Don't be anxious, be spiritually expectant

With all our "expert" planning for our own welfare, we often overlook our basic need: to yield to God's goodness and power.

When I was a student looking for my first apartment in an unfamiliar city, I felt desperate because I had a limited budget and no car. I needed to locate reasonably priced housing that was within walking distance of campus, church, and shopping. My search began with prayer. I don't mean that I put in a request with God for an apartment. What I did do was pray to realize more of my completeness as a child of God, a child who includes the spiritual qualities associated with home.

I began by cherishing what I wanted to see expressed in my home—love, beauty, peace, order, joy. There was no need to fill out a request form or write out a list of preferences to submit to God for action. I knew that man as God's spiritual offspring already has all good.
