“Sit quietly, breathe deeply, and recall a time when you felt great joy.” Nice! The matchstick suggestion for the week is something I need to do regularly. Clear away all the anxiety and concern life brings and remember who is in control. I usually wake up in a positive frame of mind, that is, until I read the headlines on my morning paper. Then I have to remind myself. Breathe, hand it up to God. Be patient; he’ll take care of it at the proper time and in the most beneficial way for all concerned. I can’t take on God-sized problems and expect to solve them. That doesn’t mean I don’t have some responsibility. I can bring comfort and encouragement to the lives of others. I can pray about the big issues. I can spread the love and hope of Christ wherever I go. And, doing that is what brings me the greatest joy anyway.
