Most people would rather deny a hard truth than face it.  William Shakespeare said “This above all: to thine own self be true. And it must follow, as the night the day. Thou canst not then be false to any man.” Denial of the truth does not mean that you can turn a blind eye to facts. All of us must live with the truth no matter how painful it might seem.

Imagine for a moment that your life is faultless in every way. Imagine yourself getting everything you need physically, spiritually and emotionally, not just from those around you but from within. All your needs are completely satisfied in every way possible. Every dream and goal you have ever had for yourself is instantly fulfilled, and every possible problem you might encounter is easily resolved the moment it appears. If you ever were to have this type of existence, it would mean  your life is in perfect balance; however, no one’s life is perfect.

No matter how much you believe that your life is in perfect balance, it is not true because every person has some type of denial going on at some point. Denial ranges from covering up something so insignificant that it does not seem to have any impact either way to covering up an immense and potentially toxic secret. Wherever it falls on this spectrum of life, denial is there in our lives.

The biblical words emphatically say, “cast your burden on the Lord and He will sustain you.” God knows you are not built to carry the weight of worry, so he invites you to give it to him today. Anything that is big enough to be a source of anxiety in your life, all your worries and all your concerns, once and for all, you should cast them upon him.

God cares about your anxieties, your troubles and anything that is weighing your life down. They say you can run from your troubles but you sure cannot hide from them. So, cease with denying your problems and let God fix them for you and you will find a renewed spirit filled with joy and happiness. And Never Give Up! Never Give Up! Never Give Up!
