One of the main issues that cannot be avoided are problems! Problems, problems, PROBLEMS! Why do we have them? Where do they com from? Sometimes we question God asking Him why we are going through certain situations, relative to other people who are having a stress-free life. It is very easy to compare and complain about why your life is not going well, or not going the way you ought it to be. But I want to let you know that God sees everything!!
I was talking to a friend the other day, and she was telling me that she works so hard and does not see the results manifest. I could totally relate to her, as it was a sensitive topic. I had to tell her that she is not alone. Have you noticed in life, when you are going through something, you feel like your the only one going through it? Well guess what, you aint! Every single one of us has our own battles to carry! In other words, we have our own individual crosses to bare.
It may not be easy now, but it does say in His word that our latter days will be GREATER than our former days!! It is so easy to complain about life, and about what others have, and what you do not have. Maybe you did not get the first class you wanted in your degree, maybe you did not get the job you took several hours applying for, maybe you have been unemployed for more than 5 years, maybe your dissertation got lost on your laptop just a day before your submission date, maybe you could not get married this year, maybe you are in a financial crisis, maybe your worried about your health, maybe your concerned about certain people in your family, maybe your addicted to something that you cannot let go of…LET IT ALL GO!! William McDonald composed a song called “I surrender all to you, EVERYTHING I give to you…WITHHOLDING NOTHING”.
How many of us can actually say we are going to give God everything!? It is easier said than done right? Believe me, I know! But let us try not to do certain things in our own strength, rather give it all to God! 1 Peter 5 v 7: “Cast your burdens onto Jesus for He cares for You!”
Another thing to keep in mind: Be happy for those around you that are being blessed! None of us know what one is going through behind closed doors! This could be their own opportunity for their breakthrough and blessings, so allow people to enjoy what God has given them, and eventually, God will also grant you what you also desire. Do not allow their blessings to make you miserable!
The truth is, how you deal with other people determines how God deals with you!
– Have a positive mindset
– Do not complain or compare yourself to others
– Do not allow what you are going through to drag you down
– Ask God for His Peace
– Pray for more happiness in your life
