When I feel frustrated for anything that goes wrong and I cant find a solution at the moment I get this wrong feeling, I see everything so bad , and all bad comes to me and have terrible days , I ask myself : Why , why is this happening to me ??? Then I start thinking of other people that have bigger problems than mine like having 4 children and dont a have a husband , dont have a job, like having a sickness with no cure, like having a kid in a gang, like not having arms and legs, and think : how can they live like that? I realized that everybody has a diferent burden, the one that they can carry. Its then , when I realized that I have more than others and feel SO BLESSED, I come down and think better about my situation and try to relax and ask for these people in need, my problems seems so small and i can carry them on and stop feeling that way.

Hi! When we focus on what is happening around us, we sure will have a lot of reason to feel frustrated, depressed, sad and worried. But when we realize what we have in Christ, the eternal and unchanging blessings we have, then we can find enough reason to be thankful. We have Jesus as Savior, we have God's Word that is full of His everlasting promises, we have a home reserved for us in heaven and that all these things will pass. When we remember all of these things, then our thanksgiving will turn to praise!

I was having one of those days just yesterday where I felt so worthless and that nothing was going right when in fact I was blessed to get a bus card I did not have to pay for, my daughter and I both got boots we so badly needed, and I am getting a grocery cart so going to the store won't be as much a pain for me. There are still a lot of issues to deal with but those things and many many other blessings I just overlook because I am focused on what is not working instead of what is working. You are so right, there are people going through so many unimaginable things and would be very happy to have my little problems. Thanks for the reminder even more.

I realized that i am blessed enough to have this life, here in my country theres a lot poor people who cannot even eat 3 times per day, have nice clothes to and slippers to wear. I thank god the father for giving me this life and doing my best to help those in need.

I always think of others who are in worse situation than me and I feel so blessed to walk this life having more than I needed. It would have been difficult to go on living if life is full of miseries. I ask no more but a fulfilled life and am blessed to be still walking around with a healthy body and a sane mind.

It's true that each one of us has his/her own burden to carry, and that we are given that burden because we can carry that with the help of our God above who loves us so well. And yes, we are blessed no matter what the situation we may be in. This reminds me of the song about blessing that we should count them one by one, and not focus on the things we think we are deprived of. As we count our blessings, we realize that we have everything that we need and we even are provided of things that we don't actually deserve. But because the God loves us so much, we are blessed with so much things much important than all these earthly stuff: important things such as the gift of life, undeserved grace and forgiveness for all our sins. If u feel frustrated and feeling down, just call out on HIM and He will be there for you. Read a devotional book and the Bible everyday, and you will definitely realize how truly blessed you are. Have a good day! God bless.

Hi there. When you need inspiration; look to your loved ones, your children, your friends and family. Believe in them as they would believe in you. See inspiration in a Solo Dad working two jobs to keep food on the table for his children. See inspiration in a person beating cancer. See inspiration in a person who gives their life to save another. See inspiration in those who help others and give their best. To see things like this, you have to WANT to see them. An act of random kindness at a time can change the world. Peace.

I get that feeling too. When I have a really bad day and start getting depressed, I get all selfish and start asking why all these bad things have to happen to me. But then I stop and think of those who are far more misfortune than I am like those poor people struggling for food day by day in the third world countries whereas I have a home with food in the fridge. And yes, I realized how blessed I am. But you just can't help it when you have a bad day but always remember that there is always someone who faces a worse day than you but has been able to cope with it like the homeless who battle each day to survive. It does sadden me how much we differ compared to those in third world countries. While we worry about how our car just got smashed, there's someone out there who is walking the deserts for miles just for water.
