I was at a grocery store last night and heard a loud crash. Being curious, I walked towards the sound and saw some people whispering and looking back to the end of the next aisle.

When I walked down that aisle, I saw that an older lady had hit a shelf and many things had fallen to the ground and broken. She was kneeling on the floor embarrassed, frantically trying to clean up.

I felt so bad for her. Every one was just standing there staring at her. So I went and knelt beside her and told her not to worry and started helping her pick up the broken pieces.

After about a minute, a store manager came and knelt beside us and said, “Leave it, we’ll clean it up.”

The lady, totally embarrassed said, “I need to pay for all this.” The manager smiled, helped her to her feet, and said,

“No ma’am, we have insurance for this, you do not have to pay anything!”

Now, If you have read this far, please, read on for just another minute.

Wherever you are, consider how God does the same for you and I. See the broken pieces of our mistakes or the pieces of our broken hearts from all our challenges and choices, all over the floor. We’re there trying to collect all of the pieces, clean up the mess, and fix things ourselves.

God comes and kneels right down beside us, smiles and says to us, “Leave it there, I’ll clean this up for you.”

God loves us that much and wants to put all of those pieces back together if we’ll let Him.

All we have to do is ask Him to forgive us, help us, and heal us. He’s faithful.

Please, copy, paste, and share this like I did.

Someone, somewhere, needs to hear it.

Oh, and you are the one who needed to read this today, may I challenge you to consider this:

God loves you and has a plan for your life.
The Bible says, “God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, [Jesus Christ], that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life” – John 3:16.
Jesus said, “I came that they may have life and have it abundantly” – John 10:10.
Here’s the problem:
Man is sinful and separated from God.
We have all done, thought, or said bad things, which the Bible calls “sin.” The Bible says, “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” – Romans 3:23.
The result of sin is death, spiritual separation from God – Romans 6:23.
The Good News:
God sent Jesus, His own Son, to die for your sins.
Jesus died in our place so we could have a relationship with God and be with Him forever.
“God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” – Romans 5:8.
But it didn’t end with His death on the cross. He rose again and still lives!
“Christ died for our sins. … He was buried. … He was raised on the third day, according to the Scriptures” – 1 Corinthians 15:3-4.
Jesus is the only way to God. Jesus said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me” – John 14:6.
Would you like to receive God’s unconditional love and forgiveness?
You can’t earn salvation. We are saved by God’s grace when we have faith in His Son, Jesus Christ.
All you have to do is believe you are a sinner, that Jesus died for your sins, and ask His forgiveness.
Then, turn from your sins—that’s called repentance.
Jesus knows you and loves you. What matters to Him is the attitude of your heart and your honesty.
Please pray this prayer:
“Dear God, I know I’m a sinner, and I ask for your forgiveness.
I believe Jesus Christ is Your Son. I believe that He died for my sin and that you raised Him to life.
I want to trust Him as my Savior and follow Him as Lord, from this day forward. Guide my life and help me to do your will.
I pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen.”
You can have a real, lasting peace today, through a real relationship with Jesus.
