It seems like every time we turn around something happens that upsets us. We get angry, disgusted, despondent and at times depressed. And here goes the, “OH Woe Is Me.” It’s been said that if you look around, there is someone close by that is worse off that we are.
I CRY BECAUSE:
My child is not perfect–Then I see where someone lost their child.
My house/apartment is too small–Then I see a homeless person
I have no shoes–Then I see a person with no feet/legs
I am not perfect–Then I see someone is in prison
I have aches and pains–Then I see where someone died
There are times when things get bad enough that we think that not even God cares. The adversity in our lives overwhelms us. If you get to the point where you think God doesn’t care, look at the story of Job. Even though he had lost everything and was covered from head to toe in sores, he never turned on God or his faith. God eventually returned Job to his health and his wealth. God cared about Job just as he cares for you and me. The scriptures tell us that God will comfort us in our afflictions, if we will only draw close with confidence.
It doesn’t matter how bad things seem. if we stay close to Him, nothing can separate us from God’s love. Cast your burdens and anxieties on the Lord. He will NOT forsake you. Blessed is the man who endures his trials and tribulations and stays steadfast in the Lord. TRULY HE IS HAPPY!!
We need to be thankful for what we are given by God, not discouraged by what God has not given us. SMILE God loves YOU!!
