I got to work this morning to be greeted by an email from a customer who was very upset about an ad I designed for him. He accused me of making it too “high end”. I actually sat down and cried.
My mom sent me this verse:
2 Corinthians 4:17
For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.
These past few weeks have just seemed very depressing for me. I’ve been very stressed from work and have a lot on my mind. I read an article somewhere (I can’t seem to find it now) that said psychologists have determined that the Monday closest to January 24th is the most depressing day of the year, with post-holiday let down and winter blues. I wonder if that’s what’s hitting me right now…
I just need to keep my focus on the things that matter. In light of eternity, do I need to worry about this? God’s not going to put me through something I can’t handle, and I know I’ll look back and see how He’s brought good out of the yucky things. I can definitely see the evidence of that in my life!
