Do the next thing.
Do it immediately, do it with prayer.
Do it reliantly, casting all care.
Do it with reverence, tracing His hand,
Who placed it before thee with earnest command.
Stayed on omnipotence, safe ‘neath His wing,
Leave all resultings, do the next thing.
-Old Saxon Legend
When the holidays visit their whirlwind, chaos your uninvited guest, consider.
When the rising mercury of stress strangles your breath, remember.
Someone sustains the universe by His Word. And your job isn’t to manage life but to receive it.
And my open hands and wide eyes might be just what I need to see God today.
