When Life’s A Blur

Sometimes life gets going a little too fast for me. Ever have that problem?

You just sit down to dinner…and someone spills milk.
Or the bathroom was just cleaned…then someone throws up.

Perhaps you think you are serving someone in the capacity they are requesting,
only to find out that they didn’t agree with your method of service.

Life gets blurry when we’re in too much of a hurry.

You wake up late and rush the kids off to school,
only to have someone call home due to a forgotten lunch.
Or homework.

Maybe, just maybe, you had good intentions on following through with an issue,
but your plate has been so full…
that the situation has worsened
before you’ve had the chance to work at it.

Could it be that you’ve experienced circumstances that are causing your thoughts to run together?

An unexpected illness.  A job loss. Car trouble.

Yep, I’m guessing you’ve been there too.  As the Allstate commercial asks,

“Life comes at you fast. Are you in good hands?”

I’ve been there. Many times. In fact, just this week. 🙂  Ok… today.

But there is one place I can recommend that will shift your perspective properly.

I stopped on a drive a couple weeks ago to take this photo.  The fog had me thinking about the way to see through it.

Hope you’re turning to Him today. In spite of spilled milk, car trouble, and all that other hurry, blurry stuff, His Word is true.  We can turn to it for clarity.

Got a verse you’d like to share with us that brings clarity for you?  We’d love to read it in the comments below. Hope your day is 20/20. 😉

    I wish there was a like button and a share button for this posting today! How profound your thoughts! Thanks for the encouragement to focus on God alone!

    1. You are so sweet! There is a button, but it’s a bit hidden at the very bottom of the post. I was using a different share method, but received a few complaints that it was in the way. He alone is the only way I’ve found to function joyfully. 🙂 Blessings to you today!
