I’ve certainly had my share of problems, and if I had a dollar for every time I’ve made a mess of things I would be a rich woman.
I know you’ve had your own problems, and it can often seem like you’ll never find your way back into the light. This is the time to call on God or your Higher Power to see you through.
Here are four tips to remember when your life is a mess:
Trials Make You Stronger
I didn’t say that trials are enjoyable, and you can’t always control what happens to you. As you pray, God will use these trials to strengthen your faith. It may not seem like it at the time, but every trial you go through has a purpose.
Choose to Be Thankful
When you’re going through a rough patch, it’s tempting to complain to anyone that will listen. Focus on the things that are going right and give thanks. A thankful heart and a positive attitude make things seem a lot brighter.
Trust God’s Timing
If my life is any indication, things tend to move a lot slower when you’re working in God’s timing. I tend to want to run ahead of God, but when my prayer is answered, it’s always better than anything I could have done on my own.
You’ll Never Walk Alone
Hard times are often lonely, and you feel like you’re out of step with the rest of the world. No one else seems to be struggling, but always remember God is walking beside you. You may not feel it, but He is always there.
