I want to write about myself. Life can be very tough to live. Life is at times most miserable.
So I have a choice. Either stop feeling sorry for myself and let Jesus through the Holy Spirit. Control me. Or I can have my own pity party over things I have no control of or things I brought on myself.
God is in control no matter who tells you He is not. He is. God always answers the prayers of His people. He usually has three answers. No, or Yes, or wait.
When God says no we can either have a pity party or wait for what God has in store for us instead. Which is always much better. If God says yes, then we must praise Him all the more. If God says wait. His timing is perfect.
So who am I a slimy little worm to cry woe is me I did not get my own little way. Basically a pity party or feeling sorry for one self. God loves us so much He wants the best for us at all times. Even if it is not what we want. God loves us so much instead of destroying us and placing us in the lake of fire for eternity as we all deserve. He sacrificed His own Son to die for our sin. Jesus did not want to die on the cross but He knew it was the only way to save us from our sin. So He willingly went to the cross for us.Pity Party? Not Happening Click To Tweet
God did not remove our free will from us. He wanted us to love Him by our own choice. So He gave us a chance. All we have to do is accept His free Gift of Salvation. And once we do we live eternally. No one not even ourselves can take that from us. Once we are saved Jesus did it all for us on the cross and we are saved forever. It is a done deal.
Now saying the truth I must warn those who think this is a license to sin. It is not. We still must live in this sin sick world. Our sole purpose is to witness for Him. Otherwise when we get saved or born again or believe we would be taken immediately up to Him.
So let us who truly believe stop crying and whining that life is too tough for us. Let us stop having a pity party. I am pointing the finger at myself first.
When we do sin we can go to the Savior directly for forgiveness. 1:John 1:9. So instead of crying over spilt milk. Let us go directly to the Savior to find help in time of need. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4:16.
Pity Party? Not happening. If life is tough for you, Jesus is tougher if you have Him in your heart. So stop feeling sorry for yourself. I have felt sorry for myself. Poor little me waa waa waa. I know the truth does hurt. But only the truth can set us free. So accept Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior and live for eternity or reject the free gift of God and spend an eternity in the lake of fire.
Yes those who encourage us are extremely important but the truth must be there first and foremost. No tickling ones ears no lying just to make some one feel better. Get your head out and face life like God intended you to do. Stop crying and feeling sorry for yourself. PRAISE GOD all the time. God inhabits the praise of His people.
In closing I do love all my readers dearly enough to proclaim the truth. The truth is we all deserve to spend an eternity in the Lake of fire but do not have too. So do not have a pity party, and ask why me? I do this all the time to my shame.
I am chastised and sobered when I see others in a worse predicament I am in. PITY PARTY? Not happening.
