What does your sandwich filling do for you? What need is it filling? We do what we do because it satisfies some need within ourselves.
What does lazy parenting, binging, smoking, lying, dishonesty (whatever!) do for you? It offers only temporary satisfaction. It will not bring any kind of success. There is a better way.
When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy. (Psalm 94:19, NIV)
My comfort in my suffering is this: Your promise preserves my life. (Psalm 119:50, NIV)
Jesus says-For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”(Matthew 11:30, NIV)
Prayer- Lord, help us turn to you instead of our ____________, for you are the source of every comfort. You are our consolation and our encouragement! (From 2 Corinthians 1:3)
