God Loves You
What if the life you are living completely changed? You lost your house, your job, your comfort zone was no longer there. Would you turn to God, if you had not already been a living Christian before, or would you still praise God for all things that were happening, if your were already a Christian? Think about it for a little while before reading on.
God loves each and every one of us and wants only the best for us. So while we may loose everything that is of earthly value to us Christ is still there for us no matter what we go through. It tells us in the Bible that it will rain on the just as well as the unjust. It is how we handle what happens that makes the difference. If we put all of our faith in Jesus Christ and know that He is watching over us and will not put any more on us than we can handle then we will be just fine. But if we did not have that faith it would be so much harder to cope with. There have been those that get so depressed that they commit suicide. I am sure that there will be more. Only by the Grace of God that with Him we can get through anything. We are looking for His face. We want to see and hear Him. One day we will. That is what we have to look forward to, eternal life with our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
If you or someone you know is dealing with depression seek professional help. God has supplied us with those we can talk with to help us get through times such as this. Whether it be our Pastor or a counselor. They are there has part of our support while we are still here on this earth. Be sure to pray with complete faith in Christ for Him to help us get through these times of trouble. He hears us and is there for us every second of every day.
Matthew 5:44-48 kjv
44: But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
45: That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
46: For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?
47: And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?
48: Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
Matthew 6:25-34 niv
25 "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes?
26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?
27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?
28 "And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin.
29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.
30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, you of little faith?
31 So do not worry, saying, What shall we eat?' or What shall we drink?' or What shall we wear?
32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.
33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
