PROBLEMS, we all have them, even if we think we have the perfect life. As much as we like to think we don’t, WE ALL HAVE PROBLEMS. This is even more true for those who are growing in faith and closer to Christ, to attain a problem-free life is an unrealistic goal, as long as were living in this world we will always have problems. For those of Christ, we must allow God the room to work OUT our problems and weave out a blessing. Many times we fail to even realize the invisible blessings in problems because were too occupied with complaining rather than focusing on what God is actually trying to do. Discuss everything with God, the better your communication with God, the more you allow God into your life with a open mind and a trusting spirit. Personally it is helpful for me to allow myself to think of every situation as a test, good and bad, this leaves room and reminds me to think of God in every situation! You must be careful however, even though God will always know your heart, you would want to do the right thing naturally, yes this comes with time and much faith that God still has POWER! Also remember we reside in a fallen world that is out of sync with Christ and His word. However at the same time we can expect our relationship with Christ to produce peace and comfort because we are “in sync” with Him. How grateful are we to serve a God that PROMISES to never leave nor forsake us and will always be at our right side no matter what we go though here!
