If you could get a gold medal for worrying, I would be on the top of the podium. At this point in my life, I feel like a professional at it. I am a planner at heart. I like to know well in advance when things are happening. I have learned many things this past year, but the most important thing I have learned is there is Peace in Christ.
When anxiety takes over I find myself cleaving to prayer. Prayer has been my anchor in a turbulent world. Along with prayer has come more faith and trust in my Savior Jesus Christ. He knows me and He loves me. Along with many of you I have struggled to learn and know how He speaks to me. I have had a deep desire to Hear Him. I want His guidance in my life. I haven't had any miraculous experiences, but I have learned that it is the little things. He is there and He is guiding me. Asking in prayer to Hear Him really does work. I have tested it over and over again. There have been moments where I have been frustrated and prayed for help on something that felt silly. And guess what...He heard me and helped me. It is during those small moments that I have felt without a doubt that I am a daughter of God and He LOVES me.
One of my favorite songs is, "There is Peace in Christ." It says, "He gives us hope when all hope is gone. He gives us strength when we can't go on. He gives us shelter in the storms of life. When there's no peace on earth, there is peace in Christ."
During life's storms I cleave unto prayer and the peace I feel through my faith in my Savior Jesus Christ.
