“Trust in him at all times, O people.Before him pour out your heart.God is a refuge for us.”– Psalm 62:8
Sometimes life can be too much. Problems from every corner invade us like enemy missiles aimed toward us. They disrupt our peace and our joy of living. They become like a heavy load that is impossible to carry.We feel suffocated and we don’t know what to do. We run to our friends for comfort or get psychiatric help, but still, our problems persist. They drive us crazy, they turn us insane. Too much! We irrationally decide that we have lost all hopes, that it’s useless to go on living. We want to end it all.
Many find themselves immersed in such situation and it’s hard to get themselves out of it. But if they make a persistent effort to fight and strengthen their will to live, they will come to be survivors. One way to help themselves is to run to the most reliable Counselor in the universe, just like what the Scripture above shows us. Indeed, trusting in Him at all times and pouring out our hearts to Him can get us into a refuge where we feel secure and unharmed by whatever enemy invasions designed to destroy us.
Even when we are not at all in the thick of such situation, we can always prevent ourselves from getting into it by heeding the psalmist’s message. We should make God our refuge by always trusting in Him and pouring our hearts to Him. He is the only one who can perfectly keep us away from harm and can give us LIFE.
