Some Prescriptions for Your Problems

Fall is coming to a close and I'm starting to feel it. For the past several days I've had this really irritating cold. Its just one of those things you have to deal with in life. Everyone gets it eventually. Maybe a sore throat or a stuffy nose or a head that feels like its about to explode! No matter who you are you're going to have to deal with it eventually, and if you're like me you get colds a lot more often than you'd like.
Cayenne: Those that have tried it
know its power
   Luckily, with all the colds and flu bugs there are also things you can take to help get through the sickness faster and easier. For me its usually Cayenne capsules, Echinacea and Goldenseal capsules, and a pretty heavy dosage of vitamin C tablets. For normal people its probably NyQuil and cough drops.

   The same idea applies in our day to day lives. When you're going through a difficult time there are some simple things you can do to get through it faster and easier. From what I've seen in my life the simplest solution is often the one most forgotten. That is turning to The Lord and asking for helping and guidance through prayer and reading the scriptures. There are so many answers and solutions to problems we face that can be found in the scriptures. Most important though is the feeling of peace and warmth that can be felt as we seek The Lord out for guidance.
Scriptures: Those that have read them
feel its power

   I know that as we diligently seek for answers to our problems, just as we would with getting over a cold or the flu, then we will get those answers and make it through our difficulties. In the end its better to do something than nothing. I leave this simple yet powerful solution to life's problems in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
