Are you facing a challenge today?  LOL, of course, you are. WE all are! And all at the same time.  

The list of emotions that come with these new challenges is long. The stress causes many people to think illogically and therefore create tension, frustration, and anger, thus saying they are “adding fuel to the fire.”  What a waste of energy and time.

I heard it said, “Let us not sink to the level of the problem but rise to the level of the solution.” The solution is God and His Ways.  When the impossible is your lens about your troubles, Jesus tells us you are looking through the wrong lens.  He tells us that it is impossible with man, but not with God; all things are possible with God.  But we don’t give God a chance.  We just get mad, let our “need to be right” control us, and we sink further down. 

Our extreme desire to control everything is getting us to a place where we will have no control over anything.  And Yet, in reality, the only choice we have is what we will allow to influence us.

I hope you find some encouragement in the following:

-When you pray, and you don’t think God is listening.

Know that He hears every word from the first day you set your mind to gain understanding and to humble yourself before your God.  See Daniel 10:10-13

-When you are hopeless.

Pray Romans 15:13.

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in HIM, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

-And a friendly reminder:  God is Sovereign over everything! That means He dominion, power, authority over everyone, and everything.

Solution: Spend some time with God and let Him tell you how much He loves you and His plan for your challenges.  

If you don’t know God or know someone who is asking about their future or questioning their faith, I encourage you to click on the link and watch this sermon by Pastor Josh Howerton.  It is a game-changer.
