Before I came to the Lord Jesus and asked Him to be the Lord of my life, I was trying to live my own life. I did not know what was ahead of me. I made plans, but I was not sure they would work. I felt as if I was in a dark forest, stumbling, and trying to find my way. There was no pathway. I did not know where I was going. I made great plans for my life and plotted my path, only to find I was going in the wrong direction. Sometimes the path was smooth and I was happy my life was going well. Then suddenly, a big problem would come. I would fall into a deep hole and cry out, not knowing how to get out. Or the path would get rough. I would feel weak and tired, just trying to live day by day.
Whenever I fell, I struggled to get up. I had no idea where my life was taking me or how long my journey will be. I had a lot of questions, but no answers. Often I felt completely lost in the dark forest of my life. I thought my life was meaningless. I would cry in despair, “Is there anyone to help me?”
Do you feel like this in your life, my Friend? Do not worry or fear. There is someone waiting to help you. His name is Lord Jesus! Come to Him!! Bible tells us: “The Lord Jesus is the true Light who gives light to every person.” John 1:9.
Prayer: “Lord Jesus, please take me out of the darkness I am in and bring me into your light, I pray.”
