When really communing with God, I find the future to be very different than the norm. Generally the future brings with it stress, anxiety, worry. Why? I dont know. Maybe the way I was brought up, the fact that I lived the majority of my life being a wild party girl. Whatever the reason, it is so much more invigorating knowing that if I obey God, even if it seems so scary, or unsure, and even sometimes uncomfortable, it will really work out, for HE has a plan for my life. Not just your average run of the mill plan, but an awesome, exciting, abundantly blessed plan. Woo Hoo. THIS gives me peace, joy, and a worry free anxiety free existence that makes me SMILE. Thanks God.

Today is a new day. I look at it like this. If I want to have something different happen, I need to do something different. Ya, pretty self-explanatory you might think. The problem is what to change? Major changes can be very stressful for me. I get so consumed by whether I am listening to God or to my own twisted little brain. I end up in a panic stricken state, and become paralyzed. Ok, so I will start with something basic. Gettting organized and ready for whatever is coming up around the corner. That sounds like a good idea. Plus, it is safe. Cant go wrong there. Ok, off I go one drawer at a time. Woo Hoo!

One thing is for sure. When you are seeking God, and following his gentle guidance, you know only good things are in store for you. I know the old belief of when something bad happens, "It was God's will", ya, I dont know I am not buying it. I dont of course have any answers but here is what I think. As I look at the events in my life, even the "suckiest" stuff ended up having a significant purpose. Analyzing further, when I trace the timeline where I am actively seeking God, the "sucky" experiences seem to unfold in a tremendously positive way, Then looking at the times when I am just floundering around, making decisions based on fear, worry, or what society deems should be the correct path to take. These experiences seem to unfold in a not so great way. So what is the lesson? SEEK GOD. When faced with a decision, a choice, a crossroad, get still, get small, then break through with GOD.

What is prayer? No ceremonies, no need for eloquent language. All you need is a quiet moment where you can talk to God. When you embark on a relationship with someone, you long to spend time with them. That is what God wants. He is there waiting for you. Talk to Him. Tell Him all your confusions, your doubts, your worries. He knows them already but He is waiting for you to bring them to Him, so he can free you from pondering on them any longer. What follows prayer? Peace. Peace like you have never known. Pray. Pray now. Pray often. Pray all day for everything in everything.

Today I have choices. Too many choices it seems, but choices none the less. I can choose to look at my life in a positive light. I am alive, my children are healthy, I have a roof over my head, food on the table. I can choose to praise God through any of the other circumstances in my life that are less than desirable. I will do that today. Today I will Praise God with a loud voice through the storm.
