Then I prayed to the God of Heaven . . . Nehemiah 2:4b
I was discouraged this morning, wondering what the day would bring and how I would make it through the day. And beyond today ... I was trying to take on the future now. And then I read this and realized that I am (once again) trying to take life's challenges and solve them on my own.
I know bettter. But it's an ongoing process for me to learn to simply take it Jesus and leave it with Him. I keep picking things back up and walking away with them.
We've been talking a lot about prayer at church and are beginning a study on prayer tomorrow. I'm so glad we are. I need the constant reminders that prayer changes things, that He is always there to listen and respond.
