When troubles come, (and they will) our minds tend to think crazy thoughts. No matter how we try, we tend to think negatively about the outcome. Try to brush aside those negative thoughts, thoughts of anger, thoughts of bondage, fear, sadness, loneliness, defeat etc,. “God has not given us the spirit of fear, but power, love and a sound mind” (2 Timothy 1:7).
I thank God for my husband who balances me out, especially emotionally. He talks me out of anger and doubt, he picks me up when I’m down, he is my best friend. I would be guilty of making unwise decisions and more than a few bad choices without his loving guidance.
We all make bad choices, the thing is, we fail to accept that our choices or decisions may have caused them. Just remember, our God, who is rich in mercies loves us. He made us and He knows us better than we know ourselves. He will not leave us nor will He forsake us, BUT! in order to receive His mercies, comfort and guidance, we must strive to live in His will (by His word).
Be encouraged, “Weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning” (Psalm 30:5). Tell yourself, this too shall pass. Thank God
