How many mornings have rolled out of bed and the first thing you do is start to worry about issues that just will not go away? You cannot get around the fact that this or that issue has not been resolved and it just drives you insane!

Why not make your first thought something like, “God has blessed me with this day and He will provide, guide, and support me through any and all situations that arise. He is my Father and I am His child and He will never leave or forsake me.”

We all have our ups and downs, but I have found that when you do not worry and let God have full control over the situation, the problem will take care of itself. Christ said in John 14:6, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”

So with that in mind, Jesus proclaims that He is the only way to the Father, the only way to Heaven, the only truth, the only way to peace in your life, and the only way to climb out of any struggle you are caught up in. That is reassuring to know that you have a Creator, Mentor, Father, and Best Friend that will walk with you each step of your life.

I find many times that when I start to doubt, that is when things start to get worse for myself. I have banged my head on the mantle of my life so many times, I should be unrecognizable by now. God allows us to struggle at times because it turns our focus towards Him.

We should always focus on God, but as human beings and the billions of distractions that are thrown at us everyday, it can be very difficult. I just know that any and every time I start to lose sight of Christ and His glory, he puts me in my place and lets me endure a hardship that makes me run back to Him flailing my arms and screaming like a little girl 🙂 .

That is the beauty of the love of Christ. No matter how many times we screw up, backslide, or do something stupid, He is always right behind us waiting for us to fall into his loving arms. God knows that we will falter, even before we do so, but He knows our hearts and yearning to become better for the body of Christ as a whole.

God tells us to use the gifts that He has given us and I know that I have wasted so much time not using mine. I am going to change that because I feel that God should not reward someone who is neglecting the gifts given to them. That has been my problem for so long now. I’ve been afraid to use what God has given me to glorify and spread His kingdom. How stupid and selfish am I?

I just know that I love Christ with everything within me. I just want my attitude, persona, and mind to follow to that accord. I have seen many valleys, struggles, (what have you in my time) and God has always, ALWAYS given me a way out.

If you are struggling, hurting, or needing guidance – PRAY. Talk to God as your best friend, as your Father. He already knows what you need, He is just waiting for you to ask for it. Just remember that He will do things in His time, not ours.

We must keep Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior first in our lives. Then He will show us the way out of any struggle that we endure.
