Believe in God, believe also in Me…
Jesus told them “Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me.” John 14:1 (NASB) God is a God of hope. And, He works miracles, He helps us along, and shows us the way through what we face in life. There are so many things that can get to us. Things like…
- Guilt, shame, and regret.
- Wishing you were somewhere else in life.
- Wishing you had made different decisions.
- Disappointment in relationships.
- Social anxiety and nervousness.
- Troubles at work.
- Having a health problem.
- Having a hard time making ends meet financially.
- A sense of meaninglessness.
And the list goes on. It can be a mess. These things are real. For me, a number of circumstances came together almost five years ago and brought me to the lowest point in my life. And I made it through – only because of my relationship with God.
I am amazed at times when I have moments of clarity and realize that it is so much about Him, and so little about me, that I live and exist only because He wills it so, much yet attempting to work out my faith and trying to do anything for Him, like ministry.
Your life will never be perfect this side of eternity. But, your life will never be better than when you are seeking a deeper and growing relationship with God, knowing God, depending on Him, looking to Him, running to Him…
