When you wrap your head around the world its hard to let go of that. We get so drawn into the world that its hard to give all of it to God. We may feel happy and we say its the world. You see posts all about depression anxiety and i am saying this because i have been on the exact same boat. We say were happy but go home and get anxiety or cry till we fall asleep but you have to ask your self are you really happy? We ask why we are not happy when we fill our lives with the world but true joy is only found through the Lord. God doesn’t give you happiness he gives you pure joy. He gives you a light that you shine and your not ashamed of. He gives you a purpose. He gives you a real reason to put a smile on your face each morning and he takes away every last bit of your depression and your anxiety. Why don’t we just give that sorrow to God? Why is it so hard? Is it because your scared? Surrendering to God can be hard but the only reason were so scared is because we let the devil wrap our minds around his finger and so its easy for us to believe his lies. We think if we give up cussing or parting then were not gonna fit it were gonna be torn apart by people. I’m not gonna lie people will try to bring you down but when your in the fathers house there’s no such thing as fitting in or judgement because when you let God takes all your worries the only judgement that will matter is Gods. In every life your gonna find trails. Lets say there is 2 doors, 1 is open and 1 is closed. Your trying to open the closed door but God is telling you to walk with him through the open door. Were so curious of the world that we forget God already has a opening to joy. Would we rather break down the closed door to walk alone through trials and pain of the world or would you rather walk through the door God will walk with you in. We all go through hurts but when we walk with God he will be there through our hurt and he will build us back up. You’ll have true joy. Go ahead and read Ecclesiastes 2:1-11( you can scroll down and find the verse).King Solomon filled his life with riches and pleasures of the world but he didn’t find happiness or delight. You can only find true pleasure and happiness through God. Giving everything to God is scary but just do it because as soon as you walk through the door he will never leave your side.

4 I undertook great projects: I built houses for myself and planted vineyards. 5 I made gardens and parks and planted all kinds of fruit trees in them. 6 I made reservoirs to water groves of flourishing trees. 7 I bought male and female slaves and had other slaves who were born in my house. I also owned more herds and flocks than anyone in Jerusalem before me. 8 I amassed silver and gold for myself, and the treasure of kings and provinces. I acquired male and female singers, and a harem as well—the delights of a man’s heart. 9 I became greater by far than anyone in Jerusalem before me. In all this my wisdom stayed with me.10 I denied myself nothing my eyes desired;
I refused my heart no pleasure.
My heart took delight in all my labor,
and this was the reward for all my toil.
11 Yet when I surveyed all that my hands had done
and what I had toiled to achieve,
everything was meaningless, a chasing after the wind;
nothing was gained under the sun.
