Have you ever had a perfect day where everything is going smoothly and you are having a wonderful time but then five seconds later everything turns upside down and you feel like you got punched in the gut and can't breathe?? Its like life throws a curve ball at you and you never saw it coming. You weren't ready for it and when it hit you you got knocked out and weren't sure if you would be able to stand back up.
LIfe is often like this. Just when it gets going well it come back around and smacks you in the face. It leaves you broken hearted, lonely, confused, and often desperate for something...that something is God. We cannot do anything without Him. We may think we can and we probably could for a short-term but long-term we would have a pretty rotten, dirty, and unproductive life without God pulling us through. So sometimes God as the pitcher needs to throw a fast curve ball at us to knock us off our feet and get out attention to let us know that we have been ignoring Him and living life without Him.
So if you are in that kind of rutt in the road and sitting there searching for something...turn to God. He is the only one who can fill your needs and the only one you can lean on who won't dissapoint you. He created you so i'm sure He knows how you are are feeling.
There is a song that i have listened to over and over and over again when i'm down or depressed and it feels like no one is there for me.
Here is the first verse and chorus:
How long must I pray / Must i pray to you / How long must i wait / Must i wait for you / How long till i see your face / See you shining through / I'm on my knees / begging you to notice me? / I'm on my knees / Father will you turn to me?
One tear in the driving rain / One voice in a sea of pain / could the make of the stars / hear the sound of my breaking heart / One life that's all I am / Right now i can barely stand / If you're everything you say you are / would you come close and hold my heart?
God is holding you heart! Run to him and He will set you on the right track and be with you until the end.
