Life is hard, when God when will you take this cup

Life is Hard

Let’s be honest for a second. Life is hard and unfair? Am I not right? Things happen in life, that I believe aren’t met to happen. I’m sure you’ve felt the same way before, correct? It’s like, God where are you, when are you going to show up in my life? I can’t take it anymore!

We’ve all heard the Bible verses, that God will never put on you anything that you cannot bare, and how He’s always with you. Those are all true and they’re great verses to hear, but sometimes it doesn’t always get in our hearts where it makes us feel better, does it?

What makes us feel better?

Since I’ve already given you all the negatives, let me give you some tips that might help.

life is hard

Take breaks from your daily routine. Doing so will help your mindset when you do have to get back to your responsibilities, and even though the situation may not change, you’re attitude might.
Ask God to help you get through the day, with His guidance and patience. Dump all your problems onto Him.

Remember to breathe, and remind yourself “If God brought me to it, He’ll get me through it.”
Find one of your favorite Bible verses and have it in the back of your mind, or on a note card where you can see it.

Keep in mind, even though life is not fair, but we have a perfect God who is strong and mighty to solve all your problems.

Give yourself the same advice as you would your best friend if she was in your shoes.
Ask yourself if Jesus were standing right in front of me, what would He tell me?

Sometimes in life, it’s okay not to be okay. I’ve heard quite a few pastors say that in my lifetime, and it’s true. You don’t always have to have a smile on your face and put on the mask. I believe in some ways, it’s why there’s so much depression because we’re pretending to be something we’re not. Holding things in isn’t good either, it tends to build up on the inside. However, God doesn’t want us to stay down.

Even though we read and listen to the Bible and we feel no different, believe it or not, it’s helping our souls. It’s helping us not to go off on that person, it’s helping us love our loved ones. The list goes on. You may not realize what an impact you make on yourself and others, all because you stay close to the Lord.

You never have to go through life alone. If you’re struggling, please reach out to someone you trust, and please know that I’m always here for you as well. Most importantly, Jesus is, and He loves you very much, even if you don’t feel it.

When will God take our cups?

Wish I had the answer you want to hear, but I don’t. Even though sometimes God may not take away our circumstances He will make it easier to bare, with His love, guidance, protection, and wisdom you can and will get through this difficult life we face on a daily basis.

Psalm 23:4 Even when I walk
    through the darkest valley,
I will not be afraid,
    for you are close beside me.
Your rod and your staff
    protect and comfort me.
