Some people seem to take God for granted. They go through life blindly thinking they can take on the world alone. Dr. Phil would say, “How is that working for you?”
I was like that once. I didn’t even go to church. There were sports on Sundays I didn’t want to miss.
I got a wake up call from God in 2001. It was March 31st to be exact. I was sitting in my Ford Explorer in a high school parking lot, ready to end my life. I had been struggling with depression, and it was overcoming me.
I finally cried out, God! I can’t take this anymore! There was a sudden calmness around me. I relaxed and ponder what had just happened.
It was like God was saying, “It’s about time you came back to me. Now let me lead you the rest of the way.”
My life changed that day. That day was the first day of the rest of my life.
I have learned a lot since then.
- God is the Father of the fatherless. I was without a father because of divorce. I felt alone and my self image was shot.
- God is the defender of widows. There is nothing worse than to lose a loved one. God is there to comfort you during those times.
- God senses the loneliness in families. Seems odd to think you are lonely in your own home, but it can happen and is devastating.
Another thing I learned is that a is my job is to be a leader in my home. Not a dictator that rules the nest with anger. Satan would love for men to claim authority over their family. This only leads to turmoil and sadness.
Take an inventory of your choices in life. Do you need an overhaul? Is happiness a word you do not understand?
Turn to God. He loves you. He made you in His own image. That means you are His child.
You are never alone.
You are never forsaken.
You are never unloved.
And above all…never, ever, give up!
