And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins.
There was a time in my walk with Jesus when my heart turned away from Him. It felt like I was in a deep pit that I couldn’t pull myself out of. I desired the things of the world more than I desired God, and I struggled greatly with sins like unforgiveness and lust to name a few. It was even difficult to go a short time without some evil thoughts passing through my mind. I was very overwhelmed by my sin, and it felt that no matter how hard I tried I could not turn away from it. During that time satan would bring thoughts like “You won”t change.” Or, “God doesn’t hear your prayers, why bother?” Or, “God doesn’t really care about you.” Well, Jesus Christ is faithful because in His timing He brought me out of that dark pit of sin and restored me. He turned my heart back to Him and removed my unforgiving and lustful ways. He also gave me more joy and peace than I ever had before.
You might feel like you are too far from God to come back, but He is very merciful and willing to forgive you. I can testify that no matter how deep you are in sin, Jesus Christ can pull you out of it and make you into a new person if you are willing to let your sin go. God has the power to draw you out of any evil that you may be entangled in.
