        When frustrated, plan your next move. If nothing is going on except your frustration, plan how you will get busy (Get active). If too much is going on, plan how you will change your mindset with something relaxing that might take your mind off of _______.

        Second, call someone. They can probably take your mind in a new direction.

        Third, get busy with a hobby, sport, or musical instrument.

        Fourth, never let tomorrow’s potential problems, or yesterday’s problem ruin “Right now.” Currently, I am in a tough situation if tomorrow does not go well, so I “should” focus on making today a good day, and if tomorrow stinks, handle that when the potential problem is a “Today problem.”

        Fifth, ask yourself, “How important is this thing that is frustrating me.” Then think about 2 other things that are “Really important.” Then think some more about the really important things.

        Finally, think about something new that is vitally important. Pick a habit from the following article that you want to work on today, and this week. Your new habit just might help make your life better for a long time, and it might help you deal with temptation better as well.

        To fight frustration, study how to be content.

        Philippians 4:11-13 ESV
        Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. I can do all things through him who strengthens me.

        Consider praying: “Father, take away this spirit of drinking/drugs, and help me to be content.”

        Hebrews 13:5 ESV
        Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

        If money causes you to fall, read this often.

        1 Timothy 6:6-8 ESV
        But godliness with contentment is great gain, for we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world. But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content.”

        There are two things listed to do to have great gain. Study this verse and consider praying: “Father, help me to focus on godliness with contentment.”

        2 Corinthians 12:10 ESV
        For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

        Psalm 37:16 ESV
        Better is the little that the righteous has than the abundance of many wicked.”

        We have peace and a calm life when we live life God’s way.

        Psalm 16:11 ESV
        You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

        Prayers for contentment are prayers to know the path of life. I need nothing but the presence of God.

        Finally, what 3 things are you not content with that you should learn to be content with? When we live life upset at jobs, parents, spouses, and neighbors, (I could list a million things), satan takes that opening and uses discontentment against us to get us thinking about bad things.

        Study these verses regularly, and pray often about “what, or who” you need to be content with. Pray often to be content with your current situation.

        Finding contentment takes away one of Satan’s favorite weapons.

        Father, help me to be moderate and content.”

        Learn great new habits. Find joy.
