“Drag your thoughts away from your troubles… by the ears, by the heels, or any other way you can manage it.”
This might seem like an odd quote to use on Good Friday but hang with me…
It can be so easy to spend all of our time thinking about what we don’t have, instead of reveling in all of the blessings that we have been gifted with. It can be so easy to manufacture problems and troubles that really aren’t there.
I personally can’t think of a better day of the year to have a broader perspective than on Good Friday. For me this is a day of reflection and appreciation. Wonder and amazement. There isn’t a trouble that I have that holds a candle to what happened on first Good Friday.
So no matter what you believe, find something that grounds you and serves as a reminder of how all our troubles pale in comparison to what truly matters.
