Problems Are A Part Of Life

PROBLEMS ARE PART OF LIFE.  They are inescapable: woven into the very fabric of this fallen world.  You tend to go into problem-solving mode all too readily, acting as if you have the capacity to fix everything.  This is a habitual response , so automatic that it by-passes your conscious thinking. Not only does this habit frustrate you, it also distances you from Me.

Do not let fixing things be your top priority  You are ever so limited in your capacity to correct all that is wrong in the world around you.  Don’t weigh yourself down with responsibilities that are not your own Instead, make your relationship with Me your primary concern.  Talk with Me about whatever is on your mind, seeking My perspective on the situation.  Rather than trying to fix everything that comes to your attention , ask Me to show you what is truly important. Remember that you are en route to heaven, and let your problems fade in the Light of eternity.

    I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you.  Psalm 32:8

  “Martha, Martha,”  the Lord answered, ” you are worried and upset about many  things, but only one thing is needed.  Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”  Psalm 32:8

   But our citizenship is in heaven.  And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who , by the power that enables Him to bring everything under His control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like His glorious body.  Philippians 3:20-21
