James 3:10, NKJV “1 Samuel 30:6, KJV “And David was greatly distressed; for the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the Lord his God.”

Acknowledge Your Problem, but be willing to accept help.
Start looking for things you can be thankful for.

James 3:10, NKJV “Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.”

Don’t allow your mind (anxiety) to make the problem bigger than it is. Conversations with ourselves can be called Mood Managers or Mood Monsters. Learn to encourage yourself in the Lord by replacing the worry, stress, and darkness, with the lights of God’s Word and Promises. Cast your cares upon God, not your responsibilities.

Ask yourself will this problem really matter in eternity?
