This was really thought provoking to me. Think about it…….. how many times are we so consumed with something it literally TAKES OVER!! It takes over our thoughts, attitude, actions ……. and it can happen in a flash!
It’s possible to struggle without letting it overtake us. Sometimes it’s easier said than done, but it is possible.
What are some things you do to keep yourself from being consumed by your struggles?
The biggest thing I probably do is listen to music. I have “positive encouraging” Christian music on 24/7. It’s always in the background and helps keep me grounded and focused.
Prayer and reading scripture is a big one for me to. I read this verse last night and it really goes along with the topic ~ Psalms 118:5 says ~ I called upon the LORD in distress: the LORD answered me, and set me in a broad place. Perfect! A broad place – somewhere with space where I don’t fell so trapped by my circumstances.
What about you? I’d love to hear from you.
Thanks for visiting!
