Is Frustration Getting You Down?
Please contact us if you have questions, comments, or want. Encouragement.
Frustration bothers me more than I would like to admit; it can sometimes lead to anxiety or anger if not appropriately managed. Sometimes being too Hungry, Angry, Lonely, or Tired can add to the frustration of whatever happens outside of us.
But when I trust the Lord, I am confident and comfortable. I am on top of my game! Keeping a clear mind and emotions helps to lessen the chances of falling into the trap of frustration. When I keep my eyes on the Lord, I can put my frustration into perspective by reaching out to God and others for help! ~ Bill Greguska

Are You Feeling Frustrated? Have You Considered How Nick Vujicic Must Feel?
Some Frustration In My Life!
Things You Can Do To Help Deal With Frustration!
1. Are you spinning your wheels in the mud?
- Is all that you are feeling pure frustration? Does that sound like what you are going through? When they face too much frustration, many get a bad attitude or quit what frustrates them. You have positive choices to choose from!
2. Get busy and focus on what God calls you to do.
- Frustration lingers and sometimes becomes a mindset or even a defeated lifestyle. Think clearly and focus on solutions rather than focusing on the problems that are frustrating you. Stop worrying and get proactive.
3. Start a mini journal during this time.
- Having a daily diary can be of great help, but, for now, a short journal for a month or two., Please focus on the good we are doing and the things we ought to be grateful for. Try to learn where you are falling short and make appropriate adjustments.
4. Have a goal or, in other words, a big-picture outlook.
- Be sure to include God’s will, not just your choice. Figure out a plan with the help of prayer and godly counsel. Be specific about your thoughts and goals, and make attainable goals to reach them.
5. Pick Out The Good In Your Frustrating Situation.
- Even if it feels like nothing is working, look closely, and you will probably find at least something that is going right. Then you need to dig in with some prayer, and topical Bible is reading on whatever is pulling you down. Reach out to a friend, pastor, or counselor to help you escape your frustration mode.
6. Do not allow distractions that suck your energy and focus away from God.
- You have responsibilities that you need to deal with. Take care of the giant boulders and the small stones when time allows.
7. There are many ways to skin a cat.
- So, do not think there is only one way to escape where accepted your frustrating situation. There are often many solutions to the same problem, but beware that if your answer is not in line with what God teaches, then do not consider it a solution but rather a temptation from the evil one, the devil.
8. Think about how good it will be to stop being frustrated.
- Do what you need to do to get that dark cloud from over your head. When I was younger, my mom used to tell me that my frustration or hurt would make me cry, but sometimes it is best to laugh at our negative situations to put them in perspective. Keep your eyes on the Lord, and be careful not to let frustration drain you mentally or emotionally.
Frustration Or A Undiscovered Blessing?
9. Get into the habit of reading your Bible daily.
- Start slow and build up in time. How can you expect not to be frustrated if you are not reading your Bible to be fed?
10. Get into the habit of praying.
- The best time for me to pray is first thing in the morning before I do anything. Take a walk and consciously make your walking partner God, communicate your thoughts and feelings to Him simultaneously, and seek diligently to hear what God is trying to teach and show you.
11. Reach out to someone mature in their faith to help you.
- Do not be too proud to ask for some help. Most people would be more than happy to help come alongside you to help you. Proverbs 27:17 “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.” Someone you trust and feel safe sharing personal issues. Accountability can be a big help to you.
12. Be Sure You Are Participating In A Bible-Believing Church.
- Remember that the church is not only there to feed you, but you can also become involved and help others.
13. Have friendships and fellowship with other believers.
- We are not in this world to walk alone; friends can be significant support and outlet to associate with others who care about each other.
14. Start looking to where you can serve others in your family.
- Also, in a volunteer way, like helping at a meal program or driving someone to get their groceries. Maybe God wants you to visit a hospital or nursing home and write a card to someone in need, but make sure you get out of yourself and serve someone else.
15. Keep your eyes on God.
- Otherwise, you will keep falling into the same types of frustration.
16. Share your frustrations with others.
- Often, a friend can give you an insight that will bring light to your problems.
Let The Lord Help You Through Your Frustration!
17. Keep track on paper in the form of a journal.
- This will help you to be able to track your progress and note where you fall to be able to learn from it. Keep track of the progress you are making. Even if the improvement is slight and slow, you are making progress. God will never leave you or forsake you.
18. Brainstorm ideas that can get you beyond your frustration.
- When you brainstorm, remember that any thoughts are possible solutions, but you can pick out the best ideas when you are done with the list.
19. Put your frustration on the back burner.
- You do not let failure get the best of you. Set aside time like 7:00 pm to no longer talk or think about your frustrations to help assure that you can get a good night’s sleep.
20. Turn this scenario around.
- If someone came to you with the frustration you are going through right now, what would you counsel them to do or not do?
21. Stop blaming yourself or others for your frustration.
- Sometimes, life happens, and we need to come to God in prayer and let God deal with things for us. You will only be more frustrated if you keep blaming yourself or others.
22. Put your frustration into perspective.
- Will this frustration still be a big problem in five or ten years? Most likely, the answer will be no.
23. Allow yourself to be distracted.
- You can do this by going to a movie, eating with a good friend, or doing something fun that will take your mind off your frustration for a while.
24. Think about how God has solved past failures in your life.
- Look back and thank God, and now look forward and thank God that He will help you as He has done in the past.
25. Volunteer to help someone who needs some help.
- When we do this, we get out of our frustration and help someone else deal with it.
26. Get off your seat and get out and get some exercise.
- This will help your physical body regarding overall health. A significant benefit of training is the functional effects of “endorphins” that naturally will make you feel better. Combine that with prayer and reading the Bible. You got a winning combination.
