Busy Mind, Heavy Heart

HOW do we fix today?

The mind a flurry of yesterday. How could we have done those things? Guilt or shame hangs its clamouring claws over us. We wonder what to do. Not a moment’s rest upstairs. Crawling out of the space of fear without denying it is tough, but it’s possible.

It’s a fight. Fear or faith, or if you prefer, fear or courage. That’s the simple choice, for simple things are best during these times. Fear has the same skill as faith does. It too divides and separates. But it works with confusion and fiction. Fear would take our lives if only we’d let it.

Do what only you can. Surrender all to God. He is the Alleviator. He forgives. So should you.

Today can be better.
