Do you ever sit back and think, where am I going in life? Why am I doing the things I do not want to do and the things I want to do I do not do them, those things you aren’t doing that would get you out of the rut of life you are currently in? Instead those mistakes you want to walk away from forever seem like a DVD player of life that is stuck on repeat. Isn’t it tough, almost unbearable, to walk into another year with the same old problems with no solutions? You keep pushing play to move on to the better life, but life stays stuck on repeat and you’re drowning inside. The problems that could be swallowed last year are now so big that you are choking to death inside. If this is you today, as you read this, I want you to know you are not the only one and you are not atone. For the Bible speaks of this exact situation in Romans 7:15. “l do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do.”
Sometimes in life we must sit back and not ask ourselves, “Where am I going in life.?” But we need to ask ourselves the tough question, “How did I get here?” “What are those bad decisions that have brought me to this point?” Once we have asked these questions, we realize we have problems, short coming, inadequacies and flaws. You have realized what every human has gone through at some point, I NEED HELP. If you are identifying with this article, then you may be thinking, what do I do to get out of this cycle? I hope this guy has the answer because I can’t go another day without some HELP, real, life transforming help. You see, as we go through life, we realize two things. One, we bring trouble into our life by our own bad decisions. Two, others can be cruel and bring evil our way even when we did nothing to deserve the deep pain that has been brought into our lives by others. Whether you’re the person who can’t go another day the way your life is currently or you’re the person who loves your life the way it is, we all need help.
The good news is there is someone who can help. HE is Jesus Christ, in whose birth we just celebrated. Christmas would not be a celebration without Jesus being born. Jesus is God’s one and only Son who came to earth to help you today. The name Jesus literally means Savior, Deliverer. I don’t know about you, but when the DVD player of life is stuck on repeat, we should all begin to realize we can’t fix it ourselves. We need someone to deliver us from our repeat mistakes. Those repeat mistakes, failures, flaws, or whatever you want to call them, the Bible says they are sin and sin separates us from God. You might say, “l don’t care that I am separated from God. Why does it matter?” Well, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” Genesis 1:1. In Genesis 1:27 it also says, “God created man in his own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female.” He created you for a purpose. You have a decision to make today. Do you want God’s help because there is not help outside of Him? That help comes through His one and only Son, Jesus. If you want a Savior, God is offering his Son as the way to get the DVD player of life off repeat and He will get you moving forward toward Him. He wants to be your Father. He wants to help you. His Son is your help. To begin a life with God, you must repent of your sins and place your faith and trust in Jesus. Jesus is changing the Iron Range and He is starting with you.
