When you’re tired and weary,
When you feel burdened by the problems you carry,
When you’re struggling with sanity,
When your eyes start to tear and get blurry,
When you feel bruised and battered,
When your world gets shattered,
When you feel like you start to lose faith and do not matter,
Surrender and come to His Altar.
The weight of the world is heavy on you.
Your heart is tattered and broken into two.
The pain makes you weak and blue.
Don’t lose heart and pray for a breakthrough.
Throughout our lives, we have encountered plenty of challenges that renders us weak—in mind, body, and spirit. When we have hit the lowest of the low, questioning God would most likely happen. “Why do I have to suffer like this? Out of all the people in the world, why me? I feel like I don’t deserve to suffer to this extent, God. Bad guys have done things way worse than me. Why do you let bad things to happen to me? Why does it feel like you have abandoned me?” Surely, these dialogues are pretty familiar to you as these are similar to what we have told God when faced with deep struggles.
We cannot overcome the struggles in our lives if we would only rely on our own strength. God is a great provider. He provides spiritual and physical strength and He freely gives this if we ask. We have to acknowledge that we cannot do this alone. We must humble ourselves and pray to Him—surrender everything and every burden we carry. Most importantly, trust the Lord with all your heart. Trust that God keeps His promises because trusting God gives you unwavering faith and the strength you need.
Remember, we are not alone with our trials. As it was written on Isaiah 41:10, “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” We may not know the real reasons behind our struggles as God’s knowledge is greater than our own. One thing is for sure, God’s love for us is imminent, unconditional, and abundant. He loves us that he wants us to grow right—that we must be broken before we can be molded into God’s masterpiece.
