Give Everything To Jesus
WELCOME TO PASTOR DR. CARLOTTA'S COUNSELING CENTER.
Mediate on this: How much better is it to relax and give our life to God. This is one sure way to be able to deal with things in life much better. He is the ONLY one who can really make something beautiful out of it anyway. We can trust God not to take advantage of us when we release our life into His hands. He will guide us into the exact place where we can develop to our full potential. And the bonus is that we will have peace in our heart and a sense of fulfillment in our soul while it is all going on.
Oh, there will be problems! But when we have the basic agreement worked out between us and God, as to who the Boss is, it leaves us free to concentrate all of our God-given abilities on the challenges of life. There is no other life that even approaches that of having God as a Savior Partner!
"Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble. Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon Him; for he careth for you" I Peter 5:5,7.
God isn't afraid to exalt us when we are ready for it. That eliminates all the scratching and clawing we feel the successful person must do to climb the ladder of success. We don't sit around feeling frustrated because we aren't becoming the great earth shaker we envisioned ourselves becoming.
When we learn what God is teaching us, He will exalt us as we are able to handle it. This makes it possible to appreciate and enjoy what he gives us to the fullest extent. Paul wrote, "...Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him" I Corinthians 2:9. That isn't just talking about Heaven, It also includes the here and now.
Jesus said that God clothes the lilies of the field. Lilies never get-up-tight worrying about what color they should be or when to open their petals because God care for them. How much more will He care for us. So just relax. If we want to drive ourselves in searching for something, why not go for righteous, godliness, faith, love patience and meekness as Paul suggests above. If we want a good fight why not the good fight of faith
This my friends are how we should handle things better in our lives. Blessings.
