“That’s exactly what Jesus did. He didn’t make it easy for himself by avoiding people’s troubles, but waded right in and helped out. “I took on the troubles of the troubled,” is the way Scripture puts it. Even if it was written in Scripture long ago, you can be sure it’s written for us. God wants the combination of his steady, constant calling and warm, personal counsel in Scripture to come to characterize us, keeping us alert for whatever he will do next. May our dependably steady and warmly personal God develop maturity in you so that you get along with each other as well as Jesus gets along with us all. Then we’ll be a choir—not our voices only, but our very lives singing in harmony in a stunning anthem to the God and Father of our Master Jesus!” Romans 15:3-6 The Message.

Do you tend to avoid problems?

Jesus didn’t avoid problems. He took on the troubles of the troubled. He is steady and constant and calls us to be like Him.  He makes you and I mature through going through difficult things with us.  It is in the tests, that we get our testimonies.

You know, there is probably not a mom out there who has not felt the pressures of daily life. There have probably been moments when you felt like the worst mom in the world. You got angry and frustrated and acted out of that frustration. You slammed a door or you said an unkind word.  Okay, you made mistakes, right?

Well here’s the good news. Jesus Christ died for your sins and your sin nature. He cleanses you and then He makes you like Him.  He uses your imperfections to draw you to Himself.  So, stop fighting and turn desperately and completely to God.  He will help you overcome every problem and in the process He will make you into an overcomer.
