Dealing with the Inevitable
“I restore the crushed spirit of the humble and revive the courage of those with repentant hearts.” – Isaiah 57:15 (NLT)
It doesn’t matter what the trouble is or how often it crops up. If you’ve lived for very long, you know that problems are inevitable. It could be something as simple as a flat tire on Monday morning or as perplexing as a rebellious child who seems determined to do the opposite of whatever you tell them to do. That’s where I come in. When you are facing circumstances that seem impossible, what are you going to do? The weight of trying to conquer every problem on your own can ultimately crush you.
What do you think you can do without Me?
Life is too tough—too full of obstacles, unexpected calamities, unforeseen setbacks and overwhelming heartache—to make it on your own. The best news of all, though, is that you don’t have to forge ahead without any help. I specialize in fixing the toughest dilemmas.
You can’t prepare for every situation. Insurance is big business. Americans insure everything imaginable: homes, cars, boats, health, teeth, eyes, life, retirement, protection against disease, pets, and more. Hollywood stars insure their smile; famous singers protect against losing their voice. However, none of these are things that matter most.
The things you can’t prevent. After you think you have covered every expense, think about this: how will you repair a wrecked marriage? How can you fix a split with your brother or sister? How will you restore a broken spirit when a parent, spouse or close friend dies? Life happens. Turn to Me before it throws you for a loop.
