challenge day 8: advice

The best advice you've ever received.

i never really thought about this question until i had to answer it. i suppose the answer would have to be that when you're starting to feel overwhelmed by the weight of the world, just go to sleep! i know that's super lame but it's true. this is the passage that i go to whenever i am weighed down by the weight of the world:

I have been deprived of peace; 
   I have forgotten what prosperity is. 
So I say, “My splendor is gone 
   and all that I had hoped from the LORD.”
I remember my affliction and my wandering, 
   the bitterness and the gall. 
I well remember them, 
   and my soul is downcast within me. 
Yet this I call to mind 
   and therefore I have hope:
Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, 
   for his compassions never fail
They are new every morning; 
   great is your faithfulness. 
I say to myself, “The LORD is my portion; 
   therefore I will wait for him.”
The LORD is good to those whose hope is in him, 
   to the one who seeks him; 
it is good to wait quietly 
   for the salvation of the LORD. 

love, me
