06 Feb If Only
John 4:39 “He told me everything I ever did.”
The woman at the well was labeled from her past.
I suspect this woman had been suffering from the “If Only” disease; the questioning of her life that causes her ‘dis’ (the absence or reversal of) ‘ease’ (freedom). “If only I hadn’t made that wrong decision;” “if only I had married a man who found value in me;” “if only my children would show me respect;” “if only my parents were different;” if only… if only… if only.
Focus on the flawed people in the Bible who called Jesus a friend. He never sought perfect people, only people willing to follow a perfect Savior. Let’s make a promise to ourselves today to never use the words “if only” again.
