    What do you find most helpful when troubles come?

    Sometimes it is hard to be strong through our trials and tribulations.  We all reaction different ways.  I tend to study the Word even more.

    I read bible more, pray more, and watch Joyce meyer more.......call friends, ask people to pray for and with me, make myself get out and stay more busy.

      All of these things are great to do when troubles come.  Getting closer to God will always be a winner.  …keeping busy also does not hurt.  Be blessed.

      Leslie, Thank you for your excellent comment.  I use the same method when troubles come, and I always remind myself that God is in the midst of the storm.

    When i needed help dealing with my emotions & feelings when interacting with other people Doris, i used to play the lets see if any one can annoy me today game....When & if they try, remind yourself that your using them for vital practice, & use a lot of patience & "logic" (there only words :-)....If it's help to stop unwanted thoughts, the answer is mindful meditation using only your senses (takes a bit of practice)....Any trial or tribulation you get is there to teach/help/learn you, & i think we all know who sends them (begins with G)lol....The best decision you could ever make Doris would be the "most logical" decision, & if there isn't one try to find the "next best" logical answer, & that is the best anyone could ever do....If we're all down here learning, we have to be sent some trials & tribulations every once in a while....So all i try to do is learn from my mistakes if i can, & use "logic" in every decision i make (if i can)....It takes time but your'l get there in the end mate, you just have to have faith & take what ever comes with a big smile & a spring in your step. :-)

      Dave, The big smile and spring in your step can take you a long way.  Thank you for your thorough answer, your comments that made me lol and the ones that helped to reaffirm that we are here to learn, and it's best to yield to the teachable moment.
