Why should I run to God just because I am in trouble, I’m not a hypocrite? People are always telling me to trust God, Pray to God, trust in The Lord, lean not to your own understanding, I have real life problems that are not the same as those people in the bible. That stuff happened a long time ago and Jesus is not waking around healing people today. People who go to church are mean, hateful and judgmental. The Pastor is this or that, the church just wants my money. Sound familiar?
I believe what the bible says happened. You may think I’m just someone from Flint who goes to church and is repeating what I have been told. Not so, I am someone from Flint who has many of the same questions and concerns. I was happy with my life (I so wanted that to be true), I was not living a sinful life and I was good to people. I began to realize that all was not good, I was damaged inside from the things of my past and the decisions I had made. I realize that hurt people tend to hurt other people, unknowingly and most if the time unwillingly. Its a known fact that you hurt the ones you love. Yes the people who love you the most and the blood of your blood, flesh of your flesh children. So, are you willing to continue down this path or are you ready for something new?
God hears your cries for relief and is there waiting for you to come to him.
He helps tired people be strong. He gives power to those without it. Young men get tired and need to rest. Even young boys stumble and fall. But those who trust in the Lord will become strong again. They will be like eagles that grow new feathers. They will run and not get weak. They will walk and not get tired. (Isaiah 40:29-31 ERV)
He promised to heal you if you turn to him.
and if my people who are called by my name become humble and pray, and look for me, and turn away from their evil ways, then I will hear them from heaven. I will forgive their sin and heal their land. (2 Chronicles 7:14 ERV)
Try him, you’ve tried everything else but was not satisfied. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
