“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.” Revelation 1:8
Few things in life are consistent
Who can you count on? Friends? Family? I rely on my husband and my parents a lot. I trust them and look to them for guidance when I’m questioning what to do. But guess what, sometimes when I need to talk to them, they’re not available. They could be in meetings, on the phone (my parents don’t have call waiting!), or they could be out doing something wonderful for the community. But I need them. I wanted them to be there for me.
I’ve been there
One of the reasons I go to my parents and my husband with my problems is because they’ve been there. They’ve experienced some of what I’m going through. However, sometimes I don’t feel like they get me, like they truly understand what’s going on in my head.
God has seen it all
No matter what I’m going through, God understands. He has seen it all. When He came to earth in Jesus Christ, He experienced the pain and suffering I think is so unique to me. He’s dealt with people who didn’t see His potential. People who only saw what he was on the outside. He get’s it. He gets me. He understands losing someone close to you, watching someone he loves being in pain, he understands being frustrated at the injustices of the world.
When nobodies home, God will still answer
I’m working hard to keep my focus on the one, the only one who can truly understand me fully. The one who created me and loves me no matter what. And even if no one else is home to call when things are going badly, Jesus is always there for me to call on, today, yesterday and tomorrow.
Who do you call when trouble hits?
