I’m sure you have watched some of the TV series on HGTV or DIY Network; series like Bath Crushers, Kitchen Changers, Yard-Fix-R-Uppers. It seems new television series try to show us that our taste in decor is so bad that someone or a team of someone’s must come into your home and smash everything to pieces. Worse yet, we sign up for these shows and seem to welcome the criticism! By the way, what if you hated the new style? Would you be in transparent in front of the cameras and say “This stinks!” or would you smile; silently screaming?
We do the same thing in our daily walk along our live path. We desperately try to change the outside of us; buying new shoes or new clothes, buying the best new gadget or a grand house or new car. We want the best, but, nothing seems to fill our inner needs. When we finally become frustrated with our-self, we seem to welcome criticism from the World and listen to the whisperings of the evil one. The devil tells us that we don’t deserve salvation and we must work to make our-selves perfect.
Over two thousand years age, Jesus came to live in this World of ours. He also listened to the whispers of the devil, although he never sinned, he was exposed to the constant bombarding of His senses from the “people of the World”. He understands our anger, bitterness, resentment, fear, worry, guilt, jealousy and inferiority. Jesus stayed in the Word and He knew the Truth. He alone knows your pain, your sadness or your feelings of betrayal. You can be transparent in front of Jesus, showing Him your true self. You do not have to silently scream asking why, why, why? You do not have to be alone while saying: This life of mine needs help.
Jesus can take whatever you throw at Him. He welcomes you – He welcomes all of you
Whisper His name – Cry out His name – Shout out His name – In Faith – That is His only requirement in Doing-It-Yourself.
Jesus will take care of the rest!
Psalm 56:11-13: Fearless now, I trust in God; what can mere mortals do to me? God, You did everything You promised, and I’m thanking You with all my heart. You pulled me from the brink of death, my feet from the cliff-edge of doom. Now I stroll at leisure with God in the sunlit fields of life. (The Message)
