Feeling like Sept 12

I was talking with a friend today and of course the subject of the current national financial stress came up.  I don’t even know what to say about it.  I can’t even say I understand it all.  Banks being bought, bailout, bankruptcy, housing crisis, etc etc etc.  It’s a tough place we’re in.

Then it hit me.  Right now it’s kind of like how I felt on Sept 12.  On that day (figuratively) I didn’t fully understand all the implications of what happened the day before.  I didn’t even know if it was over yet. I knew everything changed. But in all practicality what was I supposed to do?

I think we have to do now what we did on Sept 12: keep going.

Today is different than yesterday.
Today I’m still a neighbor.
Today I’m still a husband.
Today I’m still scared.
Today I still look for clients for my business.
Today I still look for full-time employment in the right situation.
Today I still move forward trusting that God will still provide and meet our needs.
Today I take another step forward.

Tomorrow will be different than today.
Tomorrow I’ll still be a neighbor.
Tomorrow I’ll still be a husband.
Tomorrow I’ll probably still be a scared.
Tomorrow I will look for clients for my business.
Tomorrow I will look for full-time employment in the right situation.
Tomorrow I will move forward trusting that God will still provide and meet our needs.
Tomorrow I will take another step forward.

  • This is a great post because I can relate, too. When tragedy/crisis happens, life continues and we need to move forward. Sometimes it’s tough but it gets easier with each step.
