We know the truth is that the last time we were faced with a difficult situation, where the odds seemed stacked against us and the problem insurmountable, that got through it, perhaps a little battered and bruised, but we survived to tell the tale. You might think that after seeing that achievement, and how we ended up facing our fear and defeating it, we would be prepared for anything.
But no...well not me anyway. And if your anything like me, you'll know that as we face these incredibly difficult times, every single ounce of our beings feels overwhelmed, strung out, and tempted to panic. Even with our good track record, we struggle to draw logical conclusions. Instead, our present trouble tends to swamp those other more realistic perspectives.
But now, more than ever, we must cultivate the art of remembering. Remembering that past victory is critical to helping us trust in the present and in the future.
