Some days are harder than others.
Whether it’s because something happened to you, something distressing on the news, or you’re ambushed by those thoughts that occasionally cross your mind.
Bad days happen, we can not escape them but we can be prepared for them. When you’re prepared for them, they are a little easier.
Acknowledge that it’s reality and there is no cosmic conspiracy against you.
Believe that it won’t last. Depending upon what it is, the time of discomfort, pain or annoyance will vary but it won’t last.
Control what you can yet know that for the most part, you can’t control much.
Decide that you will get through it. You can determine your attitude though anything you have to persevere through.
Embrace it as something you can learn from and eventually encourage others because you overcame your bad day, moment or season.
Friends are necessary to help you persevere. You need them and they need you but nobody can help you unless you let them.
God is with you even when you don’t see it. Trust his promises and know that His mercies are new every morning. Thank you Lord for new mornings!
Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
