I was watching a parody video on YouTube featuring the character Gohan from the series “Dragonball Z.”
The scene that stuck out to me was the moment he was in a fight, and before he made his move he asked himself “what would my dad in a situation like this.”
The only thing he could imagine was his dad saying “bye son!”
Gohan then says to himself, “I’m beginning to think I have issues.”
I suppose I would too if I only saw my Dad half the time and he was always away defeating aliens, all the while I’m sitting in a house in the middle of nowhere with no kids my age to play with and doing homework all the time. Wow…sounds like my childhood.
But, I digress!
What’s interesting about this is that everyone has them. Everyone has some kind of issue. That doesn’t mean we can’t function, however. It just means that you and me have some things that we have to learn to work through and walk through.
The good news is that if you are reading this post you have a chance to acknowledge the “issues.”
You are not alone on the issue of “issues.” Maybe something happened in your childhood. Maybe the last relationship you had with someone you considered very special ended badly. Maybe you didn’t have a chance to tell someone how you really felt before it was too late.
The good news is that you do not have to go alone. For you, you don’t have to sit here and say “I have issues,” and leave it at that. You can admit it and go to the one who can fix it.
You may ask: “how do you go forward daily even with the issues you have!?” Because I have peace…peace that surpasses all human understanding (Philippians 4:7).
It is from there that I can tackle those issues and go forward!
What’s your issue!?
