23 Apr Where is God in this?
We are teenagers and life can stuck, and sometimes we are asking ourselves “where is God in this?” We go to school, we work, we play sport, we go to youth and do after school activities and let’s face it, and we are social people, but some days we just feel like hiding in our beds, and just screaming “I give up” and “I feel alone”.How do I know this? Because I’ve been through this too.
Some days I feel like everyone around me is out to get me and I feel all alone and that nobody cares, but then I remember that God loves me and he never leaves me. It says in Deuteronomy 31:6 –
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.
I can’t explain why we go through hard times, all I know is that God loves us and will help us through it. God promised his Holy Spirit to help guide us through life and when we invite the Holy Spirit to dwell with us our life changes. When we go through hard times it teaches us to become stronger and to draw closer to God. You just need to remember that everyone goes through hard times and God has good, prospering intentions, never to harm you; Jeremiah 29:11.
So what I want you to get out of this is that even though we go through hard times, God will never leave you because He loves you, it will make you stronger, the night will become day, there are people that will support you, and you are never ALONE. I want to encourage you to talk to Amanda, Ollie or your DC leader about any problems, as we are here to help! We will not judge, we want to support you and love on you so don’t feel embarrassed about talking to someone. Have a great week everyone!
