“Allow yourself moments of happiness.”
This is a quote I read this morning from the book, After You by JoJo Moyes . It stuck in my mind because the past few weeks especially have been tough for me emotionally. If you’ve been on social media or looked at the news, you know that it seems like the entire world has been going through a lot right now.
I pray for guidance, strength, and wisdom for myself and the nation. It is heartbreaking to witness, read, and listen to all of the recent events. We have to do something but, we cannot act on impulse or rely on our own reasoning. God is still in control no matter how grim things look. It’s easy to be consumed with fear and anxiety but, it will only do more harm than good. I refuse to live in fear and I will not.
I am taking a break from social media for a while because it has taken a toil on me. I will use my energies to listen to what God puts on my heart to do next to help. We all have a voice and a purpose. Don’t let scrolling through Instagram and Facebook, distract you from what you should be concentrating on. Online arguments and tension will NOT fix anything. Let the fear go and stay focused.
