In a world with political battles, sickness, suffering, trials and tribulations, upsets, setbacks, and downfalls, it is so easy to become discouraged and feel an overwhelming sense of hopelessness. A feeling of hopelessness that things will get better. Hopeless that a solution will be found for the problem. Hopeless that some type of relief will actually come and lift the burden.
Some time ago, I was at a low point in my life. I experienced a highly stressful challenging on the job situation and became very discouraged and hopeless about the outcome. In an attempt to bring some relief, I fully depended on others to understand and help. In an attempt to bring some resolve, I began fully began trusting and putting all of my faith in others to make a difference.
And although I believe wonderful caring people are brought into our lives to support and help us through our ups and downs, the major mistake I made was putting ALL of my hope and trust into people rather than God. I was solely depending on others rather than God. I solely trusted others and totally forgot about God. I put my hope and faith in others and forgot to rely on the power of the Holy Spirit. NO WONDER THINGS WEREN'T GETTING BETTER!!!
It wasn't until I shifted my focus from people and back to God that I began to see a change. It wasn't until I took the hope and faith that I gave to others and decided to give it back to God that relief came my way. So if you are at a low point in your life, facing an overwhelming situation, or feel like your burden is more than you can handle, remember to put your hope and trust in God and root your faith in Christ, The Solid Rock. Stand firm in your faith and welcome in the Holy Spirit to move in your life. Amen
Wear your faith and help uplift others
