"Cry baby Cry.
Put your finger in your eye,
And tell your mother it wasn't I!"
That Mother Goose had a wicked sense of humor! Maybe just a bit mean....
Sorry. Got distracted this morning from what I meant to write about. Do you have a problem? Is there something dragging you down? Do you feel discontent with life and you don't know why?
I have the solution for you (or at least the beginning of the solution). Here it is:
"'and you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.'" John 8:32
I kind of took this verse out of context but the truth of it still applies. When we don't know what is going on within we need to ask God to reveal to us what the problem is -- what is causing our discontent, what is dragging us down.
When we know the know the why of the problem, the problem can start being dealt with. And God will give you wisdom on how to deal with the problem. Just ask Him for it (James 1:5-6).
Don't be a victim. I think back on my life and know that when I have believed myself to be without help, felt like a victim, believed myself to be a leaf blowing in the wind without anyway to stop that wind, life pretty much sucks. And it can get scary. Very Scary.
But God is bigger than anything and everything. It doesn't matter if you've messed up a zillion times. He will come alongside you and get you through whatever needs to be gotten through and somehow redeem it so that mess-up will be used for great good. And if whatever you're dealing with is horrendous tragedy that too can be used by God. He is the Great Healer. Let Him heal you.
