It’s funny how life turns out. How your family changes. How your friends change. And how suddenly you look back on life and think, how did I get here?
You have a long list of people to blame for the predicament you’re in. But in reality the only person you can blame no matter how hard it hurts is—yourself.
Life is a series of choices. Wake up or stay asleep? Listen or not to listen? The list endlessly continues on. Whether you like it or not you have to face the choices you‘ve made, whether good or bad. As humans we won’t always make the right choice; however there are resources available for you to seek the right answers.
Lots of young people seek untrustworthy counsel when wise counsel is readily available. What is wise counsel? Wise counsel is your parents, or an elder, books, or the Internet. In all cases, of course those suggestions won’t be the best choice. However, they are better than running to someone who is ignorant of your problem.
So many people are hurting, confused, lost and doubt there is anyone who can stop their pain.
Pain they try to end by cutting themselves. Thinking the dripping blood will cause the pain to diminish.
Pain they try to hide by craving words into their skin. Thinking the words will somehow replace the pain hidden inside their troubled heart.
Pain they try to hide by having sex with anyone that winks their way. Thinking the pleasure will cause them to forget the pain they will have to face once the intercourse is over.
Pain they try to destroy with every sip they take from their alcoholic beverage. Thinking they will no longer feel the hurt that has been repeatedly done to them.
No matter how much you cry, whisper, or yell out for help no human being can rescue you from your distress. No matter how much knowledge people have or how fancy their appearance is, human assistance will only get you so far.
Until you find yourself in a deep, dark pit once again.
You need the help of a risen savior. Who cares so deeply for you that He took your burdens all on the cross. A savior who was beaten and scarred so you no longer have to suffer the pain. He bore it all so you can be free. Jesus Christ is the greatest super hero you’ll ever know, and cares for you more than you care for yourself.
Isn’t it amazing that someone would die for you, so you wouldn’t have to suffer? Don’t carry your burdens, when you don’t have to. Turn the pain over to the Lord for He cares for you, and watch Him perform a miracle in your life.
