"When Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus. But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me."
"Not by measuring the waves can you prevail; not by gauging the wind will you grow strong; to scan the danger may be to fall before it; to pause at the difficulties, is to have them break above your head. Lift up your eyes unto the hills, and go forward--there is no other way."

I need to learn to put my “assessing” tools aside. I spend way too much time, measuring, calculating, figuring and making notes. No wonder I have trouble surmounting obstacles; I never really tackle them.
Time to pour another cup of coffee and take on the day!
