Are you Unhappy...
Because you want things that you do not have the means to get?
Because everything seems to go right for others you know, but wrong for you?
Because you have been laid off?
Because you started out to find your dreams and nothing has gone right?
Because you feel alone, and not loved?
Because you have lost someone you loved?
Because you face an illness and are weak?
Because the things you want to do, need to do, you just do not seem to be able to do?

How do you change this? How do you face this?

God with Us
"God shall be with ye." (Genesis 48:21)

Jacob could no more be with Joseph, for his hour had come to die:

but he left his son without anxiety, for he said with confidence,
"God shall be with you."

When our dearest relations or our most helpful friends are called home by death, we must console ourselves with the reflection that the Lord is not departed from us but lives for us and abides with us forever.

If God be with us, we are in ennobling company, even though we are poor and despised.

If God be with us, we have all-sufficient strength, for nothing can be too hard for the Lord.

If God be with us, we are always safe, for none can harm those who walk under His shadow.

Oh, what a joy we have here!

Not only is God with us, but He will be with us. With us as individuals; with us as families; with us as churches.

Is not the very name of Jesus, Immanuel -- God with us?

Is not this the best of all, that God is with us?

Let us be bravely diligent and joyously hopeful.

Our cause must prosper, the truth must win, for the Lord is with those who are with Him.

All this day may this sweet word be enjoyed by every believer who turns to God through the Lord Jesus Christ, who is our sacrifice, our Redeemer, our Saviour...

No greater happiness is possible...Do you have this Happiness?

If you do not...Ask for it...John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him shall not Perish but have everlasting life"

"Call upon the name of the Lord and thou shall be saved"

"God shall be with you"

WHAT TO DO UNDER THE CONDITIONS
Call on our "Burden Bearer"!

Thanks Rocky for sharing.

Cast thy burden upon the Lord.

Psalms 55:22
http://www.SearchGodsWord.org/desk/?query=ps+55:22&sr=1 (http://www.SearchGodsWord.org/desk/?query=ps+55:22&sr=1)

We must distinguish between the burden-bearing that is right and the
burden-bearing that is wrong. We ought never to bear the burden of
sin or of doubt, but there are burdens placed on us by God which He
does not intend to lift off, He wants us to roll them back on Him.
"Cast that He hath given thee upon the Lord." (R.V. marg.) If we
undertake work for God and get out of touch with Him, the sense of
responsibility will be overwhelmingly crushing; but if we roll back
on God that which He has put upon us, He takes away the sense of
responsibility by bringing in the realization of Himself.

Many workers have gone out with high courage and fine impulses, but
with no intimate fellowship with Jesus Christ, and before long they
are crushed. They do not know what to do with the burden, it produces
weariness, and people say - "What an embittered end to such a
beginning!"

"Roll thy burden upon the Lord" - you have been bearing it all;
deliberately put one end on the shoulders of God. "The government
shall be upon His shoulder." Commit to God "that He hath given thee";
not fling it off, but put it over on to Him and yourself with it, and
the burden is lightened by the sense of companionship. Never
disassociate yourself from the burden.

Very good Rocky. Yes, I believe the answer is in knowing God is with you.

I am not sure about all the proseltyzing & lessons teaching going on here though on MWO boards. Some may find it offensive.
