Some days are easier than others, whether you are speaking of mental issues or just everyday living. Do you have more problems now than you did a few years ago? Some of us do, especially as we get older. Joints which didn’t hurt a decade ago, now hurt every day and sometimes keep us up at night.
Then there are financial problems and relationship issues that we all have to deal with. How do you handle all of these on a daily or weekly basis? Some of us deal with it by counselling, some by leaning on family members, some rely on their spiritual life. We all have our own ways of handling our problems no matter how big or small they may be. I still have days where I want to run screaming down the road, but that won’t solve anything. It will just create another problem…like getting myself back to the house and explaining why I did what I did (thankfully I haven’t done it, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t thought about it).
There are days when we all have “hair-pulling days” but somehow we get through them. Most of us tend to count to ten or twenty, some of us pray and then count to twenty, but we all have a way of dealing with those days. Jesus said that we would have trouble in our lives, but He would send the comforter…the Holy Spirit to help us and strengthen us so that we can make it through those times. God loves us and He doesn’t leave us alone in those trying times, regardless of what is testing us. Whether it is a disease or a financial problem or whatever it might be, He is there to help.
Seek His comfort and counsel in your days of trouble, no matter how big or small it may be. He loves us and cares for us and He will be there with us through it all.
Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. Matthew 6:33
