So often nowadays, it seems like stress is driving people up the wall. They struggle with trying to juggle their crazy, busy lives with their job, family and hobbies and friends.
I think it’s time to slow down a little and relax. Stop trying to save the world single handedly, you can’t. People have been trying for years and it hasn’t worked.
Take a deep breath, everything is going to be ok. God’s got this. He’s been saving the world for six thousand years, he can handle it.
*disclaimer! This is probably not the wisest thing in the world, but it does put things in perspective*
Try to imagine what it would be like to be blind. Then open your eyes and see how green the grass is, and how alive water looks. If you can’t see any trees or water, chances are you’re in town, and you need to take a drive into the country. Take some time and think about how good God is, and I think you’ll see that it really is going to be ok. Make some goals, places you want to be in a few years, and keep the big picture in mind while you work toward them.
Life is a vapor, so it’s best to live in a way you won’t ever regret while you’re here. Enjoy life, work hard, love the Lord and your family, make good memories, and laugh a lot. It really is ok. And if and when life hits you out of nowhere, you’ll have those memories, and fewer regrets, and can look forward to an eternity in heaven with no more tears and no more pain, just everlasting joy and peace.
It’s Going to be Ok.
