What kind of struggle are you going through today or this week? What are the methods that have helped you through it? Let’s read Ephesians 1:7 together.
In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace,
When we go through struggles we forget about the purpose of why we were doing it. It’s hard to give into grace when nothing goes correctly to your plans. Here is my method when all else, like spa day or self care day, fails.
Read the Bible.
Reading the Bible brings me great comfort because it has promises that God had already set for me and my future. That those dishes are not my purpose in life or paying bills is not the end of life. It is that my sins were washed away when Christ died so that I could be free today and tomorrow. I know you have heard this many times but think about why those words are always repeated. It is truly because of sin that keeps us away from God. For example, when we forget the purpose of what we are doing, it causes us to push away the integrity that God has planted in us. So don’t forget that there are paper plates to help substitute those times when you don’t want to do dishes and bills can be paid off if you are diligent about paying it off.
Journaling in any form is always the most affordable escape. It’s the best method to express your thoughts especially if you already make notes inside your Bible. Of course, not everyone thinks journaling is fun but it has its own purpose. If you have taken on challenges before try journaling even if it’s on your electronic device.
We have been saved but we still struggle everyday. How may I pray for you today?
