Miley Cyrus is a person I didn't want to blog about - because too many people were and the poor girl has been absolutely slandered by Christians and non-Christians alike.... But after watching her 'Wrecking Ball' video I just have to say...
My heart hurts for her.
This isn't a debate about poor choices or growing up or being a bad role model.... This is a call for Christians to pray for her. Not against her...
Stop gossiping about her and start doing the one thing we can - pray for her.
When I see her, I see a cry for help. I see a scared, vulnerable girl who has been fed way too many lies and gotten involved in things that would bring any person to breaking point.
I know it's not cool to think a celebrity is 'imperfect' or 'broken,' but newsflash - she is just as broken as the rest of us. No, not all of us will play our brokenness across TV and computer screens - not all of us will show our brokenness by making out with objects, and swinging naked on a wrecking ball - but we are all still broken.
That's why we have a Savior.
And the same Jesus that loves us and rescues us, loves Miley Cyrus and wants to rescue her.
Friends, try to see past the obvious... Let of your anger, put down your stones, and pray.
Miley is not some evil person come to ruin your children's lives.... She is a young girl who is battling things we will never know about - and more than she needs hate - she needs love.
Love covers a multitude of sins... Love makes a way where there is no way... Love heals the broken hearted... Love saves.
Pray for miracles. Pray for divine intervention. Pray that God brings the right people into her life who can tell her the Good News - that she is never too far gone for Jesus. Because that is our reality - NO ONE is ever too far gone for our Savior.
