When faced with life's challenges,
it is Important to Remember
that although Daniel was saved from the lions,
he was not saved from the Lion's Den.

Chasing Two Rabbits

“Any task in life is easier if we approach it with the one at a time attitude. ... 
To cite a whimsical saying; 'If you chase two rabbits, both of them will escape.' 
No one is adequate to do everything all at once. We have to select what is important, what is possible, and begin where we are, with what we have. And if we begin and if we keep going the weight, the worry, the doubt, the depression will begin to lift .... 
We can't do everything always, but we can do something now, 
and doing something will help to lift the weight and lessen the worry, 
'The beginning,' said Plato, 'is the most important part.”
― Richard L. Evans

I am so guilty of this one.  I try and chase way too many rabbits and they all escape!  Then I get frustrated because I think I should be able to get everything accomplished.  There is a part of me that really thinks I should be able to do every good thing.  The Lord gave each of us different talents and different callings.  He never planned for us to succeed all by ourselves.  He planned that we could succeed with the help of each other.
I may never understand why I can't do everything that my heart and my head tell me to do, but I am so grateful that He knows my limitations and that He will help me through it all.  So, I will begin now to change.  I will begin now to keep all the negative out of my life.  I will start with small and simple things and move forward.  One breath, one moment, one tiny step at a time.  And that will be exactly enough.
