Daily Encouragement: May 11, 2021

Okay, hear me out...

I know it sounds weird, but have you ever thought about being thankful for your problems?

In my daily devotional today.. it talks all about this. (I read Jesus Calling: Enjoying Peace in His Presence you can purchase HERE)

"Thank Me for your problems. Then ask Me to show you My way to handle the situation. The very act of thanking Me releases your mind from its negative focus. As you turn your attention to Me, the problem fades in significance and loses its power to trip you up."

Insert mind blown emoji here.

Seriously, taking our problems to God and asking him to show us how to handle them.. will make them seem way less big. It's crazy to think about.. but, so true.

Pray this prayer today: Dear Heavenly Father, today I ask you to help me take a look at my problems and deal with each situation specifically. You know exactly what I'm struggling with and I pray peace into those situations right now. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
