Peace amidst the craziness

Today's been one of those days that has been productive, but not in the way I was hoping for -- ie. with my coursework. And thus I found myself a tad fustrated this evening, when I really wasn't getting anywhere with my Matlab coursework so I decided to call it a night and watch a film to unwind.

Sitting on the sofa though, it just struck me how I'd been judging the day's success purely on how much academic work I had done, rather than keeping my focus on God and remembering that he knew what this day would hold long before I found it out for myself!

As soon as this realisation hit me, God's peace just swept over me.

Praise God that in the midst of this day, he has remained faithful to my prayers, has shown himself to be sovreign over my every-day and longer-term details, and that he has guided me through everything.

May we learn that when our focus is kept steadfastly on God, nothing can phase us, and that everything he leads us into is possible by his strength and patience. Make the day his, and he gives you the day back to you with more blessings than you can shake a stick at. Peace can indeed rule amidst the chaos of our everyday lives :)



if computers are idiot-proof, why can't I make them work...
