JUST SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT: You can’t complain about your life… What it looks like, what you’ve lost, the ups, and the downs… And get mad when no one is there for you. Because people will only try so many times to be there for you. They will only take that door slamming in their face but so much. Yes it sucks! But we are human too! You can only take so much hurt & hate before you walk the other way.
So STOP pushing people away! And when someone offers even the littlest act of kindness… Be grateful, and say thank you. Because no matter your hurt… Others are hurting too. We all have our own walk in life. NOT all of us openly share our crazy journeys in life with those we meet.
Have faith, pray, allow God to pull you through, and remember that you have people around… You just have to tell us what you need.
And even if you are angry with God… Tell him! Scream it! Tell him how hurt and mad you are. God made us to need him. He wants us to know that we have that right to be upset. After all God is the one who made us. He gave us these emotions… It’s only right for us to express when we feel those emotions with him. He won’t turn away from you. But in fact he will embrace you. And comfort you. He will pull you through those dark nights. He will show you the doors he has left unlocked. And if you’re to weak, sorrow has taken hold to tight… All you have to do is cry out! Tell him you can’t do it. And he will pick you up… And carry you to the next step.
So… Have faith. Talk to him. Maybe he made you lose it all… So you could see it is GOD you only need. TRUST YOUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST is pulling you closer to him… So he can give you something bigger & better.
Yes, you may think I ‘had’ it good. I was happy. He (God) took it all away. But the thing is… God knows what he is doing, why he is doing it, and in his own time he will show us the whys.
Trust me I was once there. I may not have had it that bad. But I’ve been angry with God. In fact there are still days and moments I want to scream and still do at God. That’s what God wants. He wants a relationship with you. He wants you to confide in him. Think about it though… You can scream at your Mom and Dad and be so angry at something they did or made you do. But then once things calm down you still love your Mom and Dad… Do you not? Well why can’t you be like that with God ??? He is after all your heavenly Father! He knows you better than anyone. So be upset. Share in sorrow, pain, anger, laughter, joys, good times, and bad times. That’s all God wants. That relationship with you.
So be brave and start that relationship. And when it gets to hard, sorrow is holding on to tight. Remember cry out to him. He like your Daddy when you were little will pick you up and help you to the next step. He is your Heavenly Father. He loves you!
Jeremiah 29:11-13 New International Version (NIV)
11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
