It was in those moments that I would remember just do the next thing.
I would whisper a prayer for help. I'd stop and seek out the beauty that always surrounds me yet I fail to see sometimes. And then, I'd work on doing the next thing.
And I'd be changed in the process. Thank goodness!
It's funny because I don't remember the story around do the next thing. I just remember the words, do the next thing. So I stopped and looked it up.
The poem says, "Do it immediately, do it with prayer, do it reliantly, casting all care. Do it with reverence, tracing His hand who placed it before thee with earnest command. Stayed on omnipotence, safe 'neath His wing, leave all resultings, do the next thing." That is a wonderfully saving truth. Just do the next thing.
Yes, that's just what I needed.
And today? We're thankful for a new week.
