Help me know when to be stillI get up every morning counting my blessings, praying for others, and expressing gratitude for all the wonderful things around me.

This morning I started to think about how hot and dry it is, so I started to pray for rain. I looked at the weather forecast and saw that there was no predicted and I began thinking we must have rain or the ponds will dry up, the grass will dry, and my prayer continued for rain. Then I realized that it is ok to pray for rain, but I also needed to be thankful that we have a earth that is so perfectly made that it can sustain a drought, and that I must believe in this awesome energy around me and trust a higher power without questioning.

“Faith isn’t the ability to believe long and far into the misty future. It’s simply taking God at His Word and taking the next step.”
In times of trials and uncertainty believe that there is a higher plan, and I am so blessed to be part of this higher plan. Today I am still praying for the rain, but I am also having faith that the rain will come when the rain should come.

God is willing to give us more peace than we are willing to accept. Sometimes we just need to sit quietly and have faith that he knows how and when to provide for us.

Remember to count your blessings, pray for others and be thankful that we can Live, Laugh, and Love Always.
