Good Morning, Dear Soul,
My hope is that you woke this morning with your heart carefree and light. Some of us are just naturally optimistic and happy, looking on the bright side. But many, myself included, must work at being centered and calm. Raised in a chaotic family, my natural tendency is anxious anticipation of the next catastrophe. However, with age and maturity, I have learned the best way to start my day is to follow Jesus’ example. I go to the family room with coffee in hand, center myself in the quiet, and study and pray. I emerge a much nicer person.
There is an old hymn lyric that asks, “O soul are you weary and troubled? No light in the darkness you see? There’s light for a look at the Savior, and life more abundant and freer. Turn your eyes upon Jesus.”
Friend, I urge you to start each morning with your eyes fixed upon Jesus. Find true peace in your hectic life. And Jesus is the way.
Love ya, Linda
