“Somehow He wants me.” By: Melodie Rose Jordan.

“”Thus says the Lord who made the earth, the Lord who formed it to establish it—the Lord is his name: Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known.”‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭33:2-3‬ ‭

On Monday I was having a pretty bad day. I just felt Satan attacking me with many mixed emotions and I almost gave into the lies he was telling me. I could have easily just lay there in my bed, with my face tear stained, thinking to myself “why would God want anything to do with me?” I suddenly heard God talk to me and he said, “Melodie, why don’t you go on a walk? I’ll show you why want you.” So I obeyed and headed out to my favorite walking trail just a few minutes from my house and remembered that the day before I added new music to my playlist from my favorite band Tenth Avenue North. The first song that came onto my playlist was called “Control.” As I began to run while listening to the lyrics I instantly stopped in my tracks. One simple lyric changed my whole mindset: “God you don’t need me, but somehow you want me. Oh, how you love me and somehow that frees me to let go of my life and give you control.” Wow. God really did show me that He wants me. I know there are many of you today who felt the way I did. “I mess up all the time. What could God possibly do with me?” You see, God is so much different than anyone on Earth. You may be rejected by a job application because your experience is too low or you may be rejected by a friend because they don’t like that you follow Jesus. I’m telling you today that God will never reject you. He humbly came down to Earth to be with us. He chose to hangout with those who weren’t consider the “cool crowd.” He was rejected even by His closest followers. There was even one point in my life I rejected Him. But, He called out to me and to you and said: “My child, even though this world will try to keep you feeling dark and gray, I will be your Light. Follow me and my teachings and you will never get lost in the darkness again.” I pray today that you all know you are wanted by our loving Jesus. He makes everything beautiful, even through the ugliest of messes. ❤️

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” John 14:27
