Morning Cup of Joe – Depend On Yourself

There may come a day when you reach out to call someone but they do not answer. There may come a day when you really need help but no one is around to hear your cry. There may come a day when you are at wits end and just need a friend but no friends are available to come to your rescue. The world can be a lonely place. When that happens, learn to depend on the only person you’ve been able to your entire life; yourself.

Having to fend for yourself is not easy; trust me, I know. Obviously you can be more effective if you have “back-up” or at least one more soldier on the battlefield with you but that is not always the case. Some battles are simply yours to fight and certainly yours to win. When you start to feel as if you are the only person who cares about your situation, although you can’t see Him, you are not alone. In essence, even if the world gives up on you, God never will.

Learn to depend on yourself. You cannot realistically expect for others to forever be there for you during your time of need. Sometimes we have to pick ourselves up from our bootstraps, dust our shoulders off and keep on truckin’. Please understand that you are not going to enter every war with an army, there will be times when you have to understand that your entire military may consist of an army of one; you.

When it feels like the world has turned its back on you, walk in the understanding that you serve a God that is capable of anything. If you have Him by your side, you have nothing to worry about.

To The Top!
