Seeing God in your Problems
This is a wonderful time of year, and yet, for many individuals, the season can trigger pain, anxiety and depression. There is the nonstop schedule, endless to-do lists, activities that turn into yelling matches, efforts to appease and satisfy a wish list that go unrecognized by entitled children. There is the unexpected accident or sickness, the blended family dynamics and challenges, not to mention difficult people beyond the walls of your home. Before you know it, life becomes out of control and unmanageable. Sadly, ‘tis the season when many turn to wrong coping mechanisms and unhealthy habits as a way to ignore or numb the pain. Life hurts. But Christmas Heals!
