Stand Up

There was a time in my life, a time where I didn't think I had the energy to do anything. I was weak both in body and in spirit. I was not with the Lord and all my problems seemed to grow even more. Each one of us is going to find ourselves in that time and place, we're going to feel like just sitting around all day, not wanting to get a single thing done.

We are going to feel like life doesn't matter to us, we're going to reach bottom. That doesn't mean we give up. We must stand up and take notice of the Lord, we can't live apart from him and when we try to do, well we all know the answer to that.

Jesus can only do so much in our lives, when we follow him and give ourselves to him, the things around us which we thought were so hard will seem so easy. It seems silly, but it's true. When we let our guard down and give in to everything that the world has to offer, we will only fail.

We need Jesus each and every part of our day, it is his word, his presence that makes us strong. Just going to church once a week is not good enough. The devil is very cunning and looking for everyway to reach into our lives and take control. He will find his way in and then it's usually too late, but with Jesus it's never too late.

So stand up, dust yourselves off. Grab that Bible and read his word, talk to him and give your every waking minute to him. Show him how much he means to you in your life and when you do, you will see greater rewards than you could truly imagine.

Jesus really does love you, he wants to see you doing well. Even when you are down, feeling blue he is still there knocking at your door and trying to get in. Don't shut him out, open the door and let him in.

If you stand up and open your eyes to the wonders of the Lord, then you will see your problems disappear. It's as simple as that! It's taking the iniative and starting is what most people fail to do.

If at first you can't succeed, try try again. The Lord knows it's not easy, but he's there each and everytime you come back. Never give up on the Lord, he won't give up on you.
