We all have cracks in the histories of our lives—choices or moments we wish we could erase; things we said or did that we wish we could take back. These can keep us up at night fearing that someone will find out. But instead of beating ourselves up emotionally, we need to accept the reality of Romans 3:23: “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”

In this sin-filled world, we all receive and create these cracks. It’s what we do next that makes or breaks us. If we can hide or minimize the cracks in our lives, we might assume that ours are smaller than someone else’s, so we feel okay. This is just a lie of the enemy, focusing us on other people’s flaws and avoiding responsibility for our own. On the other hand, we might wallow in negativity, assuming that everyone is thinking that we’re a failure. This focus on ourselves wastes our God-given time and energy.
This question plagues many: “Could anyone know my deepest, darkest hidden secrets and still love and accept me?”

The answer is YES! There is someone who already knows all your mistakes, hidden thoughts and fears and yet loves you more than you can imagine. An old hymn says, “This is my story this is my song, praising my Savior all the day long!”

Embrace your story. Walk confidently toward Jesus, the Light, and the cracks in your life will fade into the shadows. He who has begun a good work in you will complete it. Your God meets you in the valleys, but He does not leave you there.
