Dealing with Family Stress – Biblical Approach

By Albertus S.

There is not any single family without problems, and the unsolved problems can cause family stress.
Most of problems are the ones that couples have never expected before, ranging from financial aspect, sickness, education for children, prodigal sons, disagreeable habits and character of the partner that are disclosed after getting married, etc, etc.
These all things would result in unhappiness in the family.

It’s natural that people are trying everything to make them happy with their life, and think that marriage is a means to get happy. This concept is totally wrong. However, getting married and having a family is absolutely a good thing as it complies with what God says in the Bible in Genesis 2 chapter 18: “Now the Lord God said, It is not good (sufficient, satisfactory) that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper meet (suitable, adapted, complementary) for him”.

Now, why then have there been many people who have family stress and they are not happy with their marriage? The answer is because men have no good relationship with God. They try to solve their problem in the marriage by relying on their own strength and not the power from God.

God loves man who is virtually His creation. He sent His Son to the earth to become a man called Jesus Christ about 2000 years ago, who taught all the people that Father in heaven really loves them, and wants them to worship Him and thus be blessed through obeying His commands.

We now come to the point of the blessed family. The blessed family will have eternal happiness coming from God despite any problems the family has.

How do you get your family blessed by God? There is only on way: accept God through Jesus Christ in your life and obey His commands.
This is in line with what God has said in Psalm 128 chapter 1: “BLESSED (HAPPY, fortunate, to be envied) is everyone who fears, reveres, and worships the Lord, who walks in His ways and lives according to His commandments”, and the blessing will be like what is said in chapter 2: “For you shall eat [the fruit] of the labor of your hands; happy (blessed, fortunate, enviable) shall you be, and it shall be well with you”, and chapter 3: ”Your wife shall be like a fruitful vine in the innermost parts of your house; your children shall be like olive plants round about your table”.

So that the happiness and joy should not actually be something that a couple struggles for in the family but they are the results of the husband and wife obeying God’s commandments and thereby being blessed with eternal happiness and joy.  Couple should ask for God’s help in dealing with family stress.
With the blessing from God, your will receive the right solution to your problem that probably you have never thought of.
Problems are certainly still there, but with the help from God there will be always a way out.

This formula will absolutely apply for all aspects of life, not only in the marriage and family.

I hope this short article will give you a new inspiration and a new hope for a better marriage life. Get rid off the family stress by the help of God, and turn it into happiness.

May God bless you. Amen

Coping With Anger by Using Inner Powers of Your Faculties!

By Albertus Sargent

Anger is like a bad sore that if left unattended can quickly spread and develop into something far worst which could be fatal not only to the person who gets angry but also to surrounding people.

There are various reasons why many people are full of anger or having anger disorders. These include bad childhood experiences, the death of a loved one, jealousy, selfishness, rejection by a partner, and of course there are those who just seemed to be naturally angry for everything and anything.

Coping with anger whether you are directly affected by it or just continually in the surroundings of it is a very hard thing to do and can cause terrible illnesses which begins with stress.

In coping with anger, it is most imperative that the root source of the anger is identified and acknowledged. This is the first step which is the most important to be acknowledged by the person or persons with the anger problems or disorders. Problems no matter what they are cannot be dealt effectively until the root source of the problem is known.

Before stepping into action to cope with your anger, learn first your anger problem symptoms.

Once the root source is known then the process of addressing the problem of coping with anger can begin. First and foremost the root of all anger comes from bad feelings. It is absolutely impossible to feel good and bad at the same time, therefore one has to learn to develop good feelings which instantly cancel bad feelings since both cannot exist at the same time.

To effectively create good feelings, one must learn to control oneself which are the faculties. These faculties are the will, imagination, love intuition, and the force of the universe which is in all human beings. Effective and conscious use of these faculties is a sure way of not just coping with anger issues, but eradicating it. This is done by controlling of the will to dispel any bad thoughts that comes into the mind and this must be done instantly once such thoughts appear, dispersing them at will.

Defeat Anger With the Power of Ra

In coping with anger, the imagination should be used constantly to visualize doing good as well as feeling good. The imagination is what that is real to the universe not your biological body. Therefore whatever you imagine can be made manifest into reality, the imagination is truly powerful and should not be underestimated. The intuition is the pure knowingness, the ability to know both past present and future. Following the intuition when in doubt is very awesome, the many times that people have said “if only I had followed my mind”, this mind is intuition.

In coping with anger, the natural force of the universe and cosmos within the biological body is truly awesome. In ancient Egypt it is known as Herukuti who is son of Ra. Ra represents the force of the infinite universe and when it is manifested within human beings it is known as Herukuti. It is this Herukuti force that is absolutely essential in not only coping with anger but totally dispelling it by simply forcing yourself to reject bad feelings. These might seemed like far fetched methods to some, but these practices on a daily basis will yield results that will amaze you, and costs you nothing but a conscious mind of all your faculties. After all they were used by the great Pharaohs of Egypt who gave knowledge to the world. And now you can transform it into your anger coping skills.
