Only one thing will ultimately bring you peace. He's already completed His part, now it's up to you.
Only the Holy Spirit can help you "long term" with your sinning.
Surrender and accept Jesus into your life and allow the Spirit to begin working in you to help you with those “things” you can’t seem to let go of on your own.
Sanctification isn’t an overnight process, but one that will last until you meet our Lord and Savior in the end.
So, take heart, God knows your struggles here on earth:
“Each time he said, ‘My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.’ So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.” (2 Corinthians 12:9)
The pastoral answer (he mentions in the end) is when tragedy hits us, it hurts. Sometimes so much so that we feel like we can't go on. But, know that the Lord is there to help us through it. He knows how you feel. He really does, because He himself came down and became human through Jesus.
Pray and even "yell" if you need to! God knows your pain. Let Him in and let Him help.
This was awesome. God bless her for using that platform to share His glory!
Regardless of how much you love your spouse, or you have had broken relationships in the past, your FIRST priority in this life is clear. Jesus. All else will take care of itself.
"Jesus replied, “You are mistaken because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God. In the resurrection, people will neither marry nor be given in marriage. Instead, they will be like the angels in heaven. But concerning the resurrection of the dead, have you not read what God said to you: ‘I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob?’ He is not the God of the dead, but of the living.” (Matthew 22:29-32)
"Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life" (John 5:24)
" Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight." (Proverbs 3:5-6)
In this world we will experience suffering. Will it draw you away from god or closer to him? I pray closer.
