This Too Shall Pass

JER 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

I remember sitting in an AA meeting right after my whole life had caved in and on the wall was this little sign that said, "This Too Shall Pass". I thought, "Ya, right!", I was in so much trouble it wasn't even funny, and I thought there was no way things could ever be fixed or made normal again. I was even thinking about just ending it all with suicide because things had become too unmanageable and too unrepairable to go on living or even trying anymore.

PHP 4:6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

I just want you to know today that no matter how messed up you life has become it can be fixed and made right again with God's help. Things may be very impossible for you right now to ever turn around, but God created this whole universe and He can sure fix your life if you will let Him. God just wants you to see that your way won't work, and His way will. Give your impossible mess to Him today, and you will see that even this too can and shall pass.

LK 18:27 Jesus replied, "What is impossible with men is possible with God."
