Are Problems Overwhelming You?

It is very hard to separate myself from my circumstances. it is almost as if I become my circumstances…. or they in some way absorb me. But I have to remember that I am not my circumstances. I am a child of God.. As His child I have an inheritance (Psalm 37:18) and that inheritance is peace, grace, mercy… the list is pretty long. Iit is peace that passes all understanding (Philippians 4:17) and sometimes when I am in the whirlwind of problems I have to remember to step outside of the whirlwind (remembering that I and the whirlwind are not one).

Take some deep breaths.
Take time out. (Matthew 14:23)
Be still and know that he is God. (Psalm 46:10)
Try to see things through the eyes of Christ and not my weak eyes….

Yes, the problems are very real and they are disconcerting.
But what is greater? God or my problems?
What is eternal? God or my problems?
Problems are almost always fleeting and never permanent. What is so today will not be true tomorrow.The only exception is God’s Truth. I choose to stand on that rock.
