TOOLBOX Series – Tool #3

Sometimes our own troubles overwhelm us.  The mountain appears to be so big – we can’t even see the sun.  Don’t let the devil get you all discombobulated with worry and fear.  Instead, focus on others and encourage them through their challenges.  It’s a great way to re-direct your focus away from yourself and on to helping someone else.  If you can’t think of anyone to encourage, ask the Holy Spirit for direction.  He will bring to your mind the name of someone in need.  You’d be surprised how a sincere smile, prayers, a note/text/email or an encouraging phone call can positively affect your co-worker, neighbor, or family member.  Also, whenever we put the needs of others before our own, our challenges diminish before our very eyes.  Go find the sun!
