Sometimes, I have extreme difficulty taking off my little tunnel-vision-goggles and stopping to just take a look around at the big picture. It is so easy to get caught up in everyday crazy that we don't really look around at what is passing us by, or what is happening just outside our line of sight. We think we can control EVERYTHING and when we can't we get so angry and disillusioned with life. I personally have to override my crazy once in awhile (easier said than done) and stop and smell the proverbial roses.
It helps me as a Christian to know that there is always one constant in life, one thing I can put my finger on and say, "yeah, that's real", something, or more accurately Someone, who is a constant, who is always there and always cares and is the absolute truth of life. It's like spinning around and around as a kid and if you don't have something to keep focus on you get dizzy and out of control. But with God as the one thing to stare at and focus on, sure everything else is still crazy and spinning like mad, but he's there, keeping everything in perspective and keeping you from totally losing control. That's one of the reasons that I love this verse from Psalms 46:10, it tells me, "Hey! stop what you're doing and for Pete's sake settle down! I've got this"
If I just keep doing what I know is good and right and I just Trust in God the rest of the time it's gonna be fine.... So just settle down.
