There is often an underlying reason for the discontent, agitations, anxiety, anger, regrets, and other emotions we experience. During these situations, we become vulnerable to all kinds of thoughts, ideas, and suggestions hoping that perhaps we may find some peace.
Incidentally, it is common to see people who are discontent with their lives and are frantically searching for ways to turn it around. We hear them asking questions like: ‘why is my life like this, why am I so sad, how can I change my life with no money, I don’t know what to do with my life anymore, I need to change my life but don’t know how. I need help with my life etc’.
How to Get the Right Answers
The questions asked are indications of discontent and frustration because of the inability to find answers and solutions to the challenges been faced. Unfortunately, most of the solutions offered by businesses and professionals (secular system) cannot help people in this situation, such formulas may only offer a temporary relief.
[Tweet “Jesus said I am the way, the truth, and the life.”]
If you ask the right questions in the wrong places, you will most likely get the wrong answers. The real answers to the questions above can only be found in the word of God. That is where you will find the truth about yourself. Jesus said I am the way, the truth, and the life. It is in Christ alone that you can find peace and fulfillment in your life. “Come to me all you that labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest…”
Why All Other Solutions are Futile
The satisfaction and fulfillment that you are looking for cannot be found anywhere else, except in Christ Jesus. It is easy to believe that one can find it in alcohol, drugs, sex, or a little more money. All of that is a deception and that is why you become more dissatisfied with a sense of hopelessness and emptiness after each round of sex, alcohol, drugs, fortune, or sensual pleasure.
You may think that you will get better as you indulge yourself some more, but you will only end up sinking deeper into despair. Your natural feelings and desires for pleasures are only tricking you to take you down the wrong path. This path leads to destruction, destruction of dreams, destruction of relationships, destruction of careers and ultimately the destruction of your life (John 10:10)

Make a Commitment to Change Your Life Now
You must realize that God has an excellent plan for your life and what you are experiencing is less than God’s intentions and desires for you. Know that God loves you with an undying love that cannot be changed irrespective of what you have done (Jer.31:3). He wants to accept you and cause His power to transform you into the person He wants you to be.
You cannot do all these by yourself. You do not have the ability to change yourself. So, don’t think that you have to clear up your mess before He can accept you. He wants you to come to Him and accept His love right now in your condition, then His power will clean you up.
This is not a complex process, you can accept Jesus into your life by saying this short prayer:
Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner and need Your forgiveness. I believe that You died on the cross for my sins and rose from the grave to give me life. I know You are the only way to God. So now I want to quit disobeying You and start living for You. Please forgive me, change my life and show me how to know You. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
