Get a fresh start for Easter! God can help!

Many today find themselves physically and mentally drained from life’s struggles. Our society has become more stressful and demanding than ever. It’s common to become overwhelmed and disheartened from the trials and tribulations of life. It’s easy to become bogged down in these forms of sufferings, and at times, we may believe that no help is available. We can think of God as a one way street, only helping us when we’re in dire need and if only we’re begging ourselves for His help. Through God, there is hope and relief available to us, even in the toughest of times.

It’s essential to understand that God only wants the best for us; while we may not see it or even feel it at the time, He wants us to stay strong and remain faithful even in difficult times. He is with us every step of the way. No matter what burden or struggle life throws our way, the Lord is always by our side, ready to turn it into a blessing.


God is our source of strength, even when life gets us down, He’s still our rock and refuge. Here are five ways of how God can help us as we struggle through life:

1. Ask for Guidance
God is always ready and willing to provide us with guidance and direction. If we’re feeling lost, asking for His help should be the first step. He knows our hearts and desires, and will lead us in the right direction, if we are willing to listen. When struggling with a problem or decision, turn to God for the right answer. He can help us clarify our thoughts and make the right decision. He can show us how to make the best of any situation and will always open up a path before us if we’re willing to follow it.

2. Pray for Strength

When we find ourselves too weak to continue the fight, it’s time to turn to God for strength and courage. He is a mighty and powerful God and can give us the emotional and physical strength to carry on. Praying for strength will help us to not lose focus on what’s truly important, even in the midst of life’s struggles. Be reminded that every struggle brings a blessing and God is willing to pick us up and make us stronger than before.


3. Trust in God’s Plan

It can be easy to become discouraged when the hardships become unbearable. We can start to worry and stress, but we must remember to trust in the Lord’s perfect plan. God works in mysterious ways and He knows what’s best for us. Though we may not understand the process, we should be faithful and keep going forward, knowing that God has our back.

4. Rely on Faith

We are often tested in our faith as a result of life’s struggles. Through these difficulties, our trust in God must remain strong. Knowing God can get us through whatever it is we’re facing can provide us with a sense of strength and security. Though we’re walking in the dark, God is walking with us, providing light and hope.


5. Look for Opportunities

During times of suffering, it’s important to look for the silver lining in each situation. The Lord can bring forth great opportunities and blessings if we’re willing to look and accept them. He can provide us with resources and options that offer us a better future. We should be alert and use our energy to find the positive side of every situation.

God should always be our source of help and hope in times of distress. He can lift us up even when we’re down and provide us with guidance and direction, if we ask and trust in Him. When it all becomes too overwhelming, remembering these five ways of how God can help us can be comforting. We can always find hope and strength in the Lord, no matter how dark things may seem.
