Taking your blinders down and giving thanks

All of us as people of faith probably face the question of getting so worked up, so focused on what’s going wrong in my life. That big project I have to work. Maybe my mother just got a bad diagnosis, etc, etc. And it often feels like we’re wearing blinders that all I can focus on is what I’m worried about, I’m anxious about, what I’m praying about, that I feel like it’s a black hole that’s just sucking me in to a very dark place. I don’t think I’m the only one who’s ever experienced that. And to times like that where we often are looking for a lifeline how do I pull myself out of that dark place?
