Have you ever felt this way? No matter what you do, no matter how hard you try, it just seems that you can’t win in life? Sometimes it feels like you just get an edge up and get knocked down again? When it rains it pours!
Now the critical question, have you turned away from God? I’m not saying that God is taking His revenge on you. God doesn’t take revenge on anyone. But are you trying to get through life all on your own?
I ran into a friend last week and he told me of so many things that had gone wrong for him. He said, “Just when I think I can get ahead, something else goes wrong. I don’t get it, what am I doing wrong?” He seemed so beaten down by life. I told him, “Come back to God. What your doing isn’t working. God is waiting for you to come back. If you turn back to Him, He will bless you and your life. That doesn’t mean you will never have any problems but things go better with God in your life. Let Him guide you instead of trying to do it all on your own.” He said, “That makes so much sense.”
God is waiting with open arms for us to come back to Him. When we come back to the Sacraments to replenish our Grace, life goes so much better.
I heard someone say one time, “If you aren’t going toward God, you are going away from God. There’s nothing in the middle.” Which way are you going??
