Why do I feel like this?
Am I alone in feeling that my time is constantly squeezed leading to compromise and a feeling of letting someone (possibly everyone) down? Has the world so ensnared me that my priorities are wrong and the things I allow to consume my time have grown too powerful? Is my perspective wrong?
I was wrestling with these thoughts this morning when “ping” went my mobile phone (ironically the conduit by which much of the above sentiment is conveyed) and today’s bible verse appears; Jeremiah 17: 5- 8. Go on, read it. It hit me square between the eyes.
“Blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him”.
I feel like a child whose toy train had come off the tracks and whose father is coming to pick up the train and set me going again.
Next week will be different…
