Why so many problems?
The saga with my computer lasted 4 days. I had projects and reports to complete, and so much to do… It wasn’t because of all the work; the problem was that the computer stopped working every 10 to 15 minutes! I was seriously day-dreaming of throwing it against the wall several times. Thankfully, after the busiest weekend, I was able to finish my projects. But I was only able to finish them because I found out what was the problem.
Just as computers stop working for a various internal reasons, we can also fail in various areas of our life, if our spiritual life is not going well. Try to remember the last time you had a problem with your husband or friend. How was your relationship with God doing? You can perhaps say it wasn’t bad, but it was probably a bit “dormant” and not as active as it could be.
When God is the center of our lives, we are not able to focus on the problem. It’s as though He shines His light over every area of our lives. That doesn’t mean we won’t have problems. But surely, we will react to them in a different way, as though God were orienting us the whole time.
If you want to change in regards to your marriage, work place, parents, friends, take my advice: fix your internal problems.
