I believe we all have great ideas; the problem however is… we tend to overthink things to the point that we don’t do anything, or take so long that the moment has passed before we strike.
Which naturally leads onto, how can we stop doing this?

Do you know how an oyster makes a pearl? When a grain of sand gets into it shell and irritates it, the oyster wraps the sand in layers of beauty until a pearl is formed.

God is at work in what you’re going through today — for your good and His glory. All you need to do is trust him.
Enjoy your week.
All worries fall into two categories, stuff you can do something about and stuff you can’t. We all spend too much time and waste too much energy attempting to change what we cannot change. It is a major cause of stress and frustration.
If there is somethings you can do, do out a list and get to work. If there is nothing you can do, forget about it and move on, and i good way to doing that is just get busy. Get involving in doing something that take all your attention.
