With or Without

WITHOUT GOD…….. We are lost. Life makes no sense. Life has no meaning. We’re wandering pilgrims trying to find our place of rest. We’re confused, in despair. We have no peace. No joy. No hope. No purpose. We’re empty, worthless, fighting against the wind. We’re dead men walking, blinded from the truth. We’re held captive.

BUT WITH GOD……. Ahh! Yes! Life makes sense……it all makes sense! Life has meaning because we know where we belong. Our restless souls finally find rest (Matt. 11:28). We have peace that exceeds the world’s understanding (Phil. 4:7). We have indescribable joy! We have unlimited protection and unlimited support. We have hope and a purpose. We’re complete! We’re whole, and we live an abundant life.

Having a Heavenly Father who loves us totally and completely makes the difference in whatever we face in life. God is the only One who adds through subtraction! He makes little into much (Luke 9:13-17)! Oh, what a God!!

Maybe you have tried to do this “life” thing on your own. Possibly, you keep trying to live this life without the Creator, without God. Perhaps, you keep trying to do it on your own, but your attempts keep failing. My sisters, you’re not made to live this life alone. We weren’t made to do this on our own-by ourselves-without God. When we try to do things on our own, we end up making things worst.

Isn’t it about time to give the Creator a try? Isn’t it time to try God? Isn’t it time to trust Him? Let’s stop trying, but start trusting! Give God a try! Let’s run to Him because our life depends on it!

“Open your mouth and taste, open your eyes and see- how good God is. Blessed are you who run to him.” (Psalm 34:8, MSG)
