Say What? by Phillip Hazelwood; Make your own flower bed...

Phillip Hazelwood


What are you going to do with yourself? Do you want to just give up and die? You say you just can't cope with life. Why not? Everyone else does! Think you've been through more than anyone else? Hardly true! You need your thoughts adjusted.

I've seen people with no arms and no legs, yet they had a job and didn't feel sorry for themselves. You have two arms and two legs that work, so what is holding you back? I've seen others that were confined to a wheelchair, but lived a happy productive life. Why aren't you? Others have no living parents, children, siblings, yet they keep busy working and helping others, so what keeps you from helping others?

I saw a dog once they could not move its back legs so it got around by using its front legs to drag its back legs around. Another dog didn't even have any back legs, so it simply walked on its two front legs. I know you are not a dog, but if a little dog has the will to fight on, why can't you?

You say nobody cares whether you live or die? So what! You should care about yourself. The world doesn't owe you a bed of roses. You must make your own flower bed. Life happens to all of us, both good and bad, so what are you going to do with your situation? You have a choice. Will you deal with it and start over anew or just keep feeling sorry for yourself?

Jesus is a Way Maker. God helps those that help themselves. A live dog is better than a dead lion. Winners never quit and quitters never win. Wake up and smell the coffee because your days are numbered. Self-pity is a spiritual disease, but the word of God is secure. Do it.

Jesus is the starting point.
