This year has been the hardest year for so many people. The weight of having bad things thrown at us time and time again has began to put a strain on us that is affecting our lives in several ways. The anxiety that has come along with all of the unknowns and the worry of how bad things are going to get has caused us lack of sleep. We can not keep our focus on the important things due to all of the worries that we have on our mind. Our patience is running low with our kids and we have a hard time being there for others because we feel so overwhelmed ourselves. All of the what if’s plaque our minds to where we can not seem to get a moments peace.
Some of us are afraid that we are going to lose our house or our car. Some fear where the next meal will come from due to being laid off of work. Some are worrying about how they are going to keep their house warm during the winter. Some are worried that their child will be the next gunshot victim or drug overdose. The list goes on and on with the worries that we are all facing right now but there is reason for hope.
Matthew 6:25-27 says… That’s why I tell you not to worry about everyday life. Whether you have enough food or drink or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, drink, and clothes. Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for their heavenly father feeds them. Aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are? Can all your worries add a single moment to your life?
God is saying in these scriptures, “I GOTCHA”!!! We may not know where how we are going to pay the bill, put food on the table, or keep a loved one safe but God does. We have to put our trust in him and know that he will make the way. We are not making our situation any better by sitting around and worrying about it. We are actually making it worse for ourselves by doing that. We are causing ourselves to have more stress and anxiety. God cares about you and me. He will provide for us if we put our trust in him. He has ways that we could never think of to make things work out. And He is saying to you today, “my child, please don’t worry, I gotcha.”

HOW DARE YOU MINIMIZE THE REALITY OF THOSE SUFFERING FROM THE LOSS OF THEIR SHELTER, THEIR JOBS, THEIR ABILITY TO PROVIDE PLUS THOSE WHO HAVE LOST A FAMILY MEMBER TO THIS GOD AWFUL VIRUS. HOW DARE YOU SAY THAT GOD WILL FIND A WAY TO HELP THEM. “PROMISE THOSE THAT HE WILL PROVIDE BUT DO NOT PROMISE THEM A LIE”. ANYONE CAN WRITE THIS BULL AND PREY ON THE NEEDY BUT DO NOT PROMISE WHAT YOU OR GOD CAN NOT FULFILL. YOU ARE THE BEARER OF A FALSE PROPHET AND BY SUGGETING THAT THE POOR AND THE SUFFERING WILL BE HELPED IS WRONG. THEY WILL ONLY HELP THEMSELVES IF THEY FIND A WAY WITH FRIENDS, FAMILY AND PERHAPS THE GOVERNMENT GIVING A LARGER CHECK THEN $600.00.
I am not trying to minimize any of the suffering that is going on in the world right now. I am not promising to give someone something take away the suffering. We are all suffering in some way shape or form. I am not offering false hope because the hope is real. I have seen god provide threw suffering. And all I can do is speak on my actual experiences and the truth that I have seen. I wish that i could take the suffering away and i do not understand why we all have to endure such things. But i have to hold onto the hope of better days to be able to get threw the hard days. And I have found it to be true that when we place our hope in God that eventually things work out as long as I do what I can do or what I am suppose to do on my part. God works through others and we can at least help encourage others from our own experiences if we can not do anything else.
