Yesterday was tough. I went to the hospital to see two different people. I go all of the time but this was more difficult because I don’t know how long either one of them will live.
I love to have a good time. I am a jokester and a prankster too. But I take life seriously. There is nothing funny about death. Thankfully both of the people I went to see know the Lord. In fact I led one to Christ last month. So eternity is not in question.
I wonder how people who don’t have a relationship with God handle life and death situations? How do you deal with pain and heartache? What do you do when life throws you curves?
I really don’t understand how anyone could make it without having a personal relationship with God!
What do you hope for? Who do you turn to? I truly believe it takes more faith not to trust in God than it does to trust in Him. I’m so grateful I don’t have to live my life on my own. When I take on his burdens He takes mine from me. Matthew 11:28-30 says:
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
Legend has it that Jesus made some of the best Yoke around. He knew what He was talking about. I’m thankful that God loves me enough to give me His yoke and He takes all of my burdens. It isn’t a cake walk but it is much easier than living this life on my own.
How do you make it through life?
