I wrote this awhile back on my Facebook but I felt it needed to be posted here as well.
When we choose to live without God we fear everything.
We fear losing our jobs, our relationships ending, not being able to pay our bills, and not being able to provide for our families. These fears consume us and so we get stressed out, become angry and depressed. We try to make ourselves feel better by shopping, drinking, and or self-medicating. Whatever gets you through the day, right?
Here’s a better way to get you through.
Ask Jesus to come into your heart and be sincere when you do. Cry out and give Him your troubles. Let Him carry that burden.
So, I tell you, don’t worry about everyday life- whether you have enough food, drink, and clothes. Doesn’t life consist of more than food and clothing?
Trust in The Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek His will in all you do, and He will direct your paths.
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.
We put ourselves through so much unneeded stress and curse God when times are hard. We curse each other as well. We act like so many are against us and making our lives miserable. It is all in how you look at it. If you start your day thinking negatively, your day will be filled with nothing but that. When you have Jesus in your heart and you walk with Christ you don’t start your day thinking negative thoughts; you praise Jesus for another day of breathing and being alive. When you have Him in your life and live for Him 100% your fears become hope and faith. You know that He will take care of you and He will provide all that you need.
