Sometimes we look for life's answers in all the wrong places. We turn to friends for advice, our parents for guidance we even read magazines, social media and listen to music in search of finding the answers to our problems. I can say first hand that none of those options have worked for me. Now don't get me wrong, I don't completely ignore thoughts shared with me from friends and my parents raised me to be the person I am today but sometimes there's more that we're just not getting or seeing.
Ever wonder why so many people are walking around depressed, stressed and have no direction in life? Most of the time its because we don't know who we are. We get to a certain age and our parents tell us its time to be an adult and face the world but we have no idea what that means. I didn't leave my moms house till I was 26 and even then I had no idea what I would be facing. We get out into the world and we're hit with all these obstacles and don't know how to handle them. We make mistake after mistake and try to find things to help us cope with the pressure of everyday life and still nothing works. Then it gets to the point where we give in to the pressure of life or let it pull us under.
I think we all get to that point where enough is enough and its too much to bare, but how hard do you really have to fall before you make a change? Or as my Apostle would say "when will you be sick and tired of being sick and tired"? We all go through things even those of us who are saved and know the Lord, but it's that relationship with Jesus Christ that helps us get through those tough times. I use to think just having good morals and knowing right from wrong was enough to get me through life. But when I hit those bumpy roads and made wrong decisions I didn't know what to do or how to get through it. A lot of us become numb to the world around us and often feel like this is just how life is suppose to be. But God promised us so much more. Jesus Christ died to deliver us from any misfortunes in our lives, he died so we don't have to walk around carrying all the pain, stress & burdens of life he took all of that away from us.
The way my life has turned around I would have never imaged Id be where I'm at today and I can honestly say I wouldn't have gotten this far on my own. If I had not given my life to Christ when I did I don't know where id be right now.
