“Surely every man walks in a vain show; surely they make an uproar for nothing; he amasses riches and does not know who will gather them.” (Ps 39:6)
Nothing like a verse from Psalms to remind you that when life seems impossible and totally awful… you might just be melodramatic.
- My car won’t start in the morning. Worst day ever!
- Grocery store doesn’t carry my favorite brand of chips. What is this world coming to?!
- Alarm didn’t go off and I’m running behind. The whole day is ruined!
- I got passed over for that promotion. I’m a total failure and will never succeed.
Humans – making an uproar out of nothing – it’s one of our specialties.
Keep it in perspective. It’s all gonna be okay.
“Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therein to be content.” (Php 4:11)
