Problems:

problem-solution-road-sign-illustra-eps-vector_k12452682You’ve heard me say it in different ways, but always try to face any problem with clarity of thought. Of course, at first your vision is muddied by pain, emotion, fear, frustration and all the other emotions that tag along with problems. Push through all that until you can ask yourself what you know and what you don’t know about the problem, and break it down into its smallest components– remembering all the while that God is with you all the way. That is why problems are often opportunities in disguise. Seek God’s wisdom, apply the gifts and talents he has given you and act on each small piece of the problem.  The solution will build from those pieces.
