God got there first

Divine Love is always here to help and heal.

There were three children in my family, and we each loved to sit in the front seat when Mom was driving us somewhere. When it was almost time to go, we would race to stake our claim to the front position by getting there first. We all hoped that possession would be nine-tenths of the law. Usually, however, Mom would remember who had had the front seat last, and she would make us take turns.

The question of "who got there first" has helped me when I've had to face much tougher situations. Who is always there ahead of the problem, no matter what the situation? God. If I have tried my hardest to solve a problem, when my prayers feel like I'm hitting a brick wall, I have found it extremely comforting to remember that God got there first.
