Today was a day… We all have had those days. You know those days when nothing is going right. The days when you try to fix it, and it gets worse….. Jesus Cristo help.. On my way home this evening all I could think was the ways to make everything right that I messed up. This list included but is not limited to: go to happy hour, text a random guy, call my mom, and eating a piece of cake, and apologizing to everyone that I upset (which I still might do). But I settled after exhausting my list of things I knew wouldn’t work and would only make it worse. This was when God began to speak to me.
Yesterday in bible study, (shout out to Freedom Fellowship) we were going through the book of John. Towards the end of chapter 6, some people turn away from Jesus after he gave “a hard teaching.” Jesus then turns to the 12 disciples and asks them are they leaving him as well. Peter responds to Jesus in verses 68 and 69 “Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. We have come to believe and to know that you are the Holy One of God.”
God reminded me of this, and it hit me like a stack of bricks. There’s nowhere else to turn but Jesus. Where else can I go to get the solace that I need? This verse holds so much weight in my personal life. Several times over the past year I’ve wanted to give up and walk away from Jesus then I think but where else am I going to go? There’s no one or thing that has been consistent like Jesus.
This verse holds so much weight in my life; I can’t seem to express what it means to me in words. I honestly want to worship God/Jesus when I think about how there’s nowhere else for me to turn.
God is amazing y’all… too amazing to put in words.
