Stay Tuned-God is working to fix your pain!

“God is your refuge and strength, He is a very present help in times of trouble and need”-Psalm 46:1

The world we live in is changing every day. It is so incredibly easy to become dragged down and depressed by everyday life and everyday circumstances. It can sometimes seem like you don’t get through going through one thing before you have to go through something else. It’s already enough that you have to deal with your own problems, your business problems, your family’s problems & your job problems but you also have to deal with the world’s problems. If you’ve ever watched the news or listened to the radio you know of the depressing and unsettling information that you can hear if you stay tuned to it long enough. It can all really be too much!

It is no wonder that at times you can sometimes feel overwhelmed, lost, depressed and just plain down in the dumps. Entertaining the demons of depressions does not have to be your lot in life; help is available to you if you will ask. All you have to do is ask God through prayer to help you! God listens to your prayers and determines what He feels is the best way to respond to your troubles. His answers are in accordance to His plans and His purposes for your life. Sometimes when God tarries and doesn’t seem to be answering your prayers, typically this means that the answer is either “no” or “not yet”

You can begin to lose yourself and forget who you really are, when you are struggling so much and just trying to get through it all, it doesn’t have to be that way. God wants to give you a way of escape! To get God’s plan of escape from your problems, pick a quiet place that you can be alone with God. Bring Him all of your problems, your anxieties and your struggles. Pour your heart out to Him, grab your Bible and find any scriptures that you can hold on to so that you can claim those scriptures as you continue to wait upon God to move or wait upon God to come through for you! As you pray ask God for the strength to face something that is bothering you, or you may want to ask for a solution to a personal problem, or to be pointed in the right direction for an answer. You may have tried repeatedly and failed to get anywhere as you seek to follow God for a better life so asking God to give you a solution is a wonderful alternative that will get you results eventually.

Do not expect instant results when you pray to God, instead give God the time He needs to work your pain out in the way He feels is best!  God works in His own time and on His schedule, He will work to sustain you as you wait upon Him to move or come through for you!  Another thing to bear in mind is that your problems may not be resolved in the manner you had anticipated, but in the way God feels is best. God wants to help you change your life so you can go on, but doing so often requires that you let go of all of the broken pieces of your life and all of the broken pieces of the world that surrounds you and then continue to wait for God’s perfect solutions to your problems. God’s hands are open and He is ready to receive the broken pieces of your life. He wants to help you with all of your problems! Are you truly ready to let Go and let God work things out in your life the way that He wants to?

If you are, join us in this simple prayer;
Dear God, I give you the broken pieces of my life and ask you to fix them for me. I’ve been lured into the dark room by the devil with my problems and I need your help and your solutions to get back on the right track again. Strengthen me again father, fill me with your love and your joy and lead me to the better plans and purposes that you have for me, in Jesus’s name I ask and pray. – Amen.
