The need to act

The office was busy enough that I was able to pass off my frustration and restlessness to work-related concerns, even directing some of my energy along those lines. But that's not where my mind was, and I lacked the focus to be truly effective. Got a mailing done, a layout completed, a bill straightened out, and the Order of Worship printed. It was the best I could do.

Sitting by idly when I am concerned is not something I do well. God is teaching others in my life similar lessons, so I'm not surprised to be facing it as well. Even so, I cannot remain inactive long when my heart is troubled, not before I've tried to do whatever I can. It's not in my nature.

If I can but pray, then pray I shall. But I have to know I've tried to do whatever is in my power. I'd be a terrible steward of the gifts He's given otherwise.
