Turn to your neighbor and say let the oil flow let it flow. Have you ever been in a place in your life when you ask why? Only to bring more pain? Because the answers are as fleeting as the understanding of why people have to leave you or why you got fired or why people have to disappoint you or betray you or abandon you or reject you. And why life has to be so trying and so difficult and so hard and so unpredictable and so frustrating? Life has way of happening. And the unexpected, well, the unexpected just happens. Nothing that we can always prepare ourselves for, especially when it comes to death and dying or loss cause the greatest amount of pain. But the bible say blessed are those that morn for they shall be comforted.
Sometimes it feels like no matter how much you play, how much you fast, life like a stream of strong current, like a river that sweeps us away by the crisis moments that threaten to override our faith and drown us in the deepest despair. Its usually at that time that God is trying to get your attention. Life has the power to beat even the strongest of us down.
And like a heavy weight champion in a boxing match. We are often convinced that we are down for the count. We feel the pain and the devastation that runs so deep that our very soul begins to ake. Have you ever been in a position where you prayed and the prayers don’t seem like they are being answered? Have you been so deep in dispear and depression, that your dispear and depression becomes your companion? have you ever been betrayed or rejected to the point where you felt like giving up? Not to the point of committing suicide, you just wanted to tap out of life. You wanted the pain to stop you wanted the frustration to go away. And people when they tried to come to you to console you created more pain because the pain just drove a little deeper because your felt as if God was not going to come to you.
