Darren’s God Blog: Frustrated?

By Darren LaCroix | Darren's God Blog

Okay, we are all working on something. If you are like me, sometimes you pray AND work really hard, but what you’re praying about just doesn’t seem to come to fruition. I try to remind myself that no matter how bad my challenges are, someone has it worse. Sometimes that still does not seem like enough. My pastor suggested I memorize this passage.

Philippians 4:11-13

11 I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. 12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. 13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength.

Each day I say this out loud, as an affirmation, and try to burn it into my mind. It helps. What do you do? What passages help you? How do you internalize it?

Thank you God for Grace, Truth, Love, and Laughter,

What church do I attend? Verve Church in Las Vegas

P.S. Thank you, especially, for grace.
