Keep your heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.
We have so many things that turn our lives up side down and inside out. We must make sure that what is going on in our personal lives do not ride on our shoulders for all to see. This is where we trade our burdens with the Lord and carry His message beyond all circumstance in life.
When you and I take on the responsibility to carry the Gospel of Jesus to the world. We do not have the luxury of being emotional and unstable in the sight of new converts.
Just as your job expects you to be able to separate work and home. It might be just as important to the cause of faith that we do not allow our home lives to leak into our example of faith before the brethren.
We are representatives of Jesus and we should know that He will not allow your burdens to overtake you, but most of us have a problem with surrendering all to the Lord, and that is why we end up suffering a bit longer.
It is not about pretending things don’t affect you. It is about what is most important to the message that we want to give to the people of God who look to us as examples of modeling true faith in Christ.
Your struggle is a witness to those who see the evidence hardship, and they learn to stand strong when you stand strong and wait upon the Lord for yourself.
A women who feels neglected by her husband, can show others how to endure that hardship and not display unsettling emotions to cause another to stumble in their walk of faith.
There is no pretense here saints, it is only about being strong and relying upon the will of the Lord to carry you through. We show others that we donot give into the whiles of the enemy who only wants to throw you and I off our stance.
When you can do nothing else, you stand, you wait and you trust the Lord. You don’t try and fix a broken situation from your point of view. You let God give you the right words and actions to take. So, it doesn’t fall on you.
The one thing I don’t want to happen, is my opinion comes in place of God’s Word.
