“Readjust your gaze”
Earthquakes, land slides, hurricanes, storms, wars, genocides, plane crash, road accidents, poverty, sickness, pain, unemployment, insanity, betrayal, sufferings, imprisonment, helplessness, death, hatred… Has plagued man since as long as we can think of and earlier than our memory has in record.

Readjust your gaze, shift your focus. Everything isn’t worth your attention. The prevalence of tumult isn’t for you to have something to talk about or go about living in worries and fears.

Stay in the Word; Stay lifted, Stay refocused Zero fears!
Matthew 11:28 “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest”.
Job 22:29 “When men are cast down, then thou shalt say, There is lifting up; …”
