“The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.”
— Psalm 34:18
In life we tend to let our emotions get the better of us, and at the end of the day tend to wonder what our next move is. God wants us to go to him with all of our problems no matter how big or small they might be.
When times get tough and life gets the better of us, our lives tend to spiral out of control. It is at that point we must have full faith in God and the eternal promises that he has laid out for us.
Even in the darkest of days Jesus’ eternal light still shines through to help illuminate our lives.
Through sadness and depression it’s really important to keep the word of God close to you because it is the only cure for a troubled heart.
Whether you’re going through a bad breakup or having a hard time coping with a new transition in your life, God is always there to guide you in the right direction. We make the mistake of assuming that our problems are ours and ours alone, but what we fail to realize is that in fact our problems are God’s because he has already promised to solve them for us.
Sadness is a problem that manages to ravage even the purest of hearts. We often can’t understand why certain things in our lives happen and when we are wronged this tends to put a negative feeling in our hearts.
When the prophet Job was tested by God he had all of his fortunes taken from him. His family, his livestock and his health were all taken away by God. Job had suffered tremendously throughout his life, but in the end remained faithful to God and continued to have faith in him throughout it all.
But what does this mean? How can we just take all of the pain and suffering that we go through and just look the other way? The answer is simple. We have to realize that when we have periods of sadness and weakness that God is simply testing our faith and our ability to trust in him.
God has made it perfectly clear that he will shoulder our burdens and comfort us in our time of need. So despite what you are going through just remember that God will take care of you until the end because it was promised to you in the beginning.
