GUEST POST Written By Franca Licandro
I was an extra large mess before I met Jesus. The short version is, I was always intoxicated to numb my pain and to help fill the void in my life. I lived life from the viewpoint of not caring about my self-worth. I was unsure of myself, and needed the comfort of men constantly.
I didn’t know what love really was when it came down to it.
Since I met the Lord, He has helped me overcome things from my past. However, I was finding it hard to understand that God could love me, especially after all that.
I know what His word says but it wasn’t logical to me.
Earlier this year while listening to Christian music, a song called “Not For a Moment” spoke deeply to my heart. As the song played, God began showing me all of the ways he physically carried me through each intoxicated situation and ensured that I made it home safely.
God showed up in that moment and showed me how much he loved me before I even knew Him… before He was even real to me! He showed me that He loved me first. It’s illogical!
Everyday since then, He continues to show me how much I am loved by Him. He is helping me to understand what genuine, true love is, so that I can, in turn, do the same for others.
