Eeww We have issues. I know I do. I’m finally not scared to admit it. I have been facing them. I’ve experienced some serious ups and downs through life. There are some that are still hard to talk about and others that I am very happy to share with the occasion arises. The more I communicate with others the more I realize how much we are ALL dealing with at any given time. Life’s challenges don’t always make sense but if you approach them in the right state of mind they always make faith.
Then Jesus said to the woman, “I was sent only to help God’s lost sheep—the people of Israel.” Matthew 15:24
Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us. 2 Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God’s glory.
3 We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. 4 And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. 5 And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love. Romans 5:1-5
Thank you for this day. Thank you for having people around that me that are growing strong enough to admit that they have issues and that they need help facing those issues. Thank you for helping us address those issues in a healthy way.
