The other night I was thinking of that quote that people say about how religion is a crutch. I smiled to myself as I said out loud, "Jesus is my crutch!" I am quite happy with having Jesus as a crutch.
A crutch helps you walk when you are unable to on your own. Well, I don't know about you, but I am unable to live this life on my own.
People and pets die, or they hurt you in some way. Not that you can't trust them, but I learned, and yet keep learning, that I can't fully put my faith and trust in them. It isn't fair to them, to expect people to be perfect like God. That is too high of an expectation that they can't bear.
I was humbled last week, when I realized that I had done it again, put all my trust in people. I won't go into details, that isn't important. What is important is that once again, I have to learn the lesson that God is enough.
He alone is enough for me. Sure, I can trust my family and friends, but to expect them to be more than they are, is not fair, to them, and I will only be hurt eventually.
So I learned this lesson again, and will probably need to relearn it at some time in the future. I don't know why it is so hard to keep this in mind.
All I know is that God id enough. And Jesus is my crutch.
