I told God there and then that if He spared my life, I would use even the tiniest bit of strength I have to show forth His glory.
I’m 16 now, God’s love is so overwhelming when you tap into it, even when I am weak all I do is ask for his love to take over and it always does.
His love doesn’t just make me stronger, it doesn’t just relieve the pain. God’s love gives me wings.
New post. Yay!
God’s love gives me wings. Fact.
So whatever it is you’re going through, stop fighting, stop struggling, stop stressing, stop crying. Hand it over to God and just stop. Let it go. Let Him take over and He will leave you speechless when He’s done.
