    Where should I even be looking? What panel is most important? Is that beeping normal?

    Listen, I'll make this quick. The beeping you hear is normal. And if your life is currently a confusing mess, then you're... a human. It's that way for all of us.

    Your major life decisions probably won't look much like this.

    Jesus understood this. This is what He said in Matthew 6:34.

    I may or may not make any "big" choices today. But each day I believe the biggest choice I can make is to live in this moment and to trust Him with all else.

    If you're overwhelmed today, remember His words. You can't take it all on right now. You need to take this one day at a time. You can do this.
