Maybe, today you have reached a breaking point. You feel like you are too far gone to receive help. Or you think that your sickness is too advanced and has been happening for too long and there is nothing that can be done Are you trapped in sickness and depression far too long to be freed? I say to you, there is no sickness that Jesus can’t cure. There is no addiction that Jesus can’t break. There is no soul that is too dirty to be cleansed by the blood of Christ. Jesus is waiting, calling to come to Him. We must hang on to that thread of hope. We must hold on to that mustard seed of faith. There is hope for the helpless, Rest for the weary, Love for the broken heart. There is grace and forgiveness, mercy and healing, He’ll meet you wherever you are, cry out to Jesus. For He says, “Come to Me, you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28)

“And every human heart that breaks, In prison-cell or yard, Is as that broken box that gave Its treasure to the Lord, And filled the unclean leper’s house With the scent of costliest nard.
Ah! happy they whose hearts can break And peace of pardon win! How else may man make straight his plan And cleanse his soul from Sin? How else but through a broken heart May Lord Christ enter in?
And he of the swollen purple throat, And the stark and staring eyes, Waits for the holy hands that took The Thief to Paradise; And a broken and a contrite heart The Lord will not despise.” - Oscar Wilde, The Ballad Of Reading Gaol
