You are on the verge, the cusp, the edge of a new week.
With a new week comes adventure, surprises, good news and success.
What also comes with this new week is…problems.
You may already be aware of them.
You identified the problems for this upcoming week, last week.
Or the problems ahead may be totally oblivious to you at this moment, but they are headed straight for you, even now.
They may be professional or personal.
A problem is a problem no matter what area of your life it affects.
Consider this insight, from someone much wiser than I…Solomon.
“A sensible man watches for problems ahead and prepares to meet them.” Proverbs 27:12
What steps have you taken to be prepared?
What additional steps are you positioned for if needed?
Anticipate the answer, even before you have totally processed the depth of the problem.
Is it an external or internal issue at work?
It is a problem with technology or is it with Tina down the hall?
Is it your siblings, your parents, your children or your spouse who are wreaking havoc in your life?
Be the solution to the problem no one else can solve.
Prayer, a positive attitude and patience.
“Don’t worry about anything. Instead, pray about everything. Tell God your needs and don’t forget to thank him for his answers.” Philippians 4:6
“For I can do everything God asks me to with the help of Christ who gives me strength and power.” Philippians 4:13
“Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love.” Ephesians 4:2
All three apply to personal or professional problems.
Problems which are ahead.
And now you are ready for them.
Have a great week.
