Sometimes people are extremely complicated. And life, that's complicated too. Sometimes I'm convinced the best way to handle humanity would be to quit talking to them for a while. Gosh, I'm so thankful God doesn't do that with us. But, I have to say, I think I've discovered a cure.
I'm not gonna lie. Yesterday, I got some news that was needless to say, not so great. If we're being completely honest it was quite upsetting. So of course this morning, I woke up, immediately thought about it and then proceeded to feel it stomach ache and all [stress can really get to a person!]. But I had a thought through all of that nonsense. I once had a friend break-up with her boyfriend and in response she read through the Gospels and focused on reading about Christ's crucifixion for three hours. 3 entire hours. Wowza. Talk about perspective. Nothing can give you more perspective than reading about Christ loving you so much he died for your sins. So that is exactly what I did. Lettme tell you what, as upset as I still am and as much as the emotions will still arrive I can't get that out of my mind. It is something I've heard for years but something that I so easily forget in moments like these. Nothing seems as important when you're reading about your Savior being stoned for crimes he did not commit, but that you did. Perspective in a nutshell. I'm sure this will be happening consistently this week, and I have to say I'm thankful for it.
So, thanks God for sweet reminders.
