Broken yet Chosen
Have you ever felt like you were good enough?
like maybe you have just been passed over?
or maybe things will just keep on going this same way and nothing will ever change?
Like a failure?
like maybe you don’t live up to everyone else expectation?
like maybe you have just been passed over?
or maybe things will just keep on going this same way and nothing will ever change?
Often times we judge by the outside
we judge our lives based on outside voices
our friends
we live a certain way because we want to fit in
we want a place
a relationship
we so want to be loved
we want value
so we do things wwe cross line to feel some sort of value
our families
for some it is the constant pressure of not letting them down
for others it is being adandoned
through divorce
or just leaving
we want there attention
maybe we have been neglected
and it tell us we aren’t good enough
maybe its media
we don’t look a certain way so we need to change that in order to be desirable
Studies prove that media can have a negative impact on self image.
TV, movies, magazines and the internet all bombard teens with images and pressures about what their bodies should look like.
The problem is, their version isn’t realistic.
These images are air-brushed versions of models who weigh 23% less than the average woman.
Nevertheless, millions of teens believe the lies and resort to unhealthy measures to try to fit themselves into that impossible mold.
so we do this in multiple ways
we don’t eat
we make ourselves do other things that we don’t want anyone else to know about
all of these voices speak
and they lead do roads of feeling like we need something more
like we aren’t good enough
roads of depression
of loneliness
of hurting
of constantly looking for life and only finding hurt after hurt
There is a story in
of Jesus meeting someone just like this
John 4:1
so Jesus stands before this Samaritan women
we get so caught up in our life
verse 4 “He had to travel through Samaria”
it shows that God meets us where we are at
In Jesus’ day the Jews, because of their hatred for the Samaritans, normally took the eastern route in order to avoid Samaria
Jesus being a good Jew wouldn’t want to have contact with a Samaritan
especially a women
Jesus chose the route through Samaria in order to reach the despised people of that region.
As the Savior of the world He seeks out and saves the despised and outcasts (cf.
Luke 19:10).
but yet He had to go there
sixth hour- noon
see was by here self getting water
Jesus meant Her at the hottest time of the day when she was getting water by herself
we all know women don’t do anything alone
You see she was alone because she was judged
they go to the bathroom in flocks
she wasn’t good enough according to the rest of the town
But she was alone
you don’t carry around at the hottest time of the day
by your self
but everyone once else had labeled her
Jesus says “go get your husband”
her response “I don’t have one”
He comes back with “you have five guys you are with and the one you are with now isn’t your husband”
and what happens next it the most amazing thing
it shows God heart
instead of saying
you fool
your used up
your no good
or calling her names that we give to people who have been around the block a couple of times
He says “If you knew the Gift of God that stood before you you would ask and I would give.”
God sees where you are at
you aren’t hidden from him
and maybe even in this very moment He is telling you “if you knew the gift of God you would ask and I would give.
- is all these stories about things going getting lost and someone seeking them
It says that while the son was still far out
God meets us where we are at
it doesn’t say he was clean
no while he was still far off
still covered in the mess of the life he lived
God ran out to meet him where he was just as he was
The women at the well Jesus told her everything wrong she had done and was still doing but yet He still offered her the free gift of eternal life
Matthew 9
Are you lost?
are you feeling all the weight of the junk that you have been carry?
God can meet you right were you are at
just as you are
you don’t need to be perfect
Luke 18:9-
God came to seek and save that which was lost
the story is not over
After God had spoken into her life she went out
she shared here story
