UNINTERRUPTED GOOD

During the first week following the worst flash flood ever in Rapid City's history, I spent days bailing mud and water out of my house and my neighbor's. I was exhausted and feeling hopeless. Piles of debris, a damaged home without electricity and running water, my husband's business nearly washed away, cars in trees, all made life seem pretty bleak. So did the absence of our toddler children, whom, although in the loving care of grandparents living in another city, we sorely missed.

I had been praying on the fly. In the midst of shoveling wet mud, I had opened my thoughts to God. I affirmed that God was my source of strength, that He was divine Mind, the very inspiration for each step and activity. By opening up to His presence, I felt strengthened to take the next step. It wasn't complicated, just a steady moment-to-moment listening for divine messages of what to do next. As I claimed my connection to the Divine, the fatigue and exhaustion lifted. I was able to continue the hours of heavy cleanup work without interruption. And although I had experienced several days of diarrhea, I never felt weak or incapacitated.
