God With Us

I admit I don’t have life figured out.  Many times I get stressed in relationships, parenting, as a husband, as a pastor, with my finances and/or in leadership.  What’s more, most of the times I find myself trying to figure out how to get un-stressed on my own.  This is an issue, a real issue and many of us do the same thing (just like me).  We try to use the same wisdom that got us stressed out in so many areas of our life to get us un-stressed.  That doesn’t work.  The second Law of Thermodynamics confirms it:

  • “The second law of thermodynamics states that the total entropy of an isolated system always increases over time…”

What does that mean?  If left to myself I will not get better over time, I will get worse.  I need OUTSIDE help to get better, to improve, to get past my stressful life issues.  This is why the Christmas Story is so powerful.  WE NEED HELP!  I NEED HELP! and I have it in Jesus Christ!

  • Matthew 1:23 (NLT) – “Look! The virgin will conceive a child! She will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel, which means ‘God is with us.’”

So go ahead and call out to Jesus today.  He is with us!  He wants to help us!  Are you open to Him and His help?  Are you willing to submit to His leading in your life?  It’s really a choice, keeping trying to fix your issues on your own or call out for the Help that Jesus offers.
