One Positive Thing

I am stressed to the max.  Luckily, I have a short, but much needed vacation coming up, but still, I'm stressed out and my best efforts to relieve that stress are actually leading to more stress.  It's really ridiculous.   In fact, I have been putting off much needed and anticipated treatment for some chronic health issues because I'm afraid the stress will counteract everything and I will just fall over dead.

This morning, I arrived at the office ready to go; ready to face the stuff of the day.  The stuff that makes me wonder why I put make-up on at all because I anxiously rub it off by 10AM.  The stuff that makes me never want to have children, the stuff that keeps me up at night, the stuff that they gloss over in movies and tv shows where the lead character has a "demanding" career yet has time to take 2 hour shopping filled lunch breaks at random, in the middle of the work day. (Dear Teenagers--that is not reality).  I can't remember the last time I took a lunch break. . . ? Regardless, I swooped in, opened my laptop and clicked on one of the many many emails just sitting in my inbox waiting for me to address them, each email filled with it's own complexity. I thought to myself,
 I hope that I experience just one positive thing or that at least one issue gets fully resolved today. Mleh.
I randomly selected an email, just to get the process started.  It was from our CEO to the entire company and it read:

This morning  maybe  there are some who are worried and anxious about personal situations, (finance, family, health, relationships) maybe  its your sales, YTD results, disappointment with speed you are learning a new solution, or your ability to feel good about where you are at with some goals you set, your effort to date, maybe it something where we flat made mistakes in our lives, but the great thing is it doesn't matter if we just:

Philippians 4:6-7 do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Have an Awesome and Blessed Day!!

How's THAT for one positive thing? :)


  1. I am in awe how our Lord is so very gracious, to give us what we need in the very moment we need it! So cool!
