"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened."
Matthew 7:7-8

When I am facing a difficult situation I only have two choices; take care of it or accept it.

As I observe the dilemma, in fellowship with the Lord, I am able to separate myself from it and make that choice.

When there is nothing I can do about it, I am tempted to complain, criticize or blame someone else and then it becomes a diversion. If I do any of those things, my awareness of God’s presence is sidetracked. Next, I begin to lose the energy I need which I only get when I am in communion with Him.

By accepting the problem and maintaining an attitude of gratefulness to the Lord, I am able to witness His  power at work in my life. I thank God for His grace that is always sufficient for me to continually live in fellowship with Him.
