Are you losing the reasons to keep going in your life?
Perhaps, you have experienced a series of challenges that left you feeling weary and defeated today.
No matter how bad things might seem right now, know that you can always overcome. Beyond Small Talk is here to help you!
Learn these 3 tips to find hope again amid challenging times, from guest Ruther Urquia who has also gone through rough patches in his life during the pandemic:
1. Trust God
Your situation today is not the end of your journey. Keep on believing that God is weaving these challenges to lead you to the best destination. The roadblocks you are facing today are part of your journey toward a purpose-driven life.
“You should not measure your life with just a single episode. God is using all events in your life to create His plan,” Ruther explained.
Trust and believe that these circumstances will eventually turn out to be your great testimonies that would bring glory to God and uplift others in the future.
2. Choose to thank God
You are probably in this season of your life when happiness seems a blurry choice to make, but there is always room for gratitude.
You can always choose to thank God for your life today regardless of your situation.
“You can choose to be happy,” Ruther remarked.
It may not be the breakthrough that you are expecting but choose to thank God for He has sustained you all this time. Hope is possible when people choose to look at the blessing of life and daily provision for whatever you need.
3. Continue to have a grateful heart
In the face of hopelessness, gratitude has the power to give life.
Letting go of what was lost and being grateful for what you still have can keep you grounded and hopeful. Remain grateful every day and remember that your all-knowing Heavenly Father 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 feel defeated, frustrated, and even dismayed in your life, remember to fix your eyes on Jesus. With His help, you can overcome. You will receive the unshakable hope from Him amid your challenging season.
“And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.” (1 Peter 5:10 ESV)
