Something to Think About

Of all God's creatures, man is the one made a little lower than the angels and placed above other species. Yet man seems least able to maintain balance in his life. We could take a lesson from these sea creatures who take life one day, one hour - or even one meal - at a time. They don't regret the past or worry about the future; they just move with the current instead of against it. Life is going swimmingly for them. Sometimes we make life too complicated. We take on too many responsibilities and then get overwhelmed. We use our free time to schedule even more activities, turning play into work. No wonder we're stressed out. So today take time to simplify your life. Breathe in, breathe out. Focus on one thing at a time. Go with the flow. Immerse yourself in the ocean of God's love and provision. Rejoice that your sins are in the depths of the sea and that you are safe in God's lifeboat. As surely as the tides ebb and flow, God will steer you safely through the wind and waves into that heavenly harbor.
