I have recently met several people who seem to be bogged down with life. They believe that every time they turn a corner another obstacle comes out of nowhere and hits them in the face. One said he got a small raise and shortly after cashing his check his car transmission went out. Another said he planned a vacation with his family, purchased the tickets, and one week before they were scheduled to leave he got a call that His mother was being placed in hospice and would probably only live a couple of weeks.
“Why me Lord? Why now?” These are common words we say when things don’t seem to go our way. It’s easy to have a pity party and blame God for everything going wrong in our lives. It’s easy during those times to forget that God allows things to happen for a reason and sometimes we may not understand. Where can we go when we are going through these obstacles? Where can we turn when we can’t see beyond the pain?
Always go to the Word of God. It is only there that you can find comfort, direction, healing and strength for your mind, body and soul.
When you feel like you are at the end of your rope, consider reading these verses to be reminded that God is always in control. Our Lord never leaves you and He promises He will never put on you more than you can bear. Then you can have a daily pick me up and go out and share that message of hope with someone else. Remember God loves you and He’s only a prayer away.
