The world is loud. It is so much louder than it used to be. Well, at least it feels that way when you watch the news or spend too much time on social media.

It is so easy to get caught up in all of the madness that is around. From unrest across the world to political tensions to (insert chaotic item here), it is hard to find focus and remain calm.

I would like to share  two thoughts in regards to this:

  1. I can’t control the world, but I can make the next right decision in front of me. Having this sense of agency keeps me focused and reminds me to keep moving forward.
  2. God loves us. There will be bad in the world, but I choose to partner with God and share his love with people. That changes my outlook and keeps my eyes pointed toward him.

This I declare about the Lord: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I trust him. – Psalms‬ ‭91‬:‭2‬ ‭NLT‬‬

I need this reminder often. I choose to do what needs to be done and show God’s love along the way. This helps me find focus through the noise.
