Five Steps for Handling Frustration

Here are five simple steps for dealing with frustrations in your life.

1- Ask yourself, "Did I cause it?" The Bible says, "A man reaps what he sows." (Galatians 6:7 NIV) We are frustrated by many things in life because we bring them on ourselves.

2-Ask yourself, "What can I learn from it?" Romans 8:28 says, "All things work together for good." (NIV) There are many bad things in the world, but all things work together. God can even take the negative and turn it into a positive if we will let Him.

Use irritation as an opportunity to become more like Christ.

3-Thank God in the situation. 1 Thessalonians 5:18 says, "In everything give thanks." (NIV) You don't have to be thankful for a bad situation. But you can be thankful in a bad situation. Frustration may be a blessing in disguise.

4-Turn the frustration into a funny, a humorous event. The Bible says, "A cheerful heart is good medicine." (Proverbs 17:22 NIV) A sense of humor is God's antidote for anger and frustration.

5-Ask God to fill you with His love. Why? Because 1 Corinthians 13:5 says, "Love is not easily angered." (NIV) Love is self-giving, not self-serving. We get irritated, because we think everyone and everything has to revolve around us. Love concentrates on the other person. Jesus faced constant frustrations, but He never got irritated. He always made time for people. We get so preoccupied with our own things that we forget that people are the priority in life.

“Love does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil;”

‭‭I Corinthians‬ ‭13:5‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
