1. I Prayed
( 1 John 5:14 ) “This is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us”.
I prayed morning, noon, and night, breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
I didn’t pray for God to take my burdens away. I prayed for strength to endure them.
I prayed for God to reveal whatever it was that He wanted me to gain from all my suffering.
I knew He would take care of me. I was sure of this. The more I prayed, the less I worried.
2. I Learned to be Grateful
One of the things that happened during this dark season of my life is that I had been in a car accident. The car was totaled, but I walked away without a scratch on me.
All I could think about was how much of an inconvenience this accident was. The timing was horrible. I had just started a new job the week prior so missing a day of work was not an option.
But then I was reminded that there are a lot of people who don’t walk away from car accidents. I was blessed. Not cursed!
