How To Rise Above The Drama & Live For God

Do you get discouraged by the craziness in the world? These simple but powerful truths will help you rise above it all and live for God.

How To Rise Above Drama and Live for God

Micah was a Judean prophet from the Southwest of Israel. He prophesied during the reigns of three kings – Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah.

Jotham was a good king, but did not remove the idolatrous high places.

Ahaz was a wicked king with a pro-Assyrian foreign policy. The Northern Kingdom was taken captive during his reign.

Hezekiah was a good king for most of his reign. His anti-Assyrian policies led to the siege of Jerusalem by Sennacherib.

Those were difficult days for the common people in Judea. They were harassed by the enemy, exploited by the rich (2:1-13), taken advantage of by their rulers (3:1-4), and distracted by the message of false prophets (3:5-8).

The key verse in this book is Micah 6:8.​

Micah 6:8  “He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; And what doth the Lord require of thee, But to do justly, and to love mercy, And to walk humbly with thy God?”

There were many reasons for the people of God to be discouraged, angry, depressed. Micah was encouraging the people to rise above the drama of the day.

How Much Can A Person Take Before They Break?

Have you ever said something like, “I don’t know how much more of this I can take?” You are not alone. Here’s what the Bible says…

1 Corinthians 10:13
“There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.”

Everybody has bad days. It’s an expected part of life.

What if those bad days start to pile up? How do you respond when your load gets heavier week by week as trials keep coming with no end in sight?

Or what if you have an unthinkable tragedy invade your life. You thought you were ready for anything… but not this!

Have you ever said something like, “I don’t know how much more of this I can take?” You are not alone. Here’s what the Bible says…. Click To Tweet

Both of those scenarios are a reality. Don’t think it won’t happen to you.

How you respond when you feel overwhelmed and wonder if you can go on will determine your longevity in God’s will. So many people jump out of the frying pan into the fire when things get tough. Their situation goes from bad to worse because they make foolish decisions under pressure.

The Meanest Mother In The World

In 1967 Bobbie Pingaro wrote an article titled “The Meanest Mother in the World.” On this Mother’s Day, these words may remind us of mothers we know – or have known – and should be again.

“I had the meanest mother in the whole world. While other kids ate candy for breakfast, I had to have cereal, eggs or toast. When others had cokes and candy for lunch, I had to eat a sandwich. As you can guess, my supper was different than the other kids’ also.

But at least I wasn’t alone in my sufferings. My sister and two brothers had the same mean mother as I did.

Our mother insisted upon knowing where we were at all times. You’d think we were on a chain gang. She had to know who our friends were and where we were going. She insisted if we said we’d be gone an hour, that we be gone one hour or less – not one hour and one minute. 

We had to wear clean clothes and take a bath. The other kids always wore their clothes for days. We reached the height of insults because she made our clothes herself, just to save money. Why, oh why, did we have to have a mother who made us feel different from our friends?

The worst is yet to come. We couldn’t sleep till noon like our friends. While they slept – my mother actually had the nerve to break the child-labor law. She made us work. We had to wash dishes, make beds, learn to cook, and all sorts of cruel things.

I believe she laid awake at night thinking up mean things to do to us.

She always insisted upon us telling the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, even if it killed us – and it nearly did.

Through the years, things didn’t improve a bit. We could not lie in bed “sick” like our friends did and miss school. If our friends had a toe ache, a hang nail or serious ailment, they could stay home from school, but not us.

By the time we were teen-agers, she was much wiser, and our life became even more unbearable. None of this tooting the horn of a car for us to come running. She embarrassed us to no end by making our dates and friends come to the door to get us. If I spent the night with a girlfriend, she checked on me to see if I was really there. 

She forced us to grow up into God-fearing, educated, honest adults. And whom do we have to blame for the terrible way we turned out? You’re right – our mean mother. 

Using this as a background, I am trying to raise my three children. I stand a little taller and I am filled with pride when my children call me mean. Because, you see, I thank God He gave me the meanest mother in the whole world.”
