Every time I see my own faults, weaknesses, and imperfections, I look at Jesus and see a more perfect Lord.
Too many times when our hearts are troubled, we try to resolve the problem on our own. I hear people say that it's not a big thing and I don't want to bother God. Could this be just a pretense put up to hide the unwillingness to get God involved? I now see that if I profess to trust in God, I must include him in everything I do and at all levels. In fact, anytime my heart is troubled, the first thing I should do is to run to him without hesitation, asking for understanding, guidance, and healing. Dwelling on the trouble by myself still shows the presence of pride. I see a great example in Jesus going through the agony in the garden, at the same time praying to the Father. May God free us completely.
