No matter how difficult your circumstance, it’s only a small fraction of the big picture of your life.

There’s so much more better days waiting for you.

If you had a boil on your finger, you wouldn’t because of the pain, take a knife and cut off your finger. Don’t let a temporary problem make you take a drastic action that could cause permanent damage to your precious future.

Don’t blow off your head because of a headache.

You always have hope. No situation, no matter how painful, lasts forever. You gotta believe it will get better, it’s the only way you’ll survive life when it gets tough.

Don’t limit the entirety of your life to your current circumstance. Your life’s so much bigger than whatever’s going on now.

Don’t lose focus.

Your current problem seems so big because it's right in your face, so it's all you can see from the valley of where you stand.

Climb up to the mountain of My promises to you in the Bible, and then you'll see that looming problem is really small, compared to the big picture of all the beautiful things coming for you.

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”- Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
