Getting back to normal

Lately I've had some things going on that have really changed my daily grind. I can't go into too much detail, but let's say that I have an upcoming year that will test me.  I have been unable to move ahead with a lot of things since I got some news and my life has been at a stand still. Exercise has been difficult, crafting has been a challenge, even the every day things that we do to keep our homes clean and in order have created a brick wall for me.
Today, I think was a turning point. I have been reading a book, Loving God with all Your Mind, and I think I'm finally getting it.  God has a purpose for us and he has given us the tools to get through tough times and to stay focused on Him.  I realize that my mind is where it all starts. My mind is what creates these barriors and walls and I need to get the focus off me and put it back to God. I can start my day off, but He is in control. I have to get priorities in order and let Him lead me to where I should be. That means praying to him, fasting when necessary and seeking Him in all things.
I think the upcoming year will be okay and I'll get through it with the help of God and by doing what He will have me do.
Thank you Lord for being there for me.
