turn

a helpful secret

 We all get put into situations that aren’t comfortable for us: conversations that make us squirm, meeting people who are intimidating, tasks that seem impossible given our skill set, expectations to which we never agreed, etc.  There are a myriad of things that can make us uncomfortable & each person is unique with those discomforts.  Despite our individuality, I can propose a solution for these struggles that has universal application:  prayer 🙂

For me, prayer isn’t just the requests I make to God or the quiet time I spend in the morning, although these are most certainly very necessary expressions of prayer.  Here’s my secret:  when I get put into difficult situations or crazy conversations, etc, I take a pause moment in my heart & turn to God.  I listen & watch for some Divine input & without any surprise, God shows up.  Often, I’ll receive some helpful wisdom, sometimes I receive comfort & at other times, I seem to be more settled & secure so that the situation isn’t such a stress.

Prayer can be many things, including the inward turning or opening to God 🙂
