The Struggle is Real… So is the Solution!

IMG_7035

Here lately I have seen the phrase “the struggle is real” a lot on social media and the truth is, struggles are real! Everyone struggles with different things in their lives. People will go through difficult times due to their circumstances in life. Sometimes, our struggles overwhelm us and we lose hope. When there is no hope, people become desperate or they just want to give up on hope and life. However, it doesn’t have to be that way. There is hope! I know the struggle is realbut so is the solution to our struggles! God’s promises that are found in His Word are the solutions to our struggles!

Yesterday morning, as I was reading Psalm 145, I came across a few verses that stood out to me. These verses speak to those who are struggling! If you are struggling, the following verses give us hope! They show God’s compassion, mercy, faithfulness and His love. Take these few verses and cling to them, don’t let them go! Plant them in your heart so you will have them when your struggles hit you square in the face! Find comfort in the only One who can truly help you with your struggles, and His name is Lord God!

“The Lord helps the fallen and lifts those bent beneath their loads.” Psalm 145:14

“The Lord is close to all who call on him, yes, to all who call on Him in truth.
He grants the desires of those who fear Him; He hears their cries for help and rescues them. The Lord protects all those who love Him, but He destroys the wicked.” Psalm 145:18-20

If you are struggling right now, no matter what it is, understand that while the struggle is real so is the solution! Cry out to the Lord God. Allow Him to recuse and heal you! Allow Him to pour His mercy, compassion and love on you! There is not a struggle that is too big that the Lord cannot handle!

Prayer: “Lord God, I come to you with my struggles. I am having a difficult time in my life right now. I cry out to You for Your help! Please recuse me and heal me of my brokenness. I am going to trust in Your promises that are found in Your Word today. Show me Your grace and Your love today as I allow You to touch my life. Amen.”
