I never really realized how hard it is to try to do things on your own! Often in life I try so hard to solve my own problems and issues the way I think they should be solved, but I forget I am ignoring someone vital! My heart and mind are stubborn, I want to do everything on my own and asking help is my last resort! I have come to understand I am nothing without God, I can do nothing without Him by my side! Spending your whole life trying to fix things on your own is not the answer, seek GOD!!! The Lord states in Jeremiah 29:11,"I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." This is proof that He has the ultimate plan, call to Him and He will answer. It does not matter what you have done! Whether you have or are using drugs, or if you have lost your purity, it does not matter your sin God accepts everyone and answers all who call! In conclusion God will ease your pain all you have to do is ask Him!

I have found that in life it is hard to find satisfaction. No matter what you have accomplished you still can not seem to find joy or happiness. I constantly realize that with everything that goes on in my life joy almost always seems to leak out. I am not saying that I lack happiness or am in a state of depression but that all the good things in life are only temporary. I come to the realization that there is one thing that remains constant and brings instant joy into your heart and that is Christ. People go to youth group at church just to see friends and not expecting to experience any spiritual moment. Then the music sounds, God and His angels enter the room through the songs giving you an overwhelming feeling. At this moment joy is existent God is in you and life's pain just fades away. I give the analogy of worship not to say that it is the only source of joy but i bring it up as a supporting factor that through God joy is constant in your life. This world has nothing for us, nothing to satisfy our sinful hearts but God's mere presence can bring overwhelming satisfaction. I challenge all readers to stop looking for satisfaction in this world and look upon Christ for he satisfies every craving.

My mind is always full of doubts. I constantly wonder why would I ask God for that He won't answer. The Lord definitely has proved me wrong over the years. As a little kid I had a head injury that limited me a great amount. I could not play sports I thought I would never be worth a thing, until I asked Him. I prayed to God asking, "Lord please allow me to be able to do sports and have fun?" I presented this question with many doubts not knowing if He would answer or even hear my prayers. The next week my doctor cleared me and allowed me to become an athlete. I tell you this story to show you that Christ really does hear and answer prayers. All you have to do is ask Him!
