Have you ever been through a crazy situation and thought there is no way out of this? You have your back against the wall, nowhere to run, or no one to turn to. If so, you are not alone. Many people, myself included, have had moments where we feel like we are lost in the wilderness. We have our backs against the wall and going through different situations and scenarios with no possible way to escape. Some of us feel overwhelmed with what’s going on in our lives; from appointments, classes, and careers we just can’t seem to find a moment to calm ourselves down, and realize that the God who created us all has got all of our problems under control!
Just recently, I finally finished my Drivers Ed course at the local Human Resources center in my town. I passed with flying colors and managed to get the paperwork to get my drivers license at 22. Now I know what you are thinking, “You waited this long to get your drivers license”? To answer your question, yes I did. I have what is commonly known as High Functioning Autism (or Asperger’s Syndrome) and it can rather be a problem when it comes to driving. To make a long story short, my autism, although a social disorder can also affect other aspects of life like driving and decision making skills. During the weeks I was in the course, I prayed along with my physical family and my spiritual family that I would succeed in my driving class despite my autism and sure enough, God moved.
Now bear in mind I was juggling this course, a job hunt that has been going on for months to no avail, in addition to helping with my family. For a guy like me, that is a lot to juggle. Then I think back to the verse that is quoted many times:
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28 ESV
As long as I give it to God, He would take care of the rest and He did. So if there’s anything in your life that’s making you go nuts to the point where you’re about to pull your hair out, take a moment and breathe; trust me, God’s got this.
