“You can find peace amidst the storms that threaten you.” – Joseph B. Wirthlin
All of us experience difficulties from time to time. These difficulties can range from a minor nuisance to a devastating tragedy. In most cases our emotions get the better of us, complicating the situation even further.
Have you ever heard a statement that revolves around being so (whatever the emotion) that they couldn’t think? This is exactly what happens each time our emotions get the best of us.
I do not have any suggestions as to how you personally deal with these things. All I can tell you is about my personal experience. It is simple: Do the best you can with what you have and pass off your worries to God.
I’ve found that when I let go of any attachment I have to a particular outcome, along with the subsequent worry about the future when trouble comes is very calming. After trying this a few times, I also found that I suffered less. Whatever is going to happen is going to happen. The only thing you control is how you react to these difficulties.
I live by two discovered truths:
- Everything is in its rightful place in the worlds of God.
- God will never give you more than you can handle.
Until next time…
