Problems Are Just Daily Challenges In Life

Overwhelming problems can be very annoying at time; it can drain us emotionally, make us look silly and naïve, and give us many sleepless nights and wasteful days.

Problems can be very depressing when there is no apparent solution in sight. We become indecisive, hot temper and easy to get mad at people.

But when appropriate and workable solution is at hand, we become invigorated, motivated and excited when facing problems.

Sometimes I wonder whether we are born with the innate drive, desire and knowledge to face problems.

The Lord God said each day has enough of its own worries and troubles. We are not to worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.

As such we are born to face many problems and challenges in life; each day with its new worries and troubles. Then come the night when we must rest and committed them to the Lord God. And the cycle continues.

There is not a day without problems. Some come easy with practice and skill; some solvable with a bit more patience and persistence; some only can be solved with time and great effort. Some just remain there, never to go away, a thorn in the flesh!

Problem solving and prayer answering come together; we need spiritual insight and scriptural guidance. The world is not just physical; there are many things that we claim to know but have no knowledge about. It’s time to get humble and submit to the authority of the Almighty God.

Problem solving and advice giving come together; no man is an island and we need not live and die alone. Good family and friends abound in our lives. It’s time to be friendlier and more approachable.

Each day has its own toil and beauty. The ultimate question is how we deal with problems in life and how we live with problems. No escapism and fruitless dreams; no fantasy and lingering guilt; no outright lies and deception. Each day has enough of its own worries and troubles, its own unique stories and ideas, and its own heat and pressure.

A step backward and away from the scene will be nice; it helps to see the problem clearer and solve the problem better. What we need to face problem is a clear and unobstructed horizon.

Problems never go away. It will continue to haunt and terrify people.

But problem is not a problem when we don’t call them problems.

Problems are just daily challenges in life.

How true it is. Problems help us develop our minds and grow mature in thought. I think it also keeps us young.

The way you defined the problems made the instinctive irritation for the various misfortunes into the pleasure to read, so to speak. Thank you. When we step back a little for to get the whole picture of the confusion, it just disappear. So after reading your post I look at my current limitations not as a source to complaint for my sad destiny but the blessing to grasp what is what and respond to my reality with hot thank you for the lesson to talk positively.

"Consider it pure joy when you face many trials" James says. How can we? Well, one way as your post says is to look at problems or trials from another point of view, as challenges. We can have joy as well knowing that if we submit ourselves to the authority of God, all be well in the end.
