Understand That Things Could Be Worse!It could be worse! NeedEncouragement.com

Please contact us if you have questions or comments or want encouragement.

I try to remember that things could be worse at any time. For example, I could get lost in the woods, but it could be worse. It could start to rain, or I could have a sprained ankle or be hungry or thirsty. (I am sure you got my point)  so I try to be content in all my situations the best I can and ask God to direct my path.


When I make a list of things I can be grateful for, that constantly encourages me and puts my thinking in a better way!  Helen Keller once said, “The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision.”  I need to keep my eyes on Jesus, for He loves me; He will point me to Himself when I am down.  I am thankful that he strengthens and comforts me as I keep my eyes on Him. ~ Bill Greguska


Philippians 4:12  I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.

Count your blessings, not your problems! Things could be worse!

Your situation might be challenging right now, but it could be worse. Sometimes it is good to see some of the bad that could have happened to you. It puts your present and past pain and also bad memories into perspective. The expression is true that it is always darker before dawn. Whatever God allows your life, He has a plan and reason for that.

Be patient and trust that God is in control and that you will soon find out why God allows certain things to happen to you in your life.  Trust in God because He will never leave you or forsake you, even during bad times. When we choose the broad road instead of the narrow highway, we can be assured that at some point or another that the result of taking the wide road will boomerang back in negative ways. That is because the broad road is not God’s road. That is how things could be worse when we take the wide road. ~ Bill Greguska
