As this world turns, we, the people of God, are in the world but not of the world. Our home is in heaven, but now these temples are on the earth, with the rest of the folk. We control nothing but our spirits, and we can only do that in the Holy Spirit’s power.

There will be times when issues of life, unwatchful moments, and stuff bring us in very close proximity to that which we are trying so hard to avoid. Those times will bring on hurt, disappointment, and pain. Including all those things we are unable to deal with, burdens we can’t handle, which cause our steps to slow, our shoulders to droop, our minds to muddle.

What should I do now? Pray, yes, Pray!

You’ve been beaten down and scared, and those situations lay around just under the surface. You may get used to the pain and learn to deal with it, and they mount. They are not pleasant or pretty. They are ugly and unseemly.

How to rid yourself of the sheer undaunting pressure that’s crushing? The words to a song:
“Pray when it seems like its dark as midnight,
pray when you can not see your way through.
Ask it shall be given, seek and you shall find it,
Just don’t stop praying till the answer comes.”

Get your shovel, dig up all those troublesome messes, and lay them at the feet of Jesus. Tell Him how you really feel—anger, frustration, torment, and agony. You don’t feel God’s love toward your antagonist or charitable husband, friend, or employer.

Don’t attempt to sugarcoat the woes. Don’t dress it up or perfume them.
God is the Creator and the sustainer of the universe, but He does it, one person, at a time. That great Father, whose love is everlasting. Turn your pockets inside out. Uncover the misery and give it to Jesus.

The hymns of God ringing assures you, If there’s a need in your life, He will bear it if you only give it to Him wholly and honestly.
All to Jesus I surrender,
All to Him, I freely give.
I will ever love and trust Him,
In His presence daily live.

So you can come just as you are. Luke 22:32 “But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not.” He’s there, and He will help your unbelief, your weary soul, your broken heart. He’s our Father, the sustainer of the universe, and each one of us.
