I am continually working on this - I am a fixer. My first reaction to a problem, an issue or a situation, is to fix it. I’ve learned to slow this down, though. Because my solutions aren’t always best for someone else and maybe they just need to be listened to and cared for, not “fixed.” Sometimes that’s what I need from myself, too.
I’ve learned that my personal circumstances are not a reflection of how God feels about me. I don’t have trouble necessarily because I deserve it or because God is mean - it’s because “in this world you will have trouble.” God wants to see how we live through it. Are we faithful and love others as we persevere, or do we whine and complain and stop moving forward? God loves us the same either way - but our joy diminishes quickly when we complain. You’re never alone when you go through stuff. The Lord is always with you #choosejoy #speaklife #godiswithyou #christianliving #yourjourneytobeingwhole #dailydevotional
