Managing Challenging Seasons

I have a good friend who has a saying, “Everybody has STUFF!” That’s her way of saying each of us has our own set of challenges.

If you think you’re the only one navigating through life’s difficulties, just take your focus off yourself for a moment.

Perhaps, you’ve been faced with a difficult season of health or financial issues; hardships that linger can cause us to lose hope. The longer the season, the more difficult it can be to stand. In seasons like these it’s so important that we are rooted and grounded in truth.

Friend, do you ever feel like you are in an obscure place, living off in the middle of nowhere, or anonymously dwelling in a crowd, with no particular gifts or talents?
