Can You Be Positive Without God?
There are definitely positive people out there that do not believe in God. But what about the times that bring them down? What do they hold on to? How do they get through the storm with their positive thinking intact? Most of them do not.
God is the light that shines when all else is dark. You may not believe me but it is true. When I first left my ex-husband, I hated when night time came. I would become afraid, I didn’t want to be by myself, and I didn’t want to go to sleep. The thought of closing my eyes terrified me. Every single night, I had horrible night mares. The kind where you wake up sweating, shaking, crying and too afraid to go back to sleep. These nightmares plagued me for over 2 years. Just the thought of having another nightmare would scare me. I had to learn to let go. I learned that God was right there with me, all I had to do was ask for help. Once I realized that, yes the nightmares are scary, but that they are just nightmares, they stopped. I needed God to intervene in the middle of my storm, to help set my sails in the right direction. Fear had overwhelmed me and driven me off course. God came to set me free.
What in your life is holding you back from experiencing the joy that God wants you to have? Do you feel like you are drowning in a situation that never seems to end? Are you having a hard time making a decision about which way to go in life? Let God be the one who helps you. Let him wrap his arms around you and hold you, so that you can have rest.
“Come to me, all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” (Mathew 11:28)
“Jesus looked at them and said, ‘With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.'” (Mark 10:27)
Pray. Tell God that you are tired. That you need him so that you can rest. He will be there for you and guide you in the right direction, if you just listen. He is strong when we are weak. Run to him. Hold nothing back. Fall on your knees and cry if you need to. God will cherish every tear that falls.
