Get up, and Get it together..
Today I met this young man, lying in the bus stop, but I knew he wasn’t headed to a destination. His clothes were dirty, dirty, his clothes were dirty, and he held his pants in his hand, getting closer, I recognized the young man.
I recollect meeting him in college and we became acquainted, we were about the same age, but today he was different, face painted in mud, reconstructed, and lost some weight. He didn’t seem like the young, ambitious man I knew back then. So sitting down, asked him what was going on, and expressed his deepest regrets as he told me his story. He didn’t have anyone ,a loner often found in the hands of the law, searching for love but never seemed to find it, had no job, no money, no one he could talk to.
He had goals, he had plans, started college but never finished, he started well but somehow he lost his way, and he was struggling to get back, blamed it all on not having a home, a family.
So many of us today are going through struggles if not like that young man but we are facing a challenge in our lives and we just need someone to talk to, we need help, we need deliverance. Well Jesus is there, and He says to cast ALL your cares upon Him for He cares for you, He can carry your load today, he will listen to your problems and He is able to solve them.
I wish I could have provided that man with a job, but all I could was encourage him to get up from where he was, get himself together and ask God to help him. I encourage you you to do the same, Get up, Get yourself together and ask the Saviour to help you. For with God nothing shall be impossible, but you need to make that first step!!!
