We busy our lives with our tasks at hand seemingly like we’re driving down a freeway. We rush to go to work, shop or take the kids to an activity. We get all caught up in our lives. We may miss out on the important events as we’re just, “too busy”. When was the last time you visited a family member living by themselves or took time for your own self? In our worldly life we get so wrapped up in our daily lives, there is simply no room for anything else. Then all of a sudden, your life is turned upside down. A loved one gets sick, or you find out someone you care about has terminal cancer. Now chaos ensues, you may say, “how am I going to take care of them and keep up with everything else”. Your stress levels are through the roof. Be careful, your stress can also make you sick too and then what are you going to do?
What if I told you to get off the “Freeway of Life”? Take an exit to a narrow path not so widely used. Give God your burdens. Sometimes these things happen to give you “a wakeup call”. You don’t have to do it alone. Did you know that Satan (ruler of this world) prefers you to have your busy life? No time for your Spiritual self. Give your life over to God and he can straighten your narrow path. If you have trouble believing in God, look around. Did you know the Bible foretold what is happening in our world today? Do you feel kind of numb when ever you hear someone has been shot in a nearby city or even in your city… it’s becoming an everyday occurrence, or when you hear of these unmarked graves with all these children from residential schools? The last count I heard, at the time of writing this the count was over 1,000 kids. I don’t even think they scratched the surface. That numbness is because we’re being bombarded from the news about all these disastrous events and they’re only going to get worse. The people that persecuted these children will receive their judgement from the highest court. God will judge them; they won’t get away with what they’ve done. Death can’t save them. All of us are judged for the sins we commit. The difference is for Christians, (and I mean actual Christians, not those that say they are and hurt innocent children) is Jesus died to take away believers’ sins. We will have an advocate in heaven.
So, when you realize that life is getting too burdensome and stress is more that you can handle by yourself, realize that God is waiting to take those burdens from you. He loves all his children. Give your life over to him, take the narrow path less traveled.
13Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
14Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
15Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
16Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
17Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
18A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
19Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
“Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.”
1 Peter Chapter 5
6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:
7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
“These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”
