Thought For Today: “Dealing With Frustrations”
Frustrations are the daily irritants of life. Frustrations come from the daily interruptions and inconveniences of life. The best way to deal with frustrations is to reduce them by placing them in the proper perspective.
When rebuilding the wall surrounding Jerusalem, the people became discouraged and depressed because in their eyes the pile of rubble they were pulling stones from didn’t seem to be getting any smaller.
“The strength of the laborers is failing, and there is so much rubbish that we are not able to build the wall.” (Nehemiah 4:10)
The truth, however, was quite different. The pile was getting smaller.
We may not be able to control our circumstances, but we can control how we respond to them, and that’s by gaining God’s perspective as to what we’re facing through time spent in God’s word and prayer.
“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” (Isaiah 41:10)
