#1

Peter Sat Down

“Peter sat down to rest; he was out of breath and trembling with fright, and he had not the least idea which way to go next.”

The quote resonates with those times in my life when I feel helpless and anxious while at a crossroads, unsure of the next step to take.

The quote serves as a reminder that feeling uncertain in life’s crossroads is normal and that it’s crucial to recognize that taking a moment to rest during uncertainty is as vital as pushing forward.
