“God judges the secrets of men by Christ Jesus“ – Romans 2:16.

Do you have any secrets? For sure you have. Because each of us has some stories hidden deep inside. It is not wrong to have such secrets. Yet, it is important to allow God to judge your stories. He is not a judge without mercy. But, he is a merciful one who wants to help you face your stories. 

God the Father sends his beloved Son to be with you in all your circumstances. Especially in those moments of your life which are the most painful. It could happen that you keep your wounds far from the divine Medician. You don't need to share them with anyone. But Apostle Paul invites you to let the Son of God touch your scars. 

Don't be afraid. He knows how to cure you. You need to make such a step if you desire to live a peaceful and joyful life. Otherwise, you will always feel sad and depression will be waiting at your door.  

It is not a problem that you committed awful sins. Trust in the Divine Mercy. It is not a big issue that you have bad experiences. Almost everyone has to go through painful situations. Go to Jesus Christ. Embrace his cross and tell him everything. God the Father wrote the divine law in your heart. It is the law of love. So do not be a prisoner of hatred but witness of God's love. Yes, you are a beloved child of the heavenly Father.
