Some years ago I wrote a poem about distractions. At the time I was in the middle of a busy schedule and felt as if I was going to lose my mind. Instead of lashing out at those around me out of frustration or having a breakdown, I put my thoughts to ink and paper. Journaling has proven to be a helpful approach for me during times of stress over the years.
It is amazing how much you can encourage yourself by simply taking time to organize the thoughts and emotions that could easily influence how you deal with life. When you have order in your life things seem to fall into place and God’s voice is clearer. But let’s be honest, order does not come easily for those of us who are constantly on the go.
