He knows you need help

25 09 2006

Things don’t always work out the way we want them to, or the way we think they will. Sometimes we don’t even see it coming. We get hit with some form of pain out of nowhere leaving us feeling desperate and helpless.

That’s the way life is.

Still, it makes us wonder how God can let these things happen to us. How God can just stand by and watch us suffer. Where is God when it really hurts? Maybe God is actually closer to us than we think. Maybe it’s when we’re in these situations, where everything seems to be falling apart, that God gets an opportunity to remind us of how much he really loves us. He knows that you are in pain and he gives you courage to go through the tough times.

God says these amazing things like, “When you cry out to me, I listen”. I mean he even says, “I cannot ignore the cries of those who are afflicted”. The Psalms speak over and over about crying. About Crying out to god.

People still don’t understand. There is a false, and a twisted idea among the religious people that somehow you have to have it all together to have a relationship with god. NO. Why do we do this? I mean god says to us, ‘When you come to me, come to me with all your junk, come to me with all your problems, come to me all screwed up, all messed up, and let me take care of it’.

Ask yourself this question: When you are going through a really hard times and everything seems so…hopeless do you still trust that God knows the way and that you are going to make it?

“May you, when soaking wet, lost, hurting, and confused, may you cry out and may the creator of the universe take you out of your pack, may he hold you tight up against his chest, may he wrap his internal loving arms arms around you, and may you hear him whisper…

I love you”
