I know of a few friends, who also are struggling right now in their lives. I wonder at times what is the answer for each of them? What is the right answer for me, since I have been struggling so bad lately also?
What are the right words to say?
The truth is...I really do know what the answer is for them ...and even for myself. It is an answer that has been around for thousand of years, and they are in the scriptures. I am not sure why I try so hard to find answers somewhere else.
These are the words of Christ and I know they are true, and that my life is better when I not only know His words... but follow and obey them. Too simple? To most problems there is usually a simple answer...it's just all the emotional part of the problem that makes things complicated and complex.
Here are the scriptures that I have marked and continue to go back to in the Bible for comfort, support, direction and peace! Things that I can't seem to find in the world around me. I won't mention all of them but these are a few at the top of my list! And like anything else... you don't have to take my word for it, pray about it for yourself ( James 1: 5-6 ) and see if His peace and light don't make you feel better right away
John 14:27 The peace that Christ is talking about is the type of peace that helps us not only through the dark valleys of worry and pain, but also through dimly lit passages of our daily lives.
John 13: 34-35 We need to remember to show love on a daily basis to those around us.
John 12:35-37 Jesus Christ is the light. I love the analogy that He gives about Himself being the light and how that light will guide us. I also think it is important to remember that "Seeing is not believing, but believing is seeing" That is so true. Because of my believes, I see the world in a different and better way for me! I am grateful for that Light that Christ offers me ( us ).
Matthew 11:28-30 The Savior helps us with our burdens, shares the load, does not take them away but helps to make us stronger so our load will be lighter and easier to bear. It is vital that we come unto Him. He is waiting but we have to come and ask for help, light and strength.
Revelations 21: 3-4 No matter what happens in our lives...one day the Lord will make it right and wipe away our tears!
So no matter what...let's start this New Year off right...with much faith, hope, courage and peace.
Good night dear friends and Happy New Year!
This wish is for all of you out there...!
