When Life Seems to Unbearable
I want to share today about life when it seems too unbearable because you should realize that through faith and belief in Jesus, you can overcome any obstacle. When you believe and call Jesus your Lord, there is an endless supply of help stored for you in God’s vault of treasures.
The last few weeks have been very trying for me, with the move, building our new home, and learning the area, I hardly have any time to write, but I know soon life shall even itself out. I will be back to writing and finish book one of my fantasy series.
Nevertheless, while adapting to the change in my circumstances, I feel God’s loving touch holding me up, encouraging me to go on. He even puts small unexpected events in my path that make me smile and gives me so much joy and hope, blocking out discouraging thoughts. I thank God that I am His child and He loves me because although satan whispers in my ears that this genuinely wonderful blessing and the change that goes along with it is too complicated, God’s great love gives me comfort and holds me up.
Through Jesus, you and I received the greatest gift possible, the father’s love, grace, mercy, and blessings. When we understand this, we can look beyond any situation in our life and truly appreciate the fact that the negative does not last forever. We also have passage to the Holy Father God directly, and the wonder of it all is that we don’t need any priest, pastor, bishop, or pope to speak to God for us. Jesus paid the ultimate price, and no other is required.
Ephesians 2:13-15 (KJV) “But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. 14 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace.”
When we keep this in mind, we understand that we can approach father God in peace knowing that He loves us, hears our prayers, wants to bless us, and wants us to keep going.
I always understood, as most who attend religious institutions, that Jesus died for my sins, but over the years, I have grown in my knowledge of God. With the help of the fabulous Holy Spirit, I know now that He died not only for my sins but also so I can experience the love of God and have an abundant life. I can overcome all the bad the thief (satan) of this world sets in my path to hurt and cause me pain.
John 10:10 (KJV) 10 “… I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. 11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.”
I know that each person has their private problems, or turbulence that they carry because of the harsh world that we inhabit. It could be sickness, debt, loss of loved ones, depressions, struggling to reach dreams, and other situations. There are so many ills that we are subject to as earthly being cause satan is the god of this world and he does not like us,
One thing we can always count on, regardless of how much turmoil the devil tries to put in our paths is that God is love. God wants to help with the problem and will encourage us to keep going and don’t give up if we listen to the small voice of the Holy Spirit. However, we must ask for his help and trust that He is there regardless of how it appears.
Psalm 91 1-7 (KJV) “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. 3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. 4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. 5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; 6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. 7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.”
I talk to God as a friend; he already knows what I am going through better than I do. When I mess up, I ask for his forgiveness and strength to overcome my faults. I cannot let my circumstances defeat me, and I hope that you will not either. In the end, nothing will matter but our eternal salvation.
Today, if we can trust in Him the Holy Spirit will help us live a victorious life, and to all my precious readers I want to say, let your faith in God keep you going. Do not quit regardless of what things look like. Remember the gift of Jesus and hold on to your confidence in him.
Hebrews 4:16 “Let us, therefore, come body unto the temple of grace that we may obtain Mercy, and find Grace to help in the time of need.”
