Smiling When Life Gets Messy :)

 

Sometimes it all gets a little too much. ~ Shawn Mendes

I listen to practically no pop music, but A Little Too Much by Shawn Mendes just came to mind as I started this post.

We all know that life can get pretty crazy and messy at times. We all have those days (or weeks) where we feel worn down, overwhelmed, and the like.  We want to sit around and feel sorry for ourselves, against our better judgement.

My question for you is this: when life gets messy, crazy, etc, does God want us sitting around feeling sorry for ourselves?

I don’t think so. Many times in the Bible God tells us and His people tell Him that they are turning to Him when their hearts feel overwhelmed. Here are a few I LOVE:

{ Psalm 61:2 } From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed, lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

{ 1 Peter 5:6 } cast your cares on the Lord, for He cares for you.

Life { i s } messy. The sooner we realize that the better off we will be. But what you do with that realization is another story. You have a choice.You can realize life is messy and choose to turn to jesus and keep your head up when you face messy days,  smiling and remembering all of God’s wonderful promises to you. Or, you can let those days get you down and catch you off guard.

We can know that we all have messy days and it’s normal. But it’s what you do and how you react to those days that truly matters. It’s something that i am still learning day by day, step by step.

Keep smiling. Messy days happen, but God’s promises remain. YOU ARE LOVED. YOU ARE SO PRICELESS THAT JESUS THOUGHT YOU WERE TO DIE FOR. THE KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS LIVES WITHIN YOU. YOU HAVE A LIVING HOPE. ❤ Live loved, precious people.
