It looks like your world is crumbling, things are too tight, and why is this happening to me, why can’t this situation be over? So many questions bothering your heart; I have a burden in my heart for many that are going through difficult time at the moment and I wish to encourage you, to remind you that you are not alone, God is with you to see you through.
'In every life we have some trouble, when you worry you make it double, don't worry, be happy', lyrics of a song by a musician called Bobby McFerrin and yes it is true; be happy because if you think always, you will think yourself right out of happiness a thousand times over, and never once into it. Worrying doesn’t take away tomorrow’s troubles, rather it takes away today’s peace and potential. 'Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?' (Matt. 6:27).
Sometimes the biggest limitations are the ones you make up in your mind, the biggest causes of unhappiness are the false beliefs you refuse to let go of. You are capable of far more than you are presently thinking, imagining, doing or being. You will however become what you habitually contemplate and fear will sets in; please clear your mind, don't be afraid, hope in God. Remember, Christ in you, the hope of glory (Col. 1:27) and 'For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.' (2Tim. 1:7)
Yes it seems it is easier said, but I strongly believe happiness comes when you stop complaining about your problems and you start being grateful for all the problems you don't have. Getting worried won't bring the right person, it will only make you carry a long face and trust me nobody wants to have an unhappy partner, he/she will come when you are happily fulfilling destiny in Christ; it will not get you that job, that child, that admission, it will only deny you of your happiness.
Whether you are happily single, happily in a courtship or happily married, happily employed, and so on, please know that the key is not the status but in you understanding that you deserve to be happy! Remember the joy of the Lord is your strength (Neh. 8:10b) which means your strength lies in being joyous in the Lord, so when you are sad, you are indirectly giving room for the devil to perpetrate evil because your strength is not in sadness. Yes the situation is painful but do not worry God will see you through, He has done it before, He can do it again.
Don't overestimate your problems, and underestimate God because the size of your problem is nothing compared with the grace to solve it. Tell that big problem you have a bigger God.
Please stay strong and don't forget to smile, God is your strength.
Confession: The joy of the Lord is my strength
I love you
