How are we meant to cope?

“…. concentrate on winning God’s approval, on being a workman with nothing to be ashamed of, and who knows how to use the word of truth to the best advantage.” 2 Timothy 2:15

When our lives are consumed by our problems reason and logic go out the window. Our judgement is impeded, sensible decisions beyond us. Common sense departs from us and life gets confusing. Handling our finances becomes a problem for us. How are we meant to cope? The answer is most of us don’t. Even though we know we need our wits about us to properly control our lives we continue on a path of dullness and insensitivity.

MEDITATION
Wise planning is necessary, give-and-take essential We need to take time to think through our decisions. We need to build a relationship with a Sponsor or trusted friend to discuss personal matters with. We need to build relationship with the Holy Spirit, seek His guidance and His help to overcome the seemingly impossible. We need to make changes in our lives that align with God’s Word and will for us.

PRAYER
Lord, I know I cannot handle my problems on my own. Help me to concentrate on Your Word and Your will for my life. Guide in making the changes in my life I need to make to overcome the things that seem impossible to me with Your help.
