Our First Solution

Today I was finally able to get some cleaning done. I was very happy, I had swept the floors and was about to mop (I have a steam mop). I put the water in it and plugged it in. It wouldn't steam! I tried it again and nothing. My happy cleaning day was brought to a end because of this fiasco! Even though my steam mop was not steaming, I sure was! I felt like breaking it in half and chucking it out the door. Thankfully I didn't. I just tossed it in the back room and went to Google, searching for ways to possibly fix my broken mop.

 I finally came across some solutions. I hurried back into the kitchen, once I grabbed my mop and started performing the "solutions", but nothing worked! Needless to say I was frustrated once more. The last solution that I had found was to mix half CLR and half water and put it in the mop and let it sit for about an hour or so, then plug it back in. Haven't tried it yet since I don't have any CLR.

 With this little cleaning experience from today it made me realize something. As soon as we are faced with a problem a lot of us don't turn to God first. We try to fix things ourselves. Its like we are saying to God "I don't need you this time Lord, I've got this". Meanwhile the Lord is probably shaking his head in sadness. Unlike me not having CLR, most of us have a bible and can pray, those are the things we should do first when a problem arrives in our life. Praying, talking to our Father so he can help us understand and get through the issue we are facing and going to his word to find what he has to say about what we are facing. That is what we should do to begin with. We need to run to him first, not last! He should be our first solution! After all he is Alpha and Omega, Beginning and End. Who better to run to for his help, his comfort, and peace that he can give us.

Here are some scriptures that I found that help us realize the we can't depend on ourselves, we can not face this life alone.

Proverbs 3:5-6 : Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct they paths.
2 Corinthians 1:9 : But we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God which raiseth the dead.
