I remember all too many times how I would despair over the endless work to do without enough time to do it. If the business wasn’t busy, I’d be busy trying to find business. If we were busy, I’d wonder how we’d get it all done in a way that would thrill our customers. Then, there were all of the items that needed attention around the house not to mention the quality time I knew I should be having with my family. Not inspiring thoughts. No songs being written here.
When I would finally hit an emotional low, I’d realize just how much time I wasn’t spending focusing on what is good and right. I’d be embarrassed to pray because it had been so long since I uttered a word of praise for the only One who is praiseworthy. The only hope I had was to change me. It was up to me to think differently and seek the LORD.
As an earthly father, I love to give my children good things. Our heavenly Father is far more loving and gracious than any man on earth. You and I can choose to believe He is good and be the people He has called us to be. It’s our choice. Be inspired.
Psalm 42:11 Why am I discouraged?
Why is my heart so sad?
I will put my hope in God!
I will praise him again—
my Savior and my God!
