I’m feeling really stressed this morning.
I woke up at 5:30 worried about the status of my clients websites. It seems sites are getting attacked from different levels due to older stuff I have on the site that has malware.
I’m not really sure what to do, though. I’ve reached out to Sucuri and to my host support and am waiting on replies.
I got an email last night from Kurt saying he feels like they are wasting time and money because their site has been hacked and currently shows a Phishing scam on the home page.
I signed a new deal yesterday as well with my neighbor Grant. I’m worried about this too since he is in my ward and it appears he has expectations that may be a bit unrealistic. I went through the entire discovery process with him but questions came up before signing that seemed like he wanted a guarantee. He’s been burned before so I understand, but it just feels like there’s added pressure.
I feel like the systems I’m getting in place are getting better, but ultimately I still have holes where I need contractors to help me fulfill projects.
I’m willing to do whatever God wants me to do.
I want to be honest in my dealings with my fellow man.
I want to run an effective and efficient business.
But, today, I’m feeling pretty stressed and incapable of solving all the problems that are before me.
I’ve made a list of things I need to do today with Wunderlist, but the list seems ongoing and I feel I’m always leaving things out that I can’t deal with.
I don’t know what to do.
As I write this, I continue to have things come to mind that I need to do. And, unfortunately, I’m only one person…
My work with my project manager has been going ok, but I realize he doesn’t know too much about any of this stuff – it’s all training for him. I can’t really turn this stuff over to him and let him run with it.
What have the prophets said recently about this?
I found these answers:
Comforting are the words of the psalm: “The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?” [Psalm 27:1]. As we make Christ the center of our lives, our fears will be replaced by the courage of our convictions.
Life is perfect for none of us, and at times the challenges and difficulties we face may become overwhelming, causing our light to dim. However, with help from our Heavenly Father, coupled with support from others, we can regain that light which will illuminate our own path once again and provide the light others may need.
I like this too:
The most valuable inspiration will be for you to know what God would have you do…Whatever it is, do it. When you demonstrate your willingness to obey, the Spirit will send you more impressions of what God would have you do for Him.
As you obey, the impressions from the Spirit will come more frequently, becoming closer and closer to constant companionship. Your power to choose the right will increase.
And I liked this too:
It is important to recognize that God’s ultimate purpose is our progress. His desire is that we continue “from grace to grace, until [we receive] a fulness” [D&C 93:13] of all He can give.
Faith never demands an answer to every question but seeks the assurance and courage to move forward, sometimes acknowledging, “I don’t know everything, but I do know enough to continue on the path of discipleship.”
I’m sure there are more answers I can find, but for now this will suffice.
I hope that I can really search for answers today and can chip away at all the tasks on my list.
I’m grateful for this study and for my willingness to admit that “I am nothing; as to my own strength, I am weak. But I will not boast in my own strength, instead I will boast in my God. For with his strength, I can do all things.” (paraphrased Alma 26:11-12)
Here’s to a good day.
