Do you ever focus on the problem too long? Maybe I’m the only one? Nah, I didn’t think so.

Focusing on the problem magnifies it. Talking about the problem, worrying over the problem makes it the center of your universe. Maybe you call your friends and share the overwhelming nature of the problem, and they in turn tell their friends. The problem takes on a life of its own.

Stop. No worry, no anxiety, no magnification ever solved a problem.

Relax. Don’t magnify how something doesn’t work. Relax. Look for the solution, but more than that. Look to the One who can solve the problem.

The solution will come more quickly if you are relaxed, and ready for an answer.
