Following yesterday’s post, 5 Things To Do During Troubling Times, here’s a succinct list, adapted from Master’s University professor Glenda Hotton, an author, counselor, and lecturer, on where to look when facing adversity, challenges, and problems.
If you’re a new reader of the ThePreachersWord, you can access the previous 11 Friday’s lists by clicking here.
In addition, I’ve added some links to past blog posts for further food for thought.
WHERE TO LOOK
God will never leave or forsake you.
His word is a light unto your path.
Confide in a friend.
Seek comfort and counsel in local resources.
Take an inventory of your feelings.
Journal your thoughts, ideas, and progress
Look for Truth.
Gather information and research your options.
Often natural inclinations are in opposition to God’s Word.
Resist the temptation to change others.
Change what you can; accept what you cannot.
Look for Balance.
Take care of yourself.
Get enough rest; eat healthfully; attempt to simplify life.
Look for Laughter.
A cheerful heart is like a good medicine.
Choose joyful music. Uplifting books. And optimistic friends.
Look for Comfort.
Read the Psalms
Let others encourage you and find ways to encourage others.
Look for God’s Purpose.
Every experience has spiritual significance.
Press closer to God and allow Him to deepen your faith.
Have a blessed day.
–Ken Weliever, The Preacherman
