Are you losing the reasons to keep going in your life?
Are you weary and feeling defeated from the seemingly never-ending series of challenges during the pandemic?
You are not alone.
Here are three tips to remain hopeful amid challenging times from Beyond Small Talk guest, Ruther Urquia who has also gone through rough patches in his own life this pandemic.
1. Trust God
Your situation today is not your final destination.
Keep on believing that God is using these challenges to lead you to the best destination. The roadblocks you are facing today are part of your journey towards a purpose-driven life.
“You should not measure your life with just a single episode. God is using all these events in your life to create His plan,” Ruther explained.
More than that, believe that these circumstances will eventually be part of a beautiful testimony of God’s faithfulness in the future.
2. Choose to thank God
“You can’t choose to be happy,” Ruther remarked.
And probably, you are in this season of your life when happiness is not in the offering, but there is always room for gratitude.
You can always choose to thank God for your life today regardless of your situation.
It may not be the breakthrough that you are expecting, but choose to thank God for the blessing of life and daily provision that He continuously provides for you.
3. Remain grateful to God
Amid the challenging season of your life, keep a grateful heart.
Remaining grateful to God every day will keep you grounded and hopeful that our all-knowing God can turn things around in His perfect time.
God will never abandon you even in this season of your life.
“Whatever you’re going through, God is with you,” Ruther encouraged.
So, the next time you will feel defeated, frustrated, and dismayed in your life, remember to fix your eyes on the Lord. You will receive the unshakable hope from Him even during your challenging season.
