What Can I Do?

Do you ever wonder if anything you do matters?  Do you sometimes feel small and insignificant?  I do.   I feel like there's so much I need to do and not enough time in my day in which to do it.  I tell myself I need to do this or that and, unless I write those things down, they're gone.  Generally my reminders to myself elude me like steam from a kettle.  One minute they're there and the next they're not.  So I sometimes (a lot) feel like I'm just spinning my wheels trying to keep myself on track for everything I think is important.

Actually, though, what I may think important, isn't always that crucial.   There is something, though, that I can remember to do which is important.  I'm just one small person in a great big world . . . but I CAN do something.  I can pray.  When a situation or a person pops into my head, I can pray for them.  When I wake up in the middle of the night, I can pray.  When I'm cruising through my Facebook news feed and I see something, I can pray.  I can do this even though I may not personally know the person/s for whom I pray.

I have to wait until I get to Heaven before I no longer feel frustrated, forgetful and a failure.  When my wheels are spinning and I'm feeling at a loss because I can't keep track of all those "important" things that "need" to be done, I remind myself what's important . . . and I pray.  Some day I won't have to deal with this human condition, but, for now, I'll make do and carry on.

I love this. Such a good reminder. I actually started using the 'keep calm and carry on' phrase as a sort-of mantra when I find myself in ultra worry mode.
