Prayer Made My Day A Success!


This morning I set the alarm early because I knew what was ahead.

And I didn’t know how I would handle it.

A 2-day retreat at work, Beloved Hubby coming home Wednesday, and several people I had to get processed, with more adding on every day.  I was so worried my insides were all knotted up and I was almost shaking.

What to do?  What do I do first?

You got it (you’re getting to know me pretty well, huh?)

That’s right.  Prayer.

So, I knelt beside my bed and poured out my thoughts, feelings, worries, and to-do list to Father in Heaven.  I didn’t know how I was going to get through these next few days.  I haven’t worried this much in a long time.

As I was getting ready for the day, a call came.  I had to run an errand before going to work.  I looked at my watch.  Well, there was time, sort of.  Good thing I got up early.

So I quickly finished getting ready and left to take care of the errand.  Once I completed it I suddenly realized I’d forgotten something very important at home.

You guessed it, a quick stop at home on the way to work.  I’m trying no to think about the additional time all this is taking.  I focus on my driving.

Finally I arrive.  I stop briefly to share with a co-worker how concerned I am.  Then it’s off to my desk to round up my materials, check the schedule, and see about getting something done.

Nothing major in my emails or voice messages that has to be done right away.  Good.  I turn to processing my folks.  There are about a dozen of them!  I don’t know how many I’ll be able to squeeze in today, the rest will have to wait until tomorrow.

Well, I’ll do what I can.  Better start calling them.

I do a little of the preliminary work, then dial the first number.  He answers!  Good.  Hurray and get him scheduled and try to not take too much of his time.  He’s very understanding and it works out well.

But, there’s a glitch with the computer and I can’t finish the process right this moment.  OK, make a note and set him aside to finish after the next one.  The next one also answers right away!  Same process, same glitch, set her aside.

I take time to visit the retreat for an important topic that should help me with my work.  Thus goes my day, calling people between sections of the retreat.  Wait!

I just reached the last one who has to be done today!  How did that happen?  And there is time left to finish most of the preliminary work!  And to get past the glitch in the computer (operator error, of course!).

Now we are going to dinner together and I have completed all of the 8 or 9 who had to be handled today!  And I feel great!

Dinner is good, I’m meeting new people, we have a great team.  And Beloved Hubby is doing well.

This day sure turned out differently than I thought it would.  I expected, though I hoped it wouldn’t, my stomach to be tied in knots this whole week!

But by taking a few moments to talk with God, He helped me through this day in unexpected ways and with marvelous results!  He truly guided my path and showed His great love for me.

All because I asked.

Want To Feel Better?


You don’t even have to feel down.  You don’t HAVE to be wondering what’s wrong in your life.  No need to be worried about the state society and the world are in.

Whether you are on top of the world or not.

You will always feel better when you tune in to the LDS semi-annual, worldwide General Conference!  And it starts in about 2 hours.  But…

In the meantime, or anytime, you can go and watch previous conferences and feel the same uplifting and joyful feelings that you do when you watch it happen live.

This is another great blessing we have available to us from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the Mormons).  It is proof that God, your Heavenly Father, loves you and all His children and does not leave us to wander alone and unsure through life.

In fact, it is quite the opposite.  It is a feast for the soul!  A veritable smorgasbord of hope, joy, peace, comfort, and love that will always leave you a better person that before.  Guaranteed.

God loves His children and has given us so much good in the world.  And today we have more goodness and happiness to surround ourselves with than any other time throughout the history of the world!  Although we live in a tough time in many ways, we also live in the best of times in more ways.

“How?” you may ask.

Come and see.  You can participate at any time.  Try it and see.  🙂
