Gems of Gratitude, Reflections

Today’s Gem of Gratitude #185

20131215-235350.jpg

Today I am thankful for the ability to pray. Like many of us, I occasionally find myself in need of help, guidance, and, at times, a listening ear. And though I am blessed to have great friends and family members who gladly provide me with that, occasionally there are times when I know that I need help but I have no idea what it is that I really need, just as there are times when I am dealing with something that is very private and it is something that I am not ready to share with my loved ones.

In times like those, I have found that praying was exactly what I needed. I poured my heart out to God, and asked Him for help and guidance, and then I let whatever the concern was that I had go as I made the choice to leave it in God’s hands.

There is something about the sense of peace and comfort that I feel when I pray – any sense of confusion that I have about something or someone usually leaves, I feel as though a burden has been lifted from my shoulders, and I feel my smile return to my face.

Prayer is an aspect of my life that is indispensable, beneficial, and forms an integral part of the foundation of who I am. And I am blessed to know that when times get tough or I simply need further clarity regarding something, that peace of mind and heart and that clarity are only a simple prayer away. Be blessed. #lovebythedrop
