Antidote to Anguish

Crazy weeks or months have periodically inserted themselves into our experience.  We are invaded by unscheduled chaos.  Strangers destroy our carefully planned schedules.  We find ourselves mired in a swirl of conflicting demands.  Things break, plans are scuttled, schedules wiped out, nothing is working.
When anguish is the defining quality of your life, what do you do?  Thoughts at DTTB.
Times like these have literally made me want to emit the proverbial primal scream…  This week started like that.  So what do you do with a season, however long, like that?

Psalm 119:143 throws out a life line.  Get some time in the Word.  It gives perspective.  It helps you lift your eyes beyond the current anguish.  It reminds you who is in control (while typing this I got a phone call that required this reminder).  It gives you an anchor with which you can ride out the hurricane.

Fight your way into the Word when the world is crashing down around you.  Run there as if your life depends on it.  Fact is.  It does.
