How You'll Make It

You are asking, how did it come to this?  How do I get out of this painful place?  You’re thinking, I don’t see how it’s possible.

I know this may sound cliché, but I strongly recommend that you talk to God.  Ask God for help.  What do you have to lose?  The times when I was in this place, I felt that there’s nothing left I can do and so, I talk to God.  If only people know how practical this is (and more than just a cliche.)

As you continuously talk to God, you will realize more and more of what you can do.  Then, you need to do your part.  If you don’t know what you can do, you should keep asking God for guidance and you need to keep establishing a relationship with Him.  As you establish a father-child relationship with God, start doing what you can do and God will do what you can’t do.  He will control what you can’t control.  As you go on with this, the sun will rise.

The sun is rising.

In an upcoming blog entry, I will show you something else you can do to get you to where you want to be or need to be.
