Tired of life struggles? Time to let someone else take the lead of your life!

  • Tired of life struggles? Time to let someone else take the lead of your life!

I was watching this video from the Not Ashamed of the Gospel website and it spoke to my heart because of the troubles and sorrows that the people are going through in this video. Many times we do feel a bit lost, insecure, and discouraged about our faith and we question if there is a God. I mean with all the troubles that many of us are exposed to when can we ever sit down and think about a “God” that could saved us?

Most of the time we are so much into our own troubles that we don’t look outside the box to look for help. We are so overwhelmed about our failures that there is no time to seek for divine help! Specially if there are people who have been blessed and don’t really struggle in life. Family and relationships are good, financials are great….why should they look for a creator?

Freedom in Christ

5 So Christ has truly set us free. Now make sure that you stay free, and don’t get tied up again in slavery to the law.
Galatians 5:1
New Living Translation (NLT)


Well there are millions of people who have some type of struggle in their life. It could be either relationship, financially, spiritually, or addictions. We carry so many burdens that we get to a point that we just can’t handle the load anymore and we look into a quick way out not taking into consideration the people around us that we might be hurting.

Have you ever felt the need to just scream your heart out and let your pain vanish?

There are people who use drugs, alcohol, and or are addicted to porn, adultery, prostitution and use this as their “way out”. The truth is that there is no way out! What you are feeling is a temporary pain reliever that makes you forget and not care about the problems you are dealing with. The problems are not going away, they are getting worst. Basically what is happening is that we are digging ourselves into a hole with no way out.

Is it worth living a life-like this?

So much pain and suffering that we don’t even look around to see who else is getting hurt by our actions. How about our families and friends? Many ask themselves when am I ever going to find that special someone in my life? Everyone gets a perfect match that we end up marrying but in the time we are waiting we often ask “where is that best friend of mine that I’m supposed to share my life with?” When is that person ever coming into our lives so we could stop hurting ourselves and be happy once and for all?

For how long can we continue punishing ourselves?

Many of us who get wrapped around depression, or any other type of addictions, are not looking at the future. We always either don’t think of the outcome, or we “think” we could stop at any time just to find out that we are on a one way trip to a very dark, lonely and painful side of life.

When is good enough?

Maybe we could just drink a little bit more, take just another look at the screen, intake some more of those pills, buy some more of that drugs, stay away from people just a little bit longer….until when? until we have set an example for people around us that now they also will feel drawn into this type of life?

Is there a way out?

There is one way out and that is accepting our mistakes and giving our burdens away to someone who is able to fixed the problems and cure them all.

But How?

  • First acknowledge the problem
  • Commit to a change
  • Trust on the solution
  • and don’t look back

Confront the problem

Dig deep into your heart and soul and find that one problem in your life that makes you stumble that could include but are not limited to:

  1. Drugs
  2. Lust
  3. Prostitution
  4. Gambling
  5. Depression
  6. Forgiving
  7. Cutting yourself
  8. Alcohol
  9. Pornography
  10. Sex
  11. Gossiping
  12. Anger Management
  13. Profanity

Commit to a change!

Now that you already know what kind of problem you have, we must commit to be victorious over it. It is not going to be easy, actually to tell you the truth, it will be very hard and maybe impossible for some that are trying to deal with the problem themselves. We must let someone else drive the vehicle and we must trust that He is a good driver and knows what are the best options and roads for us to take.

Trust and you’ll be in good hands

But why should we let someone else guide our lives? Maybe we don’t work well following a guideline or rules! Some people don’t like to feel that they are not in control. Sometimes we must let go of that power to let others guide our life. This is where trust and faith comes into place. If everything else in our life has not worked out, then what do we have to lose?

Many years ago, a heavenly being made a wonderful creation. He created a man and also from him, He created a woman to be his companion. There was a single sin that changed the plan and they both were send here to suffer the consequences of their mistake. Does it sound familiar? We are not the only ones that make bad decisions. So what can we do? Well more than 2K years ago there was a Man send down from heaven that was born as any of us. He died for our sins and is now seated next to the Father, the creator, waiting for us to give Him a chance to work in our lives. All we need to do is let Him be the driver. Let Him show us the love and affection that we are to give and show others.  As soon as we declare that we do believe in Him, all of our sins will be wiped off and forgiven.

Are you ready for a change? Are you ready to change your life to a better and brighter future?

Has this message touched you in any way? Maybe you don’t know the Lord yet and are struggling with all kinds of different problems or addictions and today you felt that you would like to know more about our God? Or, maybe you need prayer support and are in need to have wonderful brothers and sister in Christ praying for your needs? Let us help you and guide you where to look for these resources.

Follow Christ

Jesus Christ is waiting for an invitation to come into your life. In fact, he says,

“Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in”
Revelation 3:20


Prayer Support

Are you in any need of prayer? Are troubles in your life or relationship bringing you down?

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.
Philippians 4:6
New Living Translation (NLT)
