Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Knowing What It Is To Be Broken
You don't have to go into a prison to find people who are "broken." There's so much pain today, and so much of it is from broken things—broken families, broken health, broken hearts, broken trust. ... It may be even in spite of a life that's reasonably successful and outwardly looks fine.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Hurting And Passed By
Is the world speeding past the hurt that you carry inside? Everybody's in a hurry to get where they're going. Meanwhile, you suffer with that brokenness inside you in a world that doesn't know, or just doesn't care.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Unforgettable You - #5650
The Son of God knew you had forgotten Him. We all have. We've lived most of our life with our back turned to our Creator, doing what we wanted instead of what He wanted. And He knew that, unless He intervened, you would be separated from Him for all eternity. That's the built-in penalty for our sin. But Jesus loves you so much that He left heaven to go to a cross where He took your hell.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - No Lone Rangers - #4430
Actually, there were never meant to be any Lone Rangers. Let's go all the way back to the original Lone Ranger - Adam, the first man God ever created. As the Creation saga unfolds in Genesis 1, the Bible uses a phrase repeatedly to describe how God felt about what He had been created each day - "And God saw that it was good." Genesis 1:31 says, "God saw all that He had made, and it was very good."

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Deepest Cry Of The Human Heart - #4414
I don't know about you, but that cry for love in Mrs. O'Hair's diary touches something inside of me. In a way, her cry is the cry of every human heart, "Somebody, somewhere, love me." And for many who do believe in God, there is still that awful vacuum. It's possible to believe in God, to do God's things, and to still miss the deep experience of His love. And without that love, the emptiness and loneliness in our heart is never satisfied - no matter how many human loves we experience.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Gone So Long, But Home At Last - #4306
And deep down inside the soul of each of us is a longing for home that is hard to explain and even harder to satisfy. There's this spiritual homesickness - you can call it restlessness or incompleteness or just the absence of inner peace. Some who feel like they've never had a home think that they would have peace if they could find a home. But then those who've had a fair amount of love and acceptance are strangely homesick in their soul, too.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Trashing The Treasure - #4329
That was a costly mistake - trashing treasure because of the container it was in. It's a mistake many people are making. Except the treasure is themselves. And maybe we needed to talk about this today because you may be throwing away a treasure - called you.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Trouble with the Top of the Mountain - #4374
I made a simple mistake the day of the dunes. I kept thinking that what I was looking for was just over the next hill. It wasn't. That's a mistake a lot of us have made - with our life. We've kept climbing a mountain that we were sure would bring us what we were looking for once we got to the top. But so far, it never has.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - What Makes You Really Valuable - #4376
If you're trying to do what's right in an environment where most everyone is else is doing what's wrong, you get to feeling kind of lonely sometimes, don't you? And even weird? In fact, the people you work with or play with or go to school with may basically tell you that you're weird because you don't do the things they do. And, after a while, that can start to wear on you and even wear down your resistance. And you get tired of being "weird."

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Born to Fly - #4389
Maybe these words would basically describe how you would size up your life these days: "It's not bad; it's just not enough." Things are going okay. Nothing's melting down. But you're inexplicably, incurably restless. There's never enough love. There's never enough fulfillment - never enough peace. Something's missing.
