Face It Together

I am learning to thank God for my problems. As soon as my mind gets snagged on a difficulty, I take it to Him with thanksgiving. Then I ask him to show me his way to handle the situation.

The very act of thanking God releases my mind from its negative focus. As I turn my attention to God, the problem fades in significance and loses its power to trip me up. Together we can deal with the situation, either facing it head-on or putting it aside for later consideration. I am learning that things don’t have to happen now.

I am learning to wait because more shall be revealed.

-- Diane N., Belle Plaine, Kansas USA
