Where is Jesus in my mess?
How can I help others see Him in me when my life seems like such a struggle?
How can I make Jesus look good when everything’s falling apart?
When our life seems like a mess, do we add to the mess? Like complain, snappy at our family, cry/pity party, etc?
Speaking for myself… I usually make things worse before they get better! I make myself feel bad and have a pity party about why things are happening or why things are not going like I want! But, what if
they are going exactly like God has planned??
Ummm that's a new way to look at it!! He may have you struggling to teach you something you need to know or to help someone else later on or to allow someone to help you in your time of need!! God is never surprised by our situation! He has a plan and wants us to pray and most of all listen to Him!
So to answer where is Jesus in my mess? He is right where you are!! He knows you better than anyone, your thoughts, your worries, your doubts, etc. BUT He also knows your happiness, strengths and what makes you at peace, JESUS.
To answer How can I help others see Him in me when my life seems like such a struggle? Turn to Him… tell others without Jesus you could not make it through the difficult times! Most people can relate to struggles and love to hear how we prevail!!
Jesus is the answer.
And last How can I make Jesus look good when everything’s falling apart? Jesus looks good no matter what… always remember just when we think things are falling apart… God has them falling into place! We must trust His will even when we don't understand it!!
I hope this has helped just one person today!! Knowing that God is right with you no matter where you are in life!!!
May God bless you and your family!
