I’ve been praying more now than ever before. Sometimes when we are down, we question our faith. Are you are like me? Do you wonder if God is listening and watching?
So, what can you do? I’m not an authority on this. I’m just sharing my ups and downs as I go along. One idea that seems to be helping me combines prayer and focus. I purchased a composition book and started writing down any prayers that have been answered. Whenever I think of an answered prayer from any time in my life, I write it down.
Recent prayers become more memorable, but looking back I realize that many have actually been answered. Many times they were answered in a different time frame and in an unexpected manner.
I’ve been stressed and praying for peace. It is very cool that unexpected people have called or texted me and helped that along. My community of friends and God friends has been wonderful. As a guy who likes to go off by myself and focus, I have found myself reaching out and finding more support than I expected.
It seems to be helping me. Would that kind of focus help you?
Thank you, God, for Grace, Truth, Love, and Laughter,
(Reminder, this is just a journal of my mistakes, experiences, and thoughts along my journey to having a closer relationship to God. I do not claim to be an authority on the subject. If you want to know The Way, read The Bible.)
P.S. Thank you, especially, for grace.
