There are so many times when we try to manage our lives and all the difficulties we face. When we seem unable to find a solution, , we turn to God for help. Maybe we should just do that in the first place. It seems to me that it would save a lot of angst and knots in the stomach. We can’t solve every problem that comes our way, even though God gives us common sense and brain power. We become stubborn, in a way, because we feel like we should be able to solve the problem alone.

There are things that go beyond our control. There are health issues that seem to have no solution. There are relationship problems that are one sided or unyielding. There are financial problems that make us feel oppressed or downfallen. When things get to that point, we logically turn to God for help. However, the solution doesn’t always show up right away. What we truly need to know is that no matter what happens to us, God is with us all the way. He is there for us. He hears us. He knows our needs even before we do. He loves us unconditionally. He has our best interests in mind in all things. He will not give us more than we can handle. Even with those truths in mind, it isn’t easy for us to let go of the reins. The dilemma than becomes even more difficult. Add to all that, we have an adversary who is trying desperately to win control over our souls. The devil never sleeps. He is like a lion on the prowl and will stop at nothing to mess with our heads – causing us to lose sight of the power of God over Him.

Remember that God is faithful. He is our defense in every trouble. He will not leave us. He has already gained the victory over the devil and provides us with everlasting life. As I write this, I am struggling. I know the battle will end and good will come from it, but right now it seems that it will never end. This is when our Christian friends and family can be of much help to us. Their love and prayers are like drops of honey to those who are going through daily trials. Maybe you will be the one to administer that help today. Maybe you are the one who needs it.

Psalm 31:14-16 “But I trust in you, O Lord; I say, “You are my God.” My times are in your hand; rescue me from the hand of my enemies and from my persecutors! Make your face shine on your servant; save me in your steadfast love!”


About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

    Kathy, I had just completed scheduling a post that included the words, “I can’t do this on my own,” when I saw your post. We are on the same wavelength today. 🙂

    I think that we cannot even surrender to God without God’s help. Our sinful pride keeps getting in the way, and only God can strip away that pride and make us truly his. J.

  5. Amen! My wife and I were recently blessed with a loving opportunity to serve family members who needed an extra hand or two. They humbly reached out, and we shared one of our greatest resources as retirees . . . time.
