Have you ever felt like you were struggling to stay afloat in a raging sea with no end to the storm in sight? Like you were drowning, and there was no one to help?
How did you react when you felt overwhelmed and helpless? Did you keep paddling to find a shore, or did you give up and say, “I can’t handle this?”
Whatever you did, there is a way out of it.
First, Instead of fixating on what you can’t control, redirect your energy towards what you can influence. Create a list of actionable steps or tasks related to the situation that you have some control over. By setting achievable goals and taking proactive steps, you’ll regain a sense of empowerment and reduce feelings of helplessness.
With your mental energy redirected, you are able to communicate with God in a more effective way. Ask him to help you and support you through your struggle.
God wants us to call for Him. 1 Corinthians 1:2 says, “To the church of God in Corinth, to those sanctified in Christ Jesus and called to be his holy people, together with all those everywhere who call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ—their Lord and ours.”
We have to trust that He will deliver us. He is committed to us because we have chosen His way and path. Remember that Christ does not abandon those who follow Him. But that doesn’t mean we won’t face hard times or difficulties. The Cause of Christ is one that often leads to significant difficulty for many. But when all is said and done, our souls shine brighter in heaven and we are counted among those who didn’t give up and did as God commanded, even when it was hard.
1. Commit 1 Corinthians 1:2 to memory.
