The Single Most Important Question To Ask When Life Is Hard
There is no debating the fact that life can be hard. We all go through the ups and downs on the rollercoaster of life. The problem is that many people have no idea how to respond during those trials. As a result, their attitude and effectiveness during life becomes completely dictated by circumstances. But it doesn’t have to be that way. There is a question you can ask in the midst of those hard times that can completely change how you view the trials you are facing.
1- It helps you remember that God is in control.
2- It changes how you tell others about what you are facing.
3- It takes your eyes off of the problem and places them on God.
4- It changes your focus from “Why?” to “What?”
The question is no longer “Why is this happening?”, it is now “What is God teaching?”. It is a reminder that God always has a purpose – even when we don’t see it immediately. Our job is to get on board with what God wants to do in our lives.
The next time you are facing the hard times of life, pause, take a deep breath, and ask, “What does God want me to learn from this?”. It really will make a difference.
