Tragedies, hard times, trials, and the pressure of life reminds us that we need a Savior. We need His comfort, His love, peace, strength, joy, etc. We can’t do this life on our own. It is Him who can only give HOPE to this lost world.
God doesn’t just allow things to happen, but He allows them for a reason, to show us all how helpless we are without Him.
Could you imagine going through life with all the trials without Him? It’s unimaginable. Now that I look back on my life, I often think, wow how did I make it out alive? I’m sure God had and still has His hand on me.
I’ve lived on my own since I was 15 years old. I left home and my mom moved to another state without me. We still kept in contact though. She didn’t give me any financial or emotional support. I was all alone at a young age with a boyfriend. I had to find work on my own. I worked many odd jobs, yet they never lasted. Neither did I had a stable place to stay. It was ongoing and tons of pressure for a teenage girl. It was until I reached the age of 20 and got reunited with my dad that my life truly turned around. (Parents are divorced.)
Similar to how when we first received God into our life, everything dramatically change for the better. I knew without a doubt that God sent my dad back into my life.
He’s a business man and traveled a lot. I rarely got to see him, but he supported me financially and emotionally. When my dad and I got reunited, he took care of me, he took on my burdens. He got me a stable place to live, a car, and provided income while I was in school full time. I needed to finish getting my high-school diploma and college degree. Life came together for me. It was amazing! Although, I was a Christian and walking with the Lord, I wasn’t fully committed. I was in and out of church.
As you can see without God we’re left wandering alone in this lonely dark world. You can have friends and family and yet, your world can still feel incomplete. The day that my earthly dad walked into my life, everything changed, for the better. Just like when our heavenly Father comes into our life, everything shifts and we’re never the same.
Don’t go through life without the Father. Remember, that in and through everything we NEED Him. Sure, there’s evil among us, but the good outlast them all. Why? Because God is ALWAYS good. Not only is He good in the good times but also in the bad times. He works through people to remind us of His goodness and why we need Him.
