When your kids rebel.
When the doctor gives a bad report.
When your boyfriend breaks up or your husband wants a divorce.
Is Christ your first call or last call?
Truth be known, my life was a wreck, but I thought I could fix it. I didn’t want to ask God for help because I thought His answer would be too
That’s how I viewed a Christian life. Full of rules and restrictions, a long list of things I couldn’t do.
Asking God for help was the last thing I wanted to do.
I could fix things. Patch things up. Self-medicating my pain with shopping, drinking and relationships may only give temporary relief, but it would be much better than a life in a prison of rules.
Until I got to my last call.
I tried everything in my own strength before I was willing to ask for help, but at the end of options, God was the only answer. Desperation led me to Him, but mercy made me stay.
