Coloring Those Blue Days

Sometimes I have those days when everything seems to go wrong, I don’t feel well, or I’m just off my best game. But there has to be a better solution than complaining on Facebook or sitting on the couch staring at the tv. Regardless of how I feel, I will never get that day back! So I started paying attention to what helped me get through those days the best way possible.

My Game Plan

1. Acknowledge the problems. Ps. 62:8 “Trust in Him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah.” Take one time each day and present your problems before the Lord. Pour out your heart and then the rest of the day, refuse the thought when it comes up. Purposely put it from your mind.

2. Focus on the positive. Phil. 4:4 ”Rejoice in the Lord always, and again I say, Rejoice.” Thank God for everything you can think of. Start with the basics and you’ll think of more. Continually come back to this all day.

3. Keep moving. 1 Cor. 4:2 “Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.” Often on down days it’s tempting to sit and brood or skip your normal work. Don’t do that! Once you’ve poured out your heart to God and thanked Him, be faithful to what God has given you to do.

It might not end up being your best day ever but I think you’ll find that the days you accomplish this turn out better than the days you don’t even try!
