Stuck In a Moment

IMG_3086
Things happen sometimes…and not always good things.  School things, work things, home things, health things…this list could go on until we were both really down.  🙂  And sometimes your mind can just get stuck in a loop, playing that mistake or that problem over and over again until it’s almost bigger than it is in reality.  For those of us who enjoy their imaginations, it can be a particularly troublesome aspect.  How to get out of the imagining, the thinking too hard, and into action steps to try to make the problem better.  Two things have been helping me lately…. this verse: “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.  I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”  (Matthew 11:28,29b)

And this song:  “Stuck in a Moment”  c 2000 U2  (excerpts)

“You’ve got to get yourself together; you got stuck in that moment

And you can’t get out of it…

And if the night runs over, and if the day won’t last

And if your way should falter along the stony pass,

It’s just a moment, this time will pass.”

It will pass, and God is my rest.  That’s what I need to know.  Be encouraged in whatever you’re facing today and keep walking.  Slainte, Lisa

  1. Yes, God does promise to give us rest from all of life’s problems when we TRUST in Him and walk out in FAITH! However, taking action does free us from being “stuck in the moment,” and helps us to walk out with faith! May God bless you today!
