A Place Called Here

by Carla Cannon

Have you ever found yourself in a place and began to look around wondering or even thinking to yourself, “How did I end up…here”? Your “here” may be an abusive relationship or a bad decision that left you pregnant and your child fatherless. Or perhaps you did save yourself for your husband only to have him cheat on you and bring home a three letter word that has now flipped your entire life upside down. Perhaps you currently find yourself in a place where it appears so surreal therefore you try to sleep your life away, praying you are only having a bad dream only to wake up and realize what you are experiencing is indeed reality. No matter where you may currently find yourself, you must know there is a way out and His name is Jesus. 

Maybe you have never heard of Him, so please allow me time for a brief introduction. Jesus is one who died on a cross for all humanity, was bruised for our iniquities when He personally knew no sin. Not only was he beaten and spat on, but He also endured having his hands nailed to a cross just so you and I could live again. So, yes He died on a cross, but on the third day He arose with all power in His hands. 

He is known for performing many miracles such as causing blind eyes to see, feeding 5,000 people with only two fish and five loaves of bread and still having a few baskets left over. 

See Jesus was no ordinary man although many referred to him as the carpenter’s son, but He is the great I AM. He is the Alpha and Omega and He is the only one who can take all of our sins, regrets and areas in which we have fallen short in and allow them to all work for our good, while in the process also forgiving us and freeing us from each of them. 

See, you didn’t accidently end up at this place called “here” but you were strategically placed by God to allow Him the opportunity to prove to you who He really is in your life. You must understand God can do absolutely anything and He makes no mistakes. If He can allow Peter to walk on water, then surely He can snatch you up out of any situation you may find yourself in. 

So, arise my sister from this place called “here” for this was never your destined place and you have been here far too long. God has amazing plans for your life which you know not of because sometimes we can’t see further than where we are but that is where true faith comes in effect. No longer shall you be bound in depression, low self-esteem, poor self- image, homosexuality, or anything else that has tried to hold you captive. Be free on today and know that your change is not coming but it is already here!

Destiny is calling you my sister….but the question is will you answer? 

You have officially been pulled out of a place that once had you bound. So now you are free to depart from this place called……HERE.
