Topic: At Wit’s End (02/13/14)

TITLE: Step on your brakes!
By Rose Hyman


Step on your brakes!

I often hear people say, “I am at a point in life where I don’t know how I am going to make it.” This is the point in life where this person needs to “step on their life brakes” and allow God to take the driver seat in his or her life. God did not intend for us to travel our life journey without Him, He specially tells us in His word to “acknowledge Him and He will direct our path.” It’s ok if you’re reading this and thinking, “I don’t know much about God’s word.” Just know that it’s never to late to allow God to be the director of your life.

As you allow God to direct your life, you are allowing Him to lead you into the joyous and peaceful life that He has intended for you to live. No, God did not say that you "would not have trials and tribulations," but God tells us in scripture that during these times, He wants to be with us and comfort us. God also wants His children to have the best, so when you allow Him to direct your life there are no limitations on your achievements.

Psalm 46:10 says, “Be still, and know that I am God.” For you to know the power that’s in this verse, you first must know about God’s promises, and the love that He has for you. To know God and to have a relationship with Him is not an un-reachable task. You first must repent of your sins and allow God to come into your heart and pray to God for wisdom and understanding. Through your prayers to God, He will reveal to you more about Him, His promises for you, if you trust Him, and how He will never forsake you or leave you. Also as you seek a deeper relationship with God through meditating on His word, you will understand the meaning of the scripture, “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” (Psalm 119:105)

Through God’s word, you will know:

That God will strengthen you in your weakness.
That God has not given you the spirit of fear.
That God is your resource for all your needs.
That God instructs you to cast all your cares on Him.
That God will always be with you where ever you go.
That God will sustain you when you are overwhelmed.
That God has the greatest love for you.
And God will carry you when you are “At Wit’s End”

Beautiful devotional...thank you for this lovely entry.

God bless~

This is a great devotional teaching that is worth the read. It is short and straight to the point of the topic.

Don't be afraid to write longer story or devotions. The maximum words you can get up to is 750.
You can use Microsoft Office to count your words if you are not already using it.

If you haven't visited the forums I would encourage you to do that. There is a wealth of information over there and you can make some great writer friends as well!

God Bless, and keep writing!

Good thoughts.

Yes, we are to seek his kingdom and all these things will be added unto us. Finding his kingdom is important and then listening to what he has to say.

Keep writing.

First I want to say you have some wonderful messages here for all people. Your heart to share what God has shown you is great. And that is a good thing.

Now in hopes of giving some positive critique...

From experience I can tell you that some will feel that your message is too pointed or "preachy" as some put it. A way to avoid this is to show how God taught you these things. Instead of talking to the reader, saying "you", you could share with the reader the power of God changing your life by learning these things. Change it to "I" and "me", or at least "we".

Also, be careful not to repeat words, like in your opening paragraph: "this point in life".

You have a wonderful talent and I hope you'll keep growing with us as a Christian writer.
