Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people.

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

Instead of being hard on yourself regarding your weaknesses, look at them from this perspective.

Those who are hot-tempered stir up strife, but those who are slow to anger calm contention.

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing, a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 (NIV)

Embrace your current season and live it as authentically as you possibly can.

But who can discern their own errors? Forgive my hidden faults.
Psalm 19:12 (NIV)

It’s impossible to have a truly objective perspective of your own ways. Pray that God would reveal your ways to you, so that you can course correct and best represent Him. Ask Him to guide you in putting solid counsel around you, who are willing to lovingly challenge you to be better.

“Learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow’s cause.”

Consider allowing only the above to be the burdens you carry.

“How many loaves do you have?” Jesus asked.
Mark 8:5 (NIV)

Notice that Jesus asked His disciples what they had. He didn’t ask them to perform a miracle or feed the people, He just asked them to give what they had to work with. Offer up what you have and let Jesus do what only He can.

Light is sweet, and it pleases the eyes to see the sun.
Ecclesiastes 11:7 (NIV)

Next time you see the sun, take the time to let it please your eyes with its sweet light. Perhaps a moment of gratitude for the beauty around us can offer perspective amid the barrage of daily worries that come our way.

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.
Philippians 2:3,4 (ESV)

Consider how your perspective will be more well-rounded and wise if you consider others perspectives before your own.

Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
1 Corinthians 15:58 (NIV)

The more fully you give yourself to the work of the Lord, the less you will be moved by things that aren’t.
