LIFE SUCKS! Is there something about your life bothering you? Stymied career? Failing marriage? Spiraling income? Spiritually weakened? Satanic attack? Emotionally broken? Low self-esteem? Lack of discipline? Unruly children? Peer pressure? Lack of control? Sleepless nights? Just about any of these conditions would make ones life suck.
So then…what would it might take… to get control over ones life such that… one would not feel that life sucks. It would seem, then that something or someone has to change. And, if something is going to change…. then, what… Can we (you, or me) control change? Sure, but only if the change that takes place is initiated by ourselves … you, or me. We humans can ONLY control CHANGE in our own lives. We cannot FORCE others to bend to our wants.
Although, for us (you, or me)… to CONTROL ourselves… our habits… (good or bad) then, we have to treat it just like a “self-imposed diet.” We’ve got to be COMMITTED to the CHANGE that we want to initiate. Losing weight? WOW! That’s pretty darn hard to do. It takes a very STRONG character to CONTROL our eating habits. We LOVE to eat.
If one needs a real change in their life then a change of one’s habits, life-style, social life, relationships, and likely our spiritual commitment will have to take place. NO-ONE can do that CHANGE but… ourselves. No one can do it for us. We control our participation in every element… work, family, social, sports, and the spiritual elements incasing our lives. Sure, we might bend a little here…or a little there, to keep emotions in control, to please those others who are close to the problem; but other than that… we are the responsible party.
Examine our functional habits is the first step in that process. We should replace those habits that have negative effects on our life with those that have a positive impact. The main ingredient to change is ATTITUDE. Likely… a bad-attitude is the culprit that has gotten our life to such a condition that it SUCKS. A bad-attitude could CRIPPLE anyone of the conditions cited in the first paragraph.
There is, however… an ANTIDOTE available… FREE of charge… available to all of us… one which will curb the effects of a bad attitude. It’s called the LOVE and…. GRACE. ….Through the Grace of God… all things will be perfected.
We are told in …2 Corinthians 12:9 – My Grace is enough for you, for in weakness… power reaches perfection.
We should also find comfort in… Isaiah 40:29-31 – He gives strength to the weary, And to him who lacks might He increases power. Though youths grow weary and tired, And vigorous young men stumble badly, Yet those who wait for the LORD Will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles, They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary.
