Hebrews 12:1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
Surely our griefs He Himself bore,
And our sorrows He carried;
Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken,
Smitten of God, and afflicted.
1 Peter 2:24 “Who His own Self bare our sins in His Own Body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by Whose stripes ye were healed.”
1 Peter 5:7 Casting all your care upon Him; for He careth for you.
We were not created to solve the problems of the world. We were not even created to carry our own burdens, much less those of others.
We were built with a “maximum capacity”, of what we can bear. Outside, or over that , we sometimes find ourselves surprised when we get physically, mentally and even spiritually overwhelmed. Why?
Well, as with anything, our design, which God Himself set in motion, is to handle each situation with His help and guidance, through the strength He gives. Whether we want to admit full dependence on the Lord or not, we are completely reliant upon Him.
The One Who gives us each breath, also allows us the ability to breathe it. So we do not need to attempt holding on and trying to deal with our burdens by ourselves, much less those of family and friends, because that is not following God’s design. Something may seem “fixed” by our own doing. Either it isn’t repaired, or we didn’t do it on our own.
There are counselors, pastors and those trained to hear people talk out issues, but they are not personally taking on the problems upon themselves, they simply utilize tactics they’ve learned as techniques, possibly help the struggling, more easily adapt and handle situations as they arise.
Some find comfort in those resources, others do not .Why not avail yourself to the Source of Truth. Pour over God’s Word and seek guidance from Him. With the Lord, there is no awkwardness, trying to explain your life situation in an hour. He already knows your family dynamics, your hurts, pains and fears. He understands your circumstances.
Unlike human counseling, there is no use attempting to cover up or intentionally mislead your actions, inactions or intent. Go to the Lord, and admit your need for Him. He will certainly answer you, probably not audibly (although He certainly could).
Nor will the resolution probably come how or when you want it. BUT, the Lord will give wisdom liberally when asked, as the Word says in James 1:5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
NO appointment needed, 24/7 access! There is no reason to go elsewhere! Why go to the Subjects for resolve; Instead go straight to the King Who holds all of the power!
So when others come to you, don’t think that you are being “mean” by not listening, I mean, you can listen, but time is better by turning to Christ, not to you who may be filled with “ideas”, but lack the authority to make changes!
Great and Glorious King

First, and most importantly, I love Jesus Christ and I trust in Him as my Lord and Savior.
I was raised in a Christian home by a godly dad and mom (who planned and had me in July before turning 42 in August), and 5 older siblings.
My father passed away when I was 7 and my mother (who went to be with the Lord in 2005 at 81) never remarried.
As a child, I was bullied at school, so I did not have many friends. I didn't want to tell my mom this because I knew she had enough worry being a widow at 50. I know what it is like to be lonely.
As an adult, God showed me the value of His Friendship and has blessed me, too, with rich relationships with dear friends who also love the Lord.
My husband and I (married 31 years as of 2020), have three wonderful, adult children and son-in-law as well as three darling grandchildren.
Along with many others, my husband lost his job, but we refuse to be fearful or angry. The Lord has provided for us and we are so thankful for the opportunity to express gratitude through personal contact and occasional memories I share through writing.
I believe the Lord has given me a venue to engage with others and a means to share His Word.
Thank you for checking out my page. I hope you enjoy what you read.
If there is anything positive or insightful in the devotionals (NOT CALLING MY WRITING "INSPIRED" by any means!), I give all credit and glory to Jesus Christ! On the other side of that, when something makes no sense, that's all me
