These are tough times. I can’t think of a soul in my life who doesn’t feel “it” and know what I mean. While perhaps there are always “big” issues to be dealt with, these times seem to provide MANY and all at once. Coping, maintaining a positive attitude, knowing what to do, knowing where to turn . . . is not always simple. What’s the answer? For me, it’s to try to stay in step with the Lord. He is with me in the present. If I turn back, I am likely to stumble, and racing ahead isn’t any better, really. Rushing through things is seldom the most effective approach and often results in a failed effort followed by a “do-over.” There is an answer though:
“I keep my eyes always on the LORD. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.” Psalm 16:8 NIV
Prayers, Sis! 🙂
OH, thanks Jeanne! So appreciated. Focusing on Him and not on “achieving” and “doing” is a good thing. It’s not always easy, is it? For me, being a caregiver to a person who is always angry and resentful and is at thing moment sitting next to me calling me names . . . but this sort of thing happens to all of us. Interesting to note she is sitting at my left and Jesus as this quote suggests is at my right hand. It is all about the focus! Blessings, sister!
