Problems

I truly believe that there is no problem that has no solution. If there is no solution, then we shouldn't worry or get upset over it.

The way to solve a problem is to find a solution and implement it.

A good leader is a problem solver, he doesn't let problems continue to vex him.

Unfortunately a lot of us are upset over problems when they come, we lament, we hate them, we grumble over them.

That will not solve it.

Rather, let's take a page from the Bible 1 Thess 5:18 "give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus".

Welcome problems, see it as a way to prevent further bigger problems down the road.

The one thing that I have learnt is that people sometimes don't want to hear the solution. If you are overweight, the solution is to diet and to exercise. If you are having problems with money, the solution is to work out a budget and to stick to it. If you have problems with motivation, read up books on motivation and learn techniques.

Life isn't easy. Noone said it was. Jesus said that in this world you will have trouble. Sometimes it isn't solved overnight, but He did promise that He will be with us through it all.



"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world." (John 16:33)
