In reading a totally unrelated article, I just ran across this quote. For those of us who sometimes feel overwhelmed I thought it is worth thinking about today.
"Henry Morton Stanley (of Stanley and Livingston fame) was quoted as saying about his African exploration: “I did not see the whole. I only saw this rock ahead of me; I only saw this poisonous snake which I had to kill in order to take the next step. I only saw the problem directly in front of me. If I had seen the whole thing, I would have been too overwhelmed to have attempted this.”
It's not rocks or poisonous snakes (I hope) that we're dealing with, but it is a BIG challenge. We do have to see the whole, but deal with small pieces at a time.
Blessings on you all.
