But one of the greatest resources we can sometimes forget, is that God is there. And not only is He present but He is interested.... and He invites us to pray specifically for what we need. Sometimes when we pray we can be very general in our requests, but God invites us to get very specific and tell Him exactly what you need. He wants you to pray about everything. If I say to you, “Do you mind if I come by your house sometime?” you may not take me seriously. But if I say, “Can I come over on Saturday morning, I really need your advice.” Then you know what I am asking is sincere. When we offer specific requests, God knows the same!
When things seem out of alignment in your life, know that in God's plan, everything lines up. For instance, say you look up in the sky at night and you see Orion's Belt, that's those three stars that are always in a straight line. Do you know that those three stars are all hundreds of light years apart and that the closer you were to get to them that they are not really as lined up as they appear to be on earth? It's only from the viewpoint of Earth do those three stars seem in a straight light. When it comes to your life right now, sometimes when we are standing too close to things in our life right now, things may not seem to line up. But from God's perspective, He has His eyes on your life and as you trust Him with the stresses of everyday, you can be assured that He is working things out... things become more aligned.
So during this time of crisis and difficult experiences, don't forget God. Pray specifically... and know that He has His hand on you, bringing things into alignment even though you cannot see it happening right now.
