So what is the right response to difficulty? If you’re not in it now, you’re going to go through it.
First of all confess your part.
If you brought it on yourself, admit it. Stop blaming other people. Stop making excuses. Face the problem and say, I brought this on myself.
If you've got a problem with drugs, admit it. If you’ve got a problem with alcohol, admit it. If you’ve got a problem with your temper, you admit it. If you’ve a problem with your mouth, admit it.
The Bible in Proverbs 28.13 (LB) says, “A man who refuses to admit his mistakes can never be successful. But if he confesses and forsakes them, he gets another chance.”
Accept responsibility. What are you pretending is not a problem? First admit when you are the problem and turn the light on and you won’t be afraid anymore.
Just a thought from the front porch…
