Pride makes us strive to meet all the demands of others. We want to show that we can “do it all” but in the end all we’re doing is frantically sprinting through the day.
When circumstances are overwhelming you have a choice. You can focus on your problems, or on God. When you focus on God you shift the burden from your shoulders to His, making room for the peace only He can provide.
The enemy of our souls wants us to live in a noisy state of distraction from things that give us meaning and purpose.
