There are many people in the world today that feel alone and wish there was
someone they can talk to and who understands them. The good news is I know
of such a person. His name is Jesus Christ and He wishes to spend time
with everyone who calls upon His name. God knows you so well, the Bible
says in Jeremiah 1:5 "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before
you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations."
Never think you are alone or that nobody cares about you for the Bible
declares that Jesus is a friend that sticks closer than a brother. Simply
call upon His name and He will be there to answer. (Rev. 3:20) (Prov. 18:24)
I hope you will be encouraged by this message that shows when we get
frustrated with life's problems and don't know what else to do, we can
call upon our Heavenly Father and ask Him to hold and comfort us. Allow
this message to speak to your heart if you are going through some tough
situations and remember that God is only a prayer and call away from where
you are right now. (Psalm 55:16-18) (Psalm 91:14-16)
A little boy was helping his father move some books out of an attic into
more spacious quarters downstairs. It was important to this little boy
that he was helping his dad, even though he was probably getting in the way
and slowing things down more than he was actually assisting. But that boy
had a wise and patient father who knew it was more important to work at a
task with his young son than it was to move a pile of books efficiently.
Among this man's books, however, were some rather large study books, and it
was a chore for the boy to get them down the stairs. As a matter of fact,
on one particular load, the boy dropped his pile of books several times.
Finally, he sat down on the stairs and wept in frustration. He wasn't
doing any good at all. He wasn't strong enough to carry the big books down
a narrow stairway. It hurt him to think he couldn't do this for his daddy.
Without a word, the father picked up the dropped load of books, put them
into the boy's arms, and scooped up both the boy and the books into his
arms and carried them down the stairs. And so they continued load after
load, both very much enjoying each other's company. The boy carrying the
books, and the dad carrying the boy.

I don't believe God is impressed by the accomplishments we have achieved
and He does not judge us according to the number of goals we have attained,
but rather God looks at each person as His own precious child whom He loves
regardless of their stature by today's living standard. Be encouraged and
know that God loves you just the way you are and He cares for you more
than you will probably ever know.
I want you to be encouraged and know that God is not some being in heaven
that is waiting to strike you down, but rather when you fall and get
frustrated with life's problems, He is the one who comes to lift you up
and hold you in His arms. God is a loving Father and wishes to calm and
deliver every person from their heartaches, but we must recognize that we
are not perfect and need to call on the Lord and ask Him to carry us when
we are not able to carry ourselves.
Read and meditate on these scriptures:
Psalm 142:5-7 "I cried out to You, O Lord: I said, "You are my refuge, My
portion in the land of the living. Attend to my cry, For I am brought very
low; Deliver me from my persecutors, For they are stronger than I. Bring
my soul out of prison, That I may praise Your name; The righteous shall
surround me, For You shall deal bountifully with me."
Psalm 139:7-10 "Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from
Your presence? If I ascend into heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in
hell, behold, You are there. If I take the wings of the morning, And dwell
in the uttermost parts of the sea, Even there Your hand shall lead me, And
Your right hand shall hold me."
Isaiah 40:29-31 "He gives power to the weak, And to those who have no might
He increases strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, And the
young men shall utterly fall, But those who wait on the Lord Shall renew
their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run
and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint."
Psalm 121:1-5 "I will lift up my eyes to the hills-From whence comes my
help? My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth. He will not
allow your foot to be moved; He who keeps you will not slumber. Behold,
He who keeps Israel Shall neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord is your
keeper; The Lord is your shade at your right hand."
