Are we ever helpless?

     Sometimes, we feel overwhelmed by our circumstances, our sufferings, or just our place in life.  Perhaps, we feel like we have no choice other than to continue down our current path.  We have to remember that God is bigger than our circumstances, sufferings, or place in life.
     God created us, but He most-likely did not create our circumstances, sufferings, or place in life.  Due to our brokenness from sin, we and/or others have created them.  However, our God can do something about it.  After all, He did create the whole universe and keeps it in existence.  Plus, He loves us.
     God can help us in any situation.  In Medjugorje, Mary appeared and said, “[i]n prayer you shall perceive the greatest joy -- and the way out of every situation that has no exit.”  So, prayer is our answer.
     However, in some cases, prayer shows us the exit; we still have to walk through it.  This can be the hardest part, accepting an answer to our prayer that is not what we asked for.  If we are praying for a chainsaw and God gives us an ax, we should be thankful.  After all, God knows best.  In most cases, He gives us a chainsaw when we are asking for an ax, anyways.
