Capsule for the Day

There comes a time in our lives when we sit, and look back and laugh at ourselves. We then realise all our struggles, worries and sleepless nights didn't really matter after all. That there is more to life than the bustlings and hustlings. That life is meant to be lived, and not just spent.

No doubt, it's daunting most times to cope with the pressure of the day. Everyone wants a piece of us, and they want it now. We are constantly on the move to meet every other person's demands, call them whims and caprices. And when we fall short, we are given a label, "not good enough".

However it is not fair on our part to just sit and fold our arms, because we don't want to make mistakes. We have to face life's challenges and face them graciously. The wisdom here is the practice of living in the presence of God; falling back to Him at all times, for the grace for the day.
