Do you ever feel like you are “in over your head”? You are afraid you will be asked to do something you aren’t prepared to do, or asked a question for which you have no answer? When you need to talk to someone about a problem, if you’re like me you would rather talk to someone who has been there done that! I have a few things my life resume´: I can now fully feel your sorrow if you have lost a loved one, I know the pain of divorce or being a single parent, I know the hurt when you have been rejected by people you trusted for whatever reason, have had times when you didn’t know how your next bill would be paid or if you’ve been wakened in the middle of the night with nightmares so real you are on your feet without knowing how you got there, however there are many things you may be facing I have no knowledge of except hearing it from you. Some of those things would be if you have an abusive spouse, drug or alcohol addicted partners or maybe you have the addiction problem yourself and many other things that I have never experienced, so where do you turn when you really need the friend that knows it all?
I have the answer to that, it is found in Hebrews 4: 14-16 “Now that we know what we have—Jesus, this great High Priest with ready access to God—let’s not let it slip through our fingers. We don’t have a priest who is out of touch with our reality. He’s been through weakness and testing, experienced it all—all but the sin. So let’s walk right up to him and get what he is so ready to give. Take the mercy, accept the help.” Yep you guessed it, it is my friend the old hymn speaks of, “What a friend we have in Jesus, all our sins and grief’s to bear! What a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer! O what peace we often forfeit, O what needless pain we bear, all because we do not carry everything to God in prayer.”
If you can’t talk to me or anyone else, you can go to Him and you can make it, I’m sure of it!
