‘When life hands you a lemon, make lemonade. Do you sometimes find yourself facing a seemingly impossible situation? It might be a relationship that seems to have broken down irretrievably, or an issue to do with health, finances or something else where change seems impossible.
With God there is always hope, no matter how bad things look. Nothing is impossible with God. His power makes all things possible.Whatever challenges we may face in the year ahead, nothing is too hard for the Lord. Nothing is Impossible with God. With God all things are possible.
Whatever struggles you are facing at the moment, however difficult life looks, however impossible the situation seems, it is important to remember his love for you and trust that ‘with God all things are possible’ (Matthew 19:26). It is the power of God that makes what seems impossible possible. Nothing is impossible with God (Luke 1:37). God created the entire universe out of nothing. Until you find a relationship with Jesus, life will not really make sense.
I have spent far too much time worrying about things in my life – family, illness, what to wear!… I find it difficult not to worry at all. If I don’t worry, it almost seems as if I don’t care.
There is a balance between being really concerned and burdened to pray, and being worried. I think the answer is really trusting that God hears my prayers and will act.
Stop worrying and start living. Jesus commands us not to worry about our life or material things. Think ahead, plan ahead, but don’t worry ahead. Trust in our Heavenly Father to provide. He knowsyour every need Faith is the antidote to worry.
We cannot add a single hour to our life by worrying. ‘Worry does not empty tomorrow of sorrow; but it empties today of strength.’
When I think about a problem over and over in my mind, that’s called worry. When I think about God’s Word over and over in my mind, that’s meditation. If I know how to worry, I already know how to meditate! I just need to switch my attention from my problems to Bible verses. The more I meditate on God’s Word, the less I will have to worry about.
Live in day-tight compartments. Live one day at a time. Don’t borrow trouble from tomorrow: ‘each day has enough trouble of its own’. Make a decision today not to worry about tomorrow. Trust God to provide for us one day at a time.
Jesus tells is to change our ambitions and priorities. Seek God for who he is and not for what he can do for us. Like us, God does not want his friends only to be interested in what they can get out of him. He wants us to seek his ‘presence’ not just his ‘presents’.
Trusting the Lord in difficult times. Hopefully he doesn’t mind me asking lots of times!
‘Do not worry about your life…’
