Getting back to the “old fashioned” way of doing things from time to time can help us slow down in the midst of our busy lives.
And remember you aren’t alone. All of us who have a creative bent have had the day where content didn’t flow, the routine fell apart, and technology didn’t serve us the way it should. It’s okay. Don’t beat yourself up. Tomorrow is another day. Don’t let today’s struggles defeat tomorrow before it even comes.
Our desire to see the good in even the most difficult situations guards us from despair. We just need to watch how we express that desire in the midst of someone else’s pain.
No matter the terror you face in the night, whether it comes from PTSD or worry or a thousand things you need to get done, I promise you that God is enough and if He chooses to use a spouse or a best friend or some random person on the street to encourage you, give Him the glory first. He is worth it. I promise.
