I really enjoyed my vacation and one of the best parts of it was that I didn’t watch the news even once in a three week span. Oh, I read an occasional article or news story, but usually I just skimmed the highlights.
Remember that it is when Peter “saw the wind” rather than keeping his eyes fixed on Jesus, that he started to sink when walking on the water (Matthew 14). So, if life has you anxious right now, can I make a suggestion? Turn off the news. Take the time that frees up and spend it with the Lord. Read scripture. Get on your knees. Up your participation in the worship and discipleship opportunities the church is offering, and experience His peace that transcends all understanding.
