As I read my devotional this morning, I realized it was my story as well. This just goes to show that no matter what we go through, we are not alone. Someone has experienced the same pain, loss, hurt, discouragement as you are going through in this very moment, so don’t allow yourself to become so overwhelmed during the trial that you lose hope for your future. You will get through it, and you’ll be able to help someone else as they go through their life issues because you made it (testify).
Romans 8:28. ” And we know, all things work together for the good of them who love God, and are the called according to His purpose”.
It’s the Holidays, and so many of us are dealing with self induced problems. So often we can’t find our way out of situations we’ve gotten ourselves into. In the midst of those problems, we’ve all probably said, “I don’t know what else I can do”. Well, Gods Word says, “Apart from Me, you can do nothing” (John 15:5). Just as a parent desires to keep their child from life’s pitfalls, hurts and pains, our Heavenly Father desires the same for us. We are His workmanship, created in His image. Why not allow the Creator to work out or to work on that situation that seems beyond your control. Just as any parent does, God simply wants your faithfulness and your obedience.
His Word says, “If you remain in Me, and My Word remains in you, you can ask whatever you wish and it shall be done for you” (John 15:7) NIV.
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13
My daughter posted something on Facebook today that I feel so strongly about so, I’m sharing it with you today. She is a Christian counselor, but it doesn’t take education, only common sense and a deep breath before you act erratically
