Micah 6:8(NASB) "He has told you, O man, what is good; And what does the Lord require of you But to do justice, to love kindness, And to walk humbly with your God?"I had to step back, take a moment and regroup, I had lost my focus! When the adrenalin started pumping, I let my emotions take over rather than my brain and I became confused at the direction I needed to go. Today's verse speaks to us about what the Lord requires of us, the list seems pretty simple at first but due to the struggles of life, we can find them hard to achieve. Maybe it's time to step back and re-read today's verse. Take it slow and think about each step that God is speaking to us about. What does it mean to "do justice", "to love kindness"and "to walk humbly with our God"?! Stepping back from the chaos unfolding gave me an opportunity to refocus my attention to where it needed to be, an opportunity to start again and move in the right direction. If you find yourself running around with out a clear purpose, it's time to step back, take a moment, pray and seek God's direction. Then we can start again with what HE requires from us!! peace, tom
