I remember when all of my days were so cluttered with problems, drama and the results of making poor decisions. It seemed I didn’t have anywhere I could go and find peace from all the turmoil in my life. I went to my friends, but they were in a hole themselves. I read self-confidence books but I got even more confused. I watched television psychs and doctors, talk show hosts and whatever else I could find that might help me escape from the pressure. I almost went to a tarot card and palm reader looking for answers. Finally, it came to thoughts of suicide, thinking that once I was dead, I wouldn’t have to deal with none of it anymore.
Therefore, humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. – 1 Peter 5:6-7
Then one day, when I wasn’t thinking about my problems, in fact, things were beginning to look up and I was experiencing some stress-free days when Jesus touched my heart. I can’t explain the peace I felt. The freedom I experienced that day was like no other thoughts of freedom I had in the past.
Then I realized, I had found a friend who came to me and offered to help me with my heavy burdens. I started gradually trusting Jesus and the more I trusted Him, the more He showed me He cared.
Got Problems? If you’re experiencing overwhelming stress and desires that will destroy you, place all of that stress on someone who cares and knows how to fix it for you. Jesus doesn’t have favorites, He loves you enough to do what He did for me.
