There are many times when life deals you stuff...okay, crap. Whether it comes from school, work, family, friends, relationships, hobbies, etc. What do you do about it? I mean, how do you handle it? Do you stress? Freak out and find a tall tower with a rifle? Scream and badger others? Or do you move on, continue with life, and crush the attempts of life's chains from holding you down? I prefer to do several things.
First, I give it to Jesus. He didn't suffer and die for you to ignore Him. There was purpose behind what He did, what He said, and how He did and say what He did and said. Wow, confused? Don't be. His presence and ability to handle our battles far outweigh our meager attempts at saying "I can handle it". We can't. You know and I know we cannot, so don't even try. And forget about trying to handle someone else's. Second, I continue with life: work, hobby, relaxing at home or in a moment of peace. You can fill in the blank here with a myriad of things.
I also find that when I do give my problems to Jesus, I escape. Writing is one way. Another way, for me, is to delve into my hobbies. And the cool thing about all this is to watch God show up in a way you never thought of to remedy the situation you never expected could or would be fixed.
So, again, I ask...with things against you, and with God on your side, why worry?
