What do you do when you are broken, mentally exhausted, and feel defeated? Sometimes I am so worried, so anxious, so hurt that I sometimes can’t think beyond a couple words. I need to cry out and allow myself to let some of my emotions out.
Not long ago, I had a moment like this.
I curled up on my bed and just kept repeating-
The Lord my God is my savior.
Over and over. When I feel like this, nothing helps. Not talking to a friend or eating ice cream. The only thing that ever makes me feel like there is hope, is repeating these words to myself over and over. Because God is hope and sometimes He is all you got, and that is enough to get you through whatever you are going through.
A lot of people see Christians and believe that we chose the easy life. That we haven’t had any hardships and that is why it is so “easy” to believe in God.
It is actually quite the opposite. Beliving in God and living our lives trying to imitate Jesus, is very very hard. It would be extremely easier to forgo everything we know about the bible and live a life ignoring our sin.
Choosing to live your life for Him is not easy. God tests you and put you through trials, but that is the beauty of faith. I know in my heart that no matter what I am going through, God will pull me out of the situation I am in and make me a stronger and better person because of it. He is good.
Jesus did not come to earth and claim that we would live an easy life. He came to spread his glory throughout the world, and to tell us that we are living in sin and we will never be able to handle the hardships of this world on our own.
But with God, we can handle anything. Because He is the Almighty, the Great I Am, the Redeemer, the King of Kings.
So when you are on the floor, crying out because you are hurting, find comfort in the great love of our God.
