GOD IS THE ONLY SURE THING IN LIFE
There is only one sure thing in life, and, that is God. Pure and simple. Plain and true. Sure and honest.
Where can you go when you need a friend? God! Where can you find true love? God! Where are you accepted for who you are, nothing more, nothing less? God! Who can you take at His word? God! Who can you believe? God!
There once was a little girl who searched high and low for someone to care. She just wanted one friend to confide in and to lean on.One shoulder to lie her weary head on as the tears slipped unnoticed down her face. She searched for someone to hug her and someone to comfort her with strong arms to enclose her and hide her.
She worked hard to find approval from others. She tried to be the best she could ever be. She did chores without being told, going over and beyond what was expected. She studied hard to win a pat on the back for a job well done.
Most of the time, she just didn't quite know how to fit in. She want to belong so badly, but no matter what, she just couldn't seem to quite reach that status.
As she grew older, she continually searched and reached out without ever seeming to make contact.
She wondered at times, "Do I have a learning disability? I can't seem to be like others. What am I lacking? What am I missing? What am I not getting?"
Many years later, she still wonders.
What is love? How do you do "it?"
What is trust? How do you find "it?"
She concludes that she must be too gullible. She believes people to be who they portray themselves to be. She believes the things they tell her to be truth. She takes them at face value.
In doing so, she has learned some hard lessons. It hurts her and she wonders why it has to be so.
Who can understand life? She has tried and tried. She believed in someone when no one else did, only to be proven wrong after all was said and done.
She hopes when there is nothing left to hope in, clinging to every shred of it, only to be shown that that hope brought forth no fruit.
She gets knocked down, but comes up fighting, regardless. How long can this go on? Why does it have to go on? Why can't things change? Why can't they get better?
On into adulthood she wonders.
Humanity is a scary species. Why were we ever put on this earth? Surely the reason was not to simply stomp each other into the ground. Surely it was not to shoot our wounded.
God is good! He's more than good. He's awesome! Why can't we be like Him? He's compassionate. He's merciful. He's forgiving. He gives grace. He gives rest and peace. He loves unconditionally, even the worst of the worst.
Why aren't we changed by His love? Why do we continue battering each other? Why do we take advantage of one another and use one another?
Is it because we push Him out of our lives? How long can we deny the reality of His existence? Why can we not realize that we are only here because of Him?
Perhaps He needs to lie His weary head on my shoulder as the tears slip unnoticed down His face for people who do not care.
