When Your World Falls Apart

In the past few days, my world has fallen apart. Completely collapsed. And I’m a disaster. All of a sudden, everything is crashing down around me, and I’m questioning everything I thought I knew. With a single conversation, everything has changed, and I have no idea what to do now.

So what do you do when your world falls apart? How do you handle that? I wasn’t sure. It’s not like this hasn’t happened before; I should have some sort of magic formula by now, right? Unfortunately, there is no magic formula. But we have something better. We have a great Savior Who loves us unconditionally. No matter what that guy said to you, no matter what that girl did to you, He’s always there, a solid Rock to run to when you can’t do life anymore. He’s there when I can’t do life anymore.

I’m ashamed to admit how often I forget about my solid Rock. I run to other people, and while there’s nothing wrong with getting human counsel, I prioritize it over getting counsel from the Creator. How messed up is that? I’d rather get advice from a flawed human being than from the perfect God of all creation. It sounds so stupid, but I do it so often. What is wrong with me?

I was reminded at church tonight of just how much I am loved, not because of me, but in spite of me. He doesn’t love me because of what I’ve done for Him or how often I talk to Him. Heaven knows I’ve failed Him more times than I could ever count. But He loves me because I’m His child, and it’s Who He is. Crazy.

So what do you do when your world falls apart? Run. Run to the One Who made you, Who loves you, Who died for you. (And by all means, find some solid human counsel. I wouldn’t still be standing without the people who hold me together. You know who you are, and I love you for standing by me.)

It is well, it is well!
Through the storm, I am held;
It is well, it is well with my soul!
It is well, it is well!
God has won, Christ prevailed!
It is well, it is well with my soul!

    Romans 5:8But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. I feel the same way and I had a thought that if Christ loved us when we didn’t want anything to do with him. If! He loved us then, how much more does He Love us now that we are saved by His blood. That is Love! Wow! God Bless you !
