Let's be sure we know the difference between worrying and praying
An indescribable peace comes over us when we turn to God with no resistance and with no reservation.
Silent prayer within our own heart leads us to the love and safety we yearn for. Our real spiritual nature becomes clearer to us, and we see that we weren't created by divine Love to be mercilessly burdened or to suffer.
Yet sometimes we get confused—stumbling along for hours, days, or even longer—because we don't take the time to go to God, our source, for renewal. We may become so involved with the demands of daily life that we accept suggestions that there isn't time to pray or that prayer can't help us anyway. When we believe these things, it increases the burden. Such thinking is the result of a very limited concept of God, claiming that Spirit and its creation are vague and remote—and that we are separate from God.
