Happy Monday Saints.
Psalms 42:5 “WHY MY SOUL ARE YOU DOWNCAST? WHY SO DISTURBED WITHIN ME?”
That’s a good question. We don’t become downcast and disturbed without reason.
It’s good to stop, think, and ask ourselves why we are discouraged, upset or even angry. What’s causing the lack of peace?
If you can discover why you feel the way you do, you might find the answer to your problems.
Sometimes, the problem is with us. We can be discouraged because of our own lack of action, doing something we know is wrong, or living well below our best.
When we know that things can and should be better but we do nothing to change – we become downcast because of our own passivity. We detach ourselves from our problems and hope that somehow (without any effort on our part) things will miraculously change or become better. But life doesn’t work that way. God has given each of us the gift of free will – the ability to choose, make a decision and do something about our circumstances.
If your problem is YOU, ask God to give you the wisdom to know what to do and the strength to get up and take action.
If your problem is YOU, God can help you overcome YOURSELF. For many, the only thing that is holding them back is THEMSELVES. Blaming others won’t make a difference when the change that you desire is being delayed because of YOU.
So, if you are discouraged, ask yourself why. And if your problem is YOU – pray! Get the help that you need from God to do what you need to do to make your future bright.
Have a great day and an even better week.
God bless and lots’a love,
