Frustration is a result of anxiety and impatience. It happens when you try to do things apart from God, maybe not intentionally, but you do things in your own strength. Not because you don’t trust God, but because you’ve lost sight of Him, so you begin to do too much, too quickly. Sometimes, life can feel as if it’s throwing a hundred different things at you, all at the same time, and if you’re not careful, you’ll try to catch every single thing that life throws your way, by yourself. Then when something small is thrown your way, you lose it, because you’ve been trying to keep it all together. God is saying, “Calm down. I’m right here. It’s okay, and it will be okay. Do you trust me with your life? Okay, then focus!” It’s okay to take a breather. Anxiety will tell you if you take a breather, you might miss something, but you won’t miss a beat if you put your cares in the hands of God. Not just the big ones, the little ones too! Whenever you feel frustrated, remember:
1. You’re never alone. God is always with you.
2. Breathe and focus on God. He promised to keep you in perfect peace if you stay focused on Him.
3. You don’t have to do things in your own strength. God will help you. Ask God how to approach the situation. He said, if you ask for wisdom, He will give it to you without judgment.
4. You can’t control everything, but God can do what you can’t.
Now, calm down. Take a deep breath in, and a deep breath out, letting all your frustrations go. Everything will be okay. You’ve got this, and God’s got you! Be blessed. ❤️
Prayer: God I’d been frustrated and I had no clue why. I’ve been quick tempered, anxious and emotional, and I apologize. Forgive me, Lord. Thank you for revealing the source of my frustration. From this day forward, I will focus on you, trust you in all things, and seek your counsel before I approach any situation. In Jesus name. Amen.
