Plug In to Reality

Faced with a problem of health or behavior resisting solution, I often find myself reasoning, "What I need is a better understanding of God. How much better I don't know. How long it will take to get it I don't know. What I know is that there are plenty of things I can do right now to bring the needed enlightenment."

Then I jot some of these things down. Recently when I did this, there were six. Considering a certain spiritual fact for example, God's love for man—I can wire a number of different circuits between it and my thinking. Here they are. I can (1) ponder the evidence for its existence (2) affirm its existence (3) analyze its characteristics (4) give thanks for it (5) praise God for it (6) resolve to make my behavior conform to it.
