Maybe It’s Just Me
We all know this life is full of ups and downs. One moment you feel on top of things. The next minute things feel on top of you. Presently it just feels like there’s a dark cloud hovering over this world. Maybe it’s just what I’m feeling in my soul.
Now, I don’t think things just suddenly got this way. American values have been spiraling downhill for quite sometime. No, I’m not talking about what’s going on in the White House. Im talking about things in my house, your house and even inside the school house.
I’m afraid the average American has turned their back on God. Sure, many reference the words “In God We Trust.” But, does it really count when someone’s heart is so far from meaning those words. You see, to trust God is much more than a few words.
It’s saying God I surrender all. Please forgive me of my sin and selfishness. Take my heart and lead my life. I believe your son Jesus paid it all for me on that cross and even overcame the grave. Be my salvation, my stronghold, and my reason for living every breath.
Then, somehow God lavishes us with His grace and healing. Hope becomes more than a word. It becomes a certainty in our heart no matter what life brings. By grace through faith in Christ alone. We find forgiveness of sin, eternal security in Heaven and a hope that can’t be taken away.
Maybe it’s time for America to spiritually wake up. Get down on your knees. Let God take you over. Trust God with all your heart, soul, and situation. Worry alone will change nothing. Giving things completely over to God can change everything.
“If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14
