Guidance – Day 4
December 07, 2017
A friend has a cat that likes to drag chipmunks into the house to play. I called my friend one day when he was in the midst of a frenzy. “The cat brought another chipmunk in. He brings it in, drops it in my office. The chipmunk freaks out, starts running up my leg, realizes what he’s done, then everyone goes berserk. Now one of them—I think it was the cat—just crashed into the window and broke it.”
Sometimes we all panic, but panic doesn’t help. Guidance does.
Inventory Focus: Are you panicking because of some problem in your life? Does the problem seem unsolvable? Don’t panic. If you are, take a deep breath. If you don’t know what to do next, it’s because you haven’t been shown—yet.
