When the Going Gets Tough

When the going gets tough...

There are times when we are faced with a difficult decision or situation, it seems to be a part of being human.

Perhaps you are healthier mentally and spiritually than me, but my initial gut reaction is to feel alone, isolate, and let my self-generated fears magnify the difficult moment to lead me into making a bad choice with my actions or behaviors.

Over the years I have learned to expect this reaction in me and to not act on it. I turn to prayer and invite the Holy Spirit to guide my words, actions, and choices.

When I do, I no longer feel alone, defeated, or fearful.

Sure, I still have to walk through the situation but I no longer let it control me and my attitudes.

I remind myself that God has me covered with His Spiritual Armor and I walk through it.

Is God helping you through those rough patches?..

Check your experience…

"God either is or He isn't. What was our choice to be?" Big Book pg. 53

Lord, remind our hearts and quiet our minds in times of difficulty that You are with us no matter what, AMEN.

"When you go through deep waters and great trouble, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown!” Isaiah 43:2

Have a blessed day Y’all!!

Join me in looking at the things we face daily with passages from both the Big Book and Bible!

How about a daily dose of hope and inspired thought?
