Be Quick to Pray - July 29, 2020

How do you handle your tough times?  When you’re tired of trying, tired of forgiving, tired of hard weeks or hard-headed people how do you manage your dark days?  With a bottle of pills?  Alcohol?  A day at the spa?  Many opt for such treatments.  So many, in fact, we assume they reenergize the sad life.  But do they?  They numb the pain, but do they remove it?

We, like sheep, follow each other off the ledge, falling headlong into bars and binges and beds. Is there a better solution?  Indeed there is.  Be quick to pray.  Talk to Christ who invites, “Are you tired?  Worn out?  Burned out?  Come to Me.  Get away with Me and you’ll recover your life.”  Jesus says, “I will show you how to take a real rest” (Matthew 11:28-30 The Message).  You see God who is never downcast, never tires of your down days, just go to Him.
