Calling on God

As a university student, I often have challenging days. Sometimes I need to learn how to communicate respectfully with a roommate, or work through academic anxiety, or, in a larger sense, find my niche.

When I’m confronted with these situations, I sometimes feel utterly hopeless and stuck in the dark. Sometimes I’ve reacted fearfully and emotionally. I know it would be helpful to pray and acknowledge God as the source of happiness, but it can feel easy to ignore this urging and instead automatically pick up my cell phone and call my mom to vent. Don’t get me wrong! Moms are amazing at listening to and comforting their kids. But when I dial my mother’s number and simply complain to her, I feel worse than before.
