Looking Out the Window

“For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.”

1 Corinthians 13: 12

King James Version

When I was growing up, my parents didn’t take us to church. I wanted to go to church mainly, to be honest, because I didn’t hear loud angry voices and arguing. To this day, I still shake inside when I hear a critical and sarcastic voice. I met this girl in school and her mother used to come and pick me up and take me to church. However, we didn’t have a telephone so she couldn’t call me and there were many times when she didn’t come to get me. I would stand at the window for over an hour hoping to see her car coming after me. That was the only peaceful time in my life.

One day, I was so lonely and desperately needed to hear a friendly voice that I walked high heels and all, to the next town. I was carrying my Bible, but I was a young teenager walking on the highway. The Highway Patrol officer stopped me and asked me if everything was okay and I told him yes, that I was just going to church. He took my personal information and told me to go on to church.

What I didn’t know was that he had went to see my parents and told them that I was walking on the highway. They came and picked me up after I had only walked about a mile and took me home. They grounded me and I’m not sure why they did because I can’t remember what they told me. The only thing I knew was that I was right back in the middle of the cursing and angry voices.

Jesus is waiting for us with open arms and a heart filled with Love and compassion. O that we would have the desire to escape from the snares of satan and into His Love! If you are looking out the window of your heart for peace, joy, and love, run to Jesus and allow Him to take all the hurt, confusion, terror, torment and loneliness from your heart. He will be the best friend you have even known. He Loves you so much and is longing to hold you in His arms and protect you from danger and hurt.
