Do you ever feel like “it’s always something?” Something to get over, something is broken, something is wrong, someone is acting a fool, something has caused you unspeakable pain? It’s true, it is always something! Real life happens and we have these tragedies that try to take us out. We have things happen that are unimaginable. Your husband is cheating on you or beating on you and you can’t see an end to the pain. Your children or spouse is on drugs and bringing turmoil to your family and nothing seems to help, not even prayer. You lose your job or your spouse does and now you have bills and bill collectors climbing up your back. Maybe a loved one is overtaken with some long term terminal illness and it seems as if your prayers are unanswered. Maybe there is a death of a loved one. Maybe your on drugs and can’t see an end. Maybe your a molester or an abuser?
Just like it’s always something happening in your life to destroy you, there is something to help you, to keep you strong, to build you up where your torn down, to heal your pain, to ease your struggle, to calm the raging storm. I call him Emmanuel, God with us!
“The virgin will be pregnant and will give birth to a son. They will name him Immanuel.” (Immanuel means “God with us.”) (Matthew 1:23 ERV)
Trust God has made a way for you to escape your situation. You may not know how to pray or how to find scripture in the bible. You don’t feel as if you can trust anyone with your secrets (good idea), but you got knees, get down on them and ask God to be with you. Ask Jesus to save you and he will. He will provide everything you need, every step of the way you will be covered.
Remember, I commanded you to be strong and brave. Don’t be afraid, because the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:9 ERV)
