Crying out

Updated on November 26, 2014

Your faith being tested

So often God tests us with everyday things that may not mean a lot to us but mean more than we know. I often think about the daily actions I make, weather it is what I eat or how I respond to anything that comes my way.

I was thinking about this because of an argument I had with my mother and the topic was her health. She is currently going through some health issues that I can easily avoid with the food choices I make on a daily basis.

It made me stop and appreciate the small things God puts in our path. I have come to realize that my mothers faith is being tested. All her life she has made certain food choices that have affected her weight, mind, and ultimately her life. So often we don't realize the amount and type of food we consume and fail to consider what God says we shouldn't eat. One of them is pork.

Praising in the Storm

When hard times comes it seems as though our natural instincts are to just whine and cry. Instead of feeling bad for ourselves we should praise God in the mist of our struggles. Even though it can be extremely tough at times this is the best thing we can do.

I have personally tried this when I am in a pickle that I think I can't get out of. What I have noticed that when I sing, dance, even just put music on is that the stress seems to just fad away and all that's left is a stronger person that can make wise decisions to find a solution to the problem I am having.

So the next time you are going through the difficulties of this life, just praise God and thank him for the victory that is closer than you think.

Methods of relaxing

According to the Huffington Post the 20 ways to de-stress are:

Go For A 10 Minute Walk, Breathe Deeply, Visualize, Eat A Snack (Mindfully!),

Buy Yourself A Plant, Step Away From The Screen, Pucker Up, Try This Naam Yoga Hand

Trick, Hang Up, Then Turn Off Your Phone, Put On Some Music,

Treat Yourself! Eat One (ONE!) Candy, Or, On The Other Hand, Plug In,

Chew A Piece Of Gum, Watch A Viral Video, Progressive Muscle Relaxation,

Seriously, Turn Off Your Phone, See Your BFF, Eat A Banana (Or A Potato!),

Try Eagle Pose, or Craft

For details on theses go to:


Today there are so many way that we can connect to so many people and it has become so much easier than it was before. It is important to remember and recognize that even though technology can have many beneficial factors it can also make you do things you wouldn't normally do.

An example is when you are on any social media platforms and begin to whine and then end up fighting with the other person. Its always best to tell your troubles and concerns to God. He is the only one that can change your situation. Prayer is the best weapon you can have when facing hard times in life; all we have to do is cry out to Him.
