When we are struggling or going through a difficult time, what do we focus our heart, mind, and attention on? Most often than not...our problems, our trials, or people involved, etc. That usually makes matters worse because we become occupied with our troubles, focus on self-pity, play a blame game, and/or lose the right perspectives (eternal/Biblical perspectives). Instead, we need to remind ourselves to look to the Lord for help because He knows what's best for us. We want His will (not ours) to be done, anyway.
"We wait in hope for the Lord; He is our Help and our Shield." Psalm 33:20
"God is our Refuge and Strength, and ever-present Help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging." Psalm 46:1-3
"Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the Author and Perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider Him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart." Hebrews 12:2-3
Bonus: I know I'm supposed to post just a picture with a Bible verse(s). I think that this song goes so well with my WFW; therefore, I would like to share it here with you as a bonus :). Hope you will be encouraged by it! Note: Please turn off my music playlist at the bottom of this page before you start the video.
Remember...through fire and storm, the Lord never leaves us nor forsakes us. I will choose to praise Him in the storm; I know where my help comes from.
