There a several major issues facing people everywhere in the day that we live in, and while I don’t pretend to have my finger on the pulse of all humanity I have been exposed to a relevant sample size in my day to day life as well as reading the results of studies others have performed and of course what we see on the news everyday.
To my point though, anxiety and depression…these two issues seem to cripple people on many levels whether it be in relationships or the workplace. These to issues seem to follow people and stick to them like a horrible adhesive that simply wont release. I am not ignorant to the fact that these are not the only issues people face, but I am aware that in my opinion they are linked deeply with many of the other issues.
The link is a lack of a true relationship with Jesus, And I mean a REAL relationship. Not the admittance that He exists but rather a daily walk with God. The Word of God provides the solution to the issues. One verse that I would reference is Philippians 4:7, “And the Peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
Basically as we get closer to Jesus, we find peace with the understanding that as we live according to His word, He will work on our behalf. I simply know this…I have heard far to many times about people giving up, whether it be giving up on marriages, giving up on friendships or giving up on life. Every person carries value and God has a plan for everyone, He really does, not matter what some may believe. And his plan is amazing and it brings peace that you cannot get elsewhere.
The truth is that when someone has a real encounter with Jesus, they are never the same. And the more you apply yourselves to His word and His plan the more you will see the evidence of His truth in your life!
Jesus is the answer, plain and simple.
