Sometimes, even when it’s not your fault, it’s still your problem.

Some will step up, take ownership and work toward a solution.

Some will complain and search for someone to blame.

And when they’re done complaining about it and/or trying to find out who’s to blame, it will STILL be their problem.

But then they’ll have less time to solve it.

#ItIsWhatItIs so #NowWhat

There will always be time AFTER you’ve solved a problem to take steps to prevent it from happening again.

and, of course, to complain and/or blame. But if you give in to that, you risk loss of respect because some people may see you as being as petty and vindictive instead of a gracious and competent problem solver they can trust.

If you are a person of faith, remember, the problem is no surprise to God. And if you have a relationship with Jesus, the Holy Spirit is your Help. You are not alone. Pray. Ask God for wisdom and discernment. As Him to guide you. To bless you with ideas. To equip you.

Problems happen. They are opportunities. To be a good steward of all the gifts you’ve been blessed with. To be a witness. To give thanks and credit for His faithfulness. And to frustrate Satan.
