We can’t live life on our own. The weight of the world is too heavy to bear. We need a Savior. We need someone that will never forsake us. We need someone that can help us along the way. At times we may think that we can do anything on our own. We feel invincible and are proud of our accomplishments. We feel a sense of happiness in the world around us. However, this joy we are feeling is only temporary. Before we know it life is crashing down on us. It will happen time after time until we realize that we can’t make it on our own. We will find ways to be happy but we will never be satisfied. The only way will find true happiness in life is through Jesus. His love never fails. He will love us until the end. The Lord will never leave us. We need to learn to trust in Him.
Life without Jesus is like a roller coaster. We try to buckle ourselves in but it is too bumpy to handle. We need something that can help us through it. We need something that is consistent. We need a friend that never gives up on us. We need somebody we can always lean on for an answer. This is why Jesus is so important. Only through Him can we be fully satisfied in this life. He needs to be our focus. We need to let Him into our lives. When he is our guide life will go much smoother. Even when things are difficult we will be able to bear it with the Lord’s comfort. We will all sin along the way but the Lord will forgive us as we repent. We will find strength to bare the weights of the world. Our hearts will have finally found something consistent in the Lord. The Lord never gives up on us. Even when we fall short He never stops loving us. He is always by our side.
Lord, I can’t make it without You. I am done fighting the world on my own. I will put my trust in You. My heart needs your comfort. I need a way to escape the pains I bear. Life is too hard to live on my own. Keep me safe Lord. Help me know where to go in life. Help me know what is best for me. Help me know how to provide for my family. Help me keep my priorities in order. I am in need of your guidance. When I fall short I feel stuck. I feel the chains of the world on my shoulders. I need your mercy to help me pull through it. I need your forgiveness to lift me up. Your grace helps me know that I am loved. I can feel your unconditional love for me. Lord, please bless any one that is reading this message. Lift up their spirits. Give them hope and comfort. I pray that all people will grow to trust in You, Lord. You are all we need to make it in this world.
1 My son, do not forget my law, But let your heart keep my commands;
2 For length of days and long life And peace they will add to you.
3 Let not mercy and truth forsake you; Bind them around your neck, Write them on the tablet of your heart,
4 And so find favor and high esteem In the sight of God and man.
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding;
6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.
7 Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the Lord and depart from evil.
8 It will be health to your flesh, And strength to your bones.
