What To Do When Life Is Hard

by adustyframe ~ January 11th, 2012

I’m not the expert, but I’ve been through some pretty hard things! Today, in Bible study, I thought about this and scribbled it down quickly.

When life is hard:

1. Spend time with God

2. Listen to praise music

3. Plaster Bible verses around your home. Tape them to the wall by the kitchen sink or bathroom sink. Put them on the fridge–on notecards in your Bible, in a frame.

4. Stay busy–don’t sit around and mope and think about how hard everything is.

5. Take time to rest and care for yourself–I know that sounds the opposite of what I just said but it isn’t. If you’re exhausted, everything looks so much worse.

6. Focus on the good God brings to your life. Write blessings down.

7. Enjoy nature.

8. Be creative.

9. Be honest with friends–make sure they are trustworthy!

10. Do something relaxing.

11. Get counseling if you need help to cope.

12. Take time to laugh.
