Give Your Problems to God
Tragedies, Disease, Divorce…
Tragedies strike. Diseases take our loved ones. Marriages struggle. Careers fail. Accidents happen. Loss comes. These unforeseen catastrophes turn our world upside down. The hurt builds up inside of us, the pain stings. We wake up and we try to press forward, but our mind is stuck on rewind. We keep going back, pausing on the moments we long to have again. We try to manage the settings of our emotions and grief.
Questions haunt our thoughts and sorrow manipulates our minds. The grief comes suddenly, but doesn’t go away. We try to find hope, to let go and move on, but waves of disbelief and heartbreak keep crashing down on us. Sadness drowns us and the painful tides have brought us out too far. But just when we lose sight of the shore, God throws us a lifeline. He preserves us, reeling us back in with ripples of grace and currents of love.
Problems can bring us to the darkest parts of ourselves, the weakest places in our lives, but if you give your problems to God, He will deliver you. He will rescue you in your greatest need.
A Challenge For You…
What problems are you facing? Have you prayed about them as much as you’ve complained about them? Have you relied on God to help you through them? It is easy to focus on the bad things that are happening in our lives, but have you outweighed them with the good? Read Isaiah 41:10 and Philippians 4:6-8. Find strength in knowing that God can resolve anything, and He is here to help you through whatever problem you are facing.
