2015-09-07 - What Would a Christian Say?
Okay, God. Surely You've heard my tears. I've looked to You and not my problems, and still the answer hasn't reached me (yet). Why do I bother? I thought the Scriptures were something to hold onto, to believe infallible.
I lost some of my faith, but I continue to believe Jesus can heal. Other people don't have to suffer like this, why me? What gives?
God, You lead me to Your word and there I found comfort. It told me You have no intention for us to feel miserable. None of God’s children were predestined to be enslaved.
“Their fruit trees and fields will yield bumper crops, and everyone will live in safety. When I have broken off their chains of slavery and delivered them from those who profiteered at their expense, they shall know I am the Lord.” (Ezekiel 34:27 TLB)
For this to be a reality, I have to believe You can intervene and improve my situations. It helps not to be swayed by the events of the day, or words others say. I will do my best to remain unfazed, and to place my confidence in You, Lord above. May I also learn to not base my beliefs on only what my eyes see or my heart feels.
Lord, I give You the things that are missing in life. Please fill the holes with satisfaction.
