I was working this morning and somehow lost the job I was typing on. Usually it’s seen in my pool but it disappeared. First I panicked, thinking it had gone to the client without being completed. With no supervisors on to remedy the problem, I decided to take a chance, log out and log back in to see if I could get it back. Sweating bullets, I did just that and after the reset, there was my lost job. I could have just continued on and most likely the job would have come to someone else to type but I didn’t know for sure whether or not it had gone to the client and I would have been concerned the rest of the day! I would have been torn up over something I could do absolutely nothing about.
We spend so much time worrying and wondering if things are going to turn out okay and what’s going to happen if it doesn’t. Very often the things we can do nothing about are what keeps us stuck! I was on my way there and decided to take a chance and hit a reset button.
That’s a good idea today. Are you stressed, worried and/or fearful about something you have very little control over? Hit the reset button. Close your eyes and breathe. Pray. Pick up your Bible and ask God to point you to something in His Word that will help you take a minute to start all over. Hopefully before we’re all wound up in a tizz over something we can do nothing about, we’ll remember to do that.
Matthew 11:28: Come to me all who are weary and heavy-laden and I will give you rest.”
