I'm learning to see myself differently

It's fundamental to health and healing.

I was part of a group of military pilots working to develop proficiency in a new skill. The others improved day by day, but I got worse. My colleagues' encouragement was sincere and welcome. But sometimes it also stung, because up to that time I'd excelled at our work, and my ego was bruised. Over several days, I got so tense about it that I couldn't sleep.

Then, in the middle of a night that was as dark as my thought, I humbly turned to prayer. I thought I didn't know much about prayer, but it felt like the right thing to do.
