Listen ... I bring Good News

Whether you're broken or whole, this video is balm for your soul.

See a child enjoy life with her Creator:  a life abundant and a life of joy.  Yet, as she grows older a myriad of influences intercepts this relationship and interferes with it.  We see her lured away by the world and seeking to belong in it.  Amorous men, the allure of mammon, frivolous parties, popularity, drunkenness and addiction ... empty living.  Her self worth was shaped by her Creator's perception:  she was beautiful. Now lost, her worth is defined by the depraved world around her ... she doesn't know how important she is anymore, she feels worthless, empty, alone. 

But watch the Father, the Son, the Husband call for her.  He loves her oh-so dearly.  If only she would return to Him, He would give her joy.  Broken, despondent, suicidal, the dominoes are in place and the evil one comes - the man-in-black - the father of lies - and schemes to kill the Master's beloved creation.  "You are worthless" he/it tells her.  Two narratives are presented in her life: one from the giver of Truth, and the other from the father or lies.  Seek the Truth and it will set you free.

Cast all your anxiety on Him, for He cares for you (1 Peter 5:7 NIV)

Strive for the Father and He will strive for you.  Call Him, seek Him, demand Him in your life.  He is all that matters.  A treasure of endless worth.

What joy to see her return to her first Love, her true Love, her only Love.  She claws and fights to return to Him, while the world claws and fights to stop her ... and suddenly, by turning to Jesus, she is blanketed by His impenetrable embrace and finds peace - true ... lasting ... joyous ... peace.  She is loved and remembers she is beautiful:  a child of God in her heavenly Father's embrace.  Praise God!!

Then Jesus said, "Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. (NLT: Matthew 11:28)
