So, who can we turn to when things get really tough? Who do you give your pain too? Who listens and never gets tired of listening? When our burdens get more than we can carry, who do we turn them over to? Jesus, that’s who. And having a relationship with Him sure helps you to turn to Him faster when things get tough.
I used to think, “Have a relationship with Jesus? What do you mean by that? I have always believed, is that what you mean?”
To find out the answers to those questions, I did a LOT of Christian reading.
Not every book or video touches your soul. You need to find the right speaker/author. So, I encourage everyone out there to do a bit of research. Give a few authors/speakers a try. Here are a few to check out:
- Jan Karon
- Sarah Young
- Stormie Omartian
- Karen Kingsbury
- Richard Paul Evans
- Joseph Girzone
- Rick Warren
- Matthew Kelly
- Joyce Meyers
- Norman Vincent Peale
- Max Lucado
- And The Bible of course
Thank you God, thank you Jesus, thank you Holy Spirit. I thank you, I praise you. I am grateful for your time and attention. I couldn’t have continued without your love and support.
Just two examples of life’s struggles:
Spring, 2015 my dad became ill and ended up in assisted living. If you have ever had a parent who has had to go through this, you know how painful it is for the family, how time consuming it can be.
Fall of 2016, that last back injury was almost more than I could handle. Thanks Lord for your healing power. It has taken over a year to heal and in many ways I am still healing….but am now physically healthier than I have been in a long time.
Then on top of all that, I have had friends and family members struggling with cancer.
Can you get through life’s struggles without Him? I can’t.
