In storms of crisis, Joe was a haven of calm. When projects went wrong . . . when upper management was out of reach . . . Joe held the course.  A team member asked Joe his secret.

He said: "In the Army, I served in a Cavalry Regiment.  And we had a saying in the Cav, 'When all else fails, execute the last order you get.' "

This is Howard Butt, Jr., of Laity Lodge.  Have you ever had a day go haywire?  Customers revolt . . . competitors up to tricks . . . colleagues at cross-purposes?  Be assured:  God is close by.  Let others panic and scramble. Offer up a quick prayer.  Your job is to do the best you can with the direction you have . . . in the high calling of our daily work.

You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised. (Heb. 10:36)

When we're consumed with doubt, it's easy to panic. The best way to remain calm is to focus on the true constant in our lives: the love of God. When He is really at the center of what we do, people can't help but notice.
