It can be overwhelming and frightening. But I know we have a God that loves us. Through Him we have HOPE in this situation. When I checked my email earlier this morning I found this scripture in Exodus. And it fits so well.
But I’m a slow learner. Although I heard over and over again about laying my problems at the feet of Jesus, I didn’t really get that, nor how to do that.
Part of the struggle is that we view our lives and our hurts through human eyes. When we do this, especially for those that have deep hurts, we can find ourselves in a perpetual cycle of doubt and depression.
They didn’t treat us as if we were silly or stupid for hanging on to HOPE for repaired relationships or the need for strength and guidance from God.
Like anything the Bible has been used inappropriately-whether is is people taking a scripture out of context or going to the ‘legalistic’ end of the spectrum.
